With over 100 million buyers, eBay is one of the world’s largest online marketplaces. Listing there does not require any upfront costs. Moreover, every transaction to your account is backed with eBay Seller Protection, so you can sell with confidence. This is what makes eBay one of the most attractive marketplaces for both sellers and buyers.

eBay sales are a great way to increase turnover and selling on different marketplaces is essential for any business. Since setting up the automatic exports with X-Cart our sales have increased by 20%

What to sell: do your goods qualify?

It’s not for nothing the apparel store saw such an increase in sales: Fashion, electronics and collectibles are among the leaders in the best-selling list. Dresses, handbags, shoes and suits. Laptops, cameras, game consoles. RC cars, stamps collections, action figures and dolls. Check if the items you’re going to sell are not prohibited and connect your store to eBay. One small step for a human, one giant leap for your Business 😉
