This is my first time attending a workshop on eBay...I must be missing something, I signed in, but do not see any workshop happening. Any one out there with info on the Bulk Listing workshop for today 7/14 at 10 am PST?
I would really like e bay to explain how I can use a relisting tool, to revise my items, when each item is a different one, We do not sell a million of the same items. Anyone have any help on this topic, since Ive been revising one item at a time and its very time consuming. Also I would like to know where my items are that I havent gotten to yet, they are not anywhere on e bay, yet Im still being charged to have them there?
The description find & replace works in the same way as the title find and replace. The only difference is your descriptions will contain HTML, as a safety feature Froo! Bulk Revision will not let you place HTML into listings.
Add to description.
The add to description amendment allows you to add additional information to your listings, this is useful as there are less restrictions when adding to description rather than revising a description (e.g. you can add to description even if an item has a bid.)
Simply type the text you wish to add to your listings:
The Returns Policy Amendment allows you to quickly replace your returns policies in bulk, this is very useful if your suppliers change their policies or if you decide you no longer wish to offer returns.
Select if returns are accepted or not, enter any further details regarding returns:
Start Price, Buy it Now & Reserve Price
Altering prices in bulk is easy with bulk revision: You can set a new price, increase by percentage or increase by amount. If you wish to decrease your prices simply add a minus character in front of your figure e.g.: -10
Enter the quantity that you would like to increase selected items by, e.g. if you have 5 and type 2 the new quantity will become 7. You can also decrease by an amount if you use a minus symbol.
The Dispatch Time amendment is useful for altering your dispatch times in bulk, for example if you are experiencing weather difficulties and have to delay your dispatch by a day.
Select your new dispatch time from the drop down list:
You can use the Froo! Bulk Revision tool to update your current live inventory to include the appropriate Item Condition. You can update items by category or other similar characteristics. The items don't all need to be identical in order to update/edit in bulk.
If Frooition has other information I'll let them jump in here and provide it.
As for the listings you said you can't find but are being charged for, I'll need more information to try and help you.
Are these listings currently active on eBay? If the listings are not active, then eBay won't have charged you a listing fee.
The PayPal Address Amendment allows you to alter the PayPal address for your selected listings.
Simply type the new PayPal address in the text box:
Motors Parts Compatibility:
You can now add the new eBay Motors Parts Compatibility to your live motors listing, select all the parts that qualify for a certain vehicle / group of vehicles and then choose motors Parts Compatibility.
You will then be able to specify a range of vehicles based on year, make, model, trim and engine.
Those particular vehicles will then be added to your parts listings as compatible vehicles and improve your search result positioning.
Select the relevant items, choose the appropriate item condition for the selection.
Your items will then benefit from the new eBay features and improved search standing.
As Ginger has mentioned we recommend filtering your search to select the items that need the relevent changes, for example the change to dispatch times may only apply to large items in a certain category, with Froo! Bulk Revision you can tailor the search to specific items.
Here we have detailed some typical scenarios where you will find Froo! Bulk Revision will save you time and money.
Feel free to offer your own scenarios and we will tell you if Froo! Bulk Revision would be suitable for you!
Q. I have misspelled a keyword in my titles and I need to quickly correct on many listings.
A. Use bulk revisions find and replace to change any of your content in your title or description. You can also use this method to add keywords you may have missed when originally listing your item, this keeps you competitive and your listings up to date.
Q. Due to adverse weather conditions there will be a delay in the normal dispatch/shipping of my items, how can I tell my buyers and assure them that their items are still to be shipped.
A. You can use the Add to description option to add a message to each of your listings to inform buyers of any additional information. Or you can also use Bulk Revision to increase the handling time on each of your listings, and when your dispatch/shipping is back to normal decrease it back to your normal dispatch time.
Q. I am a clothing seller, and I wish to increase the inventory of my blue dresses, but decrease the inventory of my red dresses. How do I use Bulk Revision to selectively increase / decrease my quantities.
A. Before you apply any amendment with Bulk Revision you can select which of you listings you would like to apply amends to. You can do this either by searching for certain criteria such as keywords, prices, start dates or auction types, or by individual checking the listings you would like to change. In this scenario you would first select all the blue dresses and decrease your inventory, then search of all red dresses and then increase the inventory in bulk for this selection.
Please advise best & quickest way for to list following: I have approx 600 part numbers all fit multiple applications-usually at least 6 different year makes and models for each of the part numbers It is extremely time consuming selecting each year make and model and then adding a footnote
My listings are all active, and I called and talked to ebay about this last week, and as Ive been reading alot of people are having the same problem. they do not show up when i go into search format to look, then I revised a few and went back to same search and they were there, so my question is why r they no where to be found until I revise. Our sales dropped dramatically because of this, as it has with others
