- eBay Trading Assistant Consultant Professionals
eBay offers listing upgrade, which
have been shown to heighten the probabilty than an item will sell,
as well as increase the final selling price. As
a seller, you may request any of the below Listing Upgrades. Except
where noted, listing upgrades carry a charge that will be added
to your invoice.
will NEVER charge you for eBay Listing Upgrades that you did not
specifically request on your signed contract*
In some instances, IslandAuctionAssist
will select Listing Upgrades for an auction listing, even if a
client did not do so, if we feel that an item is unusually interesting
or especially valuable. In this case only, our clients
are NOT responsible for ANY of the additional listing upgrade
Please note: In no way does eBay,
or IslandAuctionAssist, assert that any of the Listing Upgrades
are guaranteed to affect sale of an item, or final selling price.
Although statisitcally proven as 'effective', Listing Upgrades
are not foolproof, as market conditions and other variables may
affect an auction's outcome.
A Gallery Picture
which allows bidders and potential buyers to view a small thumbnail
of your item when browsing eBay categories or viewing search results,
is an absolute necessity.
A Subtitle may
also be added to your item listing. This subtitle will appear
under the title in smaller type when eBay users are browsing eBay
categories or viewing search results. A subtitle offers more textual
detail about the item, and may be helpful. The use of a subtitle
allows an UNLIMITED number of photos
and MPEG videos of your item on each eBay auction listing!
Compare this with eBay's usual cost of picture photo pack with
extra large photos. ($1.00 for up to six extra large photos; $1.50
for the eBay maximum of 12 extra large photos) This means that
you do no pay ANY additional charges for photos, even if your
item requires 27 photos in order to be visually documented properly.
Because we host the photos and video ourselves on IslandAuctionAssist's
dedicated server, there is no limit to what we can do.
The Bold option
sets your item's title in boldface type. This
is often an inexpensive strategy for setting the item apart from
the field of other similar items in eBay categories, or when viewing
search results. The cost for the Bold option is $1.
The Border option
is another useful visual aid that adds a colored band both to
the top and bottom of the item listing, when browsing eBay categories
or viewing search results. The cost for adding the Border option
option adds a bright colored background to the whole of the listing,
when browsing eBay categories or viewing search results. We have
found highlight to be an extremely effective marketing tool. The
cost of this option is $5.
The Features Plus!
Option will display the item in the prominent position of the
Featured Items section at the top of its category. The item will
additionally display in the usual, non-featured list of items
in that same category, further down from the Featured Items area,
of course. The cost for this option is $19.95
The Gallery Featured
option will display the item at the highest part of the search
results page, above the general Picture Gallery. Items in this
area of the eBay page are above even the Featured Plus! items,
and are spaced less densely. The cost for this service is $29.95.
(Please note: The exact position
among the other items at the top of the category page is affected
by factors such as the timing of the listing, as well as the number
of other Gallery Featured items in the category selected. Therefore,
eBay cannot guarantee that all Gallery Featured listings will
receive the same exposure.)
The Home Page Featured
option garners the greatest exposure possible on eBay. Items with
this option selected will have the possibility of displaying in
three places: On eBay's home page, on eBay's Hub Page, and also
in eBay's special Featured Items section which appears when users
first link to the eBay site. The cost for this service is $59.99;
2 or more listings with this option selected are $79.95. When
listing mor than two items at the same time with this option selected,
that same $79.95 total applies. The highest that a seller may
be charged is $79.95, regardless of how many listings utilize
Listing in 2 Categories
is another option available. This often has the benefit of increasing
the number of Bay buyers that will find your item on eBay, as
it is will b listed in two distinct category listings simultaneously.
(Listing in two categories doubles the Insertion Fee, as well
as the fees for most listing upgrades (Bold, Gallery, and so on).
Fees for Home Page Featured, Motors Home Page Featured, and Final
Value Fees remain the same whether you list in one category or
