If you are looking for ways to make your business more efficient, improve customer service or streamline shipping, solutions for these and many other critical areas of your eBay business are available starting this week. You can try them for free with new Selling Manager Applications.
All sellers can take advantage of these new tools – all you need is a subscription to Selling Manager (now FREE) or Selling Manager Pro. From within Selling Manager and Selling Manager Pro, any new applications you subscribe to will appear under the Applications tab. (This tab will begin rolling out today; all subscribers should see it in My eBay by the end of this week.)
From sourcing product to shipping your items, Selling Manager Applications are designed to make your business easier to run. Best of all, every application is available with a free trial (usually between one week and 30 days) – so you can try it out before you subscribe. Most Selling Manager Applications charge a subscription fee; however, you will find many free applications as well.
Here’s how you get started:
1) Subscribe to Selling Manager (now offered for free) or Selling Manager Pro. (Skip this step if you are already a subscriber.)
If you have feedback about the new applications, or if you have questions, please drop by either the Selling Manager or Selling Manager Pro discussion boards. We have special threads open on both boards where you can share your thoughts and ask questions.
2) Go to the tab labelled “Applications” and continue to the Selling Manager application directory. You can also view all the applications directly at http://applications.ebay.com.
3) Browse or search for the applications that interest you the most -- customer support, inventory, research and reporting, and more.
4) Try out applications for FREE that will help manage your business on eBay. Remember, each application has a free trial period so you can try it out before you commit to purchase.
Don’t delay ... take advantage of the free trial offers to get the right application in place for the upcoming holiday selling season!
