We all know eBay. The website was founded in 1995 as a kind of programming experiment in San José. eBay has since grown into one of the largest online trading platforms worldwide. Hence it's so well known. Just about anyone, business or individual, can sell all kinds of stuff on eBay. On the eBay marketplace you will find products from all over the world.
But what if you want to sell business products yourself via eBay? Not a bad idea; eBay is even the most important source of income for about 1500 Dutch families.
When you use ProductFlow to offer products on eBay, you can also choose to offer the products on other marketplaces. Think of the well-known platforms such as Amazon, Cdiscount, Google Shopping and bol.com.
The eBay marketplace platform is huge. The worldwide sellers reach a broad target group: more than 600,000 unique visitors per day. Especially if you sell on behalf of a company, you have a great chance of increasing your income. Potential customers prefer to buy items from a recognized and reliable company. Do you have such a company? Then selling via eBay is certainly not a bad idea.
Simply register with eBay as a 'company' or 'business seller'. That way you open a business account where you enter a company name. You then build a reputation under your recognizable name. If you do a good job, you will receive positive reviews from customers that others can see again. Do you sell a lot and are you known for fast shipping, good products and excellent service? Then eBay gives you the status 'Top seller'. Because customers trust you more, your sales will increase, but you also pay more to eBay.
Unique visitors per day

Conquering the rest of the world completely independently is not easy. Unfortunately, it is not so easy to send a package far across the border.
