The Devil lies in the details and so does productivity. This applies to the last word in eBay Amazon listing, which, as has been expressed by innumerable sellers that presently perform in these marketplaces successfully, is extremely sensitive to otherwise miniscule details that often go unnoticed. Here is a gist of some of the most common mistakes that sellers make, usually, the new and inexperienced ones that can cost them just about everything, starting from visibility to purchase motivation in prospective buyers…

Wrong spellings –

This is one of those termites that bite their way imperceptibly into the very core of Amazon eBay listing management practices. Wrong spellings often raise doubts in the mind of buyers about the genuineness of the products that eventually leads them to look for other sellers instead.

Poor quality pictures –

Crisp white no nonsense setting is the norm when it comes to posting pictures of products in any top ecommerce marketplace. Images with a thumb sticking out from the background or picture of bedspreads and pet dog’s tail for that matter will be viewed with lesser purchase motivation than images that are professionally taken in neat white background.

Inadequate / mismatched descriptions –

Products that don’t match their descriptions or products with incomplete descriptions are never seen in the top ten pages. Say for example, if you have listed a bottle of body lotion and have not mentioned quantity of product in every bottle, be assured that buyers will look elsewhere.

Lack of product identifiers –

This basically refers to mentioning the MPNs, GTINs, UPCs etc so that locating the product becomes easy for the platform when product search is conducted by prospective buyers.

Lack of reviews and ratings –

Buyers today, can filter their search in top ecommerce marketplaces on the basis of reviews and ratings posted in their favor. Therefore, products that have not gathered a good amount of customer feedback can get pushed into invisibility. A number of high quality eBay Amazon listing software offers organic review generation features that yield tangibly productive results.

Products that are not market fit –

Listing products that are least likely to sell or products that may be way out o season can render the concerned listing completely nonresponsive to target traffic.

No deals and offers –

Deals, offers and ability to make the most of every purchase is the primary reason why buyers flood into eBay and Amazon in the first place. Therefore, if sellers choose to sell at marketplace and then top it up with handling and shipping charges, the entity can be rest assured that his / her listing will gather nothing but dust.

Here’s How You Can Lose Your Amazon Listing In 10 Days!

Losing your listing in Amazon is actually easier than making something out of it and no one knows it better than clueless inexperienced sellers. Here are some of the most common and often funny ways in which scores of over smart entities managed to kick their own listing under the belt…

Listing products that Amazon does not entertain –

It does not matter whether you are selling in eBay, Walmart, Amazon, Rakuten, or any other e commerce marketplace for that matter, if you list products that the marketplace does not support, it could be a matter of days before it gets scrapped.

For example, you cannot slyly list your pet canary at attractive discounts. Attempt to make it look like a soft toy can get you kicked out without a second chance.

Copy pasting competitors listing –

You may have loved your competitor’s listing; but there are better ways of expressing your love than copying it word to word. Image to image may be excusable because sellers do have an option to integrate with the same image if the products are same. Copy-paste listing is always followed by a hue can cry made by sellers that have been breached.

Stuffing product titles with just about every word that buyers are likely to type –

This practice is called keyword stuffing and many sellers take it a little too far. On many occasions, buyers were taken aback with mini essays on written in place of titles, resulting in a sort of confusion that left them wondering what exactly they were buying! Amazon does not entertain such tom foolery and slaps a stamp of invisibility on such listing.

Slipping in one of the teeny tiny promotional messages in the images –

Watermarking and adding symbols of attractive discounts in images is not allowed in Amazon. The practice is considered strictly black hat. Sellers that are dumb enough to take such risks often drown imperceptibly somewhere in the corner.

Saying no to softwares –

Attempting listing in Amazon with Amazon listing softwares is as sad as rowing your kayak with two teaspoons. On using softwares, you can make the most of automation which is indispensable while performing in this marketplace.

Bad reviews –

Really bad reviews are often left by buyers that have had substandard purchase experience with concerned seller in Amazon. While on many occasions the reasons for writing such stinkers is valid, on many others, the reasons could be perfectly excusable.
However, whether justified or unjustified, if a buyer has slapped you with a bad review, you need to address it immediately through organic means… lest; it will be your listing and Amazon’s boot!

5 Things That Can Pummel Your Amazon Listing To Extinction

While selling in Amazon, you cannot allow your listing to be a cause for disappointment. At all times, you would want your products to feature on the first page of search results and preferably in the Buy Box as well, winning maximum sale and profits. The truth is, there are hundreds of sellers in Amazon right now that can state their horror stories surrounding how their listing became wallpaper with the blink of an eye. 5 of these reasons can be stated as follows…

Tricks and hacks –

Many short-cut geniuses often resort to tricks and hacks to make their listing more visible than it actually deserves to be. Questionable methods like keyword stuffing in titles, adding promotional text in images etc can be mentioned in this respect. While it is true that such acts can result in instant visibility, the fact is, the celebrations don’t last very long. Soon after Amazon spots the cheating, the listing is instantly pushed to invisibility.

Softwares are traps –

Sellers that believe that Amazon listing software are unnecessary, may be in for rude surprises within days of operation. Listing softwares for top performing marketplaces are known for automating critical essentials like listing import and export, pricing / re pricing, updating offers deals and more. If you are addressing these essentials manually and your competitors are using softwares, be assured that your visibility will be thoroughly compromised.

Blah blah blah…

Innovation is expected in Amazon listing considering the pace at which the platform improves its level of excellence. Therefore, bare basic scratch level listing can be an invitation to invisibility. At all times, you need to ask, ‘what is so different about my listing that will make it better and more convincing than competing listing’? The solutions will start surfacing soon after.

What on earth is Optimization?

It does not matter if you are a small seller in Amazon or a large, if you are immune to optimization, there is nothing that can fetch you an inch of visibility. Using optimization tools and support solutions is one of the safest and most reliable ways to gain and maintain ranking in this marketplace.

Did you know… Amazon sellers that are present in other top platforms like Walmart require special listing aid for easy and error free listing management. Carrying out proper Amazon Walmart integration can help in this respect.

Look… seller X has the same listing as mine!

No… same-pinching your way through this will certainly not help. If there is another seller that has copied your listing head to toe, and is street smart enough to make dough from it, you are likely to be in the losing end of things.

Breaking the ice on Amazon for higher sales and profit isn’t rocket science. But neither is it any simpler. Thousands of sellers are struggling to make decent revenue on this largest marketplace today.

If you have a storefront on Amazon yourself, you would know the amount of work and countless hours it takes to maintain a high and consistent sale. But what if we tell you that you can increase your sales – double it, in fact – with few smart ways in a month or less?

Exciting, eh?

They aren’t secrets by any mean. Top and successful Amazon sellers know about these ‘smart ways’ well. And you’re about to too.

Here’s how you can 2x your Amazon sales in a month—without even doing anything exceptional-

  1. Automate listing and save time– You first need time to do things, right? So cut back on all the tasks that are irrelevant, time-consuming and that can be automated, like Amazon listing, feed optimization, inventory management. Bank on top (and affordable) e-commerce software solution to integrate your Amazon store with various other marketplaces, webstores and comparison search engines, right from Magneto Amazon to Amazon-Google Shopping.
  2. Get active on Facebook– Facebook is the largest pool of potential customers, regardless your industry. Sadly, not many online vendors use it to the fullest. Don’t be one of them! Get active on Facebook, if aren’t already. Reach out to your target audience, engage them—address their specific needs and promote your products strategically. Don’t shy away from investing in Facebook advertisement.
  3. Talk to your old customers– If customer retention ranks at the bottom of your priority list, time to give that list a reshuffle. Get connected to your old customers; have an impressive post-sale approach for your buying customers. Talk to them via emails (or Social media, IMs). Ask them about their overall experience and address their issues personally. This increase sakes and also builds good store credibility and can even trigger Mouth-of-Word marketing.
  4. Push customers to leave reviews– When approaching your old/current customers, push them to leave good reviews and ratings on Amazon. Of course, you don’t want too pressing though. Be strategical and try to ‘win’ their reviews. When confused, look at your successful competitors and understand how they are gaining more reviews.
  5. Get ready to compromise on your profit margin– Being competitive on Amazon is one of the important success factors for online vendors. So to make higher sales, you must be ready to compromise with small profit margin. Set the price of your products low; Amazon and customers both would love it. To that, low priced products have more chances to win ‘Buy Box’, which could be a big thing.
  6. Offer sensible discounts– Offering continuous discounts throughout the season is one of the biggest mistakes new online sellers make. Map a decent pricing strategy and offer your products on exclusive discounts only when it makes more sense—only when you’re sure of higher ROI.

These are 6 smart ways with which you can double your Amazon store sales in one month or less. Of course, there’s a lot more you must be considerate of. If you’re thoughtful enough when making crucial decisions, you would be able to boost your sales rather easily.

Totally different, however, given the current high market competition there, cutting a decent profit margin is a bit difficult. Thousands of vendors already struggle to make desired sales.

Are you planning to soon launch an Amazon store?

To help you put forth the right step in the right direction, here are 6 important yet overlooked steps you should take before the official launch of your to-be money making Amazon store-

  • Do a thorough keyword research

  • About 55 percent of online shoppers start their product search on Amazon; meaning, you can make a great deal of sales if only you rank higher in the search results. This makes doing a thorough keyword research very important. There exist a range of online tools and guides to help you find relevant keywords in your niche. Look around for such tools and find high traffic-low competition keywords for your products.

  • Learn how to optimize your Amazon store

  • There’s a lot more than just the keywords to rank higher on the search result of Amazon. There’s a range of factors that comes into play, including (rich and) descriptive product titles and descriptions, product reviews, right product categorization, competitive pricing, and additional discounts.

So read all the official policies and agreement terms of this marketplace to understand things better.

So learn from them; see the kind of marketing channels they are using, their pricing strategy, when they are offering additional discounts, their post-sales approach and so forth. Know these and map your own strategies accordingly.

    Things To Consider Before Choosing eBay FBA

    You could be an eBay seller, but you can still rely on Amazon to fulfill your orders successfully. While it is true that eBay as one of the top marketplaces has its own means of order completion with its own set of benefits, choosing eBay FBA has its unique advantages that can often supersede the former. Quick, effective and effortless order completion has always been possible with FBA. This is followed by the advantage of being completely relieved of the hassles associated with storage, picking, packing, shipping etc. In short, scoring high reviews and ratings with FBA is a massive possibility.

    On the flip side though, there are certain factors that may compel you to question the applicability of this format of fulfillment to your business. Here are some factors that you need to consider before choosing eBay FBA…

  • To begin with, FBA for eBay products can cause some significant drainage to your investments if especially of you are clueless about FBA fee calculations. Considering the fact that fees for different products are different based on factors like size, weight, delivery area etc. you need to enlighten yourself with the profitability of FBA in favor of your business before you go for the same.
  • Secondly, as far as your clients are concerned, there may be some confusion about them ordering from eBay but receiving an Amazon parcel instead. This is mainly because buyers are usually unaware of the intricacies of order completion in different marketplaces and are also rightfully justified in their lack of knowledge. This again can intrigue the buyers to check similar products in Amazon listing rather than approaching eBay for the same.
  • Thirdly, succeeding completely and all-inclusively in FBA for eBay calls for proper integration of the two platforms. Poor integration may lead eBay sellers to lose track of their products in Amazon warehouses which again can cause significant increase in storage bills especially for slow moving products. It is true that the layout of FBA is such that most sellers experience loss of control on their inventory on subscribing for the same. However, with proper integration, you can retain maximum control of your inventory eve over cross platform performance.
  • Besides this, while subscribing to FBA, eBay sellers must be very careful about coding every individual product flawlessly as well as fulfilling all other requirements that FBA may call for without errors. The rest is assured to fall in place by itself giving way to a hassle-free and productive route to order completion.

    Make Your Amazon Feed More Discoverable With These Tips

    Product discoverability in Amazon has always been a challenge. Competition in this top marketplace is always at the highest and just about every seller is engaged in putting their best foot forward using the same set of tools, softwares and strategies. So, with everyone doing their level best, the chance of being discovered by Amazon search engines still remains a ‘chance’ and no more. However, on the brighter side of things, there are a few good ways to get over this situation and make a real difference to gain a functional edge over competition, and mostly, this has got everything to do with improving listing practices.

    As of now, improvement in Amazon listing begins and ends with feed optimization. This does not refer to the regular approach but a sort of, customized approach to make the feed uniquely compatible with the search engines as well as the buyers who launch their search for the same. Using the right set of keywords in the title of the products is more than just mandatory. However, to stuff the titles with 50 odd keywords that make no sense when read by buyers can compromise the interest of Amazon and can have the seller removed from the platform. Short titles with bang-on keywords is necessary. If this can be achieved by using softwares, sellers should not hesitate to approach the same. Seeking professionals for customized assistance can also help tremendously.

    Secondly, it is necessary to power pack the descriptions with information that buyers will best benefit from. It is alright to get descriptive and even narrative if you have something valuable to add to the resource. Using nonsensical expressions and exclamations compromises the professional outlook of the listing. This may reflect poorly on the genuineness of the listing thereby compromising on the intent of buyers to complete their transaction.

    Basically, you can think of the type of feed inputs in comparison shopping management of top sites and frame your listing in Amazon in its lines. This will keep you in track with what buyers want, which will eventually give you the push required to boost your visibility in this mega marketplace. But at any point of time, it is necessary to remember that you will have to stick to the listing rules as stated by Amazon.

    Last but never the least; you need to manage your reviews well. Inviting reviews for successful buyer engagements while responding comprehensively to negative reviews can improve believability of listings which can be a blessing for improving discoverability.

    Understanding Supply Chain Management To Improve eBay Amazon Inventory Control

    Stephen Posted On - June 24, 2016

    Amazon eBay inventory management

    Rating: 5.0/5 (1 vote cast)

    Inventory management process of an average e commerce seller often seems to begin and end with the movement of their stock through single or multiple warehouses. It has often been seen that any kind of poor performance in the part of the seller like delay in completing orders, order cancellation, over and under selling etc has been linked with the failure to keep in touch with the basics. However, taking a closer look, it can be seen that the issues may lie in the web of supply chain management which any and every seller is a part of.

    Say for example, a certain retailer that houses a list of products gets his / her stock from some wholesaler or a few wholesalers. These wholesalers again get their stock from the respective brands that manufacture the products. Again, sellers who manufacture their own products get their raw materials from some other provider / providers. It can so happen that the delays may arise in order completion because of unavailability of products with the wholesalers or some other slip in their part.

    So, as far as improving overall inventory management process is concerned, it is important for e commerce sellers to not just integrate with the immediate factors, but also the peripheral necessities. Most Amazon eBay inventory management softwares as of today are incomplete in this respect and the sellers may be required to fall back on other means of integration with their source providers. This can often get a little burdensome for those who may not have been planning and predicting their stock and sale from weeks before hand.

    Basically, there are a few simple yet effective ways to maintain harmonious supply chain management in midsized to large business ventures and planning and predicting sale from weeks ahead is only the beginning of it all. Establishing end to end automation and tallying it perfectly with the listing (especially those that display the number of items left in stock) is more than just imperative. Many eBay Amazon listing softwares are equipped to integrate seamlessly with the inventory management system, keeping buyers updated about the sock limits without the sellers having to put manual efforts into the same.

    Pre planning and unclogged communication (seller to wholesaler and seller to buyers) is required at all times. Serious sellers who aim to make their businesses blossom can also seek professional assistance on this critical matter.

    eBay Amazon Seller Secrets No One Wants To Share

    Thomas Posted On - June 23, 2016

    Rating: 5.0/5 (1 vote cast)

    We have all come across the phrase ‘Honesty is the best policy’ and there are ample reasons why this phrase holds relevance as well. E commerce sellers who are performing in the top marketplaces of eBay and Amazon would also say the same. Basically, when you are selling in these no nonsense marketplaces, you are required to abide by the rules to the last word. Hacks and tricks and bending the rules are often awarded with suspensions.

    When asked, almost all sellers raise their hands and say they are the infallible rule abiding lot. However, taking a closer look a number of secrets have been discovered that no one wants to share. Here are four of the hush-hush methods that sellers often use when no one’s watching…

    Long titles:

    This is a classic black hat feed optimization technique that most eBay Amazon listing softwares with optimization benefits don’t support. Here, the sellers are tempted to pack in as many keywords in their product titles as possible so as to enhance discoverability of the same in the search engines of the respective marketplaces. This is way against the will of the platforms which rests at titles that are about 80 characters long. Very long titles are usually confusing for the buyers to read and understand making them less attractive to the same thereby diminishing their chances of being purchased. Neither eBay nor Amazon takes this slip casually but sellers still give their best shot at it!

    False scarcity:

    Not many Amazon seller softwares would offer the advantage of showing false scarcity, but then there are those that do. False scarcity basically refers to showing false deficiency in the listing which creates a sense of urgency among the prospective buyers to leap at the offers before it gets sold out. So, even if you have 100 items left in the stock, your listing will display only 3 left or only 2 left if not 1. This is one of the easiest ways to get prospective buyers to complete their orders at an instant than stocking things up in their carts.

    A made up review or two:

    It’s a shame but many sellers often do it to improve their sale history. This happens especially when the sellers receive a handful of poor reviews on their products or their order completion methods. If discovered, such stunts are usually awarded with strict warnings if not instant suspension of account.

    Times When Amazon Sellers Vie eBay

    Daniel Posted On - May 30, 2016

    Amazon Sellers Vie eBay on Magento
    VN:F [1.9.22_1171]
    Rating: 5.0/5 (1 vote cast)

    The Amazon v/s eBay war is likely to continue for ages to come for many reasons than one. The platforms currently occupying the No. 1 and No. 2 places in the world of e commerce vastly differ from each other in their nature, assurance for best buyer experience being the only factor where they match. However, there are times when Amazon sellers are seen to vie eBay performers for a number of advantages that they seem to have over the former. If you take a close look, these reasons actually appear to make eBay more profitable for sellers than Amazon.

    To begin with, eBay listing is more luscious in comparison with Amazon listing. Considering the variety of products that can be sold in this platform in a variety of conditions, it only made sense for eBay to make the listing more defined as compared with Amazon. Right from the images to the title to description of the condition in which the product is sold, contributes to offering best purchase experience in the part of the buyers.

    Secondly, no one can deny the fact that seller exposure in eBay is irresistible. On clicking on a certain product in eBay following search for the same, buyers get to see vivid seller information at the side of the screen. While it is true that power sellers in eBay usually take the cake in this respect, even the smaller sellers are better exposed in eBay than they would ever be in Amazon. Basically growth as a seller has greater possibility in eBay than the latter.

    The spread of allowed product categories in eBay is anytime more tempting than Amazon. From refurbished products to unique items and antiques, you can get anything and everything in eBay and that too with ample value for every penny spent on it. Amazon has a very wide product category but not as spread-out as eBay. This is one of the reasons why a greater number of sellers can find place in eBay than Amazon.

    Fourthly, Amazon has never been a place for hobby selling. If you are selling in Amazon, you will have to go knee deep in using automation solutions and carrying out proper store integrations to get some chance at profits. For example, if you are a Magento powered store owner, you will have to carry out Magento Amazon integration without fail irrespective of how small or established you may be. Hobby sellers in eBay don’t have to take such loads on their shoulders.

This feature ensures that sellers are amply protected from putting in efforts in those listings that could get rejected by Amazon. It is a very sophisticated feature and can be lifesaving at times.

    The feature of receiving automatic shopping cart solution to Amazon product updates is also way too important to overlook.

Thankfully, this essential feature can now be availed as a part of regular listing softwares for Amazon, all thanks to the efforts of motivated e commerce solution developers.

    Besides this, features like ASIN matching tools, features for tracking performance post listing etc are imperative in these solutions for the simple reason that they make the process of putting up products in Amazon so easy, effective and profitable.

    2016 has brought with a bouquet of improvements in the present version of Netsuite. Being one of the leading store building shopping cart solutions available to the masses, frequent face lifts is but expected. As far as version 2016 is concerned, applicability is stretched over a wide range of users including retailers, wholesale distributors, manufacturers and even service companies for that matter. One of the most cherished improvements revolves around the feature of streamlining and optimizing order entries followed by harmonious order fulfillment.

    Enhanced flexibility for vendor management and multibook accounting with Netsuite OneWorld is also counted among the dazzling features to look out for and experience. Extremely flexible and powerful revenue recognition has also been applauded by Netsuite users worldwide.

    Basically, with all these features and more, users of Netsuite are expected to have greater control on their stores than ever before. At the same time, they will also not need to depend on too many additional software solutions, tools or even plug-ins from third party providers making the process of overall operations lighter and easier to manage. However, when it comes to performing in top platforms like eBay and Amazon, the users of this enhanced shopping cart store building solution is still required to push enhanced integration. As many Amazon performers have already expressed, it is imperative to have Netsuite Amazon integration carried out to perfection if sellers wish to experience optimum operational improvements.

    It is true that overall improvement of the web stores of the concerned e commerce merchants following the latest improvements in Netsuite is an almost guaranteed. But addressing the matter of multichannel operation especially the critical everyday basics like listing management, inventory control, tracking and maintaining customer details etc. still requires added attention. Say for example, for sellers who may be expecting to see an urgent improvement in their eBay or Amazon listing management may have to rely on high quality third party software solutions and attempt proper integration of the same with their stores. Netsuite in itself will not be a foolproof, complete or magical aid to it.

    In a nutshell, while there is whole lot to look out for in the 2016 version of Netsuite, sellers will have to be wise while dismissing all third party aid and assistance for adding or powering up existing features in their e commerce setups. As far as investments in additional solutions are concerned, users of Netsuite may still have to keep their options open.

Importing and exporting data from the web store to Amazon can also be nothing more than a one click affair. Besides this, Amazon seller can also make the most of the fact that listing softwares always assure flawlessness in the process which is impossible to attain when the task is attempted manually.
