A Tisket, A Tasket, Don’t Put All Your Eggs Into eBay’s Basket! - Jun 28, 2010

Choosing eBay exclusively as a selling venue can be an expensive mistake. Changes in eBay policies over the past two years are admittedly not friendly to small sellers. Unless a seller is able to generate a substantial number of sales in a month, one or two unfavorable feedback ratings could devastate a seller’s DSRs. Degradation of DSR rating can result in higher fees or even being banned from eBay for a period of a month or more. Exploring alternatives such as Amazon, Bonanzle, Etsy, Boocoo Auctions, eCrater or even to set up a website is a way to hedge against possible eBay account problems.

Adding Technology To Your Wholesale Website: Multimedia - June 29th, 2010

[browsershot url="http://www.wholesalematch.com/blog/adding-technology-to-your-wholesale-website-multimedia/4097/" width="150px"]

Using multimedia components on a wholesale website can be an effective method of grabbing a viewer’s attention. Studies show that effective multimedia has a 71% higher impact than text alone. Poorly executed multimedia or using too much of it can have the opposite effect. Producing multimedia requires some necessary skills. If a webmaster does not possess those skills, the project should be outsourced. Through the process of idea creation, production, and revision, the goal of the media should be the central focus. The process of multimedia creation takes time and often a significant budget.

Sources of quality handbags at wholesale appear plentiful, at first. After evaluating the sources more closely, ii seems that most of the sellers of wholesale handbags are not actually wholesalers. This is apparent not only in the prices but also in returns and shipping policies. Handbagshopping.com is a company that has been in the business of selling handbags and accessories at wholesale for 20 years. Their business model is simple and effective: provide a wide variety of high quality products that sell well for their customers. Handbagshopping.com updates its inventory daily so buyers can be assured of the most current product availability.

Amazon Acquires Woot - More than a Daily Deal Site - June 30, 2010

[browsershot url="http://blog.auctionbytes.com/cgi-bin/blog/blog.pl" width="150px"]

The sale of Woot to Amazon was announced this week. Woot is a distributor which acquires merchandise from manufacturers and sells through a number of channels. Also offered are fulfillment services through a drop-ship program as well as direct sales to retailers. Woot.com’s Daily Deals website is by far the channel which generates their highest revenue. Amazon could leverage Woot’s distribution channels to sell overstock or returned items. Woot’s product acquisition sources will allow Amazon to enhance its own inventory offerings. Some Amazon marketplace sellers are concerned about competitive pricing which they may face on the Amazon platform.
