The top worldwide eBay powerseller ,accstation ,typically lists over 50,000 items at any one time and focuses mainly on the consumer electronics market.
With a feedback score of over 1.2 million with a 99.5% positive rate this power selling team knows how to go out there and get what it wants - sales!
Cell phones and PDAs make up the bulk of the items listed - over 26,000 current live listings. Also currently listed are over 10,000 electronic items, over 4,000 camera and photo items and over 4,000 computer and networking items.
To keep track of this volume of business special software is necessary. Sell your item, Turbo lister, selling manager and file exchange are just some of the software products available from eBay to help maximise sales and increase profits. For sales as large as the volume experienced by accstation even more specialised software is required to ensure the business runs smoothly.
accstation became a member of eBay in December 2001 and has steadily grown the business ever since turning it into the power house that it is today. Completed listings in a fifteen day period are over 100,000 with very few items failing to sell.
What helps accstation to stand out from the rest?
Most items are listed with free shipping. This immediately attracts attention and gets the bidders interested. They use fully biodegradable packaging and keep this to a minimum to reduce waste and save energy. The accstation store and About Us pages are themed green in keeping with their green awareness programme which they discuss in more detail in their About Us page.
Each listing description is well written with clear photographs designed to provide potential bidders with all the information they need. Payment, shipping and return policies are described fully in each listing as well as in the About Us page. This ensures that the bidder does not have to click away from the listing to get this important information.
From the feedback rating and comments received it is clear that there is a high standard of customer service and care.
Each of the above points can be kept in mind when you are listing your items. You may never become a top power seller but who knows? Keep listing!
