Has selling on eBay got you baffled? HammerTap to the Rescue!
those old movies where a beautiful woman would be in some dire
situation, and at the very last minute, just when you thought she was
doomed, a dashing hero would show up and save the day? Well, I’d like
to introduce the new hero in town—HammerTap!
I know you’re thinking this is a little far-fetched, but give me a
minute to explain. Think about it—selling on eBay can get you in some
pretty dire situations. For example, have you ever guessed wrong, and
invested in a product that didn’t sell for enough to make you a profit?
Imagine losing hundreds of dollars because you picked a product that
eBay buyers weren’t looking for. And how do you decide which days and
times are best to end your listings? Do you have to resort to guessing
when buyers are online looking for your product? Selling on eBay
requires dozens of decisions, and without the right information, those
decisions can cut into your profits. But there’s no need to despair!
HammerTap is here!
HammerTap lets you quickly and
easily look at what others are selling on eBay, through a specific
group closed eBay listings, to discover the answer to the questions you
have going through your mind:
- Will a product sell on eBay and, if so, for how much?
- How can I increase an eBay listing's chances of selling?
- How can I boost my profits on each and every listing I place on eBay?
- What are the eBay market trends for sellingmy specific product on eBay?
- What is the size of the market and who is my competition?
- What is my competition doing well that I can replicate?
- What is my competition missing that I can take advantage of, when selling the same product on eBay?
too good to be true? Well, this hero’s real. HammerTap uses data
licensed directly from eBay to provide you with market information on
your specific product, category or seller ID. It takes out all of the
guesswork as you create your listings.
Let’s take a brief tour:
