Scheduling an eBay listing with a
Product Group Series will enable you to create a campaign of multiple products. This will eliminate the legwork of scheduling an auction for each
individual product. This feature is usually utilized when creating a campaign for similar products. When scheduled as a series, SellerCloud will post
all products in the Product Group in a random order, beginning at the
given start date and according to the interval schedule.
The following steps outline how to
auction with a Product Group Series.
- Hover on the Inventory and scroll
down to Product Group. Select Product Series from side menu.
- Click Create New Series.
- Select Company and Product Group.
Read more about Product Group.
- Enter values into the remaining
fields (explained below) and save.
- An Action Menu will appear where
you can preview and generate listings.
- Listings Per Product – It's
probably better to keep it low or even at 1. You don't want to
compete against your own listing. Read about eBay's Duplicate Listing policy.
- Selling Format – Campaigns work
in all three selling formats.
- Posting Interval - This feature
capitalizes on the fact that eBay is more likely to display, for a
search result, an auction ending in five minutes than one ending in
five hours. By spacing the posting time, and by extension the ending
time, you may influence eBay search results and sell more inventory
from this product group.
- Listing Duration – duration of
listing from the time product is posted.
- Start Date and Time – Date and
Time of when posting begins.
- Enable Blackout Time – the time
of day you do not want to sell your item. SellerCloud will not post any auctions during that time.
- Recurring – Selecting this
option will enable SellerCloud to continually post your product at
the set frequency until the set end date. Items that sell well should have a shorter recurring date. Important Note: The Windows service "Product Group Auction Services" must be enabled in order to allow a recurring auction. This can be enabled by SellerCloud Support.
The Auction of any given item will
continually post until the end date or until the inventory has sold
