With the Listing Scheduler, you can
create an auction campaign where a product (or products) is listed multiple times. The concept of the Listing Scheduler is to
create campaigns easily by means of a campaign template.
As with any scheduled auction, the goal is to target a specific audience. For example, if you sell insomnia supplements,
you would schedule that campaign for after midnight hours (so that
the auction ends after midnight) to target when insomnia sufferers
are most likely to go online looking for some help.
Creating a new campaign with the Listing Scheduler is a 2 step process:
Under Settings click Listing Campaigns.
- A distribution chart will appear.
The chart is divided into seven days with each day being divided
into eight - 3 hour - blocks of time beginning at midnight. As of
now, the chart allows you to choose between all three formats but
that will change because eBay only allows 1 listing per product in
the fixed price or BIN formats.
- Check the Default Campaign box
- Enter the number of auctions you
want into a time slot. For example, 1 after midnight. (It's best to
keep the number low, even at 1) Continue for all time slots that are
appropriate for this campaign.
- Save campaign.
Under Inventory, open a product you
want to include in a campaign. (Inventory > Manage Inventory >
Select Product > Toolbox > Listing Schedule.)
- Add products when
campaigning more than one product.
- Enter start and end dates.
- Enter number of listings. When
completed, you will see the total number of listing for products
that you want throughout that time spread. You can edit the number
of listings per product by clicking on the Edit tab in the product
- Check the Auto calculate
listings based on formula box.
- Find the campaign under the
product box and click Change to select a campaign. Select a
campaign and SellerCloud will calculate listings based on the
selected campaign. This is complicated but simply put, SellerCloud
will apply the percentage of distribution in the selected campaign
to distribute the listings in this campaign.
- Click Approve from the
Action Menu. This must be done in order to proceed.
- Now click the Generate Campaign
