Yes, Buyers want low prices on quality products, but that doesn't necessarily mean an eBay DropShip Seller has to low-ball pricing to compete.
There are plenty of buyers who purchase mainly for value moreover the price and don't mind paying more to get it!
Matter of fact, trying to compete with competitive pricing is a mental pitfall, as much as being emotionally charged in selecting products to sell.
eBay’s default sort order for search results is Best Match. eBay have been honing the Best Match algorithm since 2008, considering your account details, before Cassini decides where to rank your listing in search results, such as:
Best Practice for new or intermediate sellers for listings to be seen by a huge audience of viewers to compete with the 'old boys' and grow a 'profitable' business is to use eBay's algorithms (protocols) criteria by establishing Keyword Relevancy between Photos, Title, Item Specifics and its Description.
This method evens out the playing field in a wide variety of search results where low competitive pricing is not the only factor to generate sales, but rather higher pricing and profits per sale, speaks louder for new or intermediate dropship sellers to profit more and grow faster.
No Technical Skills Required
There is no technical skills required to build high-ranking listings, but using applied techniques to manage a well-balanced inventory ratio between low-priced and high-priced product/profit, required to maintain consistent daily sales.
Using this applied technique, and other little known secrets to success, I built my eBay DropShip Business to a six-figure profitable venture in 2 years with only approximate 900 sales producing listings. Now subscribers of TheHelpPlus DropShip Training are building 5-figure profit income in less than 6 months using these techniques and more.
Other Applied Techniques
In addition to maintaining a well-balanced inventory ratio, another applied technique is used to begin fine-tuning inventory SALES DATA, by maintaining detailed Monthly Sales/Profit records to determine individual product listing's SALES FLOW. This valuable information is then applied to listing previously SOLD listings according to it's PROVEN highest buying months from start to finish, year after year.
Inventory Sales Management Applications
Tried and true sales data information has been used by (brick n' mortar) Retail Stores for eons. Tracking Sales flows of individual products develops a finely-tuned inventory, easier to manage rather than consistently researching new products, hoping for sales. Professional high-volume eBay Top Producing Sellers use these techniques together as a method to spend less time(Couple hours/day) in managing their business/inventory, and more free time to enjoy their family and friends.
Every Product has it's LOW and HIGH Buying Cycles
I learned how to fine-tune my inventory with previously sold products, modeled after Retail Store's restocking products that previously sold in its highest buying season, returning the same products to their shelves year after year. Every product has it's high and low buying cycles. Taking the guess-work out of IF a product will sell..... turns focused attention on WHEN it will sell....is the easy solution to get the most sales at higher profits out of every listing.
These Applied Management Techniques create a highly profitable smooth-running eBay DropShip Business used by the owners, while a Virtual Assistant performs the tasks of listing previously sold products, in its high buying cycle(s), every month, year after year.
Bottom-line is to re-think your scaling up methods of quickly listing products at low competitive prices and profits. This method encouraged by most Repricer/Autolister Services has no end to its means, like forever chasing a rabbit down a deep hole, until you're exhausted.
Owning your own business is meant to work to enhance your lifestyle and enjoy more freedom of your time -rather than- it owning so much of your time to keep it producing a profitable income preventing the enjoyment of the lifestyle it provides.
Ask yourself...what is your long-term goal and how do you want your business to serve your lifestyle changes?
