Default Why do Chinese sellers end and relist?

I see it all the time!
They have a good product. It's selling. They end and relist.
WHY?
What reasons do they have?

eBay have told me in the past: listing new, you are out in the wilderness and your listing sits in the middle of nowhere until it starts gathering sales.

In research I have done: others tell me for eBay (and Amazon) there is a 'honeymoon' period - when first listing, you get a mini boost - which is lost after 2 weeks. (This makes sense - else people listing will never ever have listings seen!)

Any thoughts?

Thanks.

I think it's more likely their listings are being taken down by eBay.

Could be what you mentioned though. I've noticed the new listing boost in the past.

Simple, they take the items down BEFORE ebay or VERO get a hold of them and take then down for them.

I have noticed that sales are slow until you start selling 3-5 items and them that slowly start to increase. I am just wondering how to be on the front page of the search. But I guess that all depends on what is typed in for a particular search.

guys, the chinese, 99% aren't selling ⊗⊗⊗⊗.
(a big 1% are though!!)
the listings i'm referring to are mainly cheap items.
the item is not copy or anything else illegal. it will be an item sold by them and 20 other sellers.
get 200 sales. and then end.
makes no sense.

ending 200 sales is more rare. more likely is say 20 sales.
if i have a listing that had 20 sales, i would never end.

Maybe they are unaware of the option to keep the listing active (not visible, but keeps the watchers, views, ranking etc) once it sells out

@james13v, yes, i believe they get a boost definitely if new.
but how do u know this? what are you basing your assumptions on?
just wondering if u had any thoughts extra.

@jakobrockz one thing is for sure is that those damn chine are crazy + not so intelligent. but no, i don't believe it's because they don't know the system. some of the sellers are BIG sellers with 100,000+ feedback.

my guess is: they must know 'something'.

Here's my guess, whenever they get 20 sales they relist it because those "Agent" might report the item # to eBay but when they relist it, they get a new item # again. The item # that was reported it has ended, so they won't get a hit.

There is a boost at the begining so i suppose if its one of these have 2000 bin types that adds up keep relisting them every 2 weeks , get 5 sales as the stock is centralised and on 10 accounts they happy selling a few each account its what i do, only difference is i prefer to sell loads at 99p then be top constant.

Well I sell products from china and they are definitely not cheap, although I pay very little for them. $18 item sells for $70. I have a niche that was unfilled. I also took one of th product to a local manufacturing plant and they wanted over $100 to duplicate not counting mold fees, etc. WTF. So you can make money with chinese suppliers, I am in the process of having replicas of what I am buying made in a factory for $5 so my cost will go down substantially. Just saying

I've had my products replicated by my competitors in China, and trust me.. they were NOTHING like my American made parts. You can claim they aren't cheap, but that's really what China is known for. You're not getting quality, from $.50 an hour workers, that have to be prevented from throwing themselves off the factory roof, by the use of suicide nets.

Well my point is NOT all products from China are cheap, the products I buy are as good or better than what I could get in USA. My prices are so low that my feedback almost always says "way better than I expected" Just saying, do you homework, buy one to assess quality and then sell, sell, sell. I do this partime and clear $60k a year.

Default Re: Why do Chinese sellers end and relist?

I was researching some of the Cassini search engine, and one guy mentioned basically recycling listings that weren't selling as well if you know the product category is doing well. So while there is a benefit to having the sales history, ultimately it seems lately that Ebay is factoring in CTR/CTS a lot more for ranking listings for the particular search. Fresh listings do not have the history and will either pull in clicks and sales, or the prevailing listings will keep the market share. This would be my guess as to why they would do this, unless they needed to erase bad product feedback, etc.

It's to refresh the search bot. New listings tend to have better search results.

Another reason is when people don't want to get caught or if they have a competitor messing with their listings

Since you went there, I'll chime in!

1st, you're clearly speaking about Apple. I think we can all agree that iphones are a great example of high quality items coming from china. They'll make it however good you want, but you'll pay for it!

Secondly, 1 worker jumped from their window and committed suicide. Apple paid his family nicely for their loss. After other employees got wind of this, some of them also started doing this. And now you now why the nets are REALLY there.

Be careful where you get your news from.
