Default Items are hardly getting any views

Hello.


I bought a stealth account and I have listed up an item and Iím hardly getting any views on items does anyone know what the issue maybe?


I also have the private anonymous option turned on and I contacted them to find out if itís that and they told me no. And my item is live when I search for it so it canít be indexing.

Maybe many other people are selling the same item and yours is way down the results? Have you checked that?

Maybe no-one wants to buy your item?

Could be down to so many factors. From the sounds of it, you've found it, so it is live.

If things don't pickup, delist the item, and sell a different an item in another category to see if the issue repeats itself.

It’s always like that when you list first your listing will be on the 1st or 2nd page and then eBay index your listing lowers in ranking bear in mind you have to pay to play have you tried sponsored adds that always works for me.

Listings can take 24 to 48hrs to show up. That's the general rule of thumb with all categories. Always has been, especially for new accounts.

2nd page is bad as it is, to expect eBay to push you into 3rd and 4th pages and saying its normal is far from the truth.

All of my listings are on the first page, and always have been. I've never had to use sponsored ads to push my listings there. How to get there, and stay there, you'll need to do a lot of research.

Goal is to be on the first page, or 2nd page at most. If you're anywhere else, something isn't right.

With new accounts it can take 24 to 48h to show up, even if its a BIN listing. But that's besides the point, we've already established listing is live.

When I listed up my first item It was on the 2nd page then eBay moved it to 3rd then 4rd pages so is it not going good?

I've commented on a similar question on another thread a few months back.

Perhaps some of the tips on that thread could be of help.
Good luck.

A tonne of reasons, such as click to sale ratio, account standing etc.

If eBay gets any hint of you trying to dropship, you drop ranks.

If eBay sees people are clicking your listing, but not purchasing, you drop ranks.

there's just too many reasons to list. Read around the forums, do a few google searches and that should point you in the right direction.

I never done dropships on eBay and never will get into it.

I remember when i was selling on eBay and got a lot of views and customers and my items were listed on the 2nd page donít know how I done it though.
