Default bonanza

Ive been on bonanza for a month or two now with almost 25k products uploaded and have had 0 sales. variety of stuff. marine, electronics, a/v, computers, mobile, outdoor gear.

i had one offer like aweek ago and then it was cancelled right away.

i upgraded to the gold plan a few weeks ago. im doing the max advertising now but this is still very disappointing.

do you need to do the titan plan to get sales or something? i was talking to my wholesaler and he said he has customers who get like 15 sales a week but not sure what plan they do.

any advice is appreciated.

Bonanza is not going to have as many sales as eBay or Amazon. It is a more personal marketplace and buyers there are looking for deals from people who specialize in something. With 25,000 products, you are not specializing in anything, you are just trying to sell whatever you can. There is nothing wrong with that, but it will turn some of their buyers off.

There are so many potential things that could be causing this, it is hard to pin it down.

Are your competitors writing their own descriptions? Are they also listing 25,000 items or are they specializing in one area? What package on Bonanza are they utilizing to get sales? Bonanza is cheaper than eBay, but to get sales it DOES pay to use some of their services.

You are probably doing something wrong. Bonanza is very popular. It generate millions of visitors per month thru google shopping and other search engines. So its probably how you set up your store (pics, description) that makes most buyers don't buy. But don't give up, trying taking like hd clear professional pics and writing a short good description that your buyers can easily understand. and lets see the result.

Even at 15 sales a week I would not be exited with the results especially with 25K listings.

Too many horrible looking phakes in lots of categories. I mean if you are going to go down that road at-least sell the best quality stuff of the bunch. This stuff would get people kicked of EB or AZ in a quick second.

Bonanza looks like a site made for witches, ladies, grannies and women with 3 cats or more. It's the next etsy. Unless your selling women clothing and sandals new or old, herbs, spells, junk or old antique bonanza may not be for you or your target market.

I posted products on Bonanaza( 50 products) and got 2 sales and 1 offer within a week. AFter that , nothing . Kinda weird , not really sure what to do on there and if its even worth it to do more work and listings to get no traffic. e.tsy traffic blows bonanza out the water .

I agree with above it seems like old people with alot of cats shop there for unique vintage items maybe. But Im sure they prefer EB /et.sy cuz it seems safer. Thats IF old people get on the internet to buy stuff anyway, like would they even know about bonanza .

All depends on what you sell on Bonan. I do great there.

But, if you are competing with all the Chinese morons who have spammed certain categories, you are screwed. Bonan lets people list whatever they want there with NO restrictions on duplicates. And so the Chinese go hammer time.

I get sales on Bonanza for vaping products....

In Christmas Holidays its a great place to get higher prices and worth the Titan. However during summer months its pretty dry...

Keep items up for seasons... Also are you sure all listings include google requirements?

I hate to ask I am very UN-knowledgeable about Bonaza and ESTY as a seller. What do most sellers use for accepting payments? Is it PayPal or something else?
