"eBay Local" Pure Gravy for Business

Posted Saturday, November 17, 2007, at 7:53 AM

That is the title of an article in eBay's current newsletter. What they are announcing is a new program in early 2008 that will allow you to list local pick up for your items in addition to being able to list it for shipping.

eBay has always allowed 'bricks and mortar' stores the ability to advertise their local business, but now it will be even easier. They are also going to release "mapped search results" that will give your customers detailed directions to your store.

If there was ever a time to incorporate eBay into your store's marketing plans, now seems like a great one!

I see some ebay sellers with fancy little borders. I assume that this is an "Insert". If it is, how do I go about making one.

There are several ways to do that. People who know html programming(hyper text markup language) can make these themselves, but for folks like you and me we either use the templates that eBay offers (10 cents) or we buy software to do it.

You can find the eBay templates in "Listing Designer" when you are building a listing. If you are using Turbo Lister it can be found under "Listing Upgrades".
