  • I am an eBay consultant and have been an eBay Power Seller since 2003. I encourage all businesses to at least give eBay a try -there is a segment of the consumer market that starts their search for a product on eBay - before looking anywhere else. Businesses offering consumer goods and services can capture the eBay segment of the market if not just for sales, but for post-transactional marketing. Once you have made the sale on eBay, you will have the customer's contact info. Many businesses use eBay as their "clearance center" just for this reason.

    You can use marketing techniques like including a flyer or biz card in the customer's order and invite them to visit your website directly. You will also have their email address and you can invite them to sign up for your website's sales, specials, or newsletters.

    All eBay users are permitted to place a link to their own website on their eBay About Me page. This is the ONLY place on eBay that outside links are permitted.
