This article shows how you can check sales reports and marketing data for eBay Promoted Listings, direct from your Webinterpret account.
So, first of all, what are Promoted Listings?
As eBay confirm, ''Promoted Listings helps your items stand out among billions of listings on eBay and be seen by millions of active buyers when they’re browsing and searching for what you are selling, helping to increase the likelihood of a sale. The best part? You only pay when your item sells.''
Promoted Listings cost as much as you’re willing to pay. The ad fee is a percentage of transaction value (excluding shipping) which sellers agree to pay for the advertising.
So, once you decide you would like to utilize the Promoted Listings feature, login to your Webinterpret SUI, click on Marketing, and, if eligible, there will be an invitation to Start Free Trial.
Once you indicate you wish to add the feature, you now need to accept the Terms and Conditions to for each marketplace (you need to accept the Terms and Conditions for the individual marketplaces you wish to use Promoted Listings in). Once all is agreed, we can get your campaigns moving.
