Why People Are Switching from eBay to Sellr

If you want to sell things online, the first place you probably think of selling is on eBay. eBay is, perhaps, the most well-known of eCommerce websites and is used by millions of people. It's a simple service which can be used for free where you just sign up, make listings for your items and then either sell them for a set price or hold an auction. It's a well-known business, but in this blog post I am going to take you over the reasons that people switch from eBay to Sellr.


The thing is, when I say 'switch from eBay to Sellr' I mean that people switch eBay from being their primary eCommerce outlet to it being their secondary eCommerce outlet (with Sellr becoming the primary) because, with Sellr, you are able to list your items in your Sellr store will simultaneously listing them on eBay. This is quite helpful for a number of reasons. Firstly, if you've been selling successfully on eBay for a while, you know for a fact that there are people who will buy your product and making your own website would be a good 'next step'. Having your own eCommerce website makes you seem much more professional and you'll be able to link back to your website from your eBay account, bringing your existing customers over.


Having your own eCommerce website will cement you as your own independent business and, in fact, is likely to drive sales/bids when it encourages people that you are reliable. eBay is known for having a lot of untrustworthy users, mainly because anybody can use it, but if somebody is looking at what you have for sale and sees that your account is linked to your own professional website, it should remove any shadow of a doubt from their mind that you are somebody who can be trusted.


So you can see why, after getting started on eBay, people then switch to Sellr to make a real name for themselves in the eCommerce world. If you've been doing well by selling on eBay for a while, why don't you think about starting up your own Sellr store? It is completely free and you'd have nothing to lose by experimenting!
