What is Cross-Listing and Why Should I Do It?
The internet is not in short supply of reselling platforms such as, Poshmark and Ebay. Sure, you’re making a killing on Ebay and or Poshmark, why stop there, CROSS LIST! Cross listing is taking your available listings and relisting them onto another platform. There are many benefits of cross listing, of course with the pro’s come the cons. Lets discuss, shall we?
Congrats, you have enough sanity to take on another reselling platform! Don’t put all of your eggs in one basket, cross list! Cross listing is a great way to effectively boost your sales, profits and exposure. Not only are you exposing your products to an entire new platform, you are also creating your very own competition.
-Double the Exposure
In order to make sales, your items need to be seen. Cross listing your items on to another platform will showcase your items to millions of people. If you’re feeling adventurous you could even sell worldwide on Ebay. I highly suggest NOT listing your items for worldwide shipping. I have done this, I have been burned, I have lost money and my damn mind. It’s a pain in the honeybuns. No, that’s not a type-o, I really said honeybuns.
More listing more money, it’s that simple. Not everyone is on Poshmark, and not everyone is on Ebay. I have sold items that were not selling on Poshmark, on ebay as soon as I listed them.
-Create your own competitive pricing.
Creating your own competitive pricing is my secret weapon. If you are a bit crazy like myself, before you purchase something online, you do a quick google search to see if you can find it somewhere else cheaper. Your Poshmark and ebay listings show up within Google search, even when you go to Google Shop. Sometimes I will list my Poshmark items just a bit higher than my Ebay items and vice versa. Creating those price differences has proven to bring buyer to both of my online shops, raising the odds of bundled orders.
-Ability to sell more than just clothing
We all have stuff besides clothing that we want to sell however, Poshmark does not allow you to list certain items. Below is a statement directly from Poshmark, stating what items are not compliant to list within their platform.
“We do not condone the buying or selling of electronics, cell phones, books, dvds, home goods, used makeup, used underwear, any health and wellness products (examples include lotions, body wash, diet supplements, protein powder, body wraps, breast pumps, curling irons and hair straighteners), non-fashion kids/baby items (examples include but are not limited to toys, bedding, strollers, bottles, formula, diapers and miscellaneous gear) and current airline and airport uniforms and related items (which include pilot, flight attendant, TSA, baggage attendant gate agents and all other flight and ground crew uniforms). Any listings in these categories will be deleted. Members who repeatedly attempt to sell such items risk permanent suspension from Poshmark.”
Just because you can’t list it on Poshmark, does not mean you can’t sell it somewhere else! It takes 2 minutes to make an ebay.com account. Do yourself a favor and make an ebay account. You will be able to sell and list so much more, resulting in an increase of profits!
With the good comes the bad however, from experience this is the only downfall. Selling on multiple platforms may become time consuming. It is very important to answer potential customers in a timely fashion. You will be receiving questions and offers from all over the place, that’s a good thing! Just take a deep breathe, maybe a shot of Fireball and GET IT DONE!
