Meeting eBay's policy on duplicates is becoming more and more important, and if you don't deal with any issues repercussions can be damaging.
But where do you start? How can you identify any duplicates you have, what the issues are, and which listings you should keep?
eBay has teamed up with Optiseller to provide you with the tools to ensure that you eliminate any duplicate listings and get your business back on track.
With our Duplicate Listings Tool you can review your listings based on values such as EAN, brand, SKU etc. and then download a list of your duplicates you need to act on. You’ll be able to quickly identify which ones to keep, and which to remove.
We have two types of Duplicates report
Duplicate Listings - We will create a report highlighting the potential duplicates for your selected store. Duplicates will be found using configurable options such as EAN, brand, SKU etc.
Duplicate Compatibility Report - This is specifically aimed at P&A sellers. We will create a report highlighting the potential duplicates for your selected store. Duplicates will be found using pre-set options – EAN, brand, MPN and number of compatible vehicles. Any listings which have a matching EAN, brand, MPN and at least one compatible vehicle will be deemed a duplicate
We also recommend the optimal configuration for duplicates reporting - http://help.optiseller.com/ebay-duplicate-listings-tool/configuring-the-duplicates-report
The report is available as an online summary highlighting the listings with best sales history, and the data can also be exported to Excel.
