What is ShelfTrend?

ShelfTrend offers easy to use and insightful data analytics reports about eBay’s massive inventory and sales.

With over 1.1 billion product listings in over 20 countries in tens of thousands of categories, merchandised to more than 171 million consumers per quarter who make 300 million product searches a day, eBay data is an excellent proxy to the wider global ecommerce market.

No matter if you sell on eBay or not, we have data on your product or a similar product, products you could be selling and what your competitor is selling.

The Inspiration

An eBay seller had a problem. Without warning, their steady sales had started declining week after week, even though they hadn’t changed any listing details. The seller suspected it might be due to a change to eBay’s Best Match search algorithm.

Upon closer analysis, a new competitor had in fact snuck up quietly, and aggressively listed similar inventory at lower prices. As the merchant didn’t have an easy way to spot these marketplace changes, they missed critical activity within their category which resulted in massive business disruption.

Enter ShelfTrend – data reports that gives professional eBay sellers the insight they need to adapt and thrive. With ShelfTrend, sellers can now monitor marketplace activity to protect against future threats while identifying sale trends and product opportunities.
