What is the time frame for sales data found in the Top 500 Live Listings Report?

Sales data presented in the Top 500 Live Listings report is the total life time sales for the listings.  The age of the listing can be calculated by its start time, available within the downloadable csv.

 To get a 30-day view of sales for the top 100 listings, run the Recent Sales Report with the same report criteria.

Why do I get the error message "Something went wrong...” when I run the Recent Sales Report?

New Report_Error_Recent Sales.JPG

eBay applies a limit to the amount of data you are able to pull at a time. 

 To ensure you get relevant results, it is best to stay away from general keywords and large categories, like “iPhone cover” or “Shoes.” Instead choose relevant sub-categories and/or use more precise keywords.

For example, “Dress” is a high sales volume product. Running a report for that search term will always result in the error, “Something went wrong, please try again.” 

Instead, narrow your query to the Women’s Fashion and include keywords that Buyers would use, for example:

  • Black silk mini dress

  • Wedding dress

Why don’t sales on ShelfTrend match my eBay dashboard?

ShelfTrend’s reports show sales for listings that are highly ranked and currently live on the site. ShelfTrend does not present sales for ended listings.

There are two reports that present sales data:

The Live Listings Report shows the life time sales of a listing for up to the top 500 Best Match ranked listings.

The Recent Sales Report shows sales from the last 30-days for the top ranked 100 listings.

Listings that fall below rank may not make it into your report. Modify your report criteria by keyword or category to capture those missing listings via a different angle.

For example, if your report criteria is: Top 500 Live Listings Report for “iPhone covers” but your high end leather iPhone case falls outside of rank, then in your next report, use more specific keywords such as “Leather ïPhone case” or other descriptors.

Another option is that you can run ShelfTrend reports by Item ID. Select the report and the country, then enter the Item ID into the Keyword field.
