Step 1: Define your report criteria

Build any combination of criteria for running a report.

  • Use keywords, seller id and/or Browse by Category. Try different keywords. Start with specific keywords, like “Yellow Crystal iPhone Cover”, check the data results and then add or remove keywords as required.

  • Select from a drop down of more than 20 eBay global marketplaces from Australia through to United States to the United Kingdom.

  • When searching a seller - be sure to select the eBay country they sell in.

  • Condition allows sellers who trade specifically in refurbished or second hand goods to focus their data directly on that type of inventory.


Step 2: Select from 3 reports

1 The Top 500 Live Listings Report

A live market report for the top 500 Best Match listings for any keyword or category. This report is great for insight into how eBay is merchandising products at what price points to buyers right now. Assess seller and brand dominance of search results. Spot trending product features as ranked by Best Match.

 

2 The New Listings Report

A market summary of new or re-listed listings up to the last 7 days. This report offers insight into the new products and brands coming onto the marketplace and early warning of a flood of new inventory that could threaten your price point and sales.
