I want to know how often a shop should relist items...And what is the benefit of re listing

4 Responses

Do you mean renew an item that hasn't sold, or relisting something that sold that you have in multiples?

If you mean renewing, it does help with traffic, at least for me. Working on relevancy helps more, but I still renew from time to time when things get slow.

I don't know what to tell you about how often. I feel it depends on what you sell.

Edited to add: I only renew every couple of weeks, if I haven't been able to list new items for while. And I tend to renew a bunch of things at once, like 5-10.

I'm guessing that for sellers in a very saturated market like jewelry, it might help to renew more often but that's just a guess.
You have beautiful things, by the way!
I believe you do better by listing new items. However, on occasion, if I am in a non-listing mood, I will renew items just to keep my shop "up there" somewhere. Most of the time, I just renew when item is about to expire.

You have to find what works for you and go with it. The benefits of relisting is merely to keep your items in public view. Some will say that with the change to relevance over recency, that relisting/renewing doesn't have much effect on views. I think, to an extent, it does help with being seen.

But, listing more new items in your shop helps more than anything, at least for me.
I agree with Dusty about adding new things. That helps more than renewing for me, too.
