The benefits of hiring a virtual assistant for eBay

  • Grow your eBay store faster 

One of the most crucial elements of a growing eBay business is the ability to continue to source new products. 

If you ask most successful eBay sellers they will let you know that their business grew to that level of success because they spent more time sourcing new products than listing items. 

You should not be spending endless hours listing items when the goal is to sell more. 

By hiring a virtual assistant for eBay you are increasing your chances of success as having a VA will allow you time to continue to source new items, giving your eBay business and store the ability to grow. 


  • Stay Consistent with listing and relisting items  

Listing and relisting items consistently on eBay is necessary for the success of your eBay sales, and the search engines will favour your listings as a result. 

eBay does not like it when you stop listing new items and they usually move your listing further towards the bottom of the search results if you don’t continue to list regularly. 

By hiring a virtual assistant for eBay you are increasing your chances of staying consistent with your daily listing and relisting responsibilities.

  • Provide holiday cover 

Your eBay virtual assistant can also provide you with holiday cover. This is another way of you staying consistent with your eBay business. If you have a virtual assistant you don’t have to set your eBay shop status to holiday when you go on holiday or if your not available. This means you can continue to earn extra money from your eBay store while you are on holiday.

All you need to do is to ensure there is still someone available to actually dispatch the items for you. Your virtual assistant can still deal with messages for you and continue to add newly listed items to your eBay store.

Common problems eBay sellers face 

After working with multiple eBay sellers, I can tell you that most of our eBay virtual assistant clients usually face one of these two problems.
