eBay has a great reputation out there, among online shopper. That in itself is a major advantage for your business, provided the business can fit into the particular model followed by eBay. In addition, there’s a huge user base that eBay enjoys that will stand your business in good stead.
Getting an eBay store not only provides the benefits of the platform, it also brings a huge amount of exposure for your business. Once your business gets off to a flying start on eBay, you can take it forward from there. Of course, you are the best judge of what works for your business, but it may help acquire the initial footfalls and sales.

In addition, the Store Referral Credit gives you a 75% credit on the Final Value Fees once you have made sales from your listings. An eBay store can also be designed to reflect the colors and design you have in mind for your eBay store.
With an eBay Store, you can have a majority of your products listed at your own store and use only a few in the general listing to drive traffic toward your eBay store. You can use auctions for this purpose. Just mention in your individual listings that you have these other interesting products at your own store and promote that larger selection of products.
