Back to school shopping is over, and Halloween shopping is in full swing on eBay. Despite Halloween buying, some eBay sellers are messaging me, “Kathy my sales are slow. What should I do?”
I answer, “It’s time to sort through your eBay inventory to discover in demand items!”
Many sellers think that Halloween is solely packaged costumes, traditional Halloween decor and Halloween candy. Yes, all those products sell right now. But, October shoppers are shopping for that and MORE!Examine your merchandise carefully. Do you have clothing items that could be used in a costume? Do any of your clothing items lend themselves to being a hippie, tacky tourist, zombie, mummy, princess, fire fighter, Olympic athlete or any number of costume ideas? Once you’re done sorting through your clothing, look at hats, belts, bags, shoes and any accessories you have. Often people go straight from work to a Halloween costume event.
The perfect scarf, or flamboyant piece of jewelry can transform the wearer into a costumed party attendee!
If you have an eBay store, group items perfect for a costume in an eBay Promotion through Promotions Manager.With your items grouped in an eBay Promotion you’ll have a shareable link and url address for social media.For your higher priced items it can be worthwhile to revise them and add Halloween and costume themed keywords for search and shoppers to find your items.

For additional exposure for your listings on eBay, if you’re a Top Rated Seller and/or eBay Store Owner, include your targeted listings in eBay’s paid search option Promoted Listings.
