Hi @function

It’s a great question, and one that as a consultant I am used to getting quite often. So lets look at a few things here.

I recently joined Ebay and listed a dress on a Buy It Now option, and on average I am getting 10 views per a day for my listing

How recently is it that you joined eBay? You usually have a three month ‘probation’ period with eBay where your account has some limitations on it, and because of your low feedback rating this will also affect where you show up in the search rankings. This is all normal for new eBay accounts.

shall I expect 10 views on average per a day is good enough to convert to sale. I see other members are getting 100 views a day, how can I achieve this?

This is really quite a hard one to quantify as it largely depends on what the product is, what category you’re selling in. As you mention above good title, descriptions obviously help. A good image is also incredibly important now on eBay. All I can really say on this one is more eyeballs = bigger chance of selling.

Without seeing the listing it is hard to comment properly, however one piece of advice would be to make sure your item specifics are filled in as much as possible. You can look on the eBay sell your item form to get a good idea of which ones will be applicable, or look at the sellers that show up high for your ideal search term and check their listings to see what item specifics they are using.

Please let us know how you get on, if any of that helps, or if you have any further questions

Congratulations @function

You really can’t beat that feeling! Hopefully now with a sale on the listing, you will see it start to gain more traction and the second of many is just around the corner.
