Triple the platforms- triple the sales? Selling on multiple reseller platforms (Like Mercari, Depop, Ebay, Etsy, and more) can be a huge leap in sales for your business. However, you’ll get the most out of it if you learn how to strategize your approach. Here are four tips and tricks I’ve learned while selling on multiple reselling platforms like ListPerfeclty!

Organize your Inventory Organizing your inventory is key when you are selling on multiple platforms. Keeping your inventory system clean, organized, and up to date will help you avoid losing items or double selling things!
Start One Platform at a Time Every platform is different, but every platform requires some time to build the profile, create a pool of buyers, and establish a presence on the platform. I recommend starting on one platform, creating a presence, and then starting another to maximize sales.
Create a “Deletion” Strategy What happens when something sells on one platform? It’s important to create a routine or systems so you DO NOT FORGET to delete that item from any other platforms. Double selling an item can really hurt you- ebay has a 4% cancellation rate before you end up a below standard seller!
Know your Niche & Consistency is Key! The items you sell will be your “niche” as a seller. Find out what items sell well for you, and try to sell to that audience. Remember, consistency is key! It’s important to note that consistency is key- your niche won’t be able to buy your items if you don’t keep posting!
There is so much to learn when cross-listing, but the good thing is that you don’t need to learn it all at once! I think the best way to learn is by doing, so go ahead and give it a shot!
