What Exactly is Cross Listing?
Cross listing is simply posting your product onto more than one online marketplace. This used to (and still is) done by loads of resellers and businesses ONE by ONE, which can take a painstakingly long amount of time.
If time is something you usually lack, then we’re here to help. Time is everything when running a business, of any size. When you decide to cross list, you’re no doubt going to take up a lot of it.
By using a cross listing service, you’ll instead save a ton of those minutes that were previously wasted copying and pasting your products from one platform to another.
Not only will you have to be a copy/paste pro, but you’ll have to get super familiar with each and every platform you choose to list on. This can throw you for a serious learning curve and can slow down your efficiency tremendously.
Why Should You Cross List Your Products Online?
Cross listing your products online is almost just as good as listing them on the web to begin with. Listing is the first step into growing your business to new levels and a wider audience, but cross listing is the next best thing to take part in.
When you decide to cross list onto different platforms, you’ll find that you open your exposure up to a whole new plethora of new demographics, and may find that working with one platform might just work better for you than another.
You’ll rapidly increase your brand awareness, since your logo and name will be plastered all over your multiple marketplaces and social media from your new customers.
**Pro Tip: If you’re not on social media, but still wish to be in another way, simply offer a freebie or a credit to your buyers, if they post something about your business on their own social media. Win, win!
Cross listing opens doors that were not previously attainable, by offering your items up to a whole new crowd. Don’t limit yourself with just one platform, find a company to work with you on growing your brand to a level you are looking to achieve.
Which Marketplaces Should You Cross List Your Products to?
There are so many marketplaces out there, which makes it pretty hard to choose which one may be the absolute best one for you.
Luckily, we’ve developed a service that makes it easier than ever before to start cross listing your products onto every marketplace that you’d like.
Cross listing used to be much more complicated than just listing onto just one place online. Listing is simple in that you learn one platform, and repeat.
When it comes to cross listing though, you need to learn every single platform in and out, while deciding which ones to toss and which to keep.
This can become extremely tiresome and overwhelming, especially if you start selling significantly more on one than another, and items start to “double sell.”
What Happens if a Cross Listed Item Sells on 2 Different Marketplaces?
**What is “double selling?” Double selling simply refers to when one singular listing sells multiple times, or on multiple platforms. (Which can become quite common when you become a multi-platform seller).
It’s pretty great that you’ve come to the right place, because we’ve figured out a solution for that problem as well.
Let’s talk about DE-listing.
De-listing is exactly what it sounds like. It is the act of removing the sold item from the remaining platforms that it’s listed on, so that “double selling” doesn’t occur.
We can easily do that for you with our listing software, which will detect when this happens and remove the item for you automatically. (Yes, without you having to think about it! Because we totally get that you have enough to juggle as a business owner, already).
How Does Each Marketplace Differ From One Another?
Each marketplace is unique and helpful in their own ways. One may be better for your jean jackets, while another might be perfect for your newly handmade goods.
Depop typically appeals to the younger generations, and offers streetwear and vintage, while Etsy is best for handmade and repurposed items. You get the point.
Whatever you choose to sell, the options are endless when it comes to deciding what platform to post your items on.
If you’re not sure which items may go best where, simply ask us and we will do our best to give you the necessary insight based on what items you currently carry and our previous experience.
Here’s a quick list of the many different platforms that are available to list your products online:
- Facebook (FB) Marketplace
- LetGo (Now solely OfferUp)
As you can tell, there is quite the motherload to choose from. We’ve got you covered and can cross list to nearly every one of these for you. Just talk to your VA (virtual assistant) to get started moving forward on your request.
