Creating an eBay store is a jigsaw puzzle. You need all of these pieces:
We are commonly considered an alternative to the market research tool, Terapeak, but the reality is that we complement one another, rather than compete. We both bring unique features to the table that can be used to achieve your ultimate goal of finding and selling popular products at a rapid pace.
So, how do SaleHoo and Terapeak differ then, and how can they help you find and source high-profit, low-competition items for your eBay store?
Let’s take a look at the differences between SaleHoo and Terapeak and how each of the different features we offer help you pick the best items for your eBay store:
You Need: To Identify which Products are High-Profit, Low-Competition (Terapeak)
Terapeak is a suite of tools that let you research and identify high-profit, low-competition items to sell on eBay. It does this by analyzing the past 365 days of previous eBay sales data/listings. Using the Terapeak Product Research tool, you can quickly figure out if a product will make you a lot of money (or if it’s a dud!):
- Simply type in a product into the Product Research tool, and within seconds it will analyze up to 365 days worth of previous sales/listings to tell you if it’s a high-profit, low-competition item to sell.
- Discover the average sell-through rate (use this to identify items that sell fast).
- Discover how many bids on average each listing gets (the higher the ratio, the lower the seller competition!).
- Discover what the average selling price is for the item (both new and second hand).
- Plus lots of other great stats to help you identify the best products to sell in your eBay store.
