Your email needs an edge. Here are six best practices to help.Get the Email Guide
Why we love eBay
eBay allows users to keep an eye on various deals, items, and even sellers through the My eBay homepage. In addition to a traditional watchlist, users can save their searches to revisit products frequently, track real-time price changes, or to repurchase items. Shoppers can also save specific items that they’re interested in bidding on or purchasing to better keep track of specific price fluctuations that can impact their wallet. If customers are loyal fans of a specific seller, eBay allows buyers to set them as a favorite to receive updates about new products and active auctions.
Curated email messaging
Email communications feature personalized product recommendations and deals specific to every customer’s interests. eBay’s AI tracks customer searches on the platform, purchases made, and frequently browsed items to recommend similar and related products that complement each shopper’s individual interests. Subject lines are personalized to the user both by name and username, and emails often offer personalized discount codes to users who have not recently engaged to drive repurchase.
Intuitive app design
eBay offers over a billion items on its platform, so how do shoppers not get so lost that they never make it to checkout? eBay has cracked the code of digital design for user experience so shoppers feel comfortable browsing and buying from their phones. The eBay app displays recently viewed products and highlights the same items that customers would see on the website. And if someone’s looking to sell something, a phone’s camera tool can be used to take a picture of an item or scan a barcode.
