Cross-promoting your items

Cross-promoting – showing buyers the right items at the right time – is a powerful tool to give buyers more options with their shopping experience. Showing other items can help you sell more items per buyer, and sell to more buyers. Your items appear with thousands of other listings and in emails to drive traffic to your items and your Store.

How buyers see your cross-promotions

Buyers can see your other listings in several ways:

  • While they’re viewing one of your items.

  • When a buyer places a bid or chooses Buy It Now for one of your items, they'll see up to 12 of your other items.

  • In emails to buyers who are watching your item, or who asked to be notified when one of your listings has ended.

  • In My eBay when the buyer has designated you as a Saved Seller or Saved Store.

  • With thousands of similar listings from other sellers.

  • Buyers see the first picture you uploaded to a listing in the cross promotion.

In addition, other sellers’ listings will be displayed on your pages.

Creating cross-promotions

To use cross-promotions:
  1. Go to My eBay.

  2. Move your cursor above the Account tab until you see a pull-down menu.

  3. Select "Marketing Tools."

  4. Click the Cross-Promotion link in the left navigation.

  5. Select the "Yes" check box near the top of the page. Your selection applies to all of your active listings.

Note: If you don't have other items to display, then only items from other sellers will be displayed in this section of your listing. Cross-promotions can appear in listings with any selling format and in any category except Adult Only (the Adult category is not available on / / ).   

Canceling cross-promotions

If you want to cancel your cross promotion:
  1. Go to My eBay.

  2. Move your cursor over  the Account tab until you see the pull-down menu.

  3. Select "Marketing Tools."

  4. Select the "No"check box near the top of the page. Your selection applies to all of your active listings.

Your items will still be shown on pages and emails directly related to your listings, and other sellers' items won't be displayed in your listings.
