Abbreviations used in eBay auctions
Many of the different abbreviations used in listing an item for sale on eBay are not known to you. Keeping track of all the different barcodes can seem complicated, but their purpose is to simplify the eBay buying and selling process.
The MPN as a unique product identification
There is no standard for how to use them. The format of the MPNs is not fixed, and it is common for different manufacturers to use the same code. The MPN can be used as a unique product identification.
Re-listing or Revisitino the XYZ Z's
Unless you manually relist or revise the listings, they will no longer appear in search results. It's recommended that you use the bulk edit and relist tool to make sure buyers can easily find and purchase your items.
Add a UPC to the Catalog
If there is a UPC, it is helpful to add it to the catalog. It is not typical for a CD to have different items with the same UPC, but it can get someone to find the item before you look for it. People do not search with the words "UPC" or "MPN" when they respond to someone.
It's much easier to use the minus to remove the garbage results from your results. Some sellers are listing the wrong UPC and that causes major problems with the catalog as their item may show up as the lowest cost new and ebay shows it with their catalog title, but then when you investigate its a completely different item and they probably just used'sell similar' to copy parts of Product identifications are needed for buyers to find your items and for outside sources to drive traffic to eBay.
USPS: A Proven, Low-Cost Optical System for the Large Scale Distribution of Light Particles
The reputation of the company is built on trust, reliability and choice. Customers can receive their orders up to two days faster with Saturday delivery. Day-definite delivery from the United Parcel Service is also available.
USPS offers competitive pricing for packages. For parcel packages below 5 lbs., it has the First-Class Package service. Priority Mail is used.
Parts Product Identification using GTIN and MPN
GTINs are used to look up product information in a database which may belong to a retailer, manufacturer, collector researcher. The universality and unique nature of the identifier helps to establish which product in one database corresponds to which product in another database. The parts industry is an important one.
Even though the same manufacturer makes both car models, an oil filter for one car may not fit another. Each type of car has a different oil filter. When uploading products to marketplaces like eBay, they use MPNs.
They allow search engines to match products with queries. Similar to GTINs, MPNs help to identify individual products. Some comparison shopping engines prefer GTINs to MPNs in product data feeds.
If the GTIN is there, the MPNs are sometimes optional. Product names and item details can help your listings appear in the search results. Product identification is used by the internet giant to position products in their own catalog.
Removing a UPC Code from an eBay Listing
If you bought a UPC code for an item that was sold again, you should remove it from your listings. The wrong code is more harmful than the one that does not apply. The sku's unique identification and the original mfg's GS1 company identification will be combined to create a correct UPC code.
The UPC's Dont Matter
The purpose of requiring the UPC number is not to make it easier for buyers to find an item in the search, but to make eBay's recommended price and trend price more accurate. It allows the ratings of that item by buyers to be shown on the seller's listing page, regardless of who purchased the item. A buyer can find all 38 can openers in 5 seconds.
It might take 5 hours to find all of the can openers. The buyer can see all 38 can openers on the same page. The buyer cannot see all of the can openers on the same page.
The problem for Ebay has always been that there is a large amount of used items on the site, for which a UPC number wouldn't be available for. Ebay could never require every listing to have it, because they went with a true Amazon business model. Sometimes a UPC pulls information that is not true.
There are different versions of the same media under the same UPC, and sometimes the catalog information is wrong. The listing should not have the wrong information in it. One reason that the UPC's don't matter is that there are two people selling the same game, one is complete and in excellent condition, the other is not.
The price is not going to be the same because both are the same item. Everything else gets the " Does Not Apply", except for brand new items. You have to remember to select it yourself, and the field cannot be blank.
