Teespring’s Boosted Network has generated hundreds of thousands of sales for our seller community and we’re aiming to break more sales records in the coming months. This year we’re focused on optimizing current listings, increasing the number of quality listings, and exploring new marketplace integrations. Shipping plays an important role in optimizing current listings and today we’re excited to announce we’ve unlocked new conversion boosting features that will lead to even more Boosted Network sales—eBay Guaranteed Delivery and Wish Express!
eBay Guaranteed Delivery
We know 60% of shoppers are more likely to choose a retailer that can accurately predict delivery dates and 72% of online shoppers say on-time delivery is the number-one reason they return to retailers. For this reason, eBay launched Guaranteed Delivery in August 2017. This initiative is still relatively new and therefore offered to an exclusive group of eBay vendors. Due to Teespring’s brand credibility, product quality guarantee, and production abilities we are able to offer Guaranteed Delivery on most Teespring eBay listings. Buyers love this feature because they can filter search results based on the guaranteed delivery date they need. This means more of your listings will be shown to eBay shoppers in search results leading to more sales opportunities!
Similar to eBay Guaranteed Delivery, Wish Express promises to deliver a buyer’s order within a specified time frame. Due to our speedy fulfillment timelines, Teespring is able to offer Wish Express for our global listings. Currently, all rush eligible listings on Wish offer this shipping option. Also, Teespring has earned Wish’s Trusted Store status so all our products (even those that don’t offer Wish Express) receive additional online impressions through extra exposure to millions of shoppers within Wish’s global marketplace.
Boosted Network listing requirements
Guaranteed Delivery is in the process of being activated for all of Teespring’s eligible listings on eBay within the US. Wish Express is currently activated for all of Teespring’s eligible global listings (EU and US fulfillment).
Make sure you’re opted-in to the Boosted Network within your account settings. Apart from that, there are just three things you need to do for your products to be eligible for listing:
- Your design must comply with Boosted Network Design Guidelines.
- You must have a good Seller Trust Score.
- Your listing’s lifecycle needs to be set to always available or continuous relaunch.
The best way to increase your number of Boosted Network listings is by increasing your direct sales—products with at least one sale are automatically prioritized for the Boosted Network. Also, don’t forget we released tech updates in December 2017 to simplify requirements for Boosted Network listings, for example, there is no longer a goal of one requirement. All listings that have been created or relaunched since December 2017 will “tip” when one item is sold regardless of design DPI or previous goal settings.
