How does it work?

The whole working mechanism of Terapeak revolves around the TWO fundamental tools. 

Guess the names? Yes, you are RIGHT. Let me have a BRIEF discussion on both tools from Terapeak. 

Product research is all about the DIP in the market. Dig the trending product CATEGORIES. Analyze the top-performing listings. And then grabbing the DATA. 

For example: 

  • Average sale price
  • Number of listings for a particular item
  • Number of sales for a specific item
  • Condition of the selling item
  • Sell-through rates
  • Sales trend over one year
  • Unsold inventory
  • Listing formats of specific items

These get you data of a PARTICULAR eBay category. 

Terapeak SOURCING INSIGHTS is all about eBay listings. It evaluates the HIGH DEMAND and LOW DEMAND product categories. Shows data for: 

  • Search volume
  • Active listings
  • Search-to-listing ratio
  • Click-through rate over one year
  • Total number of listings
  • Total number of sales

Pros of Terapeak

Pros of Terapeak

Terapeak has various benefits for eBay users. Excited to KNOW? Wait a minute.

Helps choose the right products

First of all, I check VARIOUS factors when deciding on the products! 

  • Number of items sold in 365 days. 
  • Profits per item
  • Sell through rate
  • Highest sale price and average PRICES. 

Here TERAPEAK provides me with all of the information in the ONE YEAR period. 

Case closed! I understand the DATA! Make informed DECISIONS. It helps SHINE MY SELLING store. And excel with CUSTOMER loyalty.

Ensures better profits

Profitable ONLINE STORE? Every single seller DREAMS it. But do they all get it? 

Not all get it due to WRONG items sold for ATTRACTING buyers. TERAPEAK helps me drive ACCURATE items’ average sales prices. 

I get the IDEA of the profit. Improve my profit margins with profitable deals. And the results are IN FRONT OF YOU — a SEVEN-figure store on eBay! 

Increase sales levels

One of the BIGGEST reasons I adore Terapak is HEIGHTENED sales. It helped me BOOST my sales with 365 days of data. 

I was able to find the TOP SELLING inventory. Launched it in my store. And BOOM! 

In the first week, I sold all my stock, all thanks to TERAPEAK research help! 

Adjust Shipping Costs

Limitations of Terapeak

Limitations of Terapeak

Like many other tools, I have EXPERIENCED some problems with it. You can call it the limitations. I have followed the FOLLOWING limitations on terapeak. 

  • No Data beyond one year. Terapeak sourcing insights and market research OFFERS data for 365 days. No sales and pricing data BEYOND this time. 
  • High sell-through rates. Some sellers offer QUITE low rates. And DOUBLE up their sales. TERAPEAK shows the number of sales, not the profits. So, it can INTERFERE in the proper product selection in the eBay marketplace. You might be stuck at the LOW-PROFIT inventory as well. 

I have some TIPS for you. (Just a bonus from my side)

  • Always do your research and COMBINE results. 
  • Have a picky EYE to detect the avg. Sold price RANGE. 
  • Understand the SELL through rate and check the products manually. Monitor whether they are OFFERING some discounts. If yes, that might not be the RIGHT product. Leave it!

How to Use TeraPeak

The Crux of MATTER is here, where HUNDREDS of eBay sellers fail. No IDEA what to get. How to get it. Is that the case with you? 

If so, say GOODBYE to your WORRIES. I have MANUALLY used it and explained the WHOLE process in multiple steps. 

Step 1: See the Magic of Terapeak product research tool

See the Magic of Terapeak product research tool

As far as I have USED, it is a COOL product research tool. Easy PEASY. Quick RESEARCH. And top products POP up on the search RESULTS. 

Do you know the PRODUCT? Any of its identifiers? For example, I have FOLLOWING identifiers. 

  • eBay Product ID (EPID)
  • European Article Number (EAN)
  • Manufacturer Part Number (MPN)
  • Universal Product Code (UPC)
  • International Standard Book Numbers (ISBN)

If yes, great! TERAPEAK product research will get you directly to the product! 

If not, I still have ONE OPTION for you. And it is the MANUAL typing. 

Let me explain the eBay research through the TERAPEAK research tool. 

  • Add the product title. For example, you want to find the Samsung S24! Write it in the search box! 
  • Better use LONG-TAIL KEYWORDS. These are keywords that have three or more words. For example, you want Samsung’s latest device. Type: Samsung S24 Ultra, not just the Samsung or Samsung S24. Terapeak PRODUCT RESEARCH feature will show you the Samsung S24 + Samsung S24 ultra. All active LISTINGS will be visible. 
  • Multiple Keywords. You can add multiple keywords at the same time. For example, Samsung Google Pixel 7 Pro has two VERSIONS: 8/128GB and 8/256GB. Based on your REQUIREMENTS, you can type: Google Pixel 7 Pro 8/128GB. It will show all the GOOGLE PIXEL 7 pro with 8/128 GB features. 
  • Guess what, here is another EXCITING feature. Exclude the PARTICULAR eBay listings. For that, you can add “AND NOT, or “–” both work out. If you want to exclude the specific COLOR of the pixel phone, add it. For example: Google Pixel 7 Pro – Sky Blue. It will exclude all the results having the Sky Blue color of Google Pixel. 

Step 2: Apply Search Filters to narrow down your market research

Apply Search Filters to narrow down your market research

I want to give you some GOOD NEWS. Terapeak has INTRODUCED various filters to narrow down your research. For example: 

  • Data Period. Sometimes, I need the data just for PAST 7 DAYS. This is the MAGIC filter for me. It helps me customize the NUMBER of days for the given data.
  • Inventory Type. Do you want to sell the USED inventory? Great! This condition filter is for you. Choose the FIXED pricing, auction-based costs, or USED inventory based on what you need. 
  • Shipping Fees. Exploring the different types of COSTS is no big deal for me. Use TERAPEAK. Get the shipping fees, product fees, and VARIOUS other filters for pricing. 

Step 3: Data Analysis

Data Analysis

There are two MAIN things to understand here for you. 

In the SOLD data, I get all the items sold in a SPECIFIC timeframe. From my own experience, I grab the data from Dec 1 to 8 of 2023.

You need to UNDERSTAND eight points here. 

  • Average selling price excluding the shipping costs. 
  • Selling price range including highest and lowest costs. 
  • Average shipping price 
  • Free shipping on the products. 
  • Total number of sales. 
  • Sell-through rate.
  • Total number of sellers for the product. 
  • Total sales in a specific period. 

In active data, it shows the CURRENT and active listings. 

It comprises: 

  • Average listing price
  • Listing price range
  • Average shipping
  • Free shipping
  • Promoted listings. It involves the paid ads for the product promotion. 

A graph POPS up on the screen. I check it to determine the TREND of the sales for the specific item and period. 

Step 4: Do Optional Category Research

Do Optional Category Research

Do you have a subscription to the TERAPEAK sourcing insights? If yes, I have something more to EXPLAIN here. It is OPTIONAL category research. 

There are two options here. 

  • Manual research. You need to type the CATEGORY name and ID manually. 
Manual research
  • Choose from the given CATEGORIES. You get the SAVED categories, which allow you to select from. 
Choose from the given CATEGORIES

Once you have SELECTED the categories, I would like to explain FOUR factors here. 

  • Search volume of the SPECIFIC category in the given period. 
  • Active listings. Current number of LISTINGS active in the category. 
  • Search to listing ratio. Divide the volume by listings in the specific category. 
  • Sell-through rate. Total sales divided by total inventory 

In each category, you get TWO filters: 

  • All formats. Fixed price or auction? Choose the filter based on what you want to sell. 
  • All conditions. New or used? This filter helps in getting the favorite data for specific product categories. 

There are THREE GRAPHS shown: 

  • Click-through rate. It shows the number of clicks divided by the number of times the product is displayed. 
  • Total listings. These tell the total number of listings in a specific time. 
  • Total items sold. Over a specific period, you get this graph. 
Click-through rate

There are three tabs to understand. 

  • Top Opportunities. These products have a lower return rate and more clicks. 
  • Explore item specifics. It shows data for specific product variant sales. For instance, the colors of Google Pixel. 
  • Top listings. It determines the best-selling listings. 
Explore item specifics

You can save the CATEGORIES For future uses as well.
