The third in the series of What is in store for marketplace sellers in 2015!
So the question today is:
‘What can sellers expect in 2015?’
My gut feeling is 2015 will be bigger than ever, but the policies tighter for marketplace sellers and the cost of doing business that little bit higher!
I have been a part of the e-commerce landscape for 14 years, and it just keeps growing. I don’t think it will stop. But what I DO think is ‘other people & organisations’ will try to take a bigger slice of sellers money.
The UK/EU government/s will start 2015 as it means to go on, by making sure you can’t sell electronic goods with out paying VAT on every penny by lowering the threshold to well….zero. If this is successful the cynic in me can see it rolled out to all ‘online purchases’ – the EU is broke….it wants our money. It wants it NOW.
eBay will also need more money, so sellers will see fee’s rise in 2015 to cover the losses caused by bad management and infrastructure at eBay.
But lets see if the cards are just as pessimistic about the drain on sellers finances!
Back to the Druid Craft Deck bought on eBay:
The Issue – Four of Cups *Reversed
It seems sellers need to be wary of staying in a relationship that should end in 2015, however there will be new opportunities for sellers to take hold of. The fear of security is there though. With the recent hacking of eBay, a lot of sellers are concerned moving forward.
Action to Avoid – The Lady *Reversed
Sellers need to avoid the blockages that prevent success. This might well pertain to VAT issues, ending that relationship that is holding you back or making that decision to unlock your potential.
Action to Take – Queen of Pentacles *Reversed
Obsessive materialism! This is what we like to hear. LOTS of people buying YOUR items. Get ready for the rush!
In 2015 sellers need to shed their dead weight. Anything that is costing you too much, not making you money/saving time you need to ditch. There is massive opportunity ahead in 2015, the year of obsessive materialism commences. We have already seen the signs in the sales this Christmas.
So what to expect? BIG THINGS & BIG MONEY! You just have to take those opportunities, make sure of your return on investment STOP wasting money. Check who you are working with, consultants, experts, third party providers, financial services…are THEY making you money or solving your problems? Has the relationship broken down but you are too ‘busy’ to end it? STOP BEING A NINNY.
