eBay has invited sellers to ask questions about its search tools during its next monthly chat session scheduled for next week. Lucan McRandall, Product Manager for eBay’s Seller Experience – Growth & Insights team, will be on hand to chat with sellers and answer their questions.

The topic of the chat is “How to use Sourcing Insights and Product Research”.

McRandall had been Product Manager at Terapeak for 2 years (2013-2015) before eBay acquisition from Terapeak’s analytics platform for an undisclosed amount in 2017. (Terapeak had also provided tools to sellers on other platforms, including Amazon, Alibaba.com, and Yahoo Japan).

McRandall was then responsible for integrating the Terapeak platform into Seller Hub when he joined eBay in 2018.

eBay describes its research tools for sellers on its website, including Terapeak Product Research (“helps you figure out what to sell, when to sell it, and at what price”) and Terapeak Sourcing Insights (“you can see top-performing categories, identify what’s selling well in these categories, and make informed decisions about what to sell next”).

In July 2021, eBay created the following video to explain how sellers can use Terapeak Sourcing Insights to “identify future opportunities and order the right inventory”.

It looks like sellers with questions should wait until the August 10 session begins at 4 p.m. EST, but readers can feel free to ask questions or discuss their favorite market research tools. in the comments below.
