E-Sellers cautious as eBay rolls out Managed Payments

In September, eBay launched its brand-new Managed Payments program, currently available to a closed group of some 20,000 sellers. With over $1 billion in processed payments and the first seller feedback coming in, it’s time to take a closer look at this project.

What’s This About

With the introduction of Managed Payments program, Adyen, the global payment processing company used by Uber, becomes eBay’s prime partner in transaction processing. This means that the sellers joining the program will no longer be able to offer PayPal as a payment option – for now, at least, as it’s yet to be integrated. Their returns will be delivered to their bank accounts with a delay of 2-4 business days, as eBay says. In summer 2020, the program will be launched in full, potentially becoming mandatory for all or most sellers.

What’s The Buzz

The feedback coming in so far is at best mixed, with eBay forums replete with panicked posts from e-sellers blasting at the Managed Payment fees (2.7% + $0.25 per item vs. PayPal’s flat $2.9% + $0.30). Other major complaints include a lack of access to the eBay’s Global Shipping Program and delays in payment transfers to sellers’ bank accounts.

Should You Opt In?

Well, here’s a few things to consider:

  • Lower fees: A 0.2% reduction in transaction fees vis-à-vis PayPal could end up saving money. Even with the extra per-listing charges. With that, even if you’re on the 6-digits sales volume, the 0.2% doesn’t change things dramatically.
  • No PayPal: If a major share of your […]

Walmart for jewelry eCommerce

Recent research by MarketplacePulse made us focus on Walmart role in jewelry eCommerce ecosystem.

We summarized our thoughts on this:

  • According to the research, jewelry makes about 6.5% of Walmart products catalog. There are above 2.5M products in Jewelry department. This means that the category is quite significant on the marketplace. Not all marketplaces have enough volume in the jewelry category, allowing them to focus on the industry needs.
  • Walmart is actively growing, while encouraging external sellers to join. Only 2% of jewelry is sold by Walmart itself (one of the lowest rates in the marketplace). This is an opposite to Amazon, which has a very self-oriented strategy. It was shown not once, that Amazon’s brands have lower success than ones of 3rd-party sellers, and in the long-term point of view the strategy of ecological co-existence between the marketplace owned products and 3-rd party sellers is more effective.
  • Accepting only US companies as marketplace sellers, Walmart creates very strong protection for US sellers and is not too crowded (only 20K sellers). This is very much different from eBay and Amazon, crowded with more low-cost international sellers. From our clients’ experience we know that the marketplace performs well also in expensive products in the $3000-$4000 price range.
  • Buyers consider Walmart to be a provider of high quality products. This positioning allows selling high-quality jewelry, and has a positive role for the brand. In today’s cross-channel marketing world, this is an important factor in selecting the marketplace to sell jewelry.
  • While having relatively small catalog comparing to Amazon, Walmart offers  over half […]
