Why is my price different from ebay?

My price on eBay is more than what transfers over to Bonanza. For instance, I just sold something on Bonanza that was listed on eBay for $11.88. It sold on Bonanza for $11.54.

Does anyone understand this??

Thank you!

When you imported your items from eBay, you may have missed the setting of a price discount that Bonanza can set for imported items. Bonanza does this to differentiate your Bonanza selling price from eBay’s selling price. The idea is that if your Bonanza price is lower, then you increase the likelihood of selling it on Bonanza. This discount can certainly be offset by the lower FVF that Bonanza charges.

This setting can be accessed under Current Import Settings > Edit Settings > Sync with eBay store and it can be changed at the time of import if you don’t want to offer that savings to Bonanza shoppers.

Another possibility… you may be running a markdown sale where you have discounted your items (each item appears to be discounted from 3 to 3.25%). This is done through the Batch Editor.

If you click on the little “i” next to your selling price on the item’s page, you will see the following message -

“Item Price Discount

This item is selling for $xx.xx on eBay.

Leveraging Bonanza’s low selling fees, the seller has chosen to use their savings to Give Bonanza buyers a better dealer."
