Terapeak is a useful insights tool in a variety of cases, including...

Listing optimisation

It's easy to research the top performing listings and get hints on how to better optimise your own listings, by looking at listing details such as photos, price, item specifics and retail standards. You can also identify data-driven keywords that could attract customers to your listings.

Retail standard optimisation

You can use Terapeak to improve your retail standards and help you match the competition. You can immediately see high level metrics, such as the percentage of listings with free shipping and average postage costs. By analysing the top performing listings in more detail you can also see how top performing listings do in terms of returns and shipping options.

Market research

You can use Terapeak to analyse trends in prices, sales volumes and product availability over time. By analysing this data, you can plan your inventory and pricing structure, better understand changes in supply and demand, and identify the sales volumes you can expect. The tool also allows you to filter by item condition or sales format.

Sourcing single stock items

You can even use the above approach for used and low stock items by taking advantage of the relevant filters. This allows you to check trends, average prices, shipping costs and more.

Reactivate underperforming listings

For your underperforming listings, you can research Terapeak to identify competitive listings and identify best practices for photos, price, item specifics and more. Some minor changes made to your own listings could make a huge difference in attracting buyers.
