I don’t list without Terapeak—I want to make sure that I get the most for the items donated to us so I don’t underprice our inventory and lose out on money for our charity.

Kathleen Manning
I love being able to represent eBay activity in a visual way. The color coded categories in the Heat Map allow me to quickly assess which parts of the marketplace are HOT. I don’t list anything without researching it.
Kathleen Manning, Founder
Leah Moore
Demand in our market is very seasonal, and Terapeak helps us observe large scale changes in sales trends.
Leah Moore, eBay Manager
Joseph Coleman
The benefit to our search visibility has been huge. We've seen a 50% increase in sales since I started updating our keywords using Terapeak recommendations.
Joseph Coleman, Business Director
Speedway Enterprises
Jason Sanchez
With the character limit on eBay titles, you have to be critical about how you use title real estate. We use Terapeak to find high traffic keywords and phrases that drive consumer activity.
Jason Sanchez, Founder
Brennan Agranoff
Using Terapeak, we could see that the top competitor did about $15K per month and their pricing was a little lower than ours, so we adjusted prices. It worked. Demand over the Christmas season exploded.
Brennan Agranoff, Founder
Sidney Isagholian
My experience with Terapeak has been entirely positive. It is very important to me to know my market. Terapeak offers better tools to analyze sales for automotive parts than anything else available to online sellers.

I first encountered Terapeak in 2007. I asked one of the guys at the booth to show me how eBay analytics could benefit my business...and I signed up right then and there. I have been using Terapeak daily ever since.

I would have to add another full-time employee to replace the contribution that Terapeak makes to my business.

We probably use Terapeak a little differently than retailers who only sell on eBay. We have a greater interest in multi-channel sales data.
