HammerTap Description

HammerTap is a subscription service that helps eBay sellers conduct extensive market research about products, categories and sales figures. The company’s goal is to help eBay sellers increase profits, cut advertisings/investment costs and increase efficiency for users. The company is a member of the eBay Market Data Program which means they have a licensing agreement with eBay to provide you rich historical data of what kinds of products sell and which auction do well on eBay.

HammerTap Detailed Overview

As an eBay seller, you need to know if your product is going to sell and what kind of volume you can expect. You also need to keep up with the trends of eBay as well as look for new products that you can sell in your product line. Choosing an unpopular product results in you investing money in the wrong product and leaving you with losses and an inventory you need to get rid of.

HammerTap is a subscription service that allows you to search eBay’s database using their web interface. The goal is to not only to prevent costly mistakes, but also help you increase your profits and grow your business. It doesn’t matter if you’re a beginner that needs to learn what products to sell or an experienced eBay seller that wants more profits out of their auctions, the service will help you sell effectively.

The HammerTap search tool is very easy to use and pulls in results very fast. The first function is the keyword research function in which you can type in your keywords and pull up the statistical data of all auctions that have been completed under the keywords you entered (for example: nike shoes). You’ll get all the information you need to see if your auction will be successful such as the number of listings, the percentage/number of listings that resulted in sale, the median price of a sale, number of sellers and the average sales/revenue per seller.

Now this kind of information is comprehensive enough that it can help you literally choose a product to sell on eBay with a good deal of confidence, but that’s just the beginning. There is even more data that show you what listing types end in the highest percentage of successful listings and which ones result in the highest average sale price. You’ll get the same kinds of data for auction ending days and time, as well as for the duration of the auction.

The stats also include information about what starting price helps start a bidding frenzy, which listing features help you make more money or are just a waste of expenses (like gifts, highlighting, bolding, gallery), what category listings results in the most exposure and what keywords you should include in your titles to get more bidders.

If you want to just take a browse through a market to brainstorm products you can sell, you can use the category search to look through different markets and get a statistical overview of all the auctions in that category. You can also spy on other sellers by typing in their username and getting a history of completed auctions under their account.

HammerTap Reputation

HammerTap is a must-have tool if you’re serious about profiting from eBay. The interface is very easy to use, and the data is presented to make it easy to analyze. I’ve never seen a research tool as comprehensive as this, and since Hammertap has a licensing agreement with eBay, you can be sure that the data is reliable.

The subscription service includes the power to profit course, which teaches you how to use the HammerTap research tool in ten sessions. You’ll also get live webinars and articles containing tips on selling with eBay.

This service answers finally the question “What should I sell and how should I sell it?” The research tools allow you to find the products with the biggest profit potential, find the best ways to get more exposure, save money by listing correctly, gauge market demand, and spy on your competitors. The service has a free 10-day trial costs $19.95 monthly. There’s a 90-day money back guarantee which is very rare for subscription services, showing the company is serious about customer satisfaction.

Take some time to get used to interface and mountains of data

It is valuable tool for eBay sellers but it takes some time to get used to the interface; mountains of data can be quite overwhelming for new users but this data essential to develop successful sales strategy as there are bunch of factors involved and you should not rely on guesswork. I wish they rolled out updates more frequently and online version of service similar to Terapeak. I started from Hammertap and then switched to Terapeak as it is more convenient and you can use it from any computer (Mac or PC) .

Essential for Serious eBayers!

If you are a serious eBayer, then HammerTap is an essential tool to make use of. I've been selling on eBay for a little while now and I find the HammerTap beyond helpful. Besides helping me track popular item buying trends, HammerTap provides great keywords for listing my items. I usually find my items on the first page of listings. Also, when deciding what items I'm going to place on eBay, a search in HammerTap let's me know how well percentage wise a specific item is doing on eBay.

HammerTap has definitely made my eBay sells much easier and more effective. It is a great research tool. I believe you can try it free for ten days, but if you are serious about selling on eBay it's best to just pay for it. HammerTap is definitely worth it.

Interface should be improved

This site is really a must have for anyone selling brand new goods on eBay. It provides a brilliant market research and calculates demand for several items through search queries. I have found it to be very accurate especially on the high demand section. The only problem that I have with it is the interface. Sure it does look good and all but when you open a survey there should be a prominent home button instead of making you scroll all the way down to access the front page. If the buttons were properly organized I would give it an A but I am still giving it a B.
