Terapeak Description

Terapeak is a service that helps sellers perform research on products, trends, categories and auctions across eBay. The service helps you find what kind of products are being sold on eBay to help you figure out if you’re entering a profitable market. It also helps you get new ideas on what to promote and how to promote it.

Terapeak Detailed Overview

If you’re planning to sell on eBay, then you know how important it is to have a product that people are willing to buy. The research it takes to figure out this data and figure out how other sellers are selling their products can be difficult and time-consuming. Terapeak provides a great solution to this problem, giving you so ways to find profitable products quickly, learn how to get more visibility, and finding out the right price for your auction.

The service taps into eBay’s data and pulls all kinds of different aspects of eBay. The first function I want to talk about is the search tool. Just enter a keyword, and it will pull all kinds of data including the highest priced items, number of listings, average starting price, average ending price, sell through rate percentage (auction success), and number of bids. This gives you a good idea of what the competition looks like for a product.

Now if you want to move forward and start selling, you’ll get all the vital information you need from Terapeak as well. The results show the best time of day to sell, best day to sell, what listing promotions were used, the listing types, duration of the auction, categories used and the price ranges. I am amazed at how you can find out all the combinations of what results in a successful auction in mere moments.

It goes even further with the Top sellers search tool. Want to know the top sellers for specific products or find their best selling product? Just simply type in the keyword and a huge list of sellers will show up in the results. I really like this function, as you can investigate each seller and see what other products are doing well for them.

One thing that has irked me has been figuring out what to write in my listing title. The title builder solves this issue by finding different combinations of words and showing the specific words that have been used the most in titles. Rather than only showing which words are used the most often, it shows the average price so you can choose the combination of words that result in the highest prices.

And for those that want to study a market extensively and look for a niche that has proven itself, Terpeak can help. The trends tool reveals the 2-year trend of the average price, total sales, bids and the sell through rate so you can find out if it’s a market that’s growing or dying out.

Personally, my favorite tool is the hot searches tool. You’ll get 1000 of the most searched words in order of popularity. This tool also gives you the ability to search hot products, media, categories, and titles which gives you all sorts of different options to capitalize on the most popular products and niche markets.

I have no negative criticism for this service. However, new users should understand there is a bit of a learning curve, as you’ll need to know the little nuances of eBay. For example, if you see an average price of $200, the data may be skewed by the fact that the seller was selling a lot of a certain item rather than selling just one. There are a few other scenarios to look out for, so you need to understand eBay’s features and how they work.

Terapeak Reputation

Terapeak is an amazing tool for eBay sellers. I was impressed by all the ways you can search eBay’s listings. The data was presented very clearly so you can see everything without any confusion. The best part of the service is that you can really find what you’re looking for with the filtering options. This really helps you hone in to what you’re looking for quickly. I’ve used many different eBay tools, and they really miss out on this important function.

The service is an indispensable tool for eBay marketers. It really gives you the confidence you need to start selling and dramatically improves your chance of making a profit. Selling on eBay can be risky especially when you have to use drop shippers or preorder a certain number of products, but Terapeak makes sure you don’t have to lose any money selling the wrong products. The value of this service far transcends what you pay ($16.47-$18.58 depending on plan) and is worth investing in.

Terapeak is a scam

Be forewarned if you sign up and try to cancel, even if it is a free trial they will bill you and then refuse to credit it back to you. This is my own personal experience and I am currently still contesting it with them through my bank as I write this.

Worst customer service at Terapeak and Avangate

Terapeak and their partner in crime Avangate are the worst companies, in terms of customer service, I have come across in my lifetime. I subscribed to their service for a trial period and subsequently found to be beyond my needs, so I politely sent an email to cancel my subscription. When I didn’t get a response after a day or two, I sent yet another email to both companies and then a voicemail at Avangate. After not getting a response after 3 emails and 2 VMs I ended up putting a hold on my CC. I have yet to hear back from either one after one week.

I also want to point out that I have not ever filed a complaint in such fashion, but I am so frustrated with the entire experience with these two companies that I couldn’t resist. I am hoping that upper management at these two companies get this message.

A VERY unhappy customer.

Must have tool for any eBay seller

Terapeak is a must have tool for any eBay seller and I love that there is no software to download as it is web based and you can work from any computer (Mac or PC). Have been using it for more than 4 years now they have had some issues with user interface back in a days but they fixed it now; if you just starting out with it may be little bit overwhelming in the beginning, I wish they have had more detailed tutorials and examples on how to find and sell profitable products as this is the biggest questions that every new seller is facing. They have weekly webinars for new users where you can ask questions but still it would be very helpful to have video tutorials explaining how to use service, not just certain features but how to use it for maximum profits.

Terapeak very good

Terapeak is good with helping you to put the right words in and to get your things out so everyone can see. They will help a lot on getting your things out there to sell. It is not expensive either. For what they do, it is fast and easy. It is fast in generating high profits and highly reliable. In several months of using this service, they helped me find out what is hot and not. This is a very, very reliable site and valuable. There is nothing bad to say about this, they really taught me a lot. Use this and you will do great on ebay.

Very Helpful

Terapeak is a great way to find out what is high in demand in the market today. I can find out what to buy for now, such as some of today's hot games for a game selling service, or what clothes to buy for a clothing store. Thanks to Terapeak I was able to find what was hot on the market that matched my sales strategy and business and bought some high in demand items. The site is easy to use, fast in generating high profits, and highly reliable. In several months of using this service, I haven't had a single bad investment that was recommended by Terapeak. The profits well surpassed the somewhat high costs of subscription with Terapeak. I think that I'll definitely end up purchasing another subscription.

I Love Terapeak!

Terapeak has been a phenomenal and most helpful tool for me. I use Terapeak to help with my eBay listings. I've been selling on eBay since about the beginning of this year and Terapeak has proved to be a very valuable tool. At first selling on eBay was slow going as I was learning. I still have a lot to learn, but Terapeak has made my effort much easier. Terapeak helps me know which items I come across that will most likely be a good sell, and they are wonderful with helping me to figure out what keywords to use not only in the title, but in the description of the item itself. I have definitely noticed a difference in my selling after I began using Terapeak. It is a great research tool! I recommend this to anyone who is looking to jump into the eBay selling business!

Excellent Mini Site Partner!

One thing that I've learned in the mini site business is that the hardest part is knowing what exact keywords to include in your write-ups so that when people search for your products/services, you will get a hit in top search engines and land in the first page result. Terapeak has been my ever-reliable partner to doing the aforementioned task, and it makes it a SO much easier task to do, at that! I LOVE the wealth of information that I manage to pull up every time I use the software, it never fails to land me on first page! Plus, when I am at loss as to what products/services to make a mini site on next, all I have to do is use Terapeak and in front of me are tons of choices that consumers are dying to have one of!

I am not an eBay seller (yet) but I personally know some very successful eBay sellers who use Terapeak as their weapon of choice when choosing what hot new items to sell or just to improve their existing listings. It is, in my opinion, one of the most powerful tools that you can invest your money on if you're in the mini site business and/or an eBay seller. Heck you can even use this as a blogging tool, if you want to know what readers are looking for in the Internet. Overall, a top-notch product!
