If you want to get straight to the data, here’s a jump down to the full list. Save time selling on e Bay, price competitively and offload repetitive jobs. Feedback volume is a useful approximation of the number of units sold, but is not directly linked to sales revenue. I’d love to hear your own observations in the comments at the end.There is no change in the number of international sellers from other parts of the world.Australia has been a big success story for e Bay, and has also attracted a large number of Chinese sellers.Looking at the country standings overall, China has gained 10 sellers in the top 1,000, Germany has an extra 12 sellers, the UK has lost 18, and there has been little change elsewhere.China is very secure in its position at the top, but if the UK and Germany continue their current trajectories, we could see Germany leapfrog the US to take second place, while the UK drop to fourth. These are the categories which the top 1,000 sellers list products in the most.
