March – May

Introductory Training Period

Sellers take part in weekly coaching calls and training webinars with a dedicated team of support specialists.

Please note: The introductory training period is key to participants’ success on eBay. If you are not able to actively and consistently participate in the training activities during this time, you may struggle to catch up and reach your potential on eBay.

Concentrate on mastering key topics within Listing and Shipping on the Materials tab.

June – Feb. 2020

Growth Period

Sellers apply their learnings to their eBay businesses and focus on growth. Supplementary trainings are offered on about a monthly basis to enhance eBay mastery and general business capabilities. Sellers are expected to maintain active participation levels throughout this phase.

Now that you know the basics, optimise these skills to the next level by completing the workshop training material available on Retail Revival’s Community Board.

 * During the application period, we may conduct screening calls with select applicants to learn more about their business and/or clarify some details of their application responses to properly determine their fit for the program.
