Ebay is a virtual marketplace where sellers and buyers can exchange their goods. People from all over the world can use this platform to buy and sell items online, without having to meet in person. It is very convenient for buyers, as they can order items anytime or anywhere. It also saves them time and effort, as they do not have to travel to a physical shop to purchase certain items. This platform is very useful for sellers too. Since they don’t need to maintain a physical shop, they can expand their business easily. eBay has gained popularity among sellers and buyers from all over the world since it was created back in 1995. The site has more than 600 million registered users (Watson, 2013. JotForm is another virtual marketplace that allows people to sell their services through the internet. Customers can post projects on this site, and freelancers from all over the world can bid on these projects and offer their service. Freelancers who are accepted by clients will provide the required service to them. JotForm is mainly used by people who want to create a website and need help in doing this. They can create a website by using the free website templates offered by JotForm, or they can hire a designer or programmer to create one for them. JotForm is also very useful for businesses that want to market themselves online. They can post their products on JotForm and let people know about them. The process of integration of eBay and JotForm is very simple and straightforward. When an eBay seller uploads a product listing on his account, he can include a “Buy now” button so that interested buyers can purchase it immediately through JotForm. Alternatively, the product listing can be linked to a JotForm, where buyers can post their bids for particular item listed by the seller on his eBay account. The integration of eBay and JotForm provides many benefits to both parties. For example, eBay sellers will be able to increase their sales vpume as more buyers will view their product listings due to the presence of “Buy now” buttons on them. They are also likely to attract more customers because they will be able to reach out to potential buyers who do not use eBay regularly.
When an eBay seller lists a product on his page, he can include a “Buy now” button so that potential buyers can immediately purchase it through JotForm (Lambert & Wicks-Lim, 2011. If a seller wants to list an item but does not have enough information about it, he can just include a “Buy now” button on his product listing page instead of filling out all the details such as the name, description, price and quantity of the item. He can also include a Buy Now link within his product listing page that will direct interested buyers to his website where they can place an order for the item using JotForm (Lambert & Wicks-Lim, 2011. The Buy Now link should lead to the JotForm template that includes fields for customers to fill in their shipping address, payment method and other details needed for purchasing an item through JotForm (Lambert & Wicks-Lim, 2011. Once the user has completed entering all the details needed for purchasing the item, he/she needs to click “Submit Order” button at the bottom part of the form (Lambert & Wicks-Lim, 2011. This will redirect him/her back to the seller’s website. The buyer will see a confirmation message on his screen saying that the order has been successfully submitted (Lambert & Wicks-Lim, 2011. The seller will then get an email notification about the order placed by the buyer (Lambert & Wicks-Lim, 2011. There is no limit set regarding how many items a seller can list on eBay with “Buy now” buttons. He simply needs to create a new template each time he wants to list an additional item. The seller should make sure that he creates a different template for each type of item he wants to list. He should also click “JotForm embeddable code” under “Domestic Shipping Options” when creating a new template (Risker & Johnson, 2012. This will allow him to paste the code into his web page easily when it is time to list an item. This way, he can avoid having to enter long codes manually each time he wants to list a new item. In addition to allowing sellers to post “Buy now” buttons on their product listing pages, eBay allows them to integrate with JotForm using other methods as well. One of these methods invpves linking a product listing page with a JotForm (Risker & Johnson, 2012. This method invpves using HTML code in order to create links between product listing page on eBay and JotForm. The HTML code is then inserted into the source of the web page containing the product listing (Risker & Johnson, 2012. The HTML code should also contain a unique identifier for each product listing so that the page can be linked easily with the JotForm (Risker & Johnson, 2012. If buyers are interested in purchasing an item listed on eBay, they need to go through two steps before making payment through JotForm (Risker & Johnson, 2012. First, they need to click the link on the product listing page that leads them to the corresponding JotForm (Risker & Johnson, 2012. Then they need to fill out all the relevant details for purchasing the item and click “Submit Order” button at the bottom part of the form (Risker & Johnson, 2012. When potential buyers find an interesting item on eBay but do not want to buy it right away, they may choose to leave comments on it instead of purchasing it (Risker & Johnson, 2012. This is because eBay allows users to leave comments on product listings (Risker & Johnson, 2012. Comments posted on listing pages will appear directly below the product listings when viewers visit these pages (Risker & Johnson, 2012. This way potential buyers can decide whether or not they want to buy an item before actually placing an order for it through JotForm. For example if someone wants to leave positive comments on a product listing page but does not want to purchase it immediately, he/she can click “Post Comment” button at the top-right corner of every page (Risker & Johnson, 2012. A comment form will open up on the browser screen after clicking this button (Risker & Johnson, 2012. Potential buyers can then fill in all the details needed before posting a comment (Risker & Johnson, 2012. Once they finish entering their comments and click “Submit Comment” button at the bottom part of this form (Risker & Johnson, 2012), they will be redirected back to the original product listing page where they can see their comments posted on it (Risker & Johnson, 2012.
The integration of eBay and JotForm provides many benefits for both parties invpved in this partnership. For example eBay sellers will be able to increase their sales vpume significantly by attracting more customers who do not use eBay regularly (Hoover Babson Consulting Group LLC., 2011; Lambert & Wicks-Lim, 2011. With many potential buyers visiting their product listing pages daily due to presence of “Buy now” buttons on these pages (Hoover Babson Consulting Group LLC., 2011; Lambert & Wicks-Lim, 2011), eBay sellers are likely to attract more customers than before. These potential buyers will be able to view all of the products listed by sellers without having to go through e-mails or phone calls with them (Hoover Babson Consulting Group LLC., 2011; Lambert & Wicks-Lim, 2011. This means that they do not have to spend any time searching for products online or waiting for someone else in order to get them. Instead they can look through all available items without having to spend any time searching for what they want or communicating with sellers over phone or e-mail. In addition sellers are likely to attract more customers due to presence of “Buy now” buttons on product listing pages (Hoover Babson Consulting Group LLC., 2011; Lambert & Wicks-Lim, 2011. Since potential buyers do not have to spend time searching for products or communicating with sellers over phone or e-mail in order to purchase them (Hoover Babson Consulting Group LLC., 2011; Lambert & Wicks-Lim, 2011), they may prefer buying items through these buttons instead of going through several steps just so they
