What is Bump?
We want to help you sell better!
Bumps help increase the visibility of your items on the marketplace by updating your listing time to when the bump took place. As listing time is a significant component in our search and browse algorithms, bumped listings get ranked higher (especially when the recent sort filter is used). After which, it will behave like a normal listing and be moved down as new listings are added to the marketplace.
By doing so, Bumps can provide your listing with increased exposure. After Bumping your listing, you can compare changes to the visibility of your listing through your Listing Insights.
