Frequent Asked Questions – EBA Visitors and Bike Shop Owners
Check the table of content to go directly to the question you are after. If you can’t find answers please contact us directly and will get back as soon as possible.
Does EBA trade electric bikes or related accessories?
No. We don’t commercialize or trade any electric bike or related accessories currently in the market. Our goal is to give you an idea of what we think about them.
Most times we receive a lot of inquires about how to repair a damage element or why something is not working well.
We love to help and try to guide you if we can but, we DO NOT build any of them. It is always best to contact the manufacturer directly .
Alternately, you can look for a bike shop near you that specializes in e-bicycles by using our advanced search function here.
Submitting your Bike Shop Details
How many bike shops can I submit?
If you own more than one bike shop, you can submit as many as you want. You just need to make sure the correct address is typed and the listing category.
What are the bike shop image requirements?
Before uploading any bike shop images / logo, please ensure they are optimized. What is an optimized image? The size of the images should be no more than 50kb and 300×300.
The system will not allow you to submit if images are over the standard.
What is a free and a premium listing?
If you decide to go for the free listing, you just need to fill up all the mandatory (*) fields.
Bike shop owners or managers will be able to list for free in the directory page. Visitors will be able to find all the shop information (address, website, business hrs, etc).
Once you submit the details, we will receive your application for approval. If there is any item that needs clarification, we will get back to you before going live.
Once all is approved, your listing will be seen ONLY in the ebike shop directory section, where visitor can review for information. Your listing may not be necessarily at the top of the ranks.
The premium listing is similar to the free one but with additional benefits.
1. It will get your business on top of the EBA search page. This is good since it is known that 80% of users on internet never scroll down (called going bellow the fold).
2. Your bike shop would be featured and promoted at the top of specific articles / reviews we may have, as the example below:
If your bike shop has an ebike a visitor would like to physically see and potentially buy, this is the best way to get their interest and find your business.
You just have to tell us where you would like to be featured and for how long.
The cost of featuring your business is only discussed with you if there is a genuine interest in promoting with us.
If you go ahead with the premium listing, we will send you an invoice payable before going live.
Please know that, if a visitor buys an electric bike because they visited your store as a result of our referral, we won’t be asking for a commission. It is just a standard monthly fee.
You can pay by using any of the available methods (Credit Card or Paypal (preferred)).
Before you panic with how much could cost promoting your business, please read the trial section below. I know you would love it.
Does EBA offers a trial?
Yes, indeed. In order to give you a feeling of security with your small monthly investment (if premium listing), we are offering a six months (6) trial.
This is not applicable for additional bike stores you may want to submit.
Of course, the trial period is only applicable for stores that would like to get the premium benefits listing.
After this trial period, if you have not downgraded you listing (to the free one), we will send an invoice for the next month and take it as you want to continue promoting with us.
Of course, we will be notifying you when the Premium Listing is about to expire, so there is not undesirable surprises.
Upgrading or downgrading your listing
No matter if you have chosen to go for a free or a premium listing, you can always upgrade or downgrade your package anytime.
You just need to send a request in writing by emailing at [email protected]
Please refer to the free or premium Listing section above for further details.
What listing option should I go for my bike shop?
There is a couple of aspects to think about:
- You have an ebike model that we have reviewed on our website; if so,
- Do you want to promote it and along with it, your bike shop?
We would always recommend Bike Shops to go for the Premium Listing if the two (2) above conditions apply.
I want to promote one of the ebikes but there is no review on EBA, what then?
If we don’t have any of the models your business is currently trading, we would be more than happy to work and publish a review.
To publish one, we can either:
- Visit your store so we run through the review. We would film and take photos for quality.
- You can share a video reviewing the ebike yourself. From here, we just create the text and embed the video so visitors are more engaged.
We know there are a few more questions that can come up in mind so please don’t hesitate to contact us.
How EBA generates revenue?
There are two (2) ways EBA generates revenue:
- Amazon Associates through qualifying purchases as a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees.
