I saw these guys at eBay live 2005. Ilja and Paul demonstrated the software for me. It was very easy to use, keenly priced, and quite robust! There is no recurring fee just a one time charge to purchase the software. A great alteranative to the eBay SYI forms, since those are not very Mac friendly. Good luck guys!

I have been using AW for about 5 yrs or so. I have been loyal ....waiting for the improvements needed to keep up to date with ohter competive auction software on the market.

I wish I could stay... I would love to stay.... I do not want to leave my omfortable software program... I do not want

A review of baconbuttie auction tools by Bargnhtr,
15 Jul 2005
I have had my auctions yanked several times for using this software over the last few years. I always use the latest version of the html code and e-Bay will allow it for a few weeks and then they yank my auctions and send me a stern warning e-mail that I may be NARUed if I keep using it, so now I won't use it. I have contacted BaconButtie everytime this happens and they swear it is ok to be used on e-Bay but I will not take the chance again.

Nice looking and easy to use

A review of Nabit by Andy,
6 Jul 2005
Nabit is a slick-looking program with a minimum of preferences and options - it just works. It picks up your watched items from My eBay and you can add items directly by number, but that's pretty much it - there's no searcher or bidding engine so you will still need to visit eBay regularly.

Impressive and unique

A review of MarketBlast by Andy,
6 Jul 2005
MarketBlast is a capable and well-thought out application with an impressive range of features, even though it is a brand new product. Email marketing campaigns, for example, are in MarketBlast from day one but are still lacking in some long-standing auction managers. In contrast to its web-hosted competitiors, MarketBlast runs locally on your own computer so you will be responsible for your own data backups and need to leave your machine on to list scheduled auctions, but you won't suffer f

Excellent sniping tool!

A review of Auction Sniper by haberdine,
5 Jul 2005
I use Auction Sniper 6 months. Excellent sniping tool! Not only it allows you to bid in a few last seconds, but also you can bid as a group in order to increase your chances to win the desirable item. Their server(s) is located close to eBay servers, and it's a significant factor - if you want to outbid the competitor. Some other services at this program is great - they warn you before the end of the auction if you were outbid - bidder has some time to evaluate the information. I live close

A review of kAuction by tressa,
4 Jul 2005
The creator has thought of everything. Unfortunately, I am a "visual" person and find the format very overwhelming and confusing. I think if the presentation was different, Kauction's rating would go off the chart. I just cannot get used to it and am not comfortable with it.

I found the ultimate solution!

I am a new user of AuctionSage software. My decision to buy this tool was based on the reviews posted on this site. I cannot emphazise enough how happy I am now with this software. I was shopping for management tool for about 3 months - trying different versions -my final choice was between two: AuctionSage and Masterworks. I would like to thank you - the founder of this site and all users. Your reviews and tips were really helpful. AuctionSage program is great, it's exactly what I was looking

A review of SellerVantage by aaron,
29 Jun 2005
I was excited to try this new software because it was web based. They said it was easy to use, but I didn't realize how easy it would be. The software allows me to database all of my customers and it has a quick search bar, so that I can find them in a flash. I'm able to check in stuff under each customer and it will also assign the ever important inventory number for each item. It has a quick lister and it offers unlimited picture hosting. It's linked directly to ebay so I always know how

Great speed processing and intuitive GUI

A review of Fast Photos by esockiton,
25 Jun 2005
This software is simple and effective to use. I use it before loading each picture into Ebay. The external hosting mechanism of multiple pictures is easy to understand and can be successfully trialled within 30 minutes even by a novice. The only difficulty is in understanding how to configure Ebay (using Ebay's Turbo Lister) to do this intelligently. One still wants to take advantage of Ebay's one free hosted picture with any listing, to ensure that a mini-thumbnail picture appears (and not

A review of AuctionWagon Store Manager G2 by dognus,
25 Jun 2005
AuctionWagon's Store Manager Pro G2 has everything I've been looking for in a software system. It takes care of contracts, work-flow, photo editing, inventory and bar coding, shipping, and detailed interaction with eBay. This thing is amazing! I'm telling you. I've tried some of the other programs and internet sites out there and nothing even comes close. If you run a consignment store this is THE essential software.

Either Program abandoned or Developer kidnapped, either way, DON"T

A review of SnipeRight Professional by Belmont69,
23 May 2005
SnipeRight Pro (and Snipe Right Gold, which is very very expensive and I can't find out why) is either neglected or abandoned. The Developer states Sniperight 2.0 will be out in July. That's a message from LAST May about LAST July. And he hasn't changed the message in over 11 months. He is still on Version 1.1.6, which has been "due for update soon" for over a year. His other promised programs are still just promises an entire year later, and his server is sometimes up, sometimes down. If

A review of QuickSnipe by rich_phil,
14 May 2005
It may have been a decent service once, but I didn't even bother trying it out. Go to the beta forum to see why: several users complaining that the service doesn't work. Also there is no mention on the eSteal web site that it is affiliated to InkFrog. In fact there is no mention whatsoever that I could find as to who is behind this service suspicious. Just doesn't sound worth the hassle or the risk.

Worst piece of software I have ever used!

A review of SuperSeller for eBay by Ady,
11 May 2005
Couldn't find one review of this software online (the pro version) before deciding to give it a go...what I had read though sounded good. You know what they say, never trust everything you read. I had it installed for about 2 hours before removing it from the harddrive and sending it back for a refund. (and yeah I got every penny back I paid for it) You have an eBay Store? It doesn't support stores. You want to relaunch an ended listing to take advantage of the free relist credit? Nah,

A review of Sellathon ViewTracker by coffeejunkie101,
11 May 2005
This product is phenominal! It gives such great details of when your auctions are being viewed and how your lookers get to your auctions. I am just amazed at all of the info I have received from using this tool. I've learned a lot about how to improve my listings, what to emphasize, and where my time is best spent on advertising and promotion. I would definately recommend this tool!

Not happy with the stability!

This program has crashed my computer every time I have run it for any length of time. It locks up whenever I spend too long selecting photos within it, or attempt to change certain info - eg. insurance details.It allows you to enter too many words into the payment details section and then refuses to upload it (without explanation). I've had enough and am going to look elsewhere. This baby should definitely remain free!

Downloaded the trial - it seemed to work well at first but then I noticed it wasn't picking up a lot of auctions. Good thing they wouldn't reply to any emails when I asked them why they couldn't accept payment from PayPal. Looks like they've been banned from PayPal too. I've also read reports that their software messes with Data Access Objects and can stop some MS Office applications working properly. I wouldn't bother.

One of the best available, I highly recommend it

A review of Phantom Bidder by Belmont69,
4 May 2005
I have used Phantom Bidder for approximately 2 years, and recommend it. In my opinion it is bullet proof. It is highly polished, has a no-brainer interface, and has many little small things that other sites don't have that add up to a more pleasurable experience for someone who snipes on items that matter. One thing I really really like about Phantom Bidder is it works in the Mature Audiences site, which none of the other 6 Server based sniping sites do. If an item is inside the Mature Audie

I bought the PRO version at the 2004 Ebay Live meeting. It was a great source of Ebay information. However, within 4 months I noticed it was missing auction listings. Some auctions didn’t show up in the analysis. It got worse over time. By the end of 2004 it was useless, only finding a small fraction of auctions. It couldn’t find any of my own auctions. I think they just stopped updating the software to keep up with Ebay category changes. You will find there is no way to contact them except
