Best Software For Me
24 Jul 2009
Hello everybody,

I am actually in need of a software taht should be capable of doing thins stated below;

- I need to be able to add my own HTML template and make changes on it
-Image hosting and I need to be able to locate where the image goes on the listing
-Bulk Listing

I have actually used SpoonFeeder but I could not find how to add photos to my own HTML listings. Apart from that the software was very useful

Additionally I have used Listing Factory but with that one I was not able to choose the items' Store Category

and finally I am trying to use inkFrog but that is an online service ...

What I need is a proper software

I appreciate any suggestion / advice...

Thanks in advance

Hi mcson,

Most auction management packages are web-based now, but if you want low-cost desktop-based software AuctionSage and eBay Blackthorne are worth trying.

Hi,
Have a look at our company's software. It is an integrated self managed (CMS)e-commerce website which automatically creates branded ebay listings. The listing will mirror your corporate identity in your own website, allows for unlimited information and also unlimited photos (hosted from your website!!) You only enter data once, it automatically resizes and watermarks your photos.

Take a look at www.rapidretailer.co.uk

Many thanks,

Hello mcson,

I agree with Andy that most systems are web based but our system RapidSeller is a desktop based application. Windows based programmes have many advantages over web based programmes, (if you need proof of this look at the success of Google Docs and Google Spreadsheet v Microsoft Office!).

RapidSeller Benefits include:

A simple and familiar Windows environment - No 'clunky' Web interfaces.

Speed and ease of image handling with automatic resizing to suit your website and all eBay images which is also integrated with Picasa to make
easy and simple alterations.

Automatic generation of eBay HTML (which can include unlimited images and text).

Easy generation of bulk listings.

No waiting for uploading of images to eBay (which is especially frustrating at busy times), as this happens silently as an automatic FTP in the background.

The ability to link directly to specific eBay listings from your website via our finder system.

Built in fully SEO optimised website which generatesmany pages of 'flat' HTML with RESTful URL's from a dynamics source.

We also have an amazing product called Imagi.es (imagi.es), which we are close to launching. Imagi.es can handle bulk images via FTP and has the ability to resize images 'on the fly' just by changing the URL - go and create an account and have a play - it's free!

If you need more info please feel free to contact me.

Hi Mcson,

We configure fully tailor and configure RapidSeller in the first instance for you so all you have to do is to add items - its not just a download!

RapidSeller comes with a fully configured dotNET website. All of the prices are listed at www.rapidretailer.co.uk/Pages/Pricing.html and we can offer an 'easy payment' option with a deposit and monthly payment.

There is no minimum contract period, as we know as soon as you start to use it you will never switch - it has after all been created as a solution by a Platinum PowerSeller, (eBay name LHDAutos - www.lhdautos.com) who turned over £500000 on eBay last year!

If you want to get in touch my contact details are also on the RapidSeller or RapidRetailer sites.

Kind regards,

I read the note from Damon, and quite surprised to see misleading comparison of desktop vs web without analyzing true merit of each ..

There are definitely advantages and disadvantages both ways, but we as product developers, must not resort to rhetoric which will mislead seller community .. We should address their business need and recommend what is right for them (does not have to be our own product, because we all have strength and weaknesses in our products) rather than simply getting opinionated and at times being pushy

Paul,

It is certainly not my intention to knock, dismiss or be pushy I am after all not a developer but a user who had a genuine problem which needed solving. (I was a full time eBayer since 2003 and now I am now a 'hobbist' eBayer though I still maintain Platinum Powerseller status).

I have spent a vast sum of money and two years developing RapidSeller which is a totally unique solution for me but which also suits high value specialist traders on eBay - I am not saying it will suit everybody - it certainly will not although it is loved by every eBayer who sees it without exception.

The only problem is not everybody can justify its cost, (even though it is exceptional value), as it is a fully configured total solution with a CMS Database, a photo handling programme which automatically resizes and edits photos, a fully search engine optimised (using RESTful URLs) dotNet website, and RapidSeller which generates eBay HTML auctions which mirror the website and the corporate branding of the user.

Regards,

Damon

How does it compare, say, to a desktop package like Auction Wizard 2000 which at first glance seems to do pretty much the same as your package? AW2K essentially follows the transaction from entry into inventory to posting on eBay to completion of the sale and exchange of emails.

We are looking to start up our eBay business again after an absence of two years and are looking for the best solution - that will permit us to bring in and post the most with the least effort obviously... most efficient.

Comments?
(Tnx)

Hello everybody,

It has been quite a while since the first message however not surprisingly I still could not find a suitable software to my needs.

There are hundreds of softwares out there on the internet but most of them are **** to be honest.

Most suitable I have found so far is Auction Wizard 2000 which unfortunately works only with Ebay Us and USD.

I would like to know if there are similar softwares to Auction Wizard 2000 which can work on other Ebay sites as well?

Thank you all in advance

Which eBay sites do you want the software to work with? If you do a directory power search for desktop auction management software then choose an eBay site in the "Country/Marketplace" box that will tell you what is available.
