NEWBIE: Taking our ART to the INTERNET. Mac AUCTION Softwa??
29 Nov 2009
Hi Y'all,

1st time poster here. Thanks for reading and your input. I should make my disclaimer: I am a newbie... new to eBay, new to Mac. Seriously, HTML is what exactly?

I'm taking our Art Gallery to eBay (and anywhere that will have use)! It's been long overdue. I'm hoping that you all might be able to make some recommendation for Auction Software for a Mac computer. We need it all design, set-up, and management.

We are selling original New Orleans art. All from one artist. Lithograph, Serigraph, Giclee, this, that, and the other. We have tons of inventory. Bulk amounts of some 150 different types of pieces. We are starting from scratch here. We have the inventory ( completely unorganized at the moment but tons) and the desire to have a web presence.

A few questions:

Any great Mac Auction programs?

I wasn't to impressed by the available templates on iSale or GarageSale. Do I hire someone to generate a template? I want a cool about me page and cool storefront etc.

I'm new to Mac and am tempted to purchase Windows for my Mac just to run windows programs. Crazy?


Thanks in advance.

best,

Hi there and welcome

You have found the most popular eBay tools made specifically for the Mac already, but you can find a more extensive list here: www.webretailer.com/searches/mac-ebay-tools.asp . Most web-based tools should also be Mac compatible.

If you want a template that stands out from the crowd then yes, you will probably need a designer or eBay template specialist to design it for you. A local web designer could probably do this but they will need to understand that it should work as an eBay template in your selected listing program. The specialist companies can be expensive but will definitely be experienced with eBay templates. Here are some to check out, along with a few template libraries: www.webretailer.com/categories...-design-ready-made-designs.asp

Hope that helps!
