Not very intuitive, every reviewer on here gets free stuff from the company
7 May 2009
Initially I was very excited because of the glowing reviews........ ...... ................. .
.............. but then I realised every reviewer on here gets free stuff from the company!!!!

I found the software to be not very intuitive at all, I’m an eBay user for 10 years.

There is a very long instruction manual and no getting started video or anything like that. I tried AUCTION SIEVE and AUCTION GNOME, both very intuitive.

After about 3 hours I uninstalled it.

Still if I decide to change my mind I should qualify for extra stuff from the software company for writing this review.

Here’s to unbiased star ratings

I'm the author of Prospector. When the program comes up, the Welcome page has a section titled "Introduction" with links to specific topics, and another titled "How Tos" with links to Flash movies.

We can also be reached at support@bayprospector.com if there are things that we can help clear up if they aren't covered by the help pages and movies.

Regarding free stuff, while we did run brief promos in the past, we've received many reviews here and elsewhere where the vast majority of reviewers received no compensation from us.

I'm sorry the program didn't work out for you. I created the program when I really wanted to scour eBay and not finding programs that made that easy. I believe it really does save a tremendous amount of time once it's set up, and I'm glad that many other users agree. If you decide to give the program another shot, you can send me an email and I'll do my best to clear up any problems.

Incorrect assumption

Rd555,

FYI, I checked and there were 3 reviewers on that took advantage of this offer since inception from 6 years ago, so your statement that "every reviewer on here gets free stuff from the company" is false.

Users are free to download the program and see for themselves and compare it to your recommended Auction Sieve and Auction Gnome.
