MarketBlast Downloads Not Available
26 Oct 2007
Do you guys know if its possible to get a trial of Market Blast 2.0?

We have been checking their website and its been saying the site is being update for this past couple of weeks so we are unable to download a trial version.

We have tried 1.1 but i dont want to start using 1.1 then have to swop to 2.0 if we like it.

Also does Market Blast work for Ebay Uk? As we are based in the UK.

Welcome to the site.

MarketBlast does not work for eBay.co.uk

I don't know what's going on with them at the moment - downloads have not been available for a while.

Does anyone know why?

Any idea what software is out there for the UK that is not going to charge me a fortune to trial?

Ive spoken to eSellerPro and Channel Advisor but the fees are extortionate. It will work out costing me about the same cost to pay an extra persons salary every month.

Here is the auction management software for eBay UK:

It's hard to narrow it down further without more information about your requirements or preferences.

Not Sure whats going on with MarketBlast either. btw, Long time reader here, first time poster

I have about 3 or 4 open tickets with them and getting no response at all. Major problems and I'm not even able to use the software do to problems.

Been with them since the start of the Beta Testing on 2.0 and no matter how much I tried to get it to work right, nothing but problems. Support has been an issue and still seems as it still is.

They pulled their forums off line which now makes zero communication. Not that they read their own forums anyway.

Could have been a great software with great features but the support never brought it up to speed.

Is it possible to sign up to Marketworks to just trial for the 2 weeks or do they bill you right away for the software?

Trialled Market Works this afternoon and its not very good either.

The search to avoid paying eSellerPro's higher than expected fees continues.....

I wanted so back to use MarketBlast but I can't work past it not working. So it looks like I'm back to AuctionWizard2000 .

If you have not checked them out you should. May not look the best and may not have all the nice graphics, But it does work and works solid.

I have to disagree with the earlier poster, who claims that eSeller Pro fees are high, and that it would cost him more than an extra sales person - WRONG!

We list on

Amazon.co.uk
Amazon.fr
Amazon.de
Play.co.uk
Ebay.co.uk
and our 2 website - one retail and the other wholesale

eSeller Pro lists all our inventory at the touch of a button to all these marketplaces - You would need a team of people to list our 12,000 different items, so give eSeller Pro a try, I have been using it for 2 years, and I cant fault it!
