Auction accounting software
21 Feb 2008
Hi All,
Can anyone recommend an accounting application I can use to keep account of my Ebid and Ebay sales. I've tried Quickbooks, Microsoft Accounting and the like, but I find them quite intimidating! I'd like something that's been specifically designed to keep track of my online sales, stock and expences. Preferably free or very reasonably priced too!
Thanks

Hi Gareth, and welcome

There are three accounting tools I know of which are specifically designed for eBay.com sellers: Accounting Assistant (eBay's own - exports to Quickbooks though), Auction Accounting Pro, and KeepMore.net.

I don't know of a tool for eBid, sorry.

I should mention that there are also accounting tools for eBay.co.uk - Tradebox Finance Manager for eBay Sellers and Sage Starter Package for eBay (a variant of Tradebox for start-up businesses).

Quickbooks is what most small businesses use. If you're using auction software, it is possible to link it up to Quickbooks so that the process is automated for you. However, it's around $1,000. Your best bet is to not be intimidated by Quickbooks and instead learn how to use it. It will make you money and teach you how to save money. It should be the center of your business.

"Quickbooks is what most small businesses use."

Not in the UK, the market is dominated by Sage...
