Fly by night feel, glitchy, slow to load pages

Ebay updates criple the Auctiva site for days.They are always very unprepared. Their customer serv... more

Excellent Customer Service!

I am a new user of auctiva and inadvertently created two accounts during my free trial period (transposed two letters on my user name). I was kind of glad as I wanted to see how good their customer service was. I am pleased to say that my case (submitted online through their help system) was r... more

Auctiva doing false advertisement?

I tried signing up with Auctiva yesterday and was told when looking over their information that we would have a ebay store and could also opt (for extra money) to get an outside regular online store. Well after I signed up and started trying to get my listings going, it would not let me list item... more

Auctiva ? I think not.

A one star rating because there isnt a lower one. Auctiva was a good idea. For good idea's to be great they need to be maintained and improved. I used them since June or so of 2008. My constant complaints were met with answers that typically took one of several paths 'you need to do xxxx to... more

Maintenance times overlap key listing times in Australia

The software is shut down (they say for 4 hours but it never is) during key listing times in Australia. They say this lines up with Ebay, but Ebay seems to keep working. As such I cannot get items up onto Ebay due to the system being continually shut down for maintenance at my desired listing ti... more

eBay listing tool Auctiva has released new versions of its listing pages.

The newer versions introduce a sleek aesthetic, more features and an easy-to-use layout. Auctiva Product Manager Rebecca Miller said, "The new features on the pages have been requested for ages, and we hope they’ll help our users manage their listings more efficiently."

With the new pages sellers can also add notes, end active listings early and restore deleted listings.

Auctiva users who use Verizon as their internet service provider are experiencing slow access to the eBay management tool, reports EcommerceBytes.

Auctiva spokesperson Abby Reyes told EcommerceBytes "We are aware of the issue and are currently working to resolve it in as quickly a manner as possible. We will be sure to keep you posted as any new details regarding the situation become available. We very much appreciate your patience."

Low cost eBay management tool Auctiva has released a number of improvements:

  • A new page where sellers can restore recently deleted listings
  • The ability to end items early
  • Sellers can enter private listing notes visible only to them
  • Accept Best Offers from buyers
  • Add eBay store categories to fixed-price listings
  • Support for same-day handling
  • Bulk packing slip printing

An update to low-cost management tool for eBay sellers Auctiva brings support for larger images, seller notes, and eBay's managed returns center.

Supersized images up to 1,440 pixels by 1,920 pixels are now supported, up from a maximum of 1,024 pixels by 1,280 pixels. The new seller note field allows sellers to make notes about their saved listings which are not visible to buyers. When listings are launched directly from the one-page lister an eBay item number is now automatically provided. eBay's new Managed Returns Center for Top-Rated Sellers is now supported with the option to specify a restocking fee.

Low-cost eBay auction management tool Auctiva is to release a new version of their "supersized images" tool.

Auctiva's current supersized images tool was not well received on its release two years ago. The new version will add thumbnails while updating the navigation and reducing the amount of advertising.

Rebecca Miller, an eBay seller since 1999, has been appointed as the new product manager for eBay auction management service Auctiva.

Miller, a Top-rated seller with a feedback score of over 3,000 under ID bertthedog, has taken over from the recently retired Tony Maxey. Her role includes leading the development of new product features and creating a roadmap for future enhancements.

"I hope to be a voice for customers to help them accomplish their sales goals with Auctiva," said Miller. "I have been an eBay seller for more than 12 years. I know what customers' struggles are. I've felt their pain, and now I hope to help them even more."

Low-cost auction management service Auctiva have introduced a feature which enables users to buy and print USPS shipping labels from within the site.

The system supports USPS services including Certified Mail, Signature Confirmation, First Class International, Priority International and Express International. Auctiva's own Shipping Insurance can be purchased at the same time.

Popular eBay auction management service Auctiva suffered an outage at the end of July, reports eCommerce Bytes.

The site was down over the weekend until 10am PST on Sunday. No reason was given for the outage.

Former Auctiva competitor Andale suffered a week-long outage in 2005 which lead to eBay withdrawing third-party checkout from them. Andale was acquired by Vendio in 2006, which along with Auctiva was acquired by Alibaba in 2010.

Auction management and eCommerce company Vendio has acquired SingleFeed, a comparison shopping engine (CSE) feed management and analytics company.

SingleFeed enables online merchants to submit, manage, and optimize product listings on more than 18 CSEs from a single set of product details.

Vendio will integrate SingleFeed services into its ecommerce platform and will offer discounted pricing. Auctiva, acquired by Vendio parent company in 2010, will also offer the same custom integration to its hosted storefront users.

eBay's certification program for third-party solution providers has been updated, with significant changes to the criteria certified providers must meet - resulting in some providers leaving the program.

The current certified providers are:

The eBay Certified Provider Program was launched in 2004.
