I've loved this software for 6 years now.

Prospector is simply awesomely powerful software, there is a bit of a steep learning curve because of how beautifully detailed and controllable the software is. It's well worth learning because I'm yet to find another piece of software that is half as good as this. Once it's setup with your sear... more

We’ve tried other bidding programs and we now have three licensed Prospectors users in our office.

Super product support, this is an author with an open ear and they really stands behind this software. User friendly and intuitive interface gets you up and running quickly. It follows the Microsoft model, so if you use Word or Excel (and who doesn’t) you will be pleased. Single and group bids are... more

Prospector for eBay is the best software investment I've ever made!

The bid "snipe" feature is absolutely amazing! The trial download won 3 auctions for me within the first 20 minutes of using. Just could not believe how easy it was to place multiple unattended bids on Ebay just as auctions ended. If you bid professionally or are a collector or just an occasional ... more

Excelent tool for sniping!

I love to bid on Ebay. So far I have bought but not sold anything on Ebay. I was losing out on a lot of bids because I would bid early and then be outbid at the last second. Thats when I realized that my competition was using sniping programs. I looked into a lot of them but liked PROSPECTOR the b... more

Excellent Product Great Value

I've not compared to any software as this was the first 'search' tool I used. For the price it's a steal. Setting up is easy and the ability to save searches into logical groups is a real time saver.Support is fantastic. more

Outstanding Program. More features than any other.

Prospector Pro comes in Standard and Pro version. I purchased the Pro version. eBay software is a hobby of mine, and I have purchased over 40 programs in the 7 years since I first bought Cricket Sniper Jr. in December of 1997. Prospector Pro is listed as a Searching Tool, but it does quite a... more

Excelent searching and bidding tool

This is exactly the kind of tool that I was looking for. I can now organize searches in a very efficient search tree then track, hide, highlight and comment each search result and, if I choose to, snipe auctions using the local computer or a remote server. Many more functions are available and I t... more

Version 2.0 of popular searching tool Prospector for eBay is out now. There is a free Lite version that doesn't expire, and a programmable platform for third-party add-ons, through which Ace Sniper has provided a server-based sniping tool.

An alternative version of Prospector for eBay that uses the official eBay API is available at www.moxieproxy.com. This version has improved speed and reliability but lacks sniping features.

Bay Prospector, the searching and bidding tool, has added searching features for eBay stores and the Mature Audiences category.
