SixBit responded promptly, explained why their... more

Overloaded with features and bugs, slow, crashing and buggy

Well, Blackthorne was buggy, slow, and not perfect, but after using SixBit for many month, I can appreciate BT now. If you found BT to be not that great, then SixBit is much worse. It attempts to do everything, and does everything poorly. Global Shipping Program orders are not importing correct... more

Worse than turbolister

This is by far the worst product I have ever used. I am glad I only used the trial. I had so many problems with this software. At first I couldn't even register the program to begin using it until I had to contact customer service, WHICH, doesn't even give you a phone number. Instead you have to ... more

They reply back quickly with either a detailed fix or fix the issue right away with a new update on there service. I used to use Auctiva and they are by f... more

A new in-depth post looks at five of the best replacements for eBay's obsolete Turbo Lister. They are SixBit, Xpress Lister, Wonder Lister, Ad-Lister and CrazyLister.

This month marks the end of an era, as eBay retires its listing tool, Turbo Lister, after almost two decades of service.

This is driving many sellers to third-party listing tools. But, with several tools claiming to be the premier Turbo Lister replacement, it can be hard to decipher which is right for you. Maybe you've tried several already, but haven't found one you like, or are yet to find one with all the features you need.

To help, we've taken five listing tools that sellers could use to replace Turbo Lister. We've reviewed their key features, and identified which type of sellers they are most suited to.

Ecommerce management tool SixBit, best known as software for eBay sellers, now supports Amazon marketplaces in the US, UK and Canada.

SixBit 3.0 can now be used to manage and submit items to Amazon as well as track and process Amazon orders. Features include:

  • Import existing Amazon listings into SixBit and match with existing items
  • Store Amazon-specific information with an item
  • Create inventory items from the Amazon catalog
  • List to Amazon (only items with an ASIN)
  • Allocate stock between channels automatically when sales occur
  • Revise listings individually or in bulk

SixBit 3.0 also includes a new customizable item entry form. The window has movable, sizeable and customizable panes and tabs to provide complete control over the fields shown, and the order they are shown in.

SixBit also has a new look-and-feel based on Windows 10 and other current Microsoft products. The previous style, based on Microsoft Office 2007, will remain available and can be chosen instead of the new theme.

Finally, the latest SixBit has numerous speed improvements, batch image editing, and direct download of payment fees from PayPal.

eBay selling management tool SixBit has added support for the US Postal Service's SCAN (Shipment Confirmation Acceptance Notice) forms and eBay's new extended holiday returns.

USPS SCAN features are available for Endicia and Express-1 printed postage. SCAN Forms allow sellers to take multiple packages to the post office and provide just a single barcode scan to accept all the packages at once, reducing the amount of time it takes to drop off USPS packages. Forms can also be reprinted.

The latest release also adds support for eBay's new extended holiday returns policy, where sellers have to accept returns for a longer period on items purchased from September to December.

Sellers using management tool SixBit currently have over two million items listed on eBay.

The count doesn't include listings from users who opt out of showing a SixBit tagline, so the true figure is even higher.

Management tool for eBay sellers SixBit has added a feature to quickly add items by their product code, and the ability to control listing and email content using conditional logic such as "if" statements.

The new "Multiple Item Add" feature enables sellers of catalog items (such as books, DVDs or video games) to quickly add items by providing a list of UPC, ISBN or EAN product codes. The codes can be pasted into SixBit, or uploaded from a file. SixBit looks up the items in the eBay Catalog to find product information, and enters them into the selected item template to create new eBay items. Barcode readers are also supported.

The release also includes conditional logic for HTML templates, product descriptions and emails. This means that text (or images) can be shown or hidden depending on each product's data.

SixBit have enabled some analysis tools in the Small Business Edition of their product, including reports on items, suppliers and buyers.

Finally, users of SixBit's Consignment Module now have access to a new Consignors Analysis Tool to see lists of consignors and information including commissions and number of items sold.

Monsoon's Stone Edge order management tool now supports eBay management software SixBit.

SixBit says that StoneEdge was a popular order management tool for users of eBay Blackthorne, many of whom have moved to SixBit following Blackthorne's retirement by eBay.

eBay management software SixBit has enhanced its options for setting the eBay Shipped From location.

Previously a single location would be set as the origin for all items, and would be used by eBay to calculate shipping rates. Now sellers who ship from more than one warehouse or use drop shipping, can set the Shipped From location independently for each item and for each drop shipper.

SixBit has also added a number of features requested by users of eBay's discontinued software Blackthorne, including the ability to submit best offer values as percentages and print Listing Labels like Blackthorne.
