Best available at this time

Sixbit's ebay management system is the best of what is available at this time, which is why I gave it 4 stars. We were forced to convert to SixBit due to Blackthorne being discontinued in September 2014. Since we had a lot of custom written software integrated with Blackthorne, this has been a ... more

Sixbit 5 STARS for both Product and Service

Often left out of reviews is the nature or number of items a seller may offer. We generally offer between 2400 and 2750 items at any given time, we have been selling on ebay since 2001, full time since 2004. For most of that time we used Auction Wizard 2000. Going into 2012 I began looking for a p... more

Great Product, Amazing Service, highly recommended

So here's my honest Sixbit Review. I have been selling on eBay since 1999 and have been stuck with Blackthorne for years. They have a horrible product and even worse support. For a long time I searched for something different that could work better. Then I found Sixbit. Sixbit is clearly bette... more

After 6 month using SixBit we can now say that it is a great system! If you move to 6b you will not be disappointed. European sellers registered in ebay.com can use this great system. SixBit has a great team with a awesome after sales service and ebay technical knowledge. Do not worry if yo... more

I needed to switch software companies as the one I was previously using was full of bugs and provided little customer support and I could not afford the software instability.

I am loving SixBit, easy to use&amazing customer service! Highly recommended from 11+ yr seller

I finally left MarkerAdvisor/Channel Advisor or whatever they are now calling themselves after 6 years of receiving sub par service with an outdated product (they don't offer eBay variations unless you upgrade to the even more expensive service) and high fees. I found SixBit after speaking with f... more

I find this to be the best and easiest software currently out there for my ebay needs.

I had auctionwizard 2000 for 10 years. I recently switched to ebay blackthorne pro. Blackthorne is workable software with all the things auctionwizard did not have. I still had things I did not like about blackthorne and kept looking and trying other programs. I could list all issues I find with b... more

So happy I switched to SixBit!

I have tried virtually every listing software there is and realized that I preferred a desktop platform rather than a web-based platform. I had minimal options with my preference and when I heard about SixBit I immediately tried them out. I was impressed and relieved that I had finally found wha... more

Multichannel Management » Inventory & Channel Management

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.

Source: SixBit

A new version of desktop eBay management software SixBit has added a number of new features for users of eBay Blackthorne - which is soon to be retired by eBay.

Changes include:

  • The ability to import compatibility sets from CSV, and batch change compatibility sets.
  • An option to force a submission as a new listing instead of using relist credits.
  • The ability to search Orders based on item specifics.
  • A new "Internal Packing List" that is a hybrid of a packing list and a pick list.
  • The ability for Canadian users to change the measurement system and currency globally on the database.
