We’ll that’s news to me! I have been using Crazy Lister for a few months and it’s good for making templates with lots of pre-designed options available, but I want aware you could upload a template to replace your existing eBay listings. I’ll take a look but I’m not even sure how that would work as surely each listing you have will have a different description? I’ve never had a problem with creating a listing in eBay and it’s a quick and easy 2-click process to copy and paste your template HTML into your listing with CrazyLister. The downside is… Read more »

Hey Mark!
Bulk revise a relatively new feature we’ve introduced in 2017.

It uses placeholders for your Title, Description texts and image gallery which are automatically imported from your eBay listings. This way you get a uniform template with a specific content per listing.

Here is a step by step tutorial on how to apply a template to multiple listings –

Try this on one listing to get a feeling of how it works. You can then apply the template to multiple listings with one-click!

I am staggered that Alex Knight considers Sixbit to be closest to Turbolister. I downloaded it on a trial basis and found it bewildering. It has so many things that I simply don’t need and things that I need but can’t find them, no doubt. Why someone doesn’t put together something that looks like Turbolister (TL) walks like TL and quacks like TL beats me. I would subscribe to it immediately. Now, I have to put things on the ebay hub. Great, I have extremely slow internet connection and the one thing I managed to list that way took me… Read more »

Harvey , you are absolutely right.TL has worked for me for years and I don’t like these other alternatives.

I just bought a new computer and my daughter downloaded turbolister 2 for me and now it works pretty fast. I never had problems with it before and still don’.t I fear that suddenly eBay will decide to take it down totally and all the work I have done and listings saved in folders will be wiped out. None of the alternatives sound good to me. Having my listings saved is HUGE! I don’t want a store because I don’t want to be forced to list hundreds of things a month. It seems that eBay is catering to sellers who… Read more »

Sellers are always getting a bum deal anymore. The biggest downfall was when they changed the feedback rules. I loved turbo lister and now sellers have to pay extra for a listing tool. As if we didn’t pay enough in fees. Selling on ebay has put a bitter taste in my mouth. I am quitting soon also. Maybe one day they will realize that sellers are ebay’s income and we should be put first instead of finding new ways to stick it to us financially. Good luck to you, I am in total agreement.

I agree 100% with Harvey or better yet leave TL alone

Wonderlister is made by a former eBay employee to managed TurboLister (Hence the name Wonderlister) at eBay so Wonderlister walks like Turbolister, quacks like Turbolister and looks like Turbolister.

Jeff

I tried Wonder Lister and it is full of bugs. Looking on their forum, there are many bugs reported without any response from the support. They just don’t care about bugs in their software. Not meant for serious sellers.

Rick

I list a few things occasionally on eBay. I also have very slow internet at home, so I’ve used TurboLister to create listings on my laptop, and then bring that to somewhere with WIFI to upload to eBay. So, I’m looking for a free application that I can use offline. The only one, from the above reviews, that appears to offer a free option is Xpress Lister. However, other than having a free version, it has NONE of the options I’m looking for. It doesn’t appear to be downloadable, so I can’t use it at home. And it doesn’t allow… Read more »

I think the point is it’s a replacement for TurboLister that is suitable for the majority of people who used it. Nothing can be all things to all people, we all have our preferences, foibles, and specific needs, but things like Xpress Lister are primarily designed for those who do have shops and run businesses on the site rather than the casual user. For your purposes you would probably be better off just typing out the information into a notepad and copy-and-pasting it when you’re online, which would take minimal bandwidth. Either that or I think it’s possible to use… Read more »

So in short there is no free alternative. Our options are all pay services. This is bullsh*t, I don’t want to incur another cost for ebay, a dying marketplace that brings in so little now. $30 god damn dollars a month for these services?! That’s a RIPOFF! Why can’t someone make a program that we can just buy, everything has a recurrent charge now. It takes so ****ing long to list manually on ebay that it’s not even worth the effort even though it is the most active venue, I’m sick of their sh*t, They’re killing their own site, maybe… Read more »

SixBit is one of the most confusing programs in the history of eBay. It is nothing like TL and anyone who actually used TL and tried to switch to it would know that.
Turbo Lister wasn’t a complex program, and while all these “alternatives” have popped up the truth is, a slightly updated TL clone would be the most popular eBay listing tool ever. Even if it had a one time $99 price tag! Why isn’t it being done?

Greg Miller

Having been a long term user of TL, I was disappointed when it was discontinued. Thought I would try WonderLister. It di transfer my files from my TL file, and I thought it would work. However every time I tried to upload a file to ebay, wonder Lister would default to Fire Fox, and lock up my computer. to me it is worthless, so I cancelled it and will use something else

Margaret Haggar

I continue to be a TL user because I have my inventory stored and my descriptions written so I can upload at any time. You can still download TL updates of category changes just no software support but I rarely needed support anyway so TL still works for me. Just bought new Windows 10 computer and could not download the entire TL software but my daughter searched the internet and found out how to do it so now I have TL once again. She transferred my TL files from old to new computer. I have created new listings and uploaded… Read more »

Very informative . ???

Me, too, Margaret. I think ebay jumped the shark when they announced they would no longer support it. There was such a hue and cry that they finally said they would leave it alone for the time being but then would expect sellers to use sellers hub in the future. I spoke at length with an ebay rep asking questions like long term storage of listings, photo storage, etc, and they simply had no answers which means to me that they had not thought of how people use turbo. Typical ebay!

Eric Parkman

Hi. I was appalled when eBay announced their intention to abandon Turbo Lister (a fantastic tool I have been using for 10 years or more). After reviewing the options available I was unhappy at having to pay further fees to run my modest operation and was delighted to discover, despite the alleged ‘switch off’ Turbo Lister still worked and could be updated. I am still continuing to use it to date and the only flaws I have found are the need to ensure this listing is compliant, once uploaded to eBay. I’ve banged on about this for years but I… Read more »
