i'm looking for software to list approximately 500+ auctions a week of different items, all similar categaories, but each item is different. (we sell used motorcycle parts) - i like the speed of auction hawk, as i can list a part in about 90 seconds. nothing else i've tried is as fast (a 1 page lister is the key..) and the ability to create similar auctions quickly, it works. it also has nice image hosting, but i've had problems, they can't fix so far.

I am on the team that built . We tried to make the tool as intuitive as possible, but I'm sure we have plenty of room for improvement. If you try out AuctionMapper and find anything confusing or frustrating, please let us know how we can correct the problem. Currently we are mapping only the lower 48 U.S. states, but plan to expand if the project is successful. Our goal is that by using the category tree, item finders, and instantly-sortable listviews,

Anyone else using Marketworks who is about to lose their mind??!! I've been with Marketworks for a couple of years now. And I've always been the first to recommend them to anyone who asks (and even if you don't). But LATELY... the service is horrendous. Back end and storefront sites are down, features get "dropped' and they aren't aware of it til you tell them. Problems with auto-launching, notifications, the list goes on... I'm about ready to pull my hair out. I have 5 (yes 5)

Sniping - an issue again?

Sniping has raised its head again, following the launch of mobile bidding tool Unwired Buyer, and rumours that eBay is adding an API call for bidding - reported in AuctionBytes - which could pave the way for faster, more reliable sniping. :O The practice of automated bidding in the last seconds of an auction has been around for years, but still causes much anger amongst buyers beaten before they could re-bid and sellers who blame it

I am trying to find a simple, but good auction management system. I am not a power seller; somewhat of an ebay newbie. I am looking for a hosted system that has as few graphics as possible (I am a blind person using a screenreader) and not tons of info on one page as eBay has. I was using, which worked fine until they decided to pull it down on December first, the worst time they could do this }:( I have looked at several other systems but some have ju

I just checked the trial version of Bidslammer, mainly because I was interested in their meta search on 150 auction sites, but this is the message I got: Auction Tribune will search 150 auction websites, including eBay, and then notify you of all your items. You'll never miss an item on the Internet. If it's available, we'll find it. Please note that Auction Tribune is down right now due to changes that eBay made. It should be running on May 1.

If I remember correctly, things started getting a bit ugly about a year or more ago, for W.A. software. Their forums became outright hostile in mid to late 2004. Users were claiming NO support being provided. Among other things. Then went offline at the end of 2004. No access since then. The Whiz analysis webpage shows: 1. an award from a pc magazine, Feb of 2004. Quite some time ago. Almost 2 years. 2. No new

I am very, very new to selling on ebay. I have purchased before but have only listed one item about 2 years ago. My husband and I have an immediate need to list and sell some items seriously. We have no income at this time. I recently purchased the Auctions for Income package that was advertised on TV. Thought I might be able to do this but finding parts of it very overwhelming. I want to do this right the first time as I know my creditability to potential buyers is nothing I want to fool
