Anyone have any insight to selling configurable items on eBay without having to be a powerseller and paying the $299 a month + $1500 startup fee for solutions like Infopia?? Not sure why they selling configurable items like PC's is a holy grail that requires 300 a month to do.
A little background on "Configurators"... they are currently offered by Infopia and ChannelAdvisor (Merchant Edition), and allow you to list an item which the buyer can configure by choosing different options. The configurator then creates a special Buy It Now listing with the options requested and a calculated price.
You are right in saying this is an expensive technology that is only an option for sellers with a big budget. Other sellers will probably list a selection of pre-configured items as standard auctions to attract buyers, then have a wider range in their eBay Store.
Anyone have another way of selling configurable items?
