You may want to take the time to familiarize yourself with using eBay's Turbo Lister program because it can make selling on eBay as easy as can be. Turbo Lister is a free program that you can get from the seller tools section of the eBay home page. What is nice about eBay's Turbo Lister program is that it is easy to install and use. There is not a really step learning curve to using the program. It has many features that you can use when you want to post a lot of auctions in a short period of time. It saves a significant amount of time compared with listing items one by one using the Sell Your Item form.
See, when you download eBay's Turbo Lister program to your computer, you can access it at anytime, even if you are not connected to the internet. This is a great program for anyone that is still unfortunate enough to be still using a really slow dial-up connection. This program will allow you to list a lot of auctions without being online at the moment. You can edit all of the specifics for your auctions while you are offline and update the other fields when an internet connection becomes available.
One of the things I like about Turbo Lister is that it will allow me to choose which site I want to sell my item on. It allows you to choose whether you would like to post the auction in the traditional auction format, the fixed price format, or the classified ad format. There is a listing designer filled with templates that allow you to add formatting to your listings. The program will also you to add a great amount of pictures, set a reserve price, specify your shipping and handling costs or carriers. One of the major things that can become annoying is that it will not let you save the listings if you forget to input data in a field. It also prompts you to back up the data base often and check for updates. Both of those features can be adjusted in the preferences.
eBay's Turbo Lister program enables you develop as many eBay auctions as you want, even thousands of them, without being connected to the internet. When doing so, you have the ability to save your listings for a later date; a time when you can sign online. Once you are connected to the internet, a simple click of the mouse and your eBay listings will automatically be uploaded to the eBay site. The major drawback with Turbo Lister is that it is simply a listing tool. It does not have any of the features that would allow users to be able to track auctions or review extensive data.
One of the coolest features about the Turbo Lister program is the ability to add a batch of items with pre-filled information. This populates the item description eliminates your need to come up with a description of the items based on their keywords, UPC codes, ISBN numbers, titles, authors, makes, models, and several other search criteria. There are many additional features that will allow you to complete listing related tasks much more efficiently. Although it may not be as robust when compared to some of the other tools offered by eBay, I highly recommend the Turbo Lister program.
