The Plight of eBay Sellers Using Turbo Lister

eBay updated sellers on the fate of Turbo Lister, a popular tool that it’s doing away with in favor of a new Seller Hub. The letter spells out in greater detail how it will – and will not – support sellers who continue to use the tool going forward.

Here’s the text of the email eBay sent to sellers:

An important update on Turbo Lister:

As you may know, eBay announced in the fall 2016 seller update that Turbo Lister would no longer be supported starting in June 2017 and key functionality would be available in Seller Hub.

We understand from our conversations and surveys that for some of you, a few of the Turbo Lister features you rely on are not yet available in Seller Hub. In keeping with our promise, Turbo Lister will continue to be available beyond June with limited support.

What this means is that Turbo Lister users can continue to use the tool and contact customer support and the Community Board with questions. However, Turbo Lister is no longer available to new users and we will not be making any product updates beyond support for category changes.

Meanwhile, we continue to add functionality to Seller Hub to make it the most convenient and powerful way to manage your selling from one convenient location. For example, you can upload listings in bulk with File Exchange, as well as create and manage listings from the Seller Hub listings tab. Regardless of how you list, we encourage you to take advantage of the unique competitive features in Seller Hub including performance reports, marketing tools, and growth and inventory guidance.

We will continue to enhance Seller Hub and will keep you posted, as new features are available.

As always, thank you for selling on eBay.
eBay Selling Team
