  1. No one is going to put up $15/month to use something that was free, and never worked right anyway. More genius.

  2. Software rentals are possibly the worst thing to happen to the industry.

    Years back, when eBay delivered sales, I wrote a rough templating engine on top of my accounting program. It basically filled in the description field of the listings, though everything else was manual. If eBay sales hadn’t collapsed, I might’ve looked into getting an API key to automate the rest.

  3. DeathFromAbove, WHAT didn’t work right? Turbolister ? or 6Bit? (I happen to love TL, didn’t subscribe to 6Bit because what they offered at the time was too expensive when I had TL but now? it’s sounding tempting.

    I have been using “DRAFTS” on ebay directly and believe me, THAT is not the answer.

  4. Too many smaller users of Turbo Lister are just not going to pay for this and hope it works any better.

    Another ebay promise broken after being misled for years that a free replacement would be available. Guess it is time to learn how ebay’s File Exchange works, or are they going to take that away too?

  5. I stopped using TurboLister in 2004 after it mysteriously deleted some listings without permission. I met John Slocum at eBay Live in New Orleans in 2004 and switched to Selling Manager Pro and never looked back. In addition to efficiently creating listings, SixBit captures sales information and processes orders for fulfillment. It is possible to query orders and sales history from the last fifteen years for analysis. I also added custom software to import new listings from Excel into the SixBit database and import item specifics from a catalog. None of this would have been possible with TurboLister.

    The cost of SixBIt is low when taking into account the value added of maintaining a repository of listings, sales and orders in a secure relational database or the time saved creating listings, modifying listings or processing orders.

  6. and the Nickel and Diming continues…eBay just excels at “Majoring in the minors.”..
