eBay Seller Asks How to Streamline International Sales

Dear Ina,
I was searching the Net looking for an answer to my question, and I ended up here. So may I ask you my question?

I'm writing from Italy and have been listing on various eBay sites in order to take advantage of the 50/75 or even 100 free listing they offer on each eBay site such as ebay.nl ot .it or.com etc. etc.

I sometimes would like to move some listings from, say, ebay.fr to ebay.de but I don't know how to do it automatically: the only way seems to be fill in eBay forms with everything from the start every time - title, pictures, descriptions, price and so on - this takes too long and is quite annoying (and I've done it no more than a couple of times).

I wonder if there is a way to relist items from an eBay site to another eBay site without having to do all the job each time.
Thank you for your help and have a nice day.
Best regards,
Gianni

Gianni~

I also list directly on US eBay, as well as foreign sites, and I  have been doing that since 2003.

I know of no good way to easily switch listings between the assorted eBays.

You can add several countries to Turbolister. So when you create the listing you choose on which Ebaysite you want to list it. You can make a seperate listing for each Ebaysite and save this in Turbolister for when you need it.

You can duplicate a listing so you don't have to redo the description but you'll have to fill out about everything else.

There are services like linnworks you can use as a stockcontrol software but I don't know if they allow you to actually created listings and list them on your preferred ebaysites.

what gutspiller said about TL is true but I don't duplicate listings, I just export them from one file and then re-import them to the other one. (I also move them between ID's this way. Easy Peasey, using the TDB format keeps the pictures and html intact)

I use a service called Inkfrog. I can create a listing and store it forever.(the primary reason I subscribe) If I want to re-list an item on an Ebay international site all I have to do is log into my Inkfrog account, edit the listing by choosing the international Ebay site from a drop down menu, select update and then launch, and it's done. I could also duplicate the listing with one click and modify each individual listing to suit various countries if needed-say for payment terms or shipping etc.. Inkfrog has several other features you may find beneficial. So, I would suggest taking a look at it or a similar service to see if it might help you accomplish your listing needs.
