Needs an update after all these years. Doesn't real like a Mac app anymore. The interface is a bit confusing.

I started using iSale in 2006, I liked it, it gave me some simple options and for someone new to computers and ebay, it was sufficient... I kept upgrading

Now, that I'm back selling things on ebay, it simply sucks!
It is the most unstable piece of...! software I have owned! It stalls, freezes, quits, is unresponsive and just simply is frustrating to use.

I would not even recommend this to someone that I didn't like!

To the developers - please fix all the glitches and update this app, so I can use what I paid for, or start buttoning up your shirts, your hearts may fall out!

This is a joke. Either get a real web developing app like Flux or Freeway (or even RapidWeaver), or learn a little HTML to spiff up your auctions.

None of these eBay apps are truly integrated with eBay, so you're just buying a PITA to do something that eBay already does for you with their website. Even worse, the auction themes are all canned, so buyers see your auction and know you just used some app to crap out a stock design.

Check out Apple's site for design ideas. Do they use a bunch of schlocky dark page backgrounds? Of course not, they're bad design. The product is the feature, not the page backgrounds. Good photos will always trump cheesy page designs.

You miss the point of an app like this. Simplicity and easy of use. For people that don't know how to code websites and have no need nor desire to learn, by far the vast majority of eBay sellers.

Plus it is a cataloging app and saves every item you ever list on eBay. eBay keeps auctions for what, two or three months, then they are lost to the user forever. I like looking back 1 or 2 years ago and seeing what I sold and how much it sold for.

iSale and products like it are a quick and easy way to list your product on eBay, and easily place several photos into your ad. Its not for users trying to win design awards.

eBay has improved their uploading experience quite a bit in the past year, perhaps making an app like this less useful. But when I was into posting items every week on eBay, this app saved me a lot of time, and I received higher prices because it certainly was a lot more professional looking than what eBay had to offer.

iSale 5.8.5 doesn’t even list all current ebay categories, unusable at this point.

I used to like this program for its simple and (for the most part) efficient interface compared to GarageSale, but without regular releases to incorporate at least the latest ebay features I simply can’t recommend it.

iSale needs to be updated to better reflect the changes that take place at eBay. For instance, I received a notice weeks before that in August eBay was going to allow titles to have 25 more characters, but about a month later iSale is still limited to the old character limit (55, I think). Also, iSale allows insurance as an option for shipping, but eBay has not permitted that for years. For a paid app, the developer needs to be more attentive to the changes and incorporate these into this program.

Pros: Intuitive GUI, nice integration with iPhoto library, excellent collection of templates, well-writen users manual, virtually eliminates need to use the web-based eBay site.

Cons: Can't revise item using iSale after it's submitted, however, it's simple enough to just go to the eBay site and alter the listing there.

Overall, I like this software. I like the "Stacks" like template building.

My complaint that would be easy to fix is that I don't have a 27" monitor so I would like to be able to close the Auction viewer pane. This is the pane (pain!) that is inbetween the editing window and the library panel. I find no use for having this always open! Why don't you guys enable it to close so I can truly work on my project. Further, why not enable the library panel to close as well? Then I could work full screen. That would be the best.

Thank you!

Very frustrating software. Some categories wont transfer to ebay. Image sizes also a problem, uploaded image is not the same size as per isale/ebay preview. Clearing/deleting eqcache, eqbd.plist nor CachedResponses as suggested wont do either. Whilst communication was not bad, still waiting for a solution.

Just beware that you will probably have to give more money to them in the future because they don't offer free updates. And many times the updates are needed since ebay changes their policies often. So you will be forced to update for a fee, I was. I wasn't aware of this when I first purchased their software and probably wouldn't have purchased it if I knew, so I'm just warning others. ---The program though is okay, it gets the job done.

I purchased version 5 over a year ago and am still getting free updates. I imagine when iSale goes to version 6 it may be a fee to upgrade, but that's the way things work in the software business. If I don't like it, I'll keep using the current version I paid for. I suppose whatever you do for a profession you do not offer your services for free either.

Ya you are right. That is how the software business works. The only thing that irritated me was that I had isale version 4 and it was working fine, then one day when I was trying to list a bunch of things it stopped working. It stopped working because ebay changed one of their policies. I had to upgrade to isale 5 to start listing again. Not a big deal. Ya they do work hard and deserve money for their work, but I guess it just irritated me that version 4 became useless and was forced to purchase version 5...but it is what it is and not a big deal. It is a very aesthetic piece of software and doesn't crash or anything so I really don't have much to complain about. Just lettin people know that they may be forced to purchase the upgrades :)

OK, so I enter my FTP details (which weren't preserved from the 2.x demo for some reason, despite my giving permission to access the Keychain item) and hit 'Test Upload', and the whole thing just crashes. Not good.

It also trys to 'phone home' on each start up. If this is just a check for new versions, please add an option to disable this. I prefer to manage my updates through macupdate.com rather than have apps all shouting 'look at my shiny new version' every time I start them :)

Of course, if it's NOT just a check for new versions, please tell us what you're sending back and why...

Ah, found in the manual that the connection is an attempt to download templates - which would explain why there didn't appear to be any in there.

I think I still have a bit of paranoia left over from the last time I used Windows...
