Manage your eBay auctions.

Overview

eLister is an auction utility for use with the eBay™ online auction service which lets you create your auction advertisements, or "listings", offline and at your own convenience. Listings created with eLister can be submitted to eBay™, right from within the eLister application, whenever you are ready to start your auctions.

eLister automatically handles the entry of repetitive data and has many handy features including a variety of templates to make your auctions more eye-catching; HTML formatting menus to add a bit of pizzazz to your listings or to highlight important information; customizable "Favorites", "Insert", and "Web" menus for quick, easy access to frequently used categories, text clippings and auction-related Web sites; off line previews that let you see what your auction will look like once it goes live; built-in listing fee estimations and a Fee-Saver option which helps eLister to pay for itself by saving you money on your listing fees.

First of all, I LOVE this software have have used it profitably for over a year. The reason you have to pay $39 every six months is, eBay requires that the developer pay ongoing fees to keep the right to make software, therefore all sellers of eBay software must pass this system onto buyers. I am sad to say that, even though I love the program, the developer has not sent me the 6 month code that I paid for a month ago, nor answered any of my emails. This is not acceptible as I'm currently unable to post auctions -- which means I'm losing money, a lot more than $39. The developer seems to have gone on a walkabout, which is good if he comes back, but if he doesn't come back I'll be forced to get a chargeback through Kagi.

I must respond to people slamming elister by Black magik. I have been using the program for many years. The only times it let me down were when I zoned out and did something wrong. If you can't get this program to work for you I believe that it is your own fault. With the right items on ebay you can pay for elister with one auction...outwest

I've used this program since its earlier version, Prelister, and I absolutely love it! It improves with each new version and is a pleasure to use! Email support can't be beat with very timely responses to every question I've sent the developer! I've had many compliments on my listings and feel the program is worth every cent! The ability to incorporate muliple images into a listing at no extra charge is fabulous! Keep up the good work, Black Magik and I look forward to your next version! Check out Auction Monitor as well, another great Black Magik auction tool!

First of all, I'd like to apologize to the developer for my comments -- it turns out that the problem was due to a mail error on my end, hence he could not contact me. I've signed up for eLister for another 6 months and continue to use to post items on eBay profitably. One thing people are not understanding at all, when they trash this program and recommend Auction Lister Creator is that the two programs are TOTALLY DIFFERENT. ALC is a very simple program that will allow you to make fancy HTML for pasting into your browser window when listing an item - nothing more. eLister is an actual tool that connects to eBay's site and lists the auction for you. Why is it useful? The short answer is that it saves me a massive amount of time, and enables me to maintain about 100-150 auctions on eBay at any given time, something that would be impossible to do otherwise. eBay occasionally has "free listing days" and this program allows me to post 400 products easily -- doing it through eBay's web interface would be completely impossible. So while the program isn't perfect (shift tab and command A don't work in fields), the developer is a hardworking and honest person who deserves and has my support. If you are only listing 10 items a month, the program (and its cost) are not for you. If you have a business and want to do serious sales with eBay's system, the $40 every six months will be nothing to you, and these people are the target audience of eLister.

costs $39 every 6 months to keep it active, not $39 once, and not very easy to use anyway. I'll keep searching for something closer to Ebay's TurboLister and suggest everyone send an Email to Ebay asking for them to come out with a Mac version of Turbolister. Beware, THIS is the software that Ebay recommends for Mac users!!

Expected to receive a boxed copy of the software but now I'm told that I need to spend $10 more for a CD and a printed manual is not even available. What a joke!

Was forced to upgrade to 2.5 with 2 months left on my 6 month license. Now it doesn't work. It will not submit auctions. Have emailed three times and received one curt reply blaming the trouble on eBay's servers. Nope. Have tried now for two days with no luck. Avoid this product and this company. I wish I'd read the reviews here before I spent $39 for less than 4 mo's of use. I'll post again here if a miracle happens but I'm searching for other solutions. Sigh.

This program doesn't do anything the eBay site can't do so 5 dollars a month to use it is a joke. If it was 1 dollar a month that wouldn't be to bad but it should really be free to use.
