Examining the Turbo Lister eBay Selling Tool
Turbo Lister is a tool you can use to list and organize the items you sell on eBay. Its features include automatic self-updates, predesigned templates, and bulk listing capabilities. To run Turbo Lister, your computer must meet some requirements, including adequate memory and processor speed and the appropriate operating system.
Here are some of the features:
Self-updates: Turbo Lister automatically updates itself regularly from the eBay site and includes any new eBay enhancements so your listings always take advantage of eBay’s latest features. Whenever you invoke the program, it loads and then immediately checks with the eBay server for updates. This can be a bit laborious (especially if the servers are busy or you have a slow Internet connection), so if you plan on listing items at a particular time, be sure to open Turbo Lister earlier, giving it a few minutes to work its updating magic.
Templates: Predesigned templates are built into the program’s Listing Designer. If you use one of eBay’s multitude of colorful themes or layouts, you will be charged an additional $.10 on top of your listing fees. You can use a template of your own design to jump-start your ad design without incurring extra charges by pasting the template into the HTML view. You can even use templates from other sources, as long as they are in HTML format.
Bulk listing tool: Prepare your listings whenever you have the time. When you’re ready to launch a group of them, just transfer them to the upload area, and, well, upload them.
Item preview: You can preview your listings to be sure they look just as you want them to.
All item listing capabilities are available offline: By using Turbo Lister (and its constant auto-upgrading), you don’t sacrifice any of the features available to you when you list on the site using the Sell an Item form.
Although this software is definitely useful, you have to decide whether it’s really for you. The first thing to check is whether your computer meets Turbo Lister’s minimum requirements.
Your computer must be a PC, not a Mac (sorry, Mac users). You have to have the Windows 2000, XP, or Vista operating system.
The processor must be at least a Pentium II.
You must have at least 128MB of RAM (and that’s a bare minimum). The more RAM you have, the better things work.
You should have at least 250MB of free space on your hard drive to run the installation.
Microsoft Internet Explorer version 5.5 or later. To check your version of Internet Explorer with the browser open, click the Help menu and then choose About Internet Explorer. On the top line, your Internet Explorer version number is listed.
