Are You an Auctiva User?

If you sell on eBay it is likely that you have heard of Auctiva. It is an eBay auction management tool, that until June, let you use their templates, traffic monitor, and listing tool for free. Now they have announced that due to eBay's new policies they are going to have to start charging for their services. Unfortunately, their new fee chart is hard to understand and that sent me on the search for a new service to list my eBay items through. After seeing several listings on eBay I decided to give Seller Source Book a try. I just signed up today and I am already impressed at how many cool looking templates they have. I also set up my seller profiles already and found that it was not hard to do. I am a newbie to their service but find that even listing an item is easy. Seller Sourcebook offers a clear pricing guide for the services. It can also be used to sell on other sites other than eBay.

As an eBay seller, it is important to make your listings stand out from the rest of the pack. A well groomed listing can attract more interested buyers. A template that matches the personality of the product you are selling can make the product seem unique and special.

I thought I would share my two cents on this with all of you. Do you use Auctiva or Seller Source Book? If so leave a comment and share your views.
