  1. I would love this! I sell a ton of stuff on ebay (cowboytf) and have quit doing it so much lately because of all the fees! Man, I wish I had it right now!!!!!!!

  2. Well, this is pretty amazing! I’ve just finished listing at eBay tonight, and I’ve got another auction over at thislittlepiggystayshome.com homeschool auction site. However, this looks like a pretty neat deal here!

  3. This looks interesting and could prove to be an alternative to Ebay especially now that they are putting up their fees. Personally I have stopped listing on Ebay altogether recently because it is expensive to keep relisting products and with the new increase Ebay will take a further cut of the final sale price.

  4. I did sign up at the site you pointed to, but only got an email about an upgrade. I still don’t know how to get the auction plugin. 🙁
