"Overpriced, too difficult, poor customer service"

July 07, 2009  |  By lampmuz

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I've been unable to find the developer site or any recent information with a search engine. I think this product went down for the count but not before many people were robbed. They took advantage of all the people looking for software similar to "Turbo Lister" for the Mac.
Originally, I bought this product for a G4 and it was dreadfully slow - the program was optimized for high-speed internet connections only and performed very poorly on dial up. The learning curve was much too steep and customer service was a total disaster. When I couldn't make the Mac version work satisfactorily, they offered me a free Windows version which performed better but I wanted an OS X version. Finally, I had to write it off as a loss and buy Garage Sale for OS X which performed superbly for, at that time, $30.

"nice program... still buggy"

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
been using marketblast for a week now... program moves kinda slow at times, and hesitates... sometimes the cursor will be in random places in the windows. have problems with the syncing feature. and the program doesn't get listing prices or actually publish my listings as of now... been talking to technical support and they have been extremely helpful. the automated features are awesome on this program. definitely looks like it would reduce work load.

"Impressive and powerful product!"

March 26, 2006  |  By MacSince88

 |  Version: MarketBlast 1.14

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I've only been using MarketBlast for a few weeks but I'm VERY impressed with its powerful automation features. I've tried all the other eBay products for the Mac and this is the absolute best product if you're serious about selling on eBay.

The learning curve is a little steep, but if you stick with it, I believe you'll find that it's time very well spent. It's not just a "lister" like GarageSale, and it doesn't have all the "fluff" features of the unstable iSale--MarketBlast automates just about everything you can imagine.

There are also a number of feature additions and bug fixes from version 1.13 to 1.14. I will be watching closely for future versions--hoping for another significant upgrade like this one. Many major upgrades on other products don't have this many feature additions.

If you only sell a couple items each week, MarketBlast is overkill. However, if you do lots of selling on eBay, this is the best product youâ??ll find. It will save you money and numerous hours each week.

"Speedy Lister"

November 03, 2005  |  By jhunter--2008

 |  Version: MarketBlast 1.11

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
MarketBlast is great to quickly create listings. After attending the online class, I used MarketBlast profiles to create many similar listings in a short time. Once you get familiar with MarketBlast, you can create a listing in under a minute.

The documentation needs some updates because they keep adding more features. The online class and video is more helpful than the documentation.

After playing with MarketBlast, I recommend a quicker approach to master the product. First, watch the Getting Started Video. Next, attend the online class. Finally, you can look at the documentation.

"Solid product for high volume eBay sellers"

November 03, 2005  |  By ariyano08

 |  Version: MarketBlast 1.11

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
For high volume eBay sellers - this product is for you!
Other eBay users - don't even bother.

MarketBlast is solid product (few minor flaws keep it from being excellent, but then again it doesn't cost a fortune), and for eBay seller that has large amount of auctions MarketBlast is tremendous time saver. However, if you just sell item or two per month, MB isn't worth it. Tech support is very responsive, and that's a great plus.

"Great product. Saves me time and money"

October 11, 2005  |  By jaysmitty888

 |  Version: MarketBlast 1.11

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
When people like â??smallbusinessman2â?? complain about paying $99 as a one-time fee for a tool like MarketBlast, it makes you wonder how serious they are about their eBay business. In fact, it must be only a hobby for someone who ironically calls himself â??smallbusinessman2.â?? Iâ??ve been using MarketBlast for two months, and itâ??s scheduling feature alone has saved me more than $100 in eBay fees. EBay charges 10 cents to schedule each listing, and Marketblastâ??s scheduler allows me to bypass that fee. MarketBlast has all kinds of costs-savings like that, such as its use of Flickr for photo-hosting. I guess smallbusinessman2 is not that serious about his eBay business or doesnâ??t understand how to discover savings in a software tool.

"While Testing Demo"

October 10, 2005  |  By smallbusinessman2

 |  Version: MarketBlast 1.11

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Program loaded, Help Menu showed no help. Tried to upload items into inventory using various methods, all of which either didn't work or hung the program requiring a "force quit" each time. You are giving some sensitive information during demo process, so I guess I better trust MarketBlast folks with my Ebay user information???? Also, the email left me thinking that it would download that account into MarketBlast and no longer into Apple's Mail. I'm not sure that I would like that.

Marketing called me numerous times about buying the product insisting that it was a great value. Considering that I just purchased iSale with its limited but working tool set, I was reluctant to purchase something who's featured are shared with Ebay and PayPal already for $100.

Upon emailing tech support, I received no reply due to their being at a convention in San Francisco???? Hopefully they will get back to me with some explanations for the poor performance of the demo. Until then, I'll stick with using my iSale, Quickbooks and Ebay to at least some efficiency. The world waits for the right program. Maybe someday this one will be it, but for now, I'm tired of financing software company bug fixes like those with Microsoft and Macromedia. Someday we all have to stand up to that sort of thing.
