Editors' Review


For the casual eBay user, the options present within the eBay Web site itself are probably enough. More serious auction-addicts, however, need advanced tools for searching, monitoring auctions, and bidding. Prospector Lite supplies these tools in a well-designed, intuitive format.

Prospector Lite's interface is browserlike and intuitive, making it easy to navigate. Users can surf eBay just as they would in a regular Web browser, but Prospector Lite adds plenty of handy eBay-specific tools. Users can create complex searches that use a wide variety of different parameters; these searches are then saved in a handy tree format, allowing users to quickly access them and view updated results. Prospector Lite can also be used to schedule bids to take place just a few seconds before the end of an auction; sneaky, yes, but all's fair in love and eBay. The program also has a tool that allows users to block search results from particular sellers, and the Auto Tracking feature records information about your current session that might be useful. An online Help file is well-written and quite thorough. Overall, using Prospector Lite is very much like using eBay, but with way more useful features. Users who do more than occasional eBay shopping stand to gain more relevant search results and more winning bids with Prospector Lite.

Prospector Lite is free, but the Lite version has a limit of 30 searches a day. The program installs politely but leaves a folder behind upon removal. We recommend this program to all users.

"Horrible learning curve"

Seems like a nice layout if the features actually would work.


I can use scripts in excel, access, and know HTML and JAVA, but after 3 hours of playing with the search function and reading through the entire help file I couldn't do a basic search.


Do not waste time.

If you use ebay more than occasionally this program is for you. Helps you orginize your auctions.


So far I have not found any except that you have to go online to their site for the help file, but no biggie.

"Snipe feature removed"

Nice way to manage your ebay stuff


If you're looking for a free sniping tool, look elsewhere. Looked around for 15 minutes before finding in the help section that the sniping tool had been removed per ebay's request with v9.


Nothing I need. Perhaps could still be a good program?
