"Totally unreliable! Crashes ALL the time!"

June 29, 2015  |  By ChrisHoyt3232

 |  Version: eBay Turbo Lister 2 build 6.9.102.1

Pros

No pros that I can think of except as a record of past sales, providing it will sync with your computer - and even that seems to be totally hit or miss.

Cons

As far as listing anything is concerned, one can spend hours carefully describing one's items only to find that when trying to upload them (via Turbo-Lister's "upload" button), some robot-driven protocol checker on Ebay's end rejects the entire lot without giving the user ANY indication as to why or which item is not conforming. Then it's up to the user to try and upload EACH item individually until through trial and error one finally discovers the item that did not meet the upload criteria which is nowhere explained on either Ebay or Turbo lister - and which differs significantly by category - e.g., electronics versus clothes. On top of this, after creating listings for 10, 15 or even 20 or more items and then attempting to upload them, I have frequently gotten the message that "Turbo Lister has stopped working" - which means that there is some software incompatibility between my computer and the Ebay servers - and which CANNOT be solved except by using an entirely different computer

Summary

Turbo Lister is an outdated piece of trash and an insult to Ebay sellers (but when it comes to Ebay sellers, what else is new?) Rather than ever risk using Turbo Lister again, I now just overwrite an expired current listing right on the Ebay Seller's page which is 100% faster, more reliable and less frustrating. Lest anyone think this is an exaggeration, please note that none 34 of 34 respondents to this review as of June 29 2015 rate this program higher than one star.

"So bad it's painful"

November 30, 2014  |  By Dajoca100

 |  Version: eBay Turbo Lister 2 build 6.9.102.1

Pros

It enables you to upload ads to ebay. Sometimes.

Cons

Layout, logic, errors, obstructive behaviour.

Summary

Awful program that throws errors all the time with no clue as to how to fix them. Avoid.

"absolutely horrendous to use ..."

November 20, 2014  |  By hackboski

 |  Version: eBay Turbo Lister 2 build 6.9.102.1

Pros

you can list items on ebay with it - just about ..

Cons

everything just about - apart from being able to list items ..
*once you have more than 5 listings saved, the program becomes ridiculously slow
*it can be quite buggy and unreliable at times - item titles change or disappear, photo's dont load etc etc. frustrating and it takes an absolute age to load the listings on ebay
*upload speed - 10kb/sec - do me a favour, you spend ages writing up the listing, ages waiting for the fee's to be calculated then ages waiting for the listings to be uploaded, by the time its done its too late for people to stay up and bid on them! I dread to think what it is like for users with a fair few listings!! Absolute garbage!!

Summary

Extremely disappointed that a multi million dollar company like eBay do not have a flagship selling app with all the bells and whistles on. What they are currently dishing up is nothing short of a disgrace - they need to go back to the programming board and bring out a more reliable, stable and quicker program for listing your auctions. The amount of time spent waiting for something to load, waiting for fee's to be calculated, or for errors to be cleared is nothing short of preposterous ..

"Worked well for years; recently does nothing but crash"

January 18, 2014  |  By stamplarry

 |  Version: eBay Turbo Lister 2 build 6.9.102.1

Pros

If everything worked saves effort listing and relisting

Cons

Totally unreliable since early 2013

Summary

Sudden crashes, frequent data base corruption, loss of work in progress - very frustrating recently and has totally stopped me from listing anything for months. I cannot understand how eBay can let such poor software exist such that their (and my) bottom line is affected. Incredible how they do not react to any of its problems. Tech support is poor - nobody to talk to - only email support and responses on web to questions. I am going from an eBay Powerseller to a non-seller due to this program's problems. Deserves a "0" star rating.

"Worst software I've tried to use in years."

January 12, 2014  |  By cobiecat

 |  Version: eBay Turbo Lister 2 build 6.9.102.1

Pros

absolutely none

Cons

Totally completely horrible, barely works at best, not intuitive, difficult to figure out, slow. What year is this anyway?

Summary

I never write reviews, but this practically useless program drove me to do it.

"Why is this so bad"

December 30, 2013  |  By biscuit1947

 |  Version: eBay Turbo Lister 2 build 6.9.102.1

Pros

None. I cannot find anything I like

Cons

This is a totally unpleasant creation without any apparent merit. I have wasted a lot of time trying to make sense out of this

Summary

Why is this so awful. I cannot believe Ebay have produced this dross without some devious reason.

"A Clever Fraud By Ebay"

November 06, 2013  |  By cnet-com

 |  Version: eBay Turbo Lister 2 build 6.9.102.1

Pros

Hopefully Ebay will be prosecuted for defrauding their sellers. At a minimum a class action lawsuit should be lodged against them.

Cons

A brilliant scheme to create extra revenue for Ebay by defrauding sellers. Everyone agrees that Turbo lister is horrible and cant understand how a multibillion dollar giant like Ebay could distribute such terrible software for over a decade. Turbo Lister is awful by design; it is no accident.
Ebay has a policy where sellers are charged insertion fees EVEN IF THEY CANCEL THEIR AD. Turbo Lister wrecks such havoc to your listings and data that your natural response is to take down your ads to correct them. Ebay is happy to oblige you but they will charge you all those same fees when you resubmit the corrected ad.

The average Seller on Ebay loses money. When you factor in the value of your time, only a tiny percentage of Sellers make money. There are far better markets to sell your wares than Ebay.

"Most unreliable software used since 1985"

September 05, 2013  |  By jm5221938

 |  Version: eBay Turbo Lister 2 build 6.9.102.1

Pros

Suspect TL staffers try hard

Cons

Data corruption, frequent crashing, zero support, rampant with bugs and inconsistencies,

Summary

Ebay management likes to boast that TL is free but the truth is that if they charged for it, the market's overwhelming criticism would force the price down to near free. Have used many dozens of software, for over 25 years, but nothing compares to Turbo Lister in crash frequency and unreliability. Only a company as dishonest as the Ebay Corporation would perpetrate such a piece of @#$@#$ on consumers.

"HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE ?"

August 19, 2013  |  By trvrbh

 |  Version: eBay Turbo Lister 2 build 6.9.102.1

Pros

Literally none.

Cons

Literally EVERYTHING.

Summary

DO NOT USE THIS SOFTWARE ! It will waste your time, ruin your auctions and possibly make you lose faith in humanity. If CNET had any sort of conscious they would take this garbage down and protect future unsuspecting users.

"the most unstable program ever"

July 19, 2013  |  By larsonbp

 |  Version: eBay Turbo Lister 2 build 6.9.102.1

Pros

It is the only free program that "claims" it can do many of things you will need to do when listing on ebay.

Cons

While it does have all of the necessary buttons and menus it doesn't seem to be capable of performing even a small portion of them.

Summary

Been using turbolister for years. I have always hated it, not once have I ever not run into an issue when trying to complete even the simplest of tasks. Each time they update it seems to get worse. It will crash for no reason all, it will crash when you try to open it, it will crash when you try to save your database. Currently trying to backup the database on our account and transfer to a new account, which I have done before (not easily, but was able get it to do it). This time after the recent update it crashes in 20 different places, try troubleshooting 20 different error messages at the same time good luck. I can't stress enough how much I despise turbo lister, do not waste your time, which I could give turbolister -5 stars.
