MarketBlast eBay software
4D today announced the release of , an affordable program that simplifies the process of listing and managing items on eBay. 4D is selling MarketBlast for a one-time cost of $100, without any monthly service fees. MarketBlast simplifies the way users bulk-list items, post photographs, manage inventory, invoice winners, calculate postage, ship items and report sales. All of these tasks can be done locally on a Windows or Macintosh computer, and the information can be uploaded onto eBay's Web site with a single click of a mouse. A single payment of $100 "means no monthly fees, listing fees, transaction fees, email manager fees, consignment fees or whatever the first generation vendors decide to call their fees this month," said Brendan Coveney, president and CEO of 4D.
Joe Sinclair, author of "eBay Business: The Smart Way," added: "MarketBlast draws on 4D's strength as a maker of award-winning tools that power databases. It provides eBay sellers with a robust, easy-to-use program that handles routine eBay business information effectively."
Veteran eBay PowerSellers collaborated in the development of MarketBlast, providing insight on the types of features needed for them to maximize sales and save time, 4D said.
"The ability to customize and automate email responses is a very useful element," said Paul Chua, a Platinum eBay PowerSeller (eBay UserID: IdealSound). "Using MarketBlast certainly increased my productivity by minimizing the busy-work of managing my data and not needing to worry about emails being sent promptly."
MarketBlast is built upon the award-winning 4th Dimension database and allows users to quickly access all the information gathered from your eBay listings.
