iSale 2 update
After a preview of the latest version of iSale at "eBay Live!" in San José, today released version 2.0 of the auction manager software. equinux is offering this upgrade for free to all registered users of iSale. Now those using eBay Stores can post auctions directly to their store. In addition to .Mac image hosting, iSale also now supports FTP Servers. Using either of these image hosting options will alleviate the need for per-picture-charges allowing users more freedom and flexibility in the improvement and design of your auctions.
Another notable change in iSale is an improved "Category Browser." Rather than filtering through categories, users can now search and save often used categories to an integrated "Favorites" tab. Additionally, the file path is displayed beneath the browser window, granting the opportunity to directly jump to the eBay website to view other listings within that category.
iSale also now includes an eBay style preview. With a single-click of the eBay Preview button, iSale will display a preview of your auction exactly as it will appear on eBay. Consider this a "Print Preview" for eBay.
The update is topped-off with improved navigation, an expanded Dashboard Widget, a new "Drag and Drop" auction exporting feature as well as the possibility to update the status of every finished auction with just one-click of the "Status" button. Lastly, those using eBay USA will happy to see that "Calculated Shipping" has been added to iSale.
"The honor of being recognized at the Apple Design Awards is not only a reason for us to celebrate but also an obligation for us to maintain a high level quality," said Till Schadde, CEO of equinux. "We would like to pass our joy on to our loyal customers; therefore, this update will be free of charge to all registered iSale users."
iSale is $40 for new users.
