Here's what they have to say about inkFrog:
"We've been selling on eBay for two years now. We started using inkFrog in about August of this year.
inkFrog has allowed us to integrate our online store and our eBay store which means we have less double handling. Essentially, we have one collection of stock across the two platforms which has made management of sales, listings entries and editing a far less laborious task than if we had to list items separately on each platform. With the ability to setup templates and master profiles inkFrog has allowed for maximum efficiency which has helped our business easily manage its growth."

How inkFrog Makes It Easier for We Are Hunters to Sell on eBay
This article was written by Danna Crawford, Strategic Director, WorthPoint, Inc.
While speaking at an event recently, someone raised their hand and asked, "What is a WorthPoint?" At that moment I had a flashback of someone doing the same thing a few years ago, only at that time they were asking "What is an eBay?"
I guess when people like "us," you and I reading this article, are obviously "internet savvy" we assume everyone else is. But the fact remains, not everyone "gets-it" like we do. Not that we are any better than anyone else, rather, we have a better understanding of using online websites and internet resources.
For me, my earliest internet resource was eBay. eBay helped me become a work-at-home-mom-entrepreneur, and I soon became a consignment seller growing the "PowerSellingMom" brand. Over the years it became challenging and time consuming to try to identify and value the vintage collectibles and antiques consignors would bring me. This is when I discovered WorthPoint.com.
WorthPoint saved me many hours of online research time, along with thousands of dollars I may have lost, because I did not understand how to read marketing trends.
Back to that question “What is a WorthPoint?” WorthPoint to me, is the key to my eBay selling success! It helps me not only figure out the value of my items, but it helps me develop an eBay listing strategy to help get the item sold.
WorthPoint is not just for eBay sellers. It’s a resource tool for anyone that owns antiques, art, or vintage collectibles. WorthPoint is the perfect tool for anyone trying to identify and value these types of items, whether they own the items or are thinking of buying or selling them. WorthPoint can help the antique dealer, flea market vendor, and the thrift store owner understand how to price their items.
WorthPoint is also the perfect tool for folks left with estates and have no clue if they should sell or donate. Another type of person who can benefit from using WorthPoint is the type that unfairly lost their precious items, and they are unsure how to put a price value on the lost items to submit to insurance companies for a claim. WorthPoint has been offering a service to the recent victims from the California fires to use the website free of charge.
WorthPoint is a small company of which I am proud to be a part. I was honored 2 years ago, when Will Seippel, the CEO, contacted me to lead up a new program about treasure hunting and organize "Treasure Hunts" around the country. I accepted the offer, and now as a "Strategic Director" I get to assist collectors and sellers, helping them source treasures at the best prices.
Will Seippel the CEO and founder of WorthPoint sums it up best: "Why I created WorthPoint? Shown is an 1899 Mardi Gras medal from New< Orleans. I recently bought this in Maine for a few dollars at a flea market. This morning I retrieved it out of my suitcase to sell and looked up "1899 Mardi Gras medal on WorthPoint and this similar one came up that had sold for $475.
I could not quickly find it elsewhere. I listed it on eBay at $500 and it sold in 10 minutes on eBay. The profit would pay for 2+ years at WorthPoint! You cannot afford not to have it!"
Nowadays, everyone knows what an "eBay is" since it is, after all, the world's largest online auction/marketplace. Now you’ve been enlightened to know:
Would you like to discover which eBay sellers are selling more than you and see exactly how they are doing it?
Well now you can! Today we are excited to announce the release of inkFrog Analytics.
This isn't just a statistics program, it's a market research tool, competitive analyzer, and marketing tool all in one perfect little bundle. You will be able to take your eBay business to a whole new level with inkFrog Analytics. But we want to show you exactly what this new feature set includes so here is a rundown of just some of the amazing things you will be able to do with it.
See Who The Top Sellers Are
Let's say we want to start selling shoes on eBay, but we would like to make sure there is a market for it. So we click onto Competitors in the analytics tool and run a query for shoes:
With just one quick search we were able to see that the shoe market is massive on eBay. We can see what the top sellers are selling and how many units and at what price they are selling them at over the last 30 days. Not only that, but we can see the exact item and pull it up on eBay:
You can draw inspiration from their photos, title, description, and policies to enhance your own listings. This will increase your chances of ranking higher and getting more sales!
See What's Hot on eBay
Let's take this a step further - suppose you aren't sure what to sell on eBay and are just looking for ideas, that's where the Hot Products tool comes in handy:
This report shows you the top selling products on eBay over the last 30 days. Right now it's telling us that screen protectors, shoes, and animal vacuums are trending well on eBay (animal vacuums...who would have guessed?).
But let's take this another step further - let's say I'm interested in selling a particular type of product but I'm not sure what specifically to start with. Let's say I want to sell phone cases, as we can see above they are a very popular item. So I narrow down the hot product search to phone cases:
There we go, the top selling phone cases from the last 30 days. It's quite evident to me from this report that iPhone XS cases are in very high demand. Let's go one step further and look at iPhone XS cases:
This looks fantastic, we can see there are a large number of styles and models selling really well on eBay. Now we just need to find one that looks promising, create a listing, and start selling!
Save and Track Your Data
We've also built in a save/track feature where you can save your market research. This lets you retain a history of everything you are considering selling and can revisit in the future:
Analyze Your Sales
We couldn't really call it an analytics platform if we didn't include the ability to analyze your own sales could we? inkFrog Analytics will collect information from your account and break down your sales into some interesting reports such as this one:
You can use this information to really refine your eBay business. In the above report we can see that second largest country to ship to is the UK for this account. That suggests it might be worthwhile to list more on eBay UK as only a fraction of listings are currently listed there compared to the US.
The analytics reports offer a range of reporting like this which you can use to drill into various elements of your business and perhaps spot new opportunities.
How Do You Get inkFrog Analytics?
inkFrog Analytics is our first ever addon feature. It is not included with any subscription, rather you have to add it to your account. But we are giving you a free 14 day trial of it on your account:

If you're not yet selling on Amazon, now may be a good time to start.
But Amazon has recently notified third-party sellers that it's reducing fees in a number of areas on its site, to incentivize third-party sellers to expand their Amazon offerings and add more inventory, which will increase selection for Amazon shoppers.
If it's been a while since you sold on Amazon, the new reductions in fees may be a good reason to return. (Image: © Ifeelstock / Dreamstime)
The changes are significant:
Most listing fees down to $0.30. For sellers in most Amazon categories, listing fees will come down to $0.30 from $1 (or from $2 in jewelry categories).
Baby, beauty, and health: Referral fees reduced to 8%. Referral fees for baby, beauty, and health items will come down to 8% for products costing less than $10, while products costing more than that will remain at 15%.
Furniture: Referral fees reduced to 10%. Furniture sales over $200 will see the referral fee for the portion of the sale beyond $200 reduced to 10% from 15%. The first $200 will still be assessed at 15%.
Jewelry: Referral fees also reduced to 5%. Jewelry sales over $250 will see the referral fee for the portion of the sale beyond $250 reduced to 5% from 20%. The first $250 will still be assessed at 20%.
Grocery and gourmet: Referral fees reduced to 8%. Referral fees for grocery and gourmet items will come down to 8% for products costing less than $15.00.
Take a look at those numbers again—fees are being reduced for affected sellers by double-digit percentages, and listing fees are once again low enough that many sellers will be able to enter the game even with lower sell-through rates.
Making Amazon Affordable Again
Amazon may be feeling a bit of heat both from a resurgent eBay marketplace and from an up-and-coming Walmart marketplace, and that's good for sellers.
These changes should help Amazon to accomplish exactly what they're hoping to accomplish—bringing independent and third-party sellers back around to the idea of selling on Amazon, and getting them to rush to list more Amazon inventory.
If you're an inkFrog user that has backed away from Amazon in favor of eBay or Shopify in recent months or years, now may be a good time to find your footing again on Amazon and generate some sales while fees are still low.

Amazon's fees have been creeping higher for years. Now, they're being slashed.

Spavacandles loves using inkFrog to manage their eBay business and also runs a Shopify store connected to eBay via inkFrog:
"I have been selling now for about 6 years and honestly I can't work without inkFrog. It is the only way I keep things in order and I love how I can make my pages so unique to match all my products. I am able to express myself this way and show the Beadmarks I create. I have had the most incredible people write me because they don't know that often they get Pandora beads in their order. They can be worth up to 50.00 so it is a huge surprise for them and fun for me. My feedback and ratings keep me going because I am ill but I don't want to slow down ( your harder to hit). I sell Bath & Body but I am Spavacandles, I even write a note to have each person smile because there isn't enough of that in the world. I will say it is getting hard for me to keep up my sales were 106% higher this year so I don't sleep much but I would not know what to do if I didn't have inkFrog to help me get it there
Every person who orders from me gets a hand made beakmarl and everyone loves to get gifts! I make every one special for every order I just love making combinations for a beautiful gift set I carry a variety of products, many discontinued. Sets are gift wrapped in a beautiful white bag and bow. Then they are Gift Bagged with a gift card to match the product. It makes the whole perfect gift. This wrap works for any occasion & event. Easy gifting"

Bobozes has been using inkFrog for over 6 months to sell thousands of media products on eBay France and create professional eBay listing templates for their business:
"I've started to sell on eBay in April 2001. I'm using inkFrog for 6 months now after trying different template and managing tools. As eBay has cancelled Turbo Lister the tool we used for years, it became very complicated for professional sellers to work with the eBay tools. inkFrog is great for creating great templates and sales management . Our store is dedicated to electronic reborns, LPs, EPs, Audio Tapes, Video Tapes, Laserdiscs, Vintage Hifi, video & photo Components."
