inkFrog as an Alternative to Auctiva

inkFrog and Auctiva are two different eBay listing programs available on the market and we believe you should be fully informed on what each platform offers. We did the homework for you and put together a list of the top features and which each service offers. In this review of Auctiva we line up their features with ours so you can clearly see which service is more suitable for your business needs.

Here is a summary and you can find a detailed comparison of all features below:

  • Pricing: As you can see below, Auctiva is significantly lower cost than inkFrog, by approximately 50% on all pricing.
  • Account Connections: inkFrog outperforms Auctiva in terms of how many eBay accounts you can link (1 vs Unlimited) and furthermore it can connect to your Amazon account, BigCommerce store, and Shopify store and keep all your inventory synchronized to eBay.   Additionally, inkFrog can import your inventory via CSV file, Auctiva cannot.
  • eBay Tools: inkFrog allows you to store an unlimited amount of product photos (Auctiva does not) and offers a bulk listing editor which Auctiva does not.  Furthermore, inkFrog offers both Staff Accounts and Print Templates - neither of which are offered by Auctiva.
  • eBay Listing Templates: Both inkFrog and Auctiva offer professional eBay listing templates for their members, however inkFrog also gives you the ability to create your own templates and will even custom design an eBay listing template exclusively for you.
  • Support: Both companies offer fantastic support by email/ticket, live chat, and online training. However inkFrog pulls into the lead by offering one-on-one training and we have recently started offering phone support during standard business hours.  Additionally, inkFrog offers one-on-one onboarding calls to help you setup your business and ensure it's working exactly as you need.

 

As you can see, Auctiva does make a much cheaper alternative to inkFrog but with significantly reduced features. You can see a detailed comparison matrix below.
