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:
This article was provided by Mollie Thick, Marketing Manager for BitBond.
For most eBay sellers, the biggest problem they have to worry about is whether or not their products are selling.
But you have a different problem.
Your eBay business has experienced consistently impressive conversion rates, and you've managed to turn a healthy profit.
You're beyond worrying about the effectiveness of your business strategy. Now, you’re ready to expand.
But expanding your eBay business is easier said than done, especially if you don’t have tons of liquid capital lying around.
Fortunately for you, building a bigger eBay business doesn’t have to be a nightmare - if you have the right tools and information available.
With that in mind, we've put together this article detailing the biggest obstacles you'll encounter, and how to overcome them.
By the time we're done here, you won't just know how to raise funds for your eBay business. You'll have a strong understanding of what it means to properly fund your own expansion.
Ready to get started? So are we.
Let's dive right in by tackling the first (and most important) piece of this puzzle: the current problem with most small business loans.
The Problem With Traditional Small Business Loans
For the sake of simplicity, we'll be putting small business loans in two categories: traditional loans and intuitive loans.
We'll discuss intuitive loans a bit later on, but for now, we'll just be focusing on traditional loans for your average lender. There are a few major issues that you’ll have to deal with if you’re looking for a typical lender to fund your eBay business expansion.
For starters, let's talk about the speed factor.
Being the talented eBay seller you are, I don't need to tell you how important speed is when it comes to managing your business.
Your ability to make important decisions quickly and efficiently is something your business relies on, and it's likely one of the reasons you fell in love with eBay as a platform.
The amount of freedom you're given, and the flexibility that comes with it, are essential to the continued success of your business.
Anything that threatened that would be an inconvenience at best and a liability at worst.
And that's the problem with typical small business loans. Even under ideal circumstances, your funds can take weeks to become available.
But that's just the tip of the iceberg. Typical lenders qualify your business the same way they would qualify you as an individual.
In fact, one of the reasons that small business owners struggle with getting loans is because of this outdated credit check system that traditional lenders use. Keep in mind, they're typically performing a hard check.
That's why these loans are usually only available to a small number of people. And let's not even get into the numerous hidden fees you'll have to deal with. Or the repeat visits to their offices because they insist on doing everything "face-to-face".
There's no getting around it: as an eBay business owner looking to expand their business, you're going to be in for a bad time with traditional lenders.
There's a small chance they'll say yes. If they reject you, it was likely because of something that had nothing to do with your actual business. Getting your actual funds can take weeks, and once you have them, you can expect a variety of hidden fees to pop up.
Not a particularly exciting deal, is it?
Understanding Bitbond and Instant Online Business Loans
Enter the world of intuitive loans. Where traditional lenders are inflexible and unreasonable, these instant online business loans have been built to innovate the way small business loans are handled.
More specifically, companies like Bitbond are much more interested in helping you make the most out of your business.
How do you know if you're eligible for funding from a company like Bitbond? Well, there are a few bare minimums to keep in mind.
- Your business has been in operation for at least 1 year or longer
- You're looking to repay your loan in 3-12 months
- You're looking for up to $25,000 in funding
Instant online business loans are exactly that: instant.
Instead of having to visit an office multiple times, you can complete your application for a Bitbond small business loan in as little as 10 minutes.
Yes, you read that correctly.
But the perks don’t stop there. When you work with Bitbond, you have access to international funding. In other words, you can get your small business loan anywhere in the world.
Still not convinced? Well, here's something that might change your mind - Bitbond actually offers truly instant funding to prime borrowers. You'll receive the funds in your bank account after one business day.
That's right: with Bitbond, you're one day away from the business growth you deserve.
Plus, you can rest assured knowing that you're in good hands, with Bitbond being Germany's first BaFin regulated blockchain company.
Bitbond doesn't bother with outdated credit checks. They qualify your business accounts using your sales history.
See what we mean? Intuitive. It just makes sense.
You can stop worrying about hidden fees cutting into your eBay business profits. Bitbond online business loans apply a single, simple fee. More importantly, that fee only applies once you're funded.
Bitbond cares just as much about transparency as it does about efficiency. You'll be provided with a full repayment schedule before you officially publish your loan. You'll know exactly how much your loan will cost, and when those payments are due.
With over 3,000 satisfied business owners in over 120 countries, is it any surprise that more and more eBay sellers are looking to companies like Bitbond to help expand their businesses?
Listen, we get it. Expanding your eBay business is a massive step, and something that you'll want to consider carefully before doing.
But if you're going to take the plunge into the world of small business loans and expand your eBay empire, instant online business lenders offer you some fantastic perks and tools.
Instead of waiting around for your funds, you can get them within a business day. You don't have to worry about some tedious credit check when your sales history speaks for itself.
You'll have access to worldwide coverage, no matter where you’d like to base your eBay business out of.
You can focus on a single, straightforward fee instead of worrying about hidden fees. And you can apply online, in just under 10 minutes.
Get the funding your business deserves without compromising the integrity of your eBay business in the process.

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"

Kathleen Walker is a senior citizen who has been selling on eBay for 10 years and has lots to say about inkFrog:
"Been selling on eBay more than 10 years and started out slow. Once I found inkFrog I was able keep and maintain a larger quantity of listings. My favorite feature of inkFrog is the library that keeps information on my items after I take them out because they are unavailable or not in season. When I'm ready to relist, I just pull it up and submit it, I don't need to reinvent the wheel. Before inkFrog I would need to reenter the specifics and description which was tedious and slow-going. Happy customer!"
