#28400 I just wanted to say that i am loving SixBit (i am new to it)

Posted by a person on 30 April 2016 - 12:00 AM

I just felt like sharing that i am loving sixbit. i have literally searched 15 to 20 different programs in the last month and tried all the trials of them. But i found that i like sixbit the best.


I run my ebay business by myself and started in my house dropshipping at the end of October 2015. I grew so quickly that I started putting my profit from dropshipping immediately into buying merchandise and stocking it to get better prices and control. Basically 2 months ago i grew too big for the house and got a little hobby shop now (main selling is online though of course). so i kept putting the money back in to grow my product line and grew even more and more. I am not big but for one person i found my time completely taken up just handling the business, leaving me no more time to research new products to add and grow more. 


That is when i started a month ago looking at so many different and better programs than i had used previously to run the business. Most were so slow or had some great features at the expense of others or were just too plain complicated. And so i tried Sixbit


I found sixbit to be rather filled with features but for me it seamed pretty intuitive. I spent like two weeks setting it up with inventory, suppliers, cost checking everything, adding endicia to it. I still had some troubles but support tickets and u guys on the forum helped. I am still learning this program. But i have to say i actually already have a lot of my time back. so i am so happy with sixbit, its speed, features, i love seeing so much information at a glance.


Anyways, i am halfway through with my enterprise trial, and i have decided that i have found that sixbit will be the program i will stay with. I just wanted to share that and thank everyone for the help: support and forum memebers.




#27423 Amazon - Subscription Fee Changes

Posted by nabachandar on 01 March 2016 - 03:22 PM

John, For those users currently on the Enteprise edition jumping to Enterprise Duo is not a huge jump. For those that are currently on Small Business Edition, the jump to Enterprise Duo is significantly higher. Is there any chance you would consider having Small Business Edition DUO available for $69.99? Not everyone needs or cares for the options offered in Enterprise but selling on Amazon would be nice. For a small operation every penny matters especially with the fact that Amazon has their own monthly fees, as well as fees to purchase UPC codes etc... Regardless I fully respect your decision as the business owner as I am sure you have plenty of overhead etc... to account for but wanted to reach out to see if this is something you might consider to help those with smaller operations that don't require the features offered by enterprise edition other than the ability to sell on Amazon.

#25361 Yay Sixbit 2.0! Just revised 2300 items in one hit!

Posted by Stimpy on 04 August 2015 - 05:25 AM

Sixbit 1.x would always crash on me when revising large numbers of items, Sixbit 2.x just revised 2300 items without a hitch.


So happy I just have to tell someone...

#15375 Discount Issue

Posted by Clark on 02 January 2014 - 03:55 PM

I wish that SixBit had support for markdown support. The eBay implementation is not very practical for anyone with more than a thousand or so listings to use. Ideally, the listings could be selected in SixBit, the markdown amount and period selected and the transaction could be passed to eBay through the API.



#4604 These Guys Rule!

Posted by gregm on 30 June 2011 - 10:12 AM

Hello Sixbit family. I am posting under feature requests because I believe this is what sets Sixbit apart from everyone else. I wanted to post this unbiased opinion because I believe Sixbit is going to rise above ALL other platforms over time and I want to be the one to call it before it happens :P A little about me - My name is Greg and I have sold online for several years but am just really taking off with the assistance of a friend I met online. While I have sold over a million dollars on the eBay marketplace my goal is to do that in a years time across multiple channels. That kind of goal takes you in search of automation and very intuitive software. Since I began I have tested Channel Advisor, Kyozou, Vendio, Zoovy, Inkfrog and Auctiva. There are features in each software that I like though each has their pitfalls. Apart from the usual pitfalls, the cost is such that it really is difficult to get going and if you're not careful they will sink you before you swim.

A couple of weeks ago I called the number on the Sixbit website and to my surprise a person answered, in fact it was John Slocum, President of Sixbit. I know, right? We had a nice conversation and he answered a lot of questions. I decided to test the software. I loved most things about it but it lacked one feature that will propel us above our competition. I figured it wouldn't work so I canceled the subscription. It was back to the drawing board and I was bummed because I loved everything about Sixbit. Over the next couple weeks I pursued my search online and came upon the community here at Sixbit. I found that people were making requests of feature options and the coders at Sixbit were actually listening and implementing, something I've NEVER seen in my life. Most software firms have a feature request option but it appears as if no one ever looks at them. I saw that at Sixbit it was just the opposite. That is what makes Sixbit powerful and poised for explosive growth.

I did some more research online and it seemed my feature that I needed to implement was very feasible. So I phoned Sixbit and spoke with a gentleman by the name of Steve. Steve listened to my idea intently and said it sounds like something they will be able to implement. My online competition is in deep deep trouble :D The reason for automation is to save time so that you can focus on making money by listing more items for sale. You're not making money if you're doing anything else. Sixbit offers a tool chest full of robust options. I have found that many of the other software programs offer a plethora of features though many are useless when it comes down to it. At Sixbit they obviously listen to their subscribers and therefore offer features that really make a difference. A coding team doesn't necessarily know which features are the most sought after, but the sellers - like all of you - who are out in the trenches day in and day out banging out sales know exactly what you need. Sorry for the long winded post but I wanted to drive home the fact that no one out there is doing what Sixbit is and we are very fortunate to be able to ride on their coat tails as they explode in the upcoming years. Not to mention Amazon is on their roster of marketplaces! Here's to the inevitable success of Sixbit! B)

I too can't wait to see Etsy sales importing into SB.....I hate all the jumping back and forth....

#28485 Discussion regarding the changing of prices in the different grids

Posted by Bob V. on 03 May 2016 - 08:07 PM

Correct.   The easiest way if you make changes under Create Items is to select all the items you changed, then GoTo / Running Listings For Selected Items.  Then click on Revise / Send Revisions To Site for those items. 

#27502 Amazon - Subscription Fee Changes

Posted by Bettys Bargain Bin on 04 March 2016 - 09:08 PM

I am entitled to my opinion.


I started selling on Amazon two years before sixbit rolled out this public beta with amazon support. I put the time into building templates so i could get my items on there to sell. I personally input thousands of amazon orders manually into sixbit, because at the time i couldn't afford the tools that would automate it. And that was fine, because my time was not worth that much back then.


When the situation changed, I invested the money into an ERP and had an application custom built to interface with Amazon, our ecommerce website, and sixbit to automate order flow. Without whining about it.



I am terribly sorry, should I be kissing your behind?  Please, allow me to bow in the presence of thy greatness.


As you stated, it is your opinion.  Everyone is entitled to their opinion and to respect.  Seems that you are a bit lacking, however, in this department when someone else expresses THEIR opinion.

Custom Fields are a much welcome improvement,thank you. The Ability to Rename and Reorder Customs fields from the Manage Custom Fields Window will add greater functionality.




#25070 Set Up and Print itemized 2014 total sales

Posted by Bob V. on 04 July 2015 - 09:11 PM

My biggest disappointment with Release 2 is that they didn't do anything about all the problems and difficulties cause by the way they handle combined orders.  I really had hoped they would give us the option of dealing with sold items without respect to the orders containing them.

#24116 Quick Idea - Hot Keys in Item Edit Window

Posted by butlerautorecycling on 09 April 2015 - 09:22 AM

Here is an idea, on the item edit window can we add hot keys?


For example ctrl+right arrow goes to next item or ctrl+F goes to fixed price or ctrl+C goes to condition description.


A simple change like this would increase my productivity two fold if I can get away from using the mouse.



Thanks for the consideration,

Mike Misky

#23198 User Visibility into the status of Feature Requests!

Posted by ASMC Industrial on 06 January 2015 - 08:54 PM

+1. This is really how this is supposed to be handled.


I would add another "tag line" however, which I think a fair number of posts here would fall under: "Are you f*^&ing kidding me???!"


Go ahead and hate me.

#21531 Bulk Edit Removed?

Posted by Bob V. on 29 September 2014 - 04:19 PM

John, perhaps you have valid technical reasons for doing it, but there's no excuse for removing a productivity enhancing feature without announcing it or explaining the reasons.  Application users don't like surprises, particularly when they negatively affect their workflow.  Developers only hurt themselves by being secretive.

#18626 Can Not Revise Any Listing

Posted by GTi on 30 April 2014 - 08:28 AM

I had same issues with import from blackthorne...website and video said it would be a peachy smooth import...WRONG...didnt not work and all those listings are a mess....your gonna have to fix them 1 by 1 as i found... read below as i am sure the problems im having with car parts must spill over to other areas of sixbit since they are linked.


Just wait, its gets even more fun as you keep using six bit....not even sure what I am paying for...to list and sell on eBay or to be a lab rat so that sixbit staff can figure out how to actually make it work. You will find that nothing works the way it supposed to. I sell car parts well when my listings renewed via reallocation plan, they all dropped the compatibility from the listing and I never knew about it until I started wondering why my sales were down and realized search results are down because of the dropped comp sets. So the natural thing I would is find those listings and simply reselect comp set and click revise in bulk...right? WRONG!!!!! Because when I tried to find the comp sets which were set to manual in each listing nothing came in search.....so now the backup plan is to manually find those listings...so i did then im thinking i just select in bulk and reselect comp set and click revise right? WRONG!!!! Did that and the little window came up and said all the listings were revised successfully! YEAPPY FINALY FIXED AND I CAN GO BACK TO MAKING NEW LISTINGS....WRONG!!!! Went to live listings and guess what the comp sets did not upload, revise failed.....OK Gene doesn’t panic...I’m sure there must be a 3rd back up plan!!!!! Thinking, thinking....ok maybe if I choose those listings and add some item specifics to them which will help with search....ok good idea let’s do that....ok items selected in bulk, click batch edit, select item specifics and fill in click revise....sweet its working cause the little window sais items revised successfully....oh thank god it’s only been a half a day since I have been trying to fix 10 listings....let’s check to make sure...open listings....OH BOY YOU THINKG THE ITEM SPECS WOULD BE THERE....WRONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ALL FIELDS STILL BLANK!!!! REVISE FAILED......ok...ok now it’s time to panic because nothing is working....its only 10 items...maybe if I go 1 by 1 and fix them....ok done, revise....let’s check to be sure..there is no way this would not fix them.....I mean I did them 1 by 1 manually so they must be fixed....WRONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Go listings to find only some were fixed and 3 out of 10 did not revise...had to revise them several times each until the info finally stuck.......but guess what.....30 days later when they renewed they dropped the info again.....what’s worse I reported these issues and did remote sessions with SixBit staff 6 months ago....then 3 months ago...then again 2 months ago..Have sent them dozens of emails with images and screen shots and guess what I get...."we are working on it or we cannot duplicate the problem on our end". The worst part is all these were created in sixbit from brand new and now since this has been going on for months my entire inventory is a freaking nightmare of a mess....there is no help...I have been trying to fix each item 1 at a time but realize its only for 30 days until it relists...my family wonders why they never see me anymore since I’m locked to my office and never leave my desk ...I have also started drinking heavily and beating my head into the desk in hopes maybe that will fix it. But here is some good news.....to the people who are asking sixbit to fix profit and loss reports, shipping labels or to add little check boxes to the listing screen...don’t worry your requests are being fulfilled since I guess there easy...also to people selling coins and paper money your requests will also be handled since I think John Slocum personally sells them. For all you car parts guys out there just letting you know you will have to check each listing 1 by 1 every time you list new or they relist...and for those guys who have 1,000 or more listings....may God have mercy on your soul! I have not created any new listings for almost 1 month now as I have been researching, reading and trying to come up with ways to make the system work for me as all replies from six bit support have stopped. They were speedy at responding to my support requests as everyone praises them for but they have not actually fixed any of the problems. At least blackthorne was still working fine for me even though tech support was not available anymore.

#16550 Would Love To Be Able To Re-Order The Item Specifics That I've Created

Posted by sylviaslistings on 17 February 2014 - 03:46 PM

It would be so helpful if I could re-order these so I could change the order in which they appear in my templates. eBay has recently added four more in their "recommended" list, some of which I already had created in my own list a year ago. Would like to push those duplicates down to the bottom so I didn't have to tab through the redundant fields. Thanks for considering! Sylvia

Posted by markysmark on 05 January 2014 - 10:17 PM

Please relocate "lot" next to Quantity to list - "Lot" has no point being in Titles and Description module.    You set quantity and then items per lot, they should be right next to each other.

#13384 Come To Sixbit........posted In Blackthorne

Posted by Global Mart Plus on 28 October 2013 - 02:25 PM

Hi All,


I just posted a "Come to SB" Post on the Blackthorne Boards.


If any of you can or want to jump in and add to the post that would be great, for all of us.


Most of the post is SB's own "What every Blackthorne user should know about Sixbit".


But it would still be nice to see other SB supporters chiming in on the post.


We should all want these users to come to SB.





#12869 Thank You For The Grid Upgrade!

Posted by Sally on 20 September 2013 - 12:02 PM

I often wait a couple days to install a beta, but when I saw 1.03.112 upgraded the grid, I had to install immediately. I've just played with them a smidgen, but this covers one of my biggest SixBit feature wishes! Off to play...
