Can Sixbit Be Used On Amazon Or Other Sites Besides Ebay?
Posted 05 February 2011 - 12:31 PM
We are planning to support other sites as time allows. According to the current priorities, support for Bidstart.com and Etsy.com will be added first.
I am so excited! I have stopped any serious selling on eBay and preparing to start selling on Etsy.com. This appears to be the software I have been trying to find. I am also selling on Ruby Plaza, Amazon and soon Bonanzle. Hope I will be able to use it on these eventually. Thanks for having a great product!

I use Description Wrappers designed to be used with each of the sites. Bonanza is pretty similar to eBay, with embedded images and decent html support. Yahoo Groups are tricky - some allow embedded images and limited html, some are text only. So I've created a 'slimmed down' Desc Wrapper for those posts - it includes a single embedded image just after the heading, and then image links for the rest of the images. For Craigslist, the Desc Wrapper is very simple, since there's limited html allowed (in my experience - I'm not a big CL seller yet), and then I also include the image links as well, but for a different reason. The CL post routine will snag the images from my PC... but I need to know which ones I want to use, so those links at the end tell me which files to attach thru the CL post tool.
To post, I simply Preview the Item, then right-click on the Preview and select View Source from the selection pop-up. I highlight what I want (varies by site) and copy/paste to either the site (Bonanza/Craigslist) or into an email template (Yahoo Groups). If I need to do something about the images (Craigslist), I keep the Preview open while finishing up that. When I'm done, I move the Item to the proper Item Folder (Bonanza, Yahoo, Craigslist) so I know I've posted it.
Sales are handled thru the manual sales feature, with the site data (which site, Listing or Reference info, etc) kept in the notes field.
It works. If I were selling at my old eBay level (300-350 sales a month, 1000+ postings a month), I'd not be a happy camper. But I can handle it for my current volume... and keep "politely inquiring" of John and crew as to when they are going to make me a 'respectable seller' on those sites.
BTW: This is the same thing I had to do with BT.... only that software was not going to be allowed to go multi-venue. So even if I have to wait a bit, I'm much happier over here!

I am hoping that I've finally found what I need in this software. Thanks to a long time BT user, I found my way over here - the community alone for the two tools is a breath of fresh air!

I was hopeful that Amazon would be in place and operational well before 4th quarter. But I'm grateful for an honest answer - those are hard for a customer to find when talking with ecommerce software folks. Much appreciated!

I haven't personally checked, but I did do a manual (non-eBay) sale just the other day, and I found the process to be quite easy.
I selected the Item I had sold, then right-clicked to get the context menu, from which I selected Create Order.
In the Order window, I used the mouse-over (placing the mouse on an icon will display the text name or function of the icon) to find the button for creating a new Buyer record, which was easy, and then changed the Item Price by simply clicking on it and editing it. I also left the shipping charge at zero, as this was a "free" shipping sale. After checking and editing/changing any of the other fields that required it (weight, dimensions, carrier, etc), I was ready to save the order and move on.
I would not be at all surprised to find that the User Guide already contains instructions for creating manual orders. John's good at keeping things like that up-to-date.

We're planning on integrating with Etsy and bidStart in the first half of the year and working on Amazon later in the year. We'll work fast!
Hi John - still loving SixBit... and wondering if there might be any updates on Amazon integration. Is it moving in that direction this year, or? Just want to stay in the loop. I'm in serious need of a way to track Amazon sales and to pull reports for sales tax reporting purposes.
