    Hi guys

    So I sell a lot of car parts from breaking and have manually listed each using the android app for a while. Which is great as I can take photos there and then with my phone and list straight away.... but I have to enter postage cost and method. Have to input repetitive details in listing each time, like the full spec of the car it's from etc.

    Would like to have a nice template. A std postage option pre selected. And the template unique to the car so all the important details is pre written... so then all I do is write a title...write a short description thats put in the template...Write the price...Take the pics and upload.


    I'm wondering what software you would recommend as from all ive seen none have an app for Android... And I can't see if being easier if I have to use a website on the phone to do it...

    Thanks

    I have standard templates but use mine from laptop, not the app.
    I can also use 'sell similar' on the website where many of the details will be the same.

    Easier to list on a PC than on phone. Pretty sure you can setup templates as well.

    Yes, just use a laptop or desktop is easier and you can template listings as required for reuse.

    A laptop isn't a good option for me.
    My only camera is my phone camera which is pretty decent but my laptop takes a lifetime to load and display the photos

    Why not get a new one? If you sell a lot online making eBay better to use must be worth the cost?

    Could try the desktop view on mobile phone but it won't be a great experience

    Cheap digital cameras these days, laptops capable of accessing ebay are often cheaper than mobile phones.
    Will speed up your listing considerably compared to the app.

    Ok I guess I'm not gonna find a solution I'm looking for and hours of searching found nothing. I might just format my current pc and have today bought a dirt cheap 12MP digital camera.

    So if I'm gonna go down the laptop route I guess what I would be looking for is an option to create listings from either a single page or even better a spreadsheet type layout where I can enter a title description, attach photos and a price and the system then creates the listing using a selected template and creates the eBay listing.

    What are you guys using for this?

    Using? Mostly an existing listing we have already done.
    99 percent of the time the postage settings, advertising etc are going to be the same as the template listing.
