    OP- no I haven't used it yet, I always assume with ebay that it takes them a while to iron out the worst of the glitches. I have been directed to it though on occasions and get out as quickly as I can.
    I'm the Board Guide for the Ebay Board , Charities Board , Dosh & Disability , Up Your Income and the Local MoneySaving-England board which means I'm a volunteer to help the boards run smoothly, and I can move posts there. However, do remember, board guides don't read every post. If you spot an illegal or inappropriate post then please report it to forumteam@moneysavingexpert.com (it's not part of my role to deal with this).

    I use it and it is much better than the normal My Ebay. It is easier to see what is going on. It also allows you to go straight into paid orders ready to dispatch with one click. You can also set up templates for listing. It does seem to be working okay. Have been using it for a few weeks now and have not had any glitches or problems.

    The sales info is a bit patronising though. "Looks like sales are down 5% this month, lets try and work on that"

    Can't wait to try it, does it go on with tips an advice..."Maybe, you know, have you thought about cutting down on the Scotch and joining a gym?"

    I'm using it. I can't see any reason why you wouldn't use it. Everything seems stable and there is a lot more information than the old "My Ebay" page. A lot of links are now just one click rather than going through multiple pages as before (the block bidders page is an example I can think of).

    You just need to get used to where everything is on the page.

    IMO it's just a way to make things more simple for mobile users. I'm trying it on the private account and not going near it on the business account.


    One thing that really winds me up is that carp bar chart that tells me what my sales are not.


    Why does a sale of an item to the USA for £8 become a sale of £17.50?? Because eBay include the separate post/packing charge of course.


    I have tried the one page "sell your item" form, and I'll stick with turbo lister because it's quicker...

    I'll stick with TL for as long as I can, hopefully eBay will sort something out or I'll have to use a 3rd party. I truly fail to understand that eBay are ignoring the need for an off line piece of listing software.


    If there is one thing I am certain about it's that I'm not trusting eBay with my data.
