Poll: How many AW users sell on Etsy and/or Bonanza?  

I wrote (on the Introductions thread):

In reply to:

Thom wrote yesterday [Aug 8, 2011] that currently there is no plan to add support for Etsy or any other site. Phooey! When he says "currently", I always hold out hope he'll expand the program in the near future, but my more rational side says it's never gonna happen.


And Judy replied:

In reply to:

You know though if enough users express interest and requests for additional support you never know ... There just has to be enough interest to warrant the programming work.


Well, let's hear from our members..............

How many of you are selling on Etsy? How many on Bonanza?

Are you using AW "work-arounds" to write/manage/track your Etsy/Bonanza transactions?

Are you frustrated with the inability to click the globe button to visit your Etsy/Bonanza listing?

Do you wish Auction Wizard would add support for those two sites so you could do direct updates of your sold listings?

Sue

Bonanza..

Overstock.com auctions closed shop.. ugh! and I have moved quite a bit of my wholesale inventory over to Bonanza .. Bonanza support would be so nice. I do understand that integrating with ruby on rails is a bit of a challenge

HI

me too!

I mean I love the CSV auction lot export. Totally cool and can be easily converted into a site specific CSV file.. But being able to actually integrate like we can with eBay,, wow would be the word

I'd like to see Etsy integration too, just started looking at Bonanza but will probably start using it as well.

HI

Bonanza allows a CSV File upload for listing AW2000 csv file export makes it pretty easy.

you can even add properly formatted attributes in the description field and they will upload to Bonanza in the CSV file and show up in Search optimize for google product.. The only thing in the CSV file that is a hitch is the image url. Unless you grap each image that AW2K uploads to your web space, you have to upload the images to each listing after uploading the CSV file.

But works pretty easy. Of course you can import your eBay listings to Bonanza. And Bonanza now imports Etsy listings too.

Re: Poll: How many AW users sell on Etsy and/or Bonanza? new [re: bluepennylady]  

I list everything on ebay and then import to Bonanza which works pretty well.

However, I sell little dolls and often get an order on Bonanza for several,10-12. Then making an invoice is tedious. If I make the same sale on ebay, of course, AW is a thing of beauty for creating the invoice.

Would love to see AW interface with Bonanza and Etsy!

Cheers
Barbara

I have a store on Bonanza and I am just starting to think about listing on Etsy. Etsy is such a wonderful site for homemade items and I sure hope that vintage items do as well. Would be great to have AW2000 do both sites.

Re: Poll: How many AW users sell on Etsy and/or Bonanza? new [re: auctions1329]  

HI

Etsy allows populating using a CSV file too. So the auction lot records can be exported from AW2000 into a CSV. then the headers formatted to import into Etsy.


Create a profile in Aw2000 for Etsy. change those auction lot records to the Etsy profile and move all those Auction lots manually to Online.
When something sells, change auction lot status to offline and add to the buyer's invoice manually.

Easy peasy..

But It would be nice if Aw2000 was integrated

Hi

If there isn't going to be full integration, the ability to create customizable URL fields on an auction lot would be super.. So if you click the blue world on an Auction lot it would direct to the listing on the site. That way you can "see" the listing without having to go to the site, log in blah blah blah.. My staff would love to be able to see the listing page like they can on eBay.

Re: Poll: How many AW users sell on Etsy and/or Bonanza? new [re: bluepennylady]  

Just a me too!

What I generally do to find the Etsy lot online is use Google. Enter the item ID number and the word Etsy, and the result will almost always show a link to your listing page. Fastest way I know of. But it would be very cool if AW could add support for Judy's idea, so the blue-globe icon worked for unsupported sites.

And just wanted to say it's me, Sue. I re-registered. Some old sleeping-cat photo.

Re: Poll: How many AW users sell on Etsy and/or Bonanza? new [re: tictictic_OnEbay]  

Well everyone, I think its time to Beg, grovel, plead, and even bribe Thom to help all of us look at other sites. With the *reduced* (HAHAHAHAHAHA) fees, the other sites are really looking to be far more attractive. I have been a PROUD user of his software for over 200,000 listings, and I for one who like to resurrect this request.
Thom Do you think you could crunch some numbers to see what you would have to get for another module for the other sites? Say a bonanza module would be $X.XX, an esty site would be$X.XX or the XYZ site would be this?
eBay truly fails to realize that without sellers, there will be no buyers, and with no buyers there will be no FVF, and no FVF means a continued downward spiral. Maybe they are going the way of Blockbuster Video...Who knows..
Maybe but out a blanket email to see if there is interest to any/all that use the software. Im shotgunning this as eBay and Paypal have gotten enough of my money, and this is my tipping point.
Thanks for the read!

Re: Poll: How many AW users sell on Etsy and/or Bonanza? new [re: earl]  

It's been 18 months since I posted that "Poll." I list almost nothing on ebay now; I have hundreds of things on Etsy. I'm so used to the tedious process of logging an Etsy sale into my AW database, I forget how much faster that process is when it's a site supported by AW.

Ok, I'll beg..........Thom, P L E E E Z E add Etsy and Bonanza.

There are programs out there that do support Etsy. I've tried and discarded each one. They are too lightweight or not customizable enough, some don't store your data on your own hard drive.........all pale in comparison to AW2k.

In connection with Etsy, I'm not sure the site makes their API available to programmers yet, so perhaps we need to be begging the various site administrators to open up their source codes (or whatever the terminology should be).

Re: Poll: How many AW users sell on Etsy and/or Bonanza? new [re: Same_Old_Sue]  

Don't know about Bonanza, but Etsy is really the only other site besides Ebay and Amazon that has real traction.

They also have a section for developers using their API:

https://www.etsy.com/developers/

Maybe Thom doesn't realize just how big Etsy is.

On Average Etsy -

Sells around $100 million of items per month
Lists around 2-3 million items per month
Signs up over 1 million new members each month
Receives over 1 Billion page views each month

and if Thom is wondering if he'd have a growing community of customers, he might note that Etsy is growing at around 60% per year.

Re: Poll: How many AW users sell on Etsy and/or Bonanza? new [re: Tradeguy]  

Hi

I would like to have Bonanza and Amazon too. At least be able to pull in orders directly from Amazon. Manually adding the names/addresses from Amazon is a pain. Takes several steps.

Bonanza is pretty easy because the names come in on the PP payment receipt. But still have to manually upload tracking to each sold transaction which can be a pain.

I know many sellers are moving to Etsy.

Never know what AW2K might consider. Doesn't hurt to ask

Re: Poll: How many AW users sell on Etsy and/or Bonanza? new [re: donbaker55]  

HI

Amazon will send a CSV file of all orders but the name and addresses have to be concatunated so the the info is in one cell. Otherwise it is still copy/paste buyer name/address into AW2000.

we are using shipworks now because the manual uploading tracking to Amazon is too difficult and time consuming. Not to mention that Endicia has become unreliable in uploading tracking to eBay.
