?

Should our app be web-based, a desktop app or both?

    Just a bit of market research...

    Hopefully will help you soon

    We are creating a product that should ease the buying process on eBay.

    Could you help us by commenting on what eBay lacks or what can be done to improve/ease the buying process (whether it be Win-by-bid or Buy-it-now), or could you suggest a tool for helping searching for a product or new products.

    Also should our app be web-based a desktop app or both?

    it should be based on both, but web-based most importantly.. if it's like a desktop widget it needs to rely on the internet. A pure desktop based app isnt needed imo

    Human Editors.
    Ebay is full of garbage.
    They also sent me a bill for general listings to the tune of $512.
    I didn't sell one thing or use any special marketing tools from the site. $512.
    Makes no sense and no support from service except pay the bill.
    I don't like E-Bay

    I dunno, I am in a bit of a mood with ebay at the moment, I bought and payed for something two weeks ago, it was meant to be posted first class on the day after the sale, and it was posted yesterday... so yeah, not too good... But overall, I have to admit I think ebay is pretty much the business...

    I didn't even know that was possible to hack an e-bay account. Thanks for the tip.

    Well thanks for your input, was thinking about creating an auto sniping tool...

    But I am not allowed to create one of these using the API, so I need to help in the buying of eBay items etc.
