    I'm not very good at eBay, haven't really used it recently, but I know the last time I did it required html code to make a cool auction. I have a bunch of stuff to sell and was hoping to do it without having to spend too much time on it.

    I heard of iSale a long time ago and it seemed like a cool program. I was checking it out today and looks like its been advanced quite a bit. Any word on this? Or can I get by just fine without a program?

    I used a trial of it a few months back. I thought it made the listing look nice, but I wasn't too impressed overall. I especially had a difficult time putting up decent sized pictures of the item I was selling. The template was also difficult to customize. That's about all I can remember, sorry. Basically, I tried it on one listing, didn't like it, and haven't used it since.

    Look into "Garage Sale" -- my husband uses that tl list.

    I stopped using eBay about a year ago, but I found Garage Sale to be much better than iSale at that time..
    But like i said, haven't used either for over a year, so would be best to try them both out...

    I have used ebay's TurboLister for this. It works very well.

    It is freeware from ebay, but sadly Windows only. I use it under VMware, but I expect you could get it to work under DarWine.

    I actually found Turbolister better for my needs than the demo of garage sale which I tried.

    I just want to throw in another vote for GarageSale 5 myself. Nice selection of templates and pretty straight forward to use.

    Thanks for the replies. Sounds like Garage Sale has a better rapport with forum.

    On a different note, any other tactics to sell unwanted items? Seems like eBay gets the best price due to the large audience.

    Craigslist will be free to list, but a more limited audience. Better for big, bulky stuff, though.

    Otherwise, eBay is probably your only choice.

    Garagesale gets my vote, it's not perfect but it makes the job a lot easier than ebay's own listing system. At £25 it was worth the risk and since owning it my listings have been flying out the door...
