WorldLister Brings New Light to eBay Users as Blackthorne Fades Out

Free Alternative to Blackthorne Adds New Features, Helps Thousands of Sellers Speed Listing Times, Increase Sales, Reduce Returns

NAPLES, FL--(Marketwired - Mar 12, 2014) - eBay sellers, have no fear! While eBay discontinues the online listing tool Blackthorne, which sellers relied on to manage, edit, and upload their listings in bulk, WorldLister, the first and only full-feature mobile selling solution, has added even more features that not only make the application the best and only free alternative to Blackthorne and other listing services (for a comparison chart, click here), but also makes listing easier and more efficient than ever. Blackthorne users, or any eBay sellers, can seamlessly migrate all their eBay listings into the WorldLister app with one click of a button. The seller's old eBay listings get automatically imported and organized within Active, Sold and Unsold listings folders.

WorldLister, the free Web-based app, which lets users create complete, professional, multimedia-rich listings in a fraction of the time from a smartphone, tablet or desktop, has gained thousands of users since its beta launch in December. Listening to their feedback, the WorldLister team has added robust new features that have made online selling simpler, faster, and more efficient for eBay users and brand new online sellers alike.

Finally, the advantages of the cloud come to eBay sellers: saving drafts of listings for later

The application offers a draft feature that automatically saves the listing process every step of the way. Users don't have to worry about losing Internet connection or navigating away from the listing; they can resume the listing at a later time -- even from a different device. Similarly, the Pending Listing feature lets users pre-load listings and upload them to eBay in bulk at a later time.

Analytics that will break down the right numbers for sellers

Along with the first-ever mobile selling features are analytics that beautifully display an overview of sales statistics and helpful graphs and charts for optimizing selling strategies on the go.

Improved Clothing Lister that reduces average rate of returns from 30 percent to 3 percent

Thousands of items have been listed using the application helping the development team fine-tune their Clothing Lister algorithm. The unique feature has shown to reduce clothing returns from an average 30 percent to only three percent. This saves sellers money, time and the headache of possible negative feedback.

Take the guesswork out of becoming (and staying) an eBay PowerSeller

A seller dashboard called "My eBay" is WorldLister's solution to keeping users on track with their eBay tasks and status. Users have a visual overview of their account standing, along with a five-step guide on how to achieve PowerSeller status.

"As an eBay seller myself, I'm familiar with all the frustrations facing sellers and how big a deal the Blackthorne Blackout is to eBay users," said Bryan Harmon, CEO of WorldLister. "That's why I'm so passionate about our mission, and proud that we've created the perfect solution, not only to this Blackthorne problem that eBay sellers are facing, but to online selling in general. We've finally made online selling fully mobile to fit today's mobile world and attract new sellers."
