After spending hours after already listing on Ebay crossposting to FB, I finally decided to try out listperfectly for a month. I got 120 items listed in an hour, and had a sale and another message of interest in that hour- KICK BUTT. HOWEVER, I started getting an error message that basically says “this could be a technical error we may are working on”
That being said, less than a minute a post is phenomenal. Listperfectly isn’t perfect, but it definitely could be worth keeping around since it only takes 2 $25 sales to pay for it.

Update: Apparently you can only put 150 listings a day. Well, that’s a quick crash to my productivity. It’s a facebook issue, not a listperfectly issue.

You listed 120 in AN HOUR? Is that listing from scratch, or do you mean crossposting? I’m obviously misunderstanding, because my brain just exploded from that number.

Crossposting! LOL. So I already have my listings on Ebay, and I’m crossposting the listing to Facebook. It takes me about 30 seconds per listing to crosspost using ListPerfectly. My current issue is that I’m maxing out FB daily listing limit, the software is great. So, I used to crosspost by hand and would only get 50 listings a week on fb and ebay, but now I can list between 100-150 items in about an hour (I crashed it today at 100, waiting to see if FB will let me list more in an hour or so) So now I can list 50 items a week on Ebay, imeadiately crosspost it in like 20ish minutes on fb, and then repost my listings after a month. FB lets you renew listings 5 times, once a week, until the listing essentially stops being able to pull up in the top of the search engine. Using listperfectly, I’d like to repost my entire store once a month (about 800 items currently). So, it should take me about 5 hours a month to do so. I was spending more than that just crossposting my regular listings that i put up on ebay this week. Now I’ll have 800 listings available at any time on FB versus the like max 200 I could do a month, that after a month would disappear in search.
I’m actually looking at another store to start posting on through List Perfectly. I have the time to crosspost using it, just looking for the right outlet.

Does list perfectly manage the listings after created? Let’s say you sell something on one platform – does it cancel the listings on all other platforms?

@Jay, I sell about 1 or 2 items a week currently, but those numbers are based off of only having about 200 listings on the site, and most of them were “dead” aka over 5 weeks old and not renewable. If I can get my entire stock over there in the same time it takes me to crosspost 100 items, and they are all fresh listings all the time, I think my sales will rise. I’ve had it for 2 days and have already made a sale on something that wasn’t there beforehand, so we’ll see where I end up at the end of the month.
@Retro I don’t think it does, it’s specifically for crossposting. Currently I have about 5-10 sales a week, so it’s easier for me to manage them. Facebook and Ebay both have search functions so it only takes me about a minute or two to pull a listing from another site after it sold.

Update: As of this moment I’ve now sold 5 items that weren’t previously listed on FB through Listperfectly in about 2 days. I have about 300 listings up on FB, so I have another 500 or more to go. All were lower dollar sales, but it’s about $100 right now, so I’ve at least doubled my money from what I’ve put so far.

I don’t use listing software, but, from what I’ve read here and what Retro asked about, there can be an issue if the same item sells on both platforms within minutes of each other.
Let’s say someone is looking for two of an item and sees one on Facebook and another on eBay. So, in the middle of the night when they can’t get to sleep, they go buy one and then the other not realizing that they are both the same thing. Now you have to cancel one. Most likely, you should cancel the one sold on Facebook because they probably won’t ding you, but eBay will.
Some listing software has a built in function that will cancel the listing on one platform when it sells elsewhere. You should look into whether List Perfectly has it, and, if not, just have a process for the rare time when it occurs.

Yes, I do see the problem of double ordering. However, I’d have that problem whether I was independently crossposting or using a software. It’s just a risk that I take on. Luckily my main two places are Ebay and Facebook, and FB has pretty lax cancellation policies.
