      Hey Tommy,

      Thanks for reaching out! Ecomdash supports all eBay inventory, listing and order management. We do not currently integrate with the in-marketplace messaging from buyers to sellers to manage the communications. You can use the ecomdash email marketing to send promotions or emails to buyers but we do not import or manage the in-marketplace emails.

      Thanks,
      Tiana

    Turbo Lister is being discontinued with no replacement as of June 2017. Might be time to update this article. Not quite clear if that means it’ll stop working altogether, or if it’ll keep working until the next platform update, but it’s on the way out either way.
    As a seller who has recently thrown himself into selling in the last few months, I’m really disappointed that this simple tool is being discontinued.

      Hi Andy,

      Thanks for the information. Yes, you are correct, they will discontinue Turbo Lister in June 2017. It will continue to work for those who’ve been using it. No one know how long. I agree that it is disappointing. eBay is moving everyone over to their new eBay Seller Hub. Here are a few links with updates:

      Thanks,

    We sell a lot of seasonal items. Turbo Lister, located on our hard drive, was a perfect location to store out of season items, avoiding paying ‘rent’ to eBay each month.
    Do you have a solution to our problem?

    1. Haley Cloyd

      Al, great question!

      Within ecomdash, you can store your product and listing details without the product being on eBay. This way, you can easily re-submit your listing to eBay whenever you’re ready. If you’d like to speak to an ecomdash team member in more deatil, please email support@ecomdash.com.

      Hope this helps!
