Your Message to eBay Software Developers

Saturday, 3 April 2010 at 9:46 am Pacific USA Time.

2010 marks the 4th year I will be presenting my "Branding and Marketing for eBay Developers" seminar at eBay's Developers Conference.

Each year, I tell the programmers of today and tomorrow what you want. What you need. How you want to be treated. What to NOT name their software. :)

This year, let's try something different. You tell ME what you want these people to know!

  • What problems do you have that some sort of software or tool can fix or improve?
  • What kinds of eBay-related tools do you wish someone would build?
  • How do you like to get customer support? Email, phone, Twitter, something else?
  • What features are important to you?
  • Where do you tend to find new software tools? Blogs, conferences, friends, etc…? What sources do you trust to recommend these to you?
  • Do you check the eBay Solutions Directory or eBay Certified Provider website for companies you can work with?

Comment here ASAP, and good ones will be included in my presentation to programmers. Let's make software better!

    I wish it was easier to change the quantity of inventory using ebay’s software. It’s very clunky as it is and requires a lot of clicks.

    I don’t use any 3rd party software except Endicia for shipping & I have over 14,000 items in my eBay store.
    Most of the apps I have tried in the past have been too complicated for me to use on a regular basis or I had to keep updating.
    I like simple and consistency. Also, EVERYTHING I use has to be web-based. I don’t want to download ANYTHING
