Default Ebay is too much work

Okay, so basically I get physically sick whenever I even think about Ebay. I just hate doing anything that has to do with Ebay (shipping, emails - this ones a killer, listing, taking pictures). I'm listing 120 items a week (usually 60 unique items on 10+ ID'S), by myself and it's just a ton of work (esp. the taking pictures, listing, email, shipping). I think I work 10 hours a day and I'm a full time student.

Besides the above there is always the fear that Ebay will shut me down for no reason.

So - I was thinking what are some ways all to automate all of this process?

I already got someone to answer emails for me - but what I really prefer is just to order the products to a order fulfillment center (or something). Of course, I would still need picture taking, auction listing, and shipping help....

Really?

I don't know if that would make it more complicated though.

However I am looking at VENDIO and they offer multiple ID's and google checkout!

Yea I went there and they charge 30% + $35 fee. WTF.

Anyways Vendio seems pretty good. They offer customers to checkout using google checkout and support multiple user ID'S. However the question is I am sure I have authorize it as a third party.

Does anyone know if I do this on say all 10 of my accounts, they are gonna be connected anyways?

It seems a bit risky to me. If you do it, you should start off with only a couple accounts, or even just one.

Yea, I'm starting with just one =).

But anyways, didn't you say that Ebay only gets cookies when we log in?

So as long as I log in/ authorize Vendio at different IP's for my different accounts I hope I'm okay...

It even said on Vendio that a lot of business have 1 account for each employee (say consignment stores maybe).

I don't know, but I really got spooked when the Vendio guy called me 1 minute after I sign up

It's risky. If they login to multiple accounts using the same IP and without cleaning cookies, this could link accounts and screw you in the long run.

haha serious ebay hater, ebay isn't that hard. And 120 items a week, maybe that's your problem. Might wanna tone it down a notch, or devote one or two hours a week specifically for ebay with some music in the background Good luck!
