Video Demo – Moving eBay Listings with a Turbo Lister CSV File

by Steve on March 11, 2008 · 2 comments

eBay's free listing tool, Turbo Lister offers an import / export feature that sees little use by sellers. Granted, it can be frustrating to use at first. But there are occasions where it can be a lifesaver. No one wants to recreate every listing one by one. Here are a few situations I've found while scanning discussions on eBay:

  • You want to move your Turbo Lister program onto a laptop or new computer, along with all your current inventory
  • You'd like to sell identical listings, under a different eBay ID
  • Your eBay account has been suspended, and you're listings ended with no way to relist them once things are resolved
  • Your eBay account is suspended, and you want to sell under another ID (This is against the rules - but people are looking for the answer)

Well, you get the idea. Keeping your listings on Turbo Lister, and keeping them current, is a way to recover from all kinds of problems, large and small. So how is it done?

In this post I'm only going to show the procedure for exporting listings to a CSV (comma-separated value) file, then importing them back into a different eBay account. The process works the same for any of the scenarios listed above. There are many other ways to manipulate the file, once it's exported, but for this video demonstration we won't even open the file.

Very helpful information. Great for both moving items from one computer to another and for “archiving” listings.

Thank You
