    I was wondering if there is software/script or search phrase that lets me see what my competitors best selling items are. I would like something that lists the competitors best selling items in order of most sold from their ebay store and listings. I currently look through their feedback to see what they have sold the most but this takes ages.

    just use the advanced search function - click on the member only search then completed items tab and see what items he sells - only works for a few weeks though but usually you get a good enough idea-

    Have you considered using Hammertap?

    http://www.hammertap.com/
    (10 day free trial)

    One of the main features allows you to type in anyone's id and get some pretty sick stats on the auctions for the last 30 days (I think..). It gives all of their listings, how they were listed, starting bid and ending bid, auction success rate, best start and end times, which keywords were the most successful, etc.

    You can search by product and category, too. Which, once you get the hang of it, can give you a huge competitive edge. Hope this was helpful.
