    Vendio claims no listing fees plus no limited lists. Is it true? Someone has any experience using that and how good is it?

    Also, upgrade an ebay account that is less than one month old to a business account could solve the limit of listings?

    Vendio is old school. A lot of the stuff you need to do, you no longer can because eBay has been updated.

    I have had a handful of instances where I pay Vendio their percentage (which didn't match my records, and was always more) and then cancel them, only for them to start mailing me invoices for a time period that includes when I was signed up with them and when I wasn't.

    Vendio for inventory management is very unreliable. People jump at Vendio because you can control sales for eBay and Amazon, but neither work very well. I realized years ago I was spending thousands each year on eBays planned listing starts, which is when you plan when your listing will go live and usually at very important peak times. Vendio seemed like a money saver, but my eBay listings would never start when I wanted and I could never figure out why as a way to estimate when it would actually go live. Some would be 4 hours later, some would be 8 hours, some would be 2 days later. This isn't really acceptable.

    Back when I was using it, you had to pay in order to speak with any sort of technical support. You had to pay something like 4.99 a month or something. I did, although charging your clients to troubleshoot issues is not something that sits well with me as a businessman, I paid for it. In return, I was met with long extended wait period, often told to call back hours later or the next day. Most of my issues were never helped. I was eventually told that Vendio simply did not have a lot of employees.

    The actual listing portion of Vendio is buggy beyond belief. It's half assed. Maybe because its outdated, but mostly because Vendio was made by someone with an idea that outsourced the programming aspects to unskilled cheap labor or something that never finished the work, I don't know. There is a lot of variables when it comes to listing things that Vendio just doesn't connect to. This is 99% of most ex-vendio users experiences on why they stopped using Vendio.

    The ONLY thing I like about Vendio is its Research, which of course costs more (its the only thing I pay for).

    Also, although Vendio is intended mostly for eBay it was purchased out by eBays largest competitor which is Alibaba as a way to get people to buy their inventory from AliExpress and promote other little things. It's a sinking ship, and the people that work there just don't care about it.

    Thanks! And what about upgrading to a ebay business account? Is it worth?
