Using the Excel plug-in for eBay
eBay has created a plug-in that adds eBay-specific features to Microsoft Excel. A plug-in is a small program that you can download and install to add features to exsiting programs.
When you download and install the plug-in, you can manage all your eBay listings directly in Microsoft Excel. From there you can create new listings, relist ended listings, end current listings, and edit existing listings. You can also get a report of your sold items and add tracking information for items you have shipped.
