Express Lister is not working on my computer, why?
Please view the following possible causes.

  • Please see the Minimum System Requirements to make sure your computer is compatible.
  • Downloading Express Lister with compression software can corrupt the files.
  • Try uninstalling Express Lister and restarting your computer and then reinstalling it again.
  • ISP Compression software
    Some ISPs may use site compression software to serve their users in order to save their bandwidth. This may interrupt the data transmission between our server and Express Lister. Please check with your ISP for a solution.

Why can't I import pictures that are hosted online, into Express Lister from Turbo Lister?
There are a few reasons for this.

  • Server not Found. This will occur when Express Lister tries to download a pic from a source that no longer exists. Check the pic source.
  • Turbo Lister creates a different Pic URL in the PicURL column in the CSV export file. Check the URL is correct.

There are currently no costs to upload listings via Express Lister. Promotional feature fees and Classified listings fees are the same as when listing online.


How can I update my version of Express Lister?
Express Lister will automatically update to the latest version when you restart it. To find out what version you have, click Help > About from the menu bar.

If you do not have the latest version please download it from our download page.


How do I match eBay's categories to quicksales' categories?
After you import items from Turbo Lister you will prompted to match categories. The eBay to quicksales category matching screen allows you to click on each eBay category and select the relevant quicksales category. Most categories will be automatically matched and you will only need to confirm the matches are correct.

Note 1: Some eBay categories may not be found, this is due to importing items with invalid eBay categories (out-of-date) from Turbo Lister. You can get around this by ensuring your Turbo Lister is up-to-date and all items have the latest category before exporting the items. The quickest way to find invalid categories in Turbo Lister (after you have updated the program) is to Edit the first item and click the Next Item arrow and go through all items to see which categories are invalid (a warning will show).

Note 2: If you still see invalid eBay categories in Express Lister's matching screen, you will not be able to edit them, please press the 'Confirm' button and edit the category in the Edit Item window afterwards.
