eBay Gallery Plus Option Automatically Checked in Turbo Lister 2

My wife noticed while she was posting items for sell on eBay with Turbo Lister 2 today that the checkbox for adding a Gallery Plus picture was being checked automatically. She didn't want an additional fee for this feature and was annoyed that the box was being checked. She pointed out to me that many other people were complaining of the same problem at Turbo Lister adding Gallery Plus to my Listings! When I checked that webpage, though, I found some people stating that the Gallery Plus images were free when sellers posted items for sale in some categories, e.g., collectibles. Someone posted the following from an eBay announcement in 2009:

We are excited to announce that we are making eBay individual pictures, Picture Pack and Gallery Plus free for items listed in the following categories — Collectibles, Art, Pottery & Glass, and Antiques. We are committed to the success of our sellers and to continually improving the overall experience for all of our customers — both buyers and sellers

When I checked an eBay "help" page on Gallery Plus, I found no mention of the above statement, but I did find that information on the link from that page to an eBay fees information page.

When I checked the auction items in Turbo Lister 2 for which she was seeing the box being checked even when she had unchecked it, I found she had designated the category for them items as "collectibles", so I told her she shouldn't see any Gallery Plus fee for those items.

Turbo Lister Postage Warning

When she tried to upload an item she intended to sell on eBay with Tubo Lister version, my wife received the error message below:

Warning - The postage cost will be calculated based on dimensional weight, not the actual weight of your package. Please check the weight and dimensions of your package.

She had specified the dimensions and weight of the item and both domestic and international shipping options, so it wasn't apparent to either of us why she received the message. Apparently, the warning can be ignored, though. I found someone else, exdwh posting the following at Re: error code: 21916962 on July 9, 2010.

That's only an informational warning.

The only way to 'get rid of this error' would be to substitute the dimensional weight as calculated by the shipping carrier.

A better solution is to filter out the warnings you don't care about.

When she ignored the message and uploaded the item for sale with Turbo Lister, the item looked fine on eBay.

Using a Shared Database at a Network Location with eBay's Turbo Lister 2

My wife uses eBay's Turbo Lister 2 to manage her eBay auctions. She has a custom template she uses and wanted to have her laptop and desktop systems use the same information, i.e. any change she made in the program while working on the laptop would be seen by Turbo Lister on her desktop system and vice versa. The laptop was new; she had been using Turbo Lister 2 exclusively on the desktop system.

So when I installed Turbo Lister 2 (version was shown when I clicked on Help and About Turbo Lister after installing the software) on her laptop running Windows 7, I checked to see what registry value it was using, after I ran the program once, to point to the location it uses for its data directory. There was no option for specifying the location for the program's data when I checked under Tools and Options in the program, so I had to find the location in the registry. On the Windows 7 laptop, I saw the following registry value under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\eBay\Turbo Lister2:

DataDirREG_SZC:\ProgramData\eBay\Turbo Lister2

I checked the contents of that directory from a command prompt and saw there were 3 .tdb files within that directory, an App.tdb, a user000.tdb and one associated with a name matching her eBay store.

Note: you may not see the directory from the Windows Explorer, since C:\ProgramData is a hidden directory, if you don't have it configured to show hidden folders. But, if you get a command prompt and issue the command, dir "C:\ProgramData\eBay\Turbo Lister2", you should see its contents.

On her Windows XP desktop system, I found the following registry value for the location of Turbo Lister's databases:

DataDirREG_SZ C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\eBay\Turbo Lister2

I copied the contents of the directory C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\eBay\Turbo Lister2 from the desktop system to a shared network folder. Then on both systems I changed the registry value for DataDir to point to that location. E.g., you could use the following, if the system that was sharing the folder was named MyServer and the shared folder was shared as Auctions with a Turbo Lister2 directory created within it.

DataDirREG_SZ \\MyServer\Auctions\Turbo Lister2

Note: don't make the registry changes while Turbo Lister is open.
