Where you're wasting time

The Place

What do you use to answer to potential buyers' questions? eBay website? Thunderbird, Google Mail or other Mail Reader? All are clearly suitable, but when it comes to efficiency all are quite poor.

FAQ & Auto Answers

Although you spend lot of time to build and mantain a rich Auto Answer Session on eBay, someone didn't notice, while someother want a live confirmation that what stated in FAQ/Auto Answer is effective.


Most customers send mails to choose color, some a further mail to change their choice, someother sends three times the same mail for redundancy: But for every message you have to check if recorded choice is the latest.

Previous Answers

Knowing previous answers can help you to issue a better reply: for example, saving time to find info you already have, avoid answers in sharp contrast, fully understand what is the matter of the deal/claim and so on.

Technical Questions

Sometimes a reply is such specific to require an answer from a technician or an expert (or from the Boss) but he/she is not in: in some circumstances the risk for this question to get lost or answered after days is high.

Missing crucial info

What about when you have already written great part of the reply and discover you're missing an essential info: You can throw away what done or spend time to search for the missing info: none of the option is efficient

Customer's History

When it comes to claims, perhaps it is unfair, but a claim from a regular customer is frequently taken most seriously than a claim from a new customer: This will at least affect the thrust of your answer.

Language Issue

Often messages are is in a different language: perhaps you understand the meaning but not sure how to answer in customer's Language: there's google translator but opening, type, copy and paste... takes time.

Shipping Details

Someone just asks for Tracking details, or the status of the shipping, or invoice and warranty certificate. It's simple and reasonable question but it can takes a quarter of an hour to find the document, scan and send.


The most efficient way to manage messages


Messages are divided into 6 folders: New, Answered, Draft, Boss, Tech, Trash: in this way you can choose from which folder start to answer.

Everything in sigth

jsMessage shows you all relevant info in the same window: Applicant Details, Previous Purchases, Previous Messages received and relative answers this allows you to answer quickly, accurately and effectively

Select by Importance

In Messages Overwiew you are informed if applicant is a new or a recurring customer, ItemID, Title, price, age of message and message itself: in this way you can select the most urgent message to answer


From the same window, if necessary you can modify some fields, like quantity, ItemID, color, Carrier, TotalAmount, ShippingDetails and add remarks for carrier and for Packing facility

See how it works!

Yes, it is as easy as you might think!
