Looks a lot better than Sellerwise (included when you sign up for an eBay store). These little subscription fees for tools start adding up though! Right now I'm paying $9.95/mo for Inkfrog, $15/mo for ebay store, $140 a year for Terapeak (sale price, regularly $240!). Cost of business I suppose.

Anyone have experience with the other online listing services (Auctiva, etc.) So far Inkfrog has worked for me. It can occasionally be buggy, but it's inexpensive, easy to use, and has some great time saving bulk listing & editing features.

I see that alot of my ebay buyers are in Japan/Thailand/Malaysia. I'm a hobby seller and most of the time I don't find anything at the TS so investing in costly services doesn't make sense for me, but even if I was a professional seller, I don't think that I would use bandwidth heavy services like auctivia.

Internet connections can be quite shoddy in Malaysia/Thailand.

I try to stay away from activia's scrolling javasript widgets and very large pics. What do you think?

Make the pic big but not too big! 800x600 max. No javascript, no problem! Ink frog offers a flash based gallery, but I stick it all the way at the bottom of my listings.

I chose inkfrog as opposed to Auctiva because of IF's simple pricing (only one rate, $9.95 /mo). I think Auctiva premium plans require a percentage fee on each item sold.
