What Exactly Is eTextAlert?

There are three main features to eTextAlert. The first gives you the ability to send auction reminders to potential buyers. They simply sign-up for a reminder on your auction item page. The second allows you to send yourself last minute reminders for items you're watching. The third allows you to get text or email alerts for certain buyer actions such as when they ask you a question or purchase one of your items.

Feature 1, Auction Visitor Alerts

Simply put eTextAlert will allow you to place a form on your auction item page that will allow visitors to sign-up for a last minute reminder sent via text or email. They get to choose when it gets sent and whether they want a sms text or email or both. For instance they can choose to receive an email 30 minutes before your auction ends and a sms text message 15 minutes before it ends. 

Let's face it, the average ebay shopper does not bid on an item right when they find it. They add it to their watch list along with several other similar items and wait till they get close to ending. The problem is a lot of potential buyers will simply forget to log back into ebay and miss your auction.

Why You Should Use eTextAlert On All Your Auctions?  

  • Most importantly it increases the number of last minute bidders
  • Visitors to your auction will love it and more importantly use it
  • The form can be customized to match your auction templates
Feature 2, Watch List Alerts

This gives you the ability to set yourself reminders sent via text, email, and/or IM (instant message) for all auctions on your Watch List. Say goodbye to sticky notes. Why not send yourself a text reminder instead?

Top Reasons to use Watch List Alerts?  

  • It's the easiest way to remind yourself of an auction.
  • You can pick and choose which auctions to get alerts for and when to send them.
  • You can set it to automatically send you alerts of all items you're watching.
  • Get alerts sent by email, text, and IM. Pick one or all three!
Feature 3, Seller Alerts

This gives you the ability to send yourself text, email, and/or IM alerts based on certain buyer actions. Get an alert when someone asks you question, when someone bids on one of your items, when someone buys a fixed priced item or wins an auction, when someone actually pays you, and when someone leaves you feedback. We also give you the ability to filter the alerts to specific items and times. So if you only want to be notified when a certain item sells you can do that. This can really help if you sell drop ship items along with items you stock and need to know right away when the drop ship item sells so you can start the shipping process. You can also filter the alerts so they only get sent during certain times of the day, and you can even filter the feedback alerts by type (positive, neutral, negative).
