Please download the MLLister program from the following site: http://www.militaria321.com/offlinetool.cfm

Please click „Synchronize" to import items that are already listed online into the MLLister. Your sold items will also be loaded into the program so that they are at your disposal. 

Now you are ready to create your first item with the MLLister!

4) Create new  item 

Click onto the button „New" and „Form" which you can find under the menu items. 

The main window is opened and you can enter all data offline, which helps to save a lot of time. 

We won�t discuss the auction details at this point, as you already know them from the online auctions. Here are some further characteristics of the MLLister. 

Start of an auction

Here you can either enter no date (no entry in the box, auction starts at the next possible time indicated). Keep in mind that if you eg. entered 21:35 and you list the auction at 22:00,then the auction will start the next day! Or you can click onto the „Date" button and enter the current date or a date of your choice.
 
Description-Editor


In the left corner at the top you can choose between „HTML-Design" and „Texteditor". Use the practical HTML Editor to improve your auctions easily without having html-skills.  

Images 

You can upload up to 4 images, as in the online auction.

Just click into the image-box and a window, giving you the possible sources for your images, opens up.

If you want to delete an image, click with the right mouse button onto the image you want to delete. 

If you enter everything correctly, your auction will appear in the folder "New". You can then upload that auction or others with the "List" button! If you enter something in a wrong way or if you forget something, the MLLister will send you an error message.

Hint 

Please be aware that you may have to edit some items after the import! Check if the items are correct before uploading them! 

The MLLister does a lot of work for you, but there are some details which cannot be adopted because of different systems and software!

If you import Ebay Turbolister files, you must always assign/enter the categories - as there are differences between the ebay and militaria321.com categories. At the moment we try to make sure that all militaria321.com categories are automatically adopted!  


Have fun and success with the MLLister!
