Drafts / Catalog (and copy between eBay accounts)

Both services offer a section of their platforms for unpublished listings.

CrazyLister has a “Catalog,” developed as a stand-alone tool. Where 3Dsellers' simplified this feature into a “Drafts” folder, right next to your Active items.

To copy listings to other eBay accounts with CrazyLister, you must import all of your eBay items into the catalog.

However, in 3Dsellers, you can filter and select certain items from any account and copy only those listings to your Drafts folder. The organization and speed of your workflow when copying listings is much cleaner and faster with 3Dsellers.

Bulk Edit eBay Listings

CrazyLister uses their catalog to only bulk edit item specifics and uses a “find and replace” feature for descriptions.

3Dsellers allows bulk editing for prices, quantity, categories, location, business policies, SEO data, design templates, generate SKUs, & more, and can use Find & Replace to edit titles, descriptions, and Item Specifics values (and HTML code).

You can also upload a CSV to 3Dsellers and bulk-update prices and quantities.

Listing Design Templates

Both platforms allow bulk applying template designs, as well as removing them.

However, 3Dsellers has advanced filters to find certain items to bulk-select and apply, and even offers Rules for automatically applying designs to new listings based on category and Store category.

CrazyLister offers many templates to begin your design with and includes a drag and drop template editor. The design editor is very open ended and can cause a quick mess for those who are not familiar with Photoshop-like applications (which can bring about long hours of work.)

It is also important to note that if you choose to insert cross-promoted items, you cannot control which items are displayed.

3Dsellers has 2 different template editors. One for simple designing, and another for advanced editing (without any mess).

Templates that are not “classic” allow custom HTML anywhere in the design, making them perfect for hiring a teammate to design your listings, and allowing you to easily edit the content later.

Bonus: 3Dsellers also offers full-custom HTML templates.

Every template also allows custom cross-promotion options so you can promote the items you want to sell more of. When cross promoting items with the advanced editors, you can even set your featured listings to display items from the same eBay category, or Store category as the listing your template is applied to.

Conclusion

CrazyLister has been a go-to platform by many eBay sellers and is held in high regards as a pioneer platform by many sellers. However, it is now being surpassed by services like 3Dsellers.

Sadly, choosing CrazyLister for your listing and design template manager would require you to subscribe to 2-3 more applications to get all the features of 3Dsellers. Sorry to say, it has been a great run, CrazyLister, but the future is 3D.
