10 Stellar Browser Plugins To Assist With Your eBay Online Auctions

Buying and selling on eBay is not only fun, but a great way to make some extra money or find items that are seemingly unreachable when shopping. Advanced users may already have their methods perfected, but adding in a browser plugin can ease the pain of daunting tasks like currency converting or price comparison.

1. Fast Search for eBay

Available for Chrome and Firefox, this extension helps you search very quickly. It will search eBay’s international sites, suggest searches, follow search configurations, watch listings, and so much more. It may be completely customized and is great for an eBay power user.

2. eBay

Of course eBay has its own plugin available on Chrome, Firefox, and Safari. It allows users to keep track of the items they are bidding on, as well as eBay’s daily deals. Users may also save searches and stay up to date with saved sellers.

3. SellerTab

This gives users an easy way to track all of their seller activity from one page. Installing the extension will allow the user to view their seller highlights each time they browse. They can also track new purchases and see how many items they need to ship out. It is a great way for sellers to stay organized on Chrome, Safari, and Firefox.

4. eBay Amazon Price Comparison

Here you will find the ability to get a side-by-side comparison of an item’s price on eBay and Amazon. It is as simple as searching for the item and the extension will show both of the marketplaces at the same time. This is helpful for the shopper that is keen on getting the best price. It is available on Chrome and Firefox.

6. What’s it Worth?

This is a very helpful plugin available for Chrome, Firefox, iOS, and Android that can give users an idea of how much an item is really worth or what it will sell for on eBay. The way it works is by taking the average eBay price of similar items that have successfully sold in the previous weeks. This is a good tool to help determine whether it might be worth your time to sell an item on eBay.

7. eBay Negs!

Only on Firefox, using this extension allows the ability to view all of a seller’s negative feedback with a simple right-click. This is a good way to determine if a seller is worth purchasing from.

9. Snipe It

This is also known as Myibidder Auction Bid Sniper and is available for Chrome, Firefox, Android, and iOS. It allows bidders to “snipe” or place a bid on an item in the last few remaining seconds of the item’s auction. The button is installed and will appear on every eBay page to allow for easy sniping, all you have to do it tell it which products to snipe.

10. eBay Worldwide Currency Converter

When purchasing from another country, this extension allows users to shop on any eBay storefront in their own currency. It takes the pain out of researching currency conversions and can be used with Firefox and Chrome.

7 Tools to Help Keep Track of Goals and Habits Effectively

7 Tools to Help Keep Track of Goals and Habits Effectively

Now that 2011 is well underway and most people have fallen off the bandwagon when it comes to their New Year’s resolutions (myself included), it’s a good time to step back and take an honest look at our habits and the goals that we want to achieve.

Something that I have learned over the past few years is that if you track something, be it your eating habits, exercise, writing time, work time, etc. you become aware of the reality of the situation. This is why most diet gurus tell you to track what you eat for a week so you have an awareness of the of how you really eat before you start your diet and exercise regimen.

Tracking daily habits and progress towards goals is another way to see reality and create a way for you clearly review what you have accomplished over a set period of time. Tracking helps motivate you too; if I can make a change in my life and do it once a day for a period of time it makes me more apt to keep doing it.

So, if you have some goals and habits in mind that need tracked, all you need is a tracking tool. Today we’ll look at 7 different tools to help you keep track of your habits and goals.

Joe’s Goals

    Joe’s Goals is a web-based tool that allows users to track their habits and goals in an easy to use interface. Users can add as many goals/habits as they want and also check multiple times per day for those “extra productive days”. Something that is unique about Joe’s Goals is the way that you can keep track of negative habits such as eating out, smoking, etc. This can help you visualize the good things that you are doing as well as the negative things that you are doing in your life.

    Joe’s Goals is free with a subscription version giving you no ads and the “latest version” for $12 a year.

    Daytum

      Daytum

      is an in depth way of counting things that you do during the day and then presenting them to you in many different reports and groups. With Daytum you can add several different items to different custom categories such as work, school, home, etc. to keep track of your habits in each focus area of your life.

      Daytum is extremely in depth and there are a ton of settings for users to tweak. There is a free version that is pretty standard, but if you want more features and unlimited items and categories you’ll need Daytum Plus which is $4 a month.

      Excel or Numbers

        If you are the spreadsheet number cruncher type and the thought of using someone else’s idea of how you should track your habits turns you off, then creating your own Excel/Numbers/Google spreadsheet is the way to go. Not only do you have pretty much limitless ways to view, enter, and manipulate your goal and habit data, but you have complete control over your stuff and can make it private.

        What’s nice about spreadsheets is you can create reports and can customize your views in any way you see fit. Also, by using Dropbox, you can keep your tracker sheets anywhere you have a connection.

        Evernote

        Advertising

          I must admit, I am an Evernote junky, mostly because this tool is so ubiquitous. There are several ways you can implement habit/goal tracking with Evernote. You won’t be able to get nifty reports and graphs and such, but you will be able to access your goal tracking anywhere your are, be it iPhone, Android, Mac, PC, or web. With Evernote you pretty much have no excuse for not entering your daily habit and goal information as it is available anywhere.

          Evernote is free with a premium version available.

          Access or Bento

            If you like the idea of creating your own tracker via Excel or Numbers, you may be compelled to get even more creative with database tools like Access for Windows or Bento for Mac. These tools allow you to set up relational databases and even give you the option of setting up custom interfaces to interact with your data. Access is pretty powerful for personal database applications, and using it with other MS products, you can come up with some pretty awesome, in depth analysis and tracking of your habits and goals.

            Bento is extremely powerful and user friendly. Also with Bento you can get the iPhone and iPad app to keep your data anywhere you go.

            You can check out Access and the Office Suite here and Bento here.

            Analog Bonus: Pen and Paper

            All these digital tools are pretty nifty and have all sorts of bells and whistles, but there are some people out there that still swear by a notebook and pen. Just like using spreadsheets or personal databases, pen and paper gives you ultimate freedom and control when it comes to your set up. It also doesn’t lock you into anyone else’s idea of just how you should track your habits.

            Conclusion

            I can’t necessarily recommend which tool is the best for tracking your personal habits and goals, as all of them have their quirks. What I can do however (yes, it’s a bit of a cop-out) is tell you that the tool to use is whatever works best for you. I personally keep track of my daily habits and personal goals with a combo Evernote for input and then a Google spreadsheet for long-term tracking.

            What this all comes down to is not how or what tool you use, but finding what you are comfortable with and then getting busy with creating lasting habits and accomplishing short- and long-term goals.
