My eBay Exporter is a free program for Windows that allows you to export eBay data as csv or Excel data to the local system.
Users worldwide use the auction platform eBay to buy and sell items. Statistical information are provided by eBay in the My eBay area of the website where data is available for the past 60 days (the latest eBay version allows to look up data of the past three years).
Data past that period cannot be retrieved on the eBay website at all which can be problematic for businesses and individuals who want to process the data. This can be useful to keep track of the business, find out what sells well and what does not, or simply to keep records for statistical or tax purposes.
My eBay exporter is a portable software program for eBay businesses and individuals who want to save their eBay auction data locally.
The software supports 16 eBay stores including those located in the United States, Germany, United Kingdom and Canada. The user needs to supply the eBay username, password and store for the application to be able to retrieve the data from eBay.
Data can be exported as a csv or Microsoft Excel file. Information that the program saves includes the won and lost auction of the buying list, as well as auctions under watching and bidding on. The selling list, which is also exported, lists sold and unsold auctions, as well as active and scheduled auctions.
It should be noted that this application is also only capable of retrieving up to 60 days of data which means that a user would need to run the software every 60 days to retrieve continuous data. The exported files would also have to be joined later on as there does not seem to be a way to do that automatically.
Update: The application has not been updated since 2009, which likely means that it won't work anymore. To make matters worse, the homepage the software was hosted on is also no longer available.
You can download the latest version of My eBay Export from third-party download portals such as Softpedia.
If you process payments only via PayPal, you may export the information from PayPal directly. You are not limited to 50 days in this case which may be useful.
