Blackthorne is retired by eBay , time to move on


From March 31, 2014, eBay has not updated, added new features nor provided technical support for the Blackthorne listing tool regardless if Basic or Pro version. The reason was very simple, eBay decided to retire this software.

Blackthorne was a listing and sales management application acquired in 1999 by eBay and worked on till 2008.

Having a Basic and a Pro version, Blackthorne was helping eBay sellers to create and manage listings on the local PC hard drives, track sales and manage communication with buyers.



As of September 30, 2014, Blackthorne will be no longer available. This means that you can no longer use Blackthorne to list on eBay, and technical support will no longer provided.
You can still access your data after the discontinuation of Blackthorne, and your historical sales—and listing data—will be locally available on your desktop.
