WorldLister, based in Naples, FL, was launched on December 3rd, 2013. It is a free web application which allows eBay users to list items they wish to sell in just a few minutes. This cuts the time that was required for listing by 85%. WorldLister, in turn, helps eBay save its sellers from using a different selling site. EBay has struggled with losing its sellers due to the introduction of several other listing aids provided online. Bryan Harmon, co-founder and CEO of WorldLister, explains, “Many new listing tools have claimed to revolutionize the seller’s listing process, but sellers are still presented with an outdated form, hidden costs and the time-consuming task of writing content they hope will sell their item. Those days are over. WorldLister eliminates all these struggles and makes online selling what it should be — fast, mobile, intuitive and free.”
