ProPay has been added to the list of supported payment methods. This release also features the initial version of the Bulk Listing Editor providing the capabilities to load, view, sort and edit many listings at the same time using a grid format. Fields may be copied and pasted between listings quickly, allowing larger numbers of listings to be changed all at once. This feature is especially valuable when used in conjunction with listing import features such as the csv listing import function or the ability to import existing listings from eBay. The imported listings can now be copied and saved under a new folder, where they can be edited in bulk to redirect them to other selling sites such as moving listings from eBay USA to eBay UK, or to DealDance.com or any other selling venue supported by SpoonFeeder.

Allows the user to import a list of item numbers and/or to import all items submitted between a specified date range. New SpoonFeeder listing files are created which can be resubmitted directly to eBay or other sites. This feature also provides the option to automatically download pictures from the item listings which are hosted anywhere on the web and to convert them to local picture files which can be rehosted elsewhere such as with SpoonFeeder. This is a great feature for sellers who are migrating to SpoonFeeder from other auction management systems and who wish to easily bring their item listings with them.
