not really impressed with auction inspector, it hasn't helped me any. It just scans the wanted board at ebay and let's you know what people are wanting. But it is usually just one person wanting it and if you search for that item on ebay, you find 50 sellers already selling it. So in my opinion don't waste your money.

Hope this helps you save some money.

I also purchased auction inspector and find it to be a total waist of time and money. There are so few people who actually post on 'want it now' or even look at the 'want it now' site. I myself have been a ebay buyer and seller for over 5 years and have NEVER used 'want it now'. I find Auction Inspector has the same limitations that you described above. 'Want it now' is just not well used and doesn't give a great evaluation of what people really want on ebay. I think that auction inspector would be better if it evaluated actual auctions to see what items have the most bids and highest bid price over wholesale prices and fewest available. That in my opinion would give a more accurate evaluation on what is in demand on ebay. For example: R2D2 Wilton cake pans sell on ebay for about $45 each and there are always dozens of bids per pan. These items are sold out in stores but originally retailed for only about $15. If you can get your hands on this item to sell on ebay you could make a ton of $$ but if you use auction inspector to see the 'potential' for R2D2 cake pans, the Auction Inspector evaluates this item as low potential, simply because people don't post or use 'want it now'. There is actually only 1 post on the 'want it now'.

I bought Auction Inspector & it was a HUGE waste of money. It is totally useless. It really tells you nothing. I wish I hadn't spent the money, but you know what they say about hindsight.

Auction Inspector is crap.

Well want to know what I use, that would be two variations of PPC Web Spy. All of them I downloaded for free. Find your keywords fast, they are what matter.

Agree with everyone that Auction Inspector a waste of money.

If you wanted to target the few people who desired the rarest of items AND ALSO know about eBay's 'Want It Now' feature... (how few is that?) then Auction Inspector is great buy.

If you want a tool to determine what to sell for the vast majority of visitors of ebay, AI isn't much help

I to purchased it, worked with it for about a week, requested and received a refund.

I found Terapeak much more useful by researching SOLD items. I can even determine TRENDS by checking 7 day, 30 day & 90 day to see if the number of auctions on an item is increasing or decreasing as well as if the selling price is trending upward or downward and finally if the ratio of auctions ending in a sale to # of auctions started is solid.

For instance if I see that there are 3000 auctions per week for an item and 50% of them end in a sale that result in a potential profit for me...I'm all over it...whereas if the number of auctions are declining and only 16% result in a sale and most of those wouldn't cover my cost...I look elsewhere.

In most cases a 33% sell through would perk my interest because that means that with a successful sale (free relisting with ebay if it sells on 2nd attempt) I staqnd a 66% chance of selling the item successfully.
