It is more frustrating to hear all of the complaints, yet once the Auctiva issue is resolved those people still STAY here. I'm sorry but I save HUNDREDS in the images I can place in my listings alone! But honestly, if a seller has such a huge empire that they would go out of business with these sporadic issues . . .then it is their responsibility to have safety measures, etc.
All business have risks and all similar services have occassional down time. Stop complaining and take the good with the bad. I have over 3500 listings and although it is frustrating, it won't kill me. I am very grateful for this FREE service and ALL of the great features! I dont use pay pal I have my own merchant account to accept credit cards--with Auctiva I can link the processing FREE without having to pay for an integrated shopping cart/checkout. So to all you complainers, I understand it is frustrating, but just take a chill pill it is not that serious, if it is, then you should find an alternative.
