“But when you then list it, eBay has the barcode: aren’t the rest of the details filled in from that?”
Here’s what happens. I picked a smaller label classical cd to test.
the Garagesale Scout scanned/recognised barcode will output this:
PRODUCT field being the barcode number
Once imported to Garagesale this is what the output is: (the right side of photo is cut off on this preview, click to see everything)
as you see, no specifics, no titles, nothing at all except the barcode.
using eBay’s own barcode scanner, the first output from the barcode scan gives me this. So actually 2 different outputs to choose from.
I assumed this was the purpose of the app.
If you’re suggesting that additional info is all pulled during the actual act of listing and only visible after the listing has started, that’s pretty useless. For most people it’s the act of typing out Titles for listings that we try to automate, hence barcode scanning.
So yeah, it worked with a random book, just not any CD’s I’m putting through it. Weird.
