VieBuy 3.4 is now active at viebuy.com
BINSniper 3.4 is now available via the Firefox add-on installation process.
- A new “All Channels” option is now available for search site-wide on any eBay site. This feature allows you to use one filter across the entire site where items may be in more than one channel. Using this feature can improve search delays.
- Upgrade alerts and other system status messages will now be visible at the top of the VieBuy and BINSniper screens. Notices of new features and releases will appear on the screen in both apps.
- VieBuy has rotating tips at the top of the screen. These can now be disabled in the Settings page. The tips provide answers to common questions and are updated with information on new features.
If you are running the same search in multiple channels, you can now select “All Channels” to search all of eBay without any category restrictions.
Channels are a friendly shortcut to searching categories. So if you are searching items that will only appear in one channel, you should continue to use the specific channels.
For example, if you are searching for iPhone 6 smartphones, you should use the “Cell Phones & Accessories” channel. But if you are searching for a wide range of items related to frogs for your eclectic frog collection, you should use the “All Channels” option rather than create multiple filters.
In general you want to create as few filters as possible, while targeting the filters as much as possible. This will give the fastest and most accurate results.
The “All channels” feature should not be used as a general replacement for all searches. Single category searches are generally faster.
Note that if you enter category number in a filter while using “All channels”, only the selected categories will be searched.
