ASP.NET 2.0 Starter Kit: The eBay Selling Starter Kit

The eBay Selling Starter Kit for ASP.NET 2.0 provides a fully-functional sample that enables you to build a custom application to list items, monitor auctions, integrate eBay search and perform inventory maintenance. 

You can download it for free directly from eBay:  There is also a good MSDN article describing it that you can read here.  Note that it works perfectly well with the free Visual Web Developer Express Edition development tool.

Below is a sample screen-shot showing active auction listings:

You can learn all about the application and download the source for it here.

  • Will this also work well with 1.1?

  • Hi Manish,

    Unfortunately the above starter kit runs on ASP.NET 2.0 (it uses master pages and a few other new features).

    From looking at the code, I think it was probably first built with ASP.NET 1.1. If you look on the Ebay site you might be able to find a V1.1 download.

    Hope this helps,


  • Starter kits are very useful since they contain clean code and re-usable modules.

  • I don t know man. I installed the starterKit. Then
    I copied the files and sub-directories to another directory. I made the new directory as a new virtual folder.
    Then I executed the sql script dirctly in SQL2005 management (My DB was created fine). HOWEVER, I get this error:
    Line 39:

    Source File: C:\Software\Net\StarterKits\eBay\inventory.aspx.vb Line: 37

    I even tried: and .....
    But no luck, I still can t see the inventory page.
    Thanks for your help guys.
