Hi, what exactly is the idea of this addon? Why would anyone need to import only prouducts alone? I suppose you would want to name your addon migrate ebay to cs-cart..

Dear Darius,

The add-on goal is to copy only the products and their descriptions from eBay to CS-Cart store. Also it can be used for update products in CS-Cart store in case the eBay contains more exact information.

The Import from eBay can be really useful for those who already have some products on eBay and want to start a new project with CS-Cart or Multi-Vendor.

Ok understand. But I bet that most people would be willing to export to ebay then from ebay to cs-cart.

Tastes differ :-)

We do our best to meet all our customers possible needs.

Dear Friends,

We expanded the list of data fields imported from eBay. The product weight is also available now/

Thank you.

Does this addon still work?? Was wondering because last release was Version 1.0 on Feb 12, 2018.

Would this still work well on 4.14.x?
