About to update to 4.x and am interested in the eBay addon. I really do not want to drop $125 on something without actually seeing how it works. Are there any video's out there showing it in action?

To be honest with you, it doesn't work very well and lacks a lot of features. I would wait until they upgrade the addon and fix bugs before buying it. It's still a beta product as far as I'm concerned.

Ahhh. I really only need it for basic listing. I do not care about like different variations, colors, that type of thing, if that is the issues

That is a bit strange. Actually it was released and already in production stage. Can you point to the bugs you are talking about? Also please let me know the features that are not included in ebay add-on?

There's not a lot you would really see from a video. The way the listing looks is totally standard eBay unless you modify the eBay description in CS Cart with HTML. The knowledge base article describes the settings - http://kb.cs-cart.co...synchronization

As salvag says though it does have issues. Options don't work properly and you can't export a product more than once so changes have to be made at both ends.

Some bugs that were reported in the Beta test stage seem to be just ignored in the rush to release the product.

parodius420,

There is no video tutorial at the moment. But you can find a detailed tutorial in KB: http://kb.cs-cart.co...synchronization
You are free to testdrive the add-on using personal demo: https://www.cs-cart....sonal-demo.html

I have posted the issues many times

1. Every time I publish to ebay, I get many errors. I reported this in help desk but was just told to "check my logs"
2. Variant images aren't uploaded to ebay
3. You cannot export an item more than once. This is a huge flaw
4. There is no easy way to customize the appearance of ebay listings in bulk. You have to do it product by product.
5. There seems to be no option to customize the length of the auction? It always defaults to 7 days

I realize that the addon is no longer in official beta, but it still feels like it should be.

Wow, bummer, I was really holding out hope for this ebay function. It is one of the big things we were hoping to use at some point with version 4. I guess with some of the issues/bugs I'm having with the base cs-cart 4 I shouldn't be surprised. Right now our focus has just been to get the base to work because it has been a pretty large step backward from 2.2.5 so far....primarily because of bugs.

On this ebay function I will admit, a video would be nice to see the functionality but hearing from more of what the actual users have to say is so much better. I for one would love to hear from more who are using this ebay function. Even with the bugs are you able to list and sell items?

Quite honestly, this sounds like another item that was moved out of the "beta" arena too early. Well, for that matter, before they tried to tackle this ebay add-on they really should have gotten the bugs worked out a little more for version 4.
Regards,
Jim

Dear salvag,

1. Every time I publish to ebay, I get many errors. I reported this in help desk but was just told to "check my logs"

Fixed. To apply the fix download the latest version and replace your files.

2. Variant images aren't uploaded to ebay

Not a bug actually, but the feature required for those who use options. Will be added next week.

3. You cannot export an item more than once. This is a huge flaw

Is this the same problem as 1)?

Anyway we are going to improve export process so you can easily stop/relist items from CS-Cart backend.

4. There is no easy way to customize the appearance of ebay listings in bulk. You have to do it product by product.

What are the appearance options do you mean. There are separate properties description and name for ebay listing, but these fields are more like an extra feature. So there is no plan to add the to bulk edit.

5. There seems to be no option to customize the length of the auction? It always defaults to 7 days

Yes there is always 7 days. We will add this feature next week.

Thank you for your great feedback. I will let you know in this thread when the version with these fixes will be released.
The more people use this add-on the more features we can add.

Thank you. Concerning the appearance of ebay listings it would be great if there was a way to set a default template in which the item description woudk be inserted into.

I have a nice graphical template that I use for all my listings, but currently I have to copy and paste it into each seperate item that I want to export.

Atleast add the "ebay description" field to the bulk editor.

It's really great to see you are fixing these issues!

It is also good to hear you are willing to add features. My fear would be your comment that...

The more people use this add-on the more features we can add.


How long will this last? While in the base features of CS-Cart you do add and change features likewise you have become somewhat frequent at telling us that "something works as designed" and that we can pay to have something added on a custom basis.

I tried to set up an account on the demo link you shared but it still requires us to set up a developers account. We do not have one right now. Didn't really want to set one up until we saw the functionality of this and if you are going to truly continue the development or it.

One of the things I could not see in the demo is if there is a specific place to put the "ebay title" field for each product so you can put what you want your ebay title to say when the item is posted. Items you list on ebay tend to have way different titles than what you have on your site. Primarily because ebay only searches the title and our website searches the title and description.
Regards,
Jim

You can edit the ebay title but it has to be done product by product. They need to add both "ebay title" and "ebay description" to the bulk editor.

Friends,

I have great news. We have updated the ebay add-on. Here are the improvements:
[+] The RelistItem method added. (now you can re-upload your items to ebay)
[+] New option for duration of product availability for sale on eBay was added.
[+] Ability to export option images added.
[+] Ability to upload additional images added.
[*] The 'Package' package type was renamed to 'Package/thick envelope'.
[!] Product weight was calculated incorrectly. Fixed.
[!] SQL error occurred on product export to eBay performed by a store admin. Fixed.

In order to update you current ebay without reinstalling it (reinstall - will delete all current ebay templates) please do the following:
1) Download the updated version of ebay add-on from your File area
2) Replace your files with these from new package.
3) Restore SQL patch from Administration -> Database -> Restore page. (you can download sql patch here)
