Some thought of unknown worth..

I note that eBay.AU developed a free addon for wordpress's Woocommerce.

My research indicated that the WP/Woocomme thing was very much not a great way to go.
So I'm thinking it may be better to get eBay dev itself to write an addon for CSC rather than CSC for eBay.

Perhaps eBay would then have the resources to keep the addon updated each time they change the API operation.

Have used the Ebay sync addon before to upload products and sync with Ebay, this was back in DEC 2017. 

 

Just tried to upload 26 new products from CS Cart to Ebay and have many errors, such as:

 

Invalid <PostagePackage>.

The server specified by ExternalPictureURL is not responding

Start tag expected, '<' not found

DOCTYPE improperly terminated

SYSTEM or PUBLIC, the URI is missing

SystemLiteral " or ' expected

Space required after the Public Identifier

 

So it appears this addon is now outdated, is there going to be any updates on this?

 

PUBLIC, the Public Identifier is missing

That would require them to actually update the product instead of letting it sit and rot.  So I highly doubt it.  Maybe, 5, 6 years from now.

Very disappointed with this.... its broken and basically does not work anymore. 

 

All the products and sync is giving errors.... easier to just upload 1 by 1 to eBay...

So I thought that I would use this add-on to add more products to my ebay store.  I thought $125 one time fee isn't too bad.  CS-Cart took my $125.  They sent me a license number. But I couldn't get it to work, the documentation stated that I needed to enter the license number into the box under settings.  While searching for documentation I find a new release notice for 4.4.1 or something that states that they no longer charge for the add-on and a license is no longer required.   I'm blown away by this.  There is a product page asking for $125 for an add-on that is now free and doesn't appear to work.

Ask cscart to refund the cost. Its odd that there is still a page to purchase from.

Even more disconcerting is that the eBay addon is still part of the standard distro.

This seems unethical as csc know about the issues and still advertise ebay sync capability!

A long time has passed...  is the ebay addon now working ok in the latest updates 4.11.x ?
Is the lack of comments on the forum due to it now working well,  or did we all just give up on it?

My renewed interest is triggered by the Product Variations being out of Beta. My understanding is that to make eBay sync work,  product options needed to be treated as variations. I hoped csc may have taken the next logical step,  and update the eBay addon.

Or more likely you mean, "Stopped using CS-cart because eBay addon was never updated" ?

You could always inquire of developers who might be willing to work on the addon so that it works according to your needs.  I personally wouldn't touch it.  It is very fragile code and cost/risk of change far exceeds the budgets of most individuals here.  Not all of that is cs-cart's issue.  Ebay and Amazon are notorious for producing an API or interface document and then 6 months later declare it as obsolete requiring developers to start over from square one.  Not supportable by a small business developer to productize.  Unfortunately cs-cart is too small a player in the ecommerce market to have any weight to throw.

I have gotten most of the add-on working but I need to sync the quantity of the products that are active via cron. I figured out how to do this with orders but not products.  

 

Can anyone help?

 

Thanks

Well , our main issue with eBay is inventory control. So how about this idea...
A more simple addon that just syncs orders to cscart orders.

That is, an eBay order is sent to cscart with its list of Product ID's is linked to the CSC site.

The eBay product is described and listed via the eBay web site, and may be a kit with some options.

The eBay product might be a kit made up of 4 different products, all designed to fit together.

The CSCart product is a Main product plus a number of Required products to make up that same kit.

It might even be a hidden product on csc.
Basically we just need to link eBay ID to CSC ID.

Of course it gets more complicated because theres a need to link prices and availability etc.

I think ebay make an addon for Magento (rather than the oter way around. Maybe that will finish now they've sold it to Adobe.
