Suggestions for eBay Integration

This would server 2 important purposes ...

1) Prevent the item being sold on Magento before the auction ended.

2) Prevent a savvy bidder just ordering from our website and circumnavigating the auction.

Remember that as soon as somebody places a bid (over the reserve price) then the item's likely to have been sold, either to that bidder or to somebody who outbids them.

THis is a MUST TO HAVE feature. I have lots of returns which I have to sell as used but at the moment I am not able to do that . Also , Somehow we need to know when the product is sold via auction , something that we can see in Orders page because when warehouse staff is processing the order they need to know when to send a new item which was sold via Buy it now and when to send the used one sold at auction.

At the moment , I have to created new products in magento with different sku and put them for auction but this is time consuming.

This is how I would like to see this handled:

When [number of eBay Auction bids] > 0, minus one from Magento stock if any of these two things are true:

(1)

- ( [current bid] - [eBay fees] - [shipping costs] + [shipping charge] ) > ( [magento price] - [shipping costs] - [eBay cancellation fee] + [shipping charge] )

OR

(2)

- [Auction time left in hours] <= 12

I'm not sure how this get handled right now but I couldn't find mention in the manual.

Thanks!

Has this been done, or is there a way to do this?

I would like exactly this.
