Suggestions for eBay Integration

39 votes
Other eBay listing packages permit basic scripting / logic functions in their eBay template designs, allowing for pre-listing processing of the listing design: if / then / else etc.

OpenBayPro for example has adopted the PHP based Twig template engine for use in its eBay listings (http://twig.sensiolabs.org).

So for example even with basic functionality, someone selling furniture and clothes (!) on eBay could design a generic cross-site template for all their M2E listings that included the following to check which category the listing was being submitted in:

if {ebay_category} = "Furniture"

$graphic == "furniture_icon.jpg"

else

$graphic == "jumpers.jpg"



OK so selling furniture and clothes is an unlikely combination, but it was to make the point that having programatic control in eBay listing designs would be really handy, and make for much less maintenance of multiple listing designs for separate categories and other use cases.

This functionality is desperately needed

Sorely lacking feature coming from tools like eSellerPro, ChannelAdvisor, etc
