That would be nice too. Id rather have ebay first though.

Agree, in the UK the Amazon market place is much more profitable than eBay. We spend silly amounts of time manually updating the Amazon interface but its essential as our Amazon sales are 20 times the sales we pick up on eBay.

As far as the integrating with ebay:

If you are planning on having that feature enabled for the multi-vendor edition, you will have to take something into consideration:

1) The ability to set two sets of percent fees that the site charges the vendor (one for regular purchases through the ISC shop directly, the other through ebay)

2) The ability to set a pre-pay "credit" amount that the vendor can work off of to list their items in the ebay store. That will deduct based on the listing fee.

If these will not be doable, a different idea will have to be developed of how is the best way to integrate the multi-vendor into ebay in order that the vendor and the site owner both benefit.

Looking over the different fees, it appears that Amazon Marketplace would be easier to integrate to.

Being that there are no listing fees and the commission fee is more set, there would be less changes that would need to be made between an item listed on your ISC shop and one on amazon.

Check this out, this company has a normal store website at bhfo.com and they also have a page that looks like the catalog on their website but it's showing all their eBay items. http://us.search.bhfo.com/Default.aspx

This looks like a pretty sweet ebay listing tool http://www.inkfrog.com/tour.html

Another suggesting: When I list items on eBay, sometimes I list them in bulk. For example on my website i sell one item for 10$ but on ebay i'll sell 3 of those for 30 or something like that. Then the item would need it's own description and another picture to show the 3 pack. Will that be possible with ISC ebay integration?

Sadly it's completely USA centric and is a classic example of what I'd expect of an implementation that doesn't think it all the way through.

To qualify that, it's great if you are based in the USA and using eBay.com and want to list on other sites throughout the world that are supported but if you are based outside of there it's sorely lacking in localisation support.

The core problem I found with it is that all the fees, links to help docs, etc... are based around eBay.com so if you create a listing for .co.uk you could be getting charged a lot more or less than is listed.


It's a great tool, from the look of it but until they can make the system completely localised according to the target site it just won't swing for me.. which is a real shame.
