    • OpenBay Pro Revise eBay listing

      Hi Guys

      Just a trick question if your planning to do this, but would be ideal for all ebay user using openbay pro, currenlty there is no way of editing the ebay listing once it is live on ebay, with the exception of Title, Local stock level, Reserve level.

      We would like to change description, maybe the html template and other bits if at all possible from opencart.. be a fantastic addition if it will be done..

        • add shipping calculator option to eBay shipping

          I use shipping calculator for international shipping needs and free shipping for most items shipped for US customers, but openbay pro doesn't have these options.

          • Support standard auction format

            Currently only BIN sales are supported. A way to reserve stock for auction items listed to eBay could be possible.

            • Have a basic WYSIWYG template builder as part of the openbay package

              It would allow a novice user to create basic html templates with tools to insert the {tags} and format the layout, font, colours etc.

              • Be able to bundle products to be deducted in openstock/openbaypro Ebay/ Play and Amazon

                Be fantastic addition to openbaypro and openstock, if we could create a bundle say on eBay for product A,B and C in one listing then deduct that stock accordingly for example, if I were selling Jiffy Mail Bags single's, If I was to create a listing for a bundle of say 10, openstock would know to deduct 10 from stock not just one. so for example i had 33 in stock, and I had two listings on ebay one for the singles and the second for bundle i would be able to sell 3 x 10 bundles and three single…

                  • Support ebay OutOfStockControl setting to keep items listed when 0 stock

                    Ending the listing when out of stock really screws up the built-up interest in the listing - watchers, 'sold' figures, outside links etc.

                    It would be good to have the listings stay active when the item goes out of stock.This feature looks to implement this perfectly.

                    OutOfStockControl ebay setting as documented at;

                    • Update ebay prices using an upload in Opencart. Upload the prices using a csv file and these prices feed into ebay and update the prices.

                      Update ebay prices using an upload in Opencart. Upload the prices using a csv file and these prices feed into ebay and update the prices. At the moment you can change the price on an item in ebay by manually changing the price in the product, but it would be helpful if you could upload all the prices for ebay and then OpenBay could update the prices that have changed in eBay.

                      • Automatically link products based on their UPC/EAN/Barcode

                        We have over 1000 products in eBay that we need to import into OpenCart, then Amazon, then Play. Manually linking every single product one at a time will take months.

                        However, as all the products have a unique identifier (ie their Barcode), it would save an unimaginable amount of time if you simply pressed an "Auto-Link OpenCart Products to chosen store" button.

                        It would then find and match the barcode for every single product in the selected stores and create the relevant product links.

                        Ive seen the MySQL tables for the linking - and it looks like it should be…

                          • Take the ebay price from the product discount field

                            Instead of entering a new price when listing an item from opencart to eBay, allow a discounted price to be used (standard opencart behaviour). This could be assigned to a customer group named 'eBay' and wouldn't be visible to regular customers.
                            This would mean that ebay prices are stored in the database and re-listing would be simplified.

                              • Add the option to use ebays combined P&P profiles for shipping

                                On top of the shipping options, ebay also offer the option of creating combined shipping profiles for cheaper shipping when multiple items are purchased at the same time.

                                It would be good to have the option to select the ebay combined shipping profile to use when listing an item.

                                  eBay allows uploading watermarks over the top of images for copyright etc. Magento's M2EPro current supports this feature, so it would be great to have a similar feature in OpenBay Pro where we can upload a transparent watermark image that will be placed on top of the Product image.

                                  • Auto Link Items.

                                    My eBay titles and my product names in open cart are almost always identical. It would be great if exact matches were automatically entered in the "Link Items" tab of openBay. There should still be a click to confirm though, so that adjustments can be made manually.

                                    • set a shipping option in the settings instead of choosing every order

                                      When I mark an imported order from eBay as shipped I always get that list of 40 shipping options, and I only use one. Is there a way to set a standard shipping method in the openbay options that is selected by default? That would speed up order processing a lot! Thanks.

                                      • Add a default Amazon shipping method

                                        Allow there to be an option where you can select a default shipping method for Amazon.

                                        • support ‘schedule start time’ ebay feature

                                          Posting an ebay listing there is no option to schedule start time. If more than one person is responsible for the listing, and then would like to review it, that could be a problem.
