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 very simple to implement.
This says planned "July 2013" any idea if this is going to happen? Makes total sense.

It would also be usefult to see which products are populated with an EAN in the Manage items list as it would help to know which of our products we can list to Amazon where they are necessary.

Great idea. Mapping to model number or sku would be useful.
Currently when using openbay any items imported from ebay do not have a model number -- which is normally a required field before you can save a product. (therefore more manual handling which are obviously trying to avoid :)
Glad to see this is planned.
