2.1 – A complete redesign to boost your sales on eBay

After months of developement, we are proud to introduce the new version of our eBay module for PrestaShop : eBay Official 2. The module was totally redesigned to provide merchants with the best-to-date tool to list on eBay from PrestaShop.

The core of the module – the sync engine – was recoded entirely. Stock updates are now performed independantly from other data, to ensure stock accuracy even in case eBay would block updates of listing content. Updates are now performed asynchronously (background process). This makes it possible to continue working on PrestaShop while listing on eBay is in progress. Lastly, an error management system shows which products are rejected from eBay and the reason for it. Therefore, so you can make the necessary corrections and maximize inventory part live on eBay.

Ergonomics was fully redesigned, to make it easier to match your categories and products features, often considered as the most tedious work !

The new order import system helps you track the status of all your eBay orders (successfully imported or not).

 

Fast synchronisation, including for large inventories

New sync engine can support high volumes

  Available in all countries where eBay is available

You’re not limited anymore in cross border !

  Listing rejection detection system

Make the necessary adjustments on products to maximize inventory publised on eBay
