Currently the module does not supports any type of stock level synchronization.
We plan to add this functionality in a future module version.


Is it also possible to add other carriers like DHL Or TNT for dutch market ?


Shipping methods DHL and TNT is supported for Netherlands Marketplace as International Shipping.
You can check it on our Demo.
1) Create New Selling Profile
2) In opened window select "Netherlands" Marketplace.
3) On tab "Shipping" look and all available shipping methods.

Hello Involic,

Well your module would be interesting when it has the sync option.
If the module would have this option i would probably buy the module as it looks great but it needs the sync option.
Will wait for a future update off your module.

Best regards,

ysco..

Bought this great module and installed it without any problem! However I want to know some more.

How long takes it for Marketplace Synchronization (example broadband) is done?
Minutes, hours or days?

I have a Dutch Presta Shop and a Dutch eBay (shop) account. To connect my eBay Account it isn't possible with sandbox and it don't brings me to my Dutch login but on an English eBay login page.

I use prestashop 1.4.3

Some help will be great!

This module looks tremendous - I have a question

 

All our products have shipping costs based on weight (they are generally small, made of metal so it is the weight that is the over riding factor)

 

In prestashop I add the product weight, then use the weight ranges so that prestashop calculates the shipping costs for each item

 

Is this information passed to ebay? or do I have to re-create the shipping costs somehow?

 

One more question

 

We need three shipping pricing sytsems

Domestic

International - Europe

International rest of the world

 

Is this possible?

Thank you for your interest to our module. Currently we not support shipping cost based on weight. Only flat rate shipping is supported.

Adding calculated shipping in top of our priority. In next version we will implement it.

Also we plan to extend configuration for International shipping. On current version we allow customer select country where shipping is possible for all checked shipping methods. So unfortunately currently not possible set separate shipping cost for Europe and rest of the world.

 

You can try use our demo on http://prestabay-demo.involic.com/backend/ and create new 'Selling Profile'. You will see what settings available for configure shipping.

Thanks for your response. I have had a play with he demo, and I am quite impressed. As we ship worldwide from ebay, we really need that third option. Any ideas how long before implementation?

 

In the meantime,

 

1) if I install the module, upload the products to ebay, can I still manually edit them on ebay tto put that third shipping option in - or while it be over ridden every time I sync?

 

2) We quite often have to combine purchases on ebay and send out a new invoice with ammended shipping costs - how would this work with this module?

 

3) As you don;t do shipping on weight, am i right in thinking that whatever item i add to ebay I have to manually add the shipping costs for regardless of what is in prestashop (I know I can group them sing profiles) - I suppose the question is really do I have to define a profile for each shipping cost, then add the appropriate items into that profile (Very messy) or if i leave the profile without shipping costs what happens? It looks like I have to have one profile for each shipping cost within each product tyope / shop category etc. This is hard to explain:( Say we have some m6 nuts, 6mm u-bolts, a plastic pipe clamp and a washer all in different categories (on ebay) but all at the same shipping cost. I will need to have 4 profiles (one for each product type all linked with the shipping cost). Then we have all the 8mm stuff - same categories but costs more to post so I will then need to create another four proflles for the new shipping cost - does that make sense?

Yes you possible edit your item on eBay. But on each synchronization that call revise for target item information is rewrite by PrestaBay module.

 

2) We quite often have to combine purchases on ebay and send out a new invoice with ammended shipping costs - how would this work with this module?

If you tell about combination order on eBay it supported on PrestaBay module. Created new order that has correct information about purchase.

PrestaBay module, same as eBay, required that you enter at least one shipping method. Without it item not listed to eBay. You need specify shipping methods in each "Selling Profile". This is not very usable so we plan to move all shipping settings to separate 'Shipping Template'.

Just more explanation about 'Selling Profile'. Each profile can be apply to any count of 'Selling List'. Each 'Selling List' work in two modes: first is product mapping, second category mapping.

 

On product mapping you select yourself what product need to send to eBay on this 'Selling List' using connected 'Selling Profile'.

 

On category mapping all product from selected category transfered to eBay. When new product put to category it also send to eBay, when product leave category it removed from eBay (such behavior disabled by default).

 

Usually you create 'Selling Profile' for each primary category on eBay where you sell items.

 

Hope we answer to your questions.

You are being very helpful

 

We definitely need Domestic / Europe / Rest of the world shipping. I had hoped we could manually add the third tier, but if a sync will overwrite then it would not work

 

We will have to wait until you have this implemented

 

Can you give me a very rough ideas as to how long tt may be before this is implemented?

We plan to release next version near end of December. All depends the number of request from our customer.

 

I hope you can add this feature soon.

 

My products have three different costs for shipping internationally, are now very limited with only a fee.

 

PrestabBay is a module that has an exceptional potential, and updates to improve it even more.

Today we publish micro update to our module. In this update we activate filter on adding product grid and add new column reference. Also we add possibility to insert multi-language variables to description template.

For set specific language into description template need to add special option with number to variable.

For example:

[product_description(1)] or [product_name(1)] or [product_name(2)]

 

Result you can see on page

http://cgi.sandbox.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=110094373583

 

On this example 'number' is language id. Available id of languages you can find on PrestaShop page Tool->Languages.

 

Those who are interested in this update can update their install by following our manual http://prestabay.involic.com/HowToUpgrade

Thank you for waiting. You need just clear eBay account cache. You can do it on 'Configuration Information' section. After this new categories will be loaded to 'Selling Profile'

A couple more thoughts :)

 

1) When prestabay and ebay sync does it also update prices on ebay or just qty?

2) We have a lot of selling lists, is it possible to make it so that I can "revise" all lists together (or on selection) rather than having to go into each one to do it separately?

 

Ta!

1) Currently we update only QTY. Also it's good idea to update also product price. We will think of possibility to implement it

 

2) Unfortunately latest version no support this. Currently you have possibility revise all active item in each 'Selling List' (using mass-action drop-down). Hope in next version such possibility will be available.

I am facing similar issues, items are not sent to eBay.es, nor are they revised. Problem started today, yesterday all was fine.

 

A prompt reply would be appreciated.

I know QTY is syncronised when there is a sale, and that i works in both directions. But, what will happen is I make manual adjustments to stock levels on Prestashop?

 

So

 

10 items in Prestashop, 10 in Ebay. Get a sale in Prestashop and both quantities are adjusted to 9. If I then make a manual adjustment to stock in Prestabay to say 20, is that also propagated to ebay?

Short answer 'Yes'. It also need to be update QTY on edit but only if you change qty throw PrestaShop interface.

 

In details happen next situation:

1) PrestaShop - 10 QTY, eBay - 10 QTY

2) Sale on PrestaShop: PS - 9, eBay - 10, eBay qty change - "-1"

3) Synchronization: PS - 9, eBay - 9

4) Change PS "+11". PS - 20, eBay - 9, eBay qty change - "+11"

5) Synchronization: PS - 20, eBay - 20

 

Situation when no synchronization between sale and manual update:

 

1) PrestaShop - 10 QTY, eBay - 10 QTY

2) Sale on PrestaShop: PS - 9, eBay - 10, eBay qty change - "-1"

3) Change PS "+11". PS - 20, eBay - 10, eBay qty change - "+11" + "-1" = "+10"

4) Synchronization: PS - 20, eBay - 20

Thank you for your interest to our module.

Unfortunately PrestaShop version 1.x and 2.x not supported and we don't have any estimation date when this support will be available.

We are looking for possibility to create very simple version of PrestaBay (that support only list product) that support PrestaShop version 1.x and 2.x but it will not be earlier that February 2012.
