I'm sure it worked when it was set up, but as above, ebay keep making changes to their site.



Working again today. VAT correct, as is the stock code. Product price includes shipping for some peculiar reason, but the invoice total is correct.

Haven't changed anything, but did end the listing on Thursday, relisted Saturday following a day off.

"All I would want is for the stock on my website to be linked to ebay items, so that if an item sold on ebay, the inventory on romancart will go down and also my stock on amazon."

This was working with multi-variation listings (listed directly within ebay) up until last week (when the multi-variation used the same product codes as specified in product manager). Even the VAT was calculated correctly :)

The way things are now I find unusable because most of my listings on ebay are multi choice listings and romancart only lists one item. It would be better to just link the inventory so if you have 500 items, you can have 500 on ebay and 500 listed on your website, not 250 in each.

I would very much like Romancart to be able to link to my existing listings on eBay, without the need to relist.

Some listings have been active for a few years and have thousands of sales history that I would not want to lose by having to relist through Romancart.

Mine is also an old eBay account.

Hi,

I'll look at the policies bit later. I have indeed opted in to anything that can be universally applied because whensomething changes yo only have to make one change instead of editing every single listing.

My ebay and Romancart VAT settings are the same.

Mine is a very old ebay account :)

Regards, Richard.

Hi,

This is because you have opted into business policies on ebay. Either you need to opt out of that or in the future it is saying that you should create profiles there. (This is an ebay message not RomanCart).

Ebay listings not generated by RomanCart can be problematic - especially with ebay merchants who have had an ebay account for a long time as older ebay accounts do not follow the rules of newer accounts.

We will be taking a look at this in the new year sometime as it is a really good feature! Presumably the vat issue is that your vat settings on the ebay sales don't match the vat settings on the cart?

Many Thanks
Support

With regard to my above comment re. VAT.

I can now clarify as I've just sold something listed directly through Romancart!

Romancart correctly displays the VAT in sales manager when the ebay listing was created in Romancart.

Romancart does not calculate/show the VAT when the ebay listing was created within ebay.

It would be lovely if it did :)

Furthermore, upon listing via Romancart, one is presented with the following warnings.

"Warning

Return Policy input not applicable.

The Return Policy field Refund in the input has been ignored.

Seller Profiles will soon be mandatory while creating a new listing for business policies opted in sellers.

Seller Profiles will soon be mandatory while creating a new listing. Support for Legacy Shipping, Payment and Returns fields will be going away for business policies opted in sellers"

Presumably the 'mandatory' aspect could disable the ebay listing function in future.

Perhaps someone could take a look.

Regards,

Richard.

Hi,

I only use Romancart, ebay and occasionally Amazon.

I haven't looked further than Romancart yet, I don't do enough elsewhere to justify it. Romancart still doesn't talk to my ebay account with regard to VAT.

The only thing that would persuade me away would be a system which integrated with my shippers so I can generate mailing labels automatically and offered some sort of google support.

Richard.
