Ebay retail price (discount)

With this upgrade we provide possibility specify discount for your ebay items.

The module will transfer discount to ebay only if you specify percentage more that 0. PrestaShop product discount ignored and does use when sending the item to ebay.
Please notice that field used to indicate discount to original price send to ebay.
Example: your ebay price without discount is 200€ and discount percentage is 10%. Then the customer can purchase your product for 180€, product price before discount is 200€.

Out-of-Stock Feature

If you’re selling multiple identical items in a single fixed-price listing with Good ‘Til Cancelled as the listing duration, you can select the out-of-stock option.

When you enable the out-of-stock option:

  • All of your existing and future Good ‘Til Cancelled listings use the out-of-stock option until you disable the option.
  • When the quantity of the listing becomes 0, your listing stays active, but is hidden from search results. The quantity in the listing can become 0 either through buyer purchases or you can revise the listing and set the quantity to 0.
  • When you increase the quantity of items available, the listing is eligible again to appear in search results.
  • If you change the duration of your listing to anything other than Good ‘Til Cancelled, the listing is no longer out-of-stock enabled and ends when the quantity becomes 0.
  • You can still end your Good ‘Til Cancelled listing yourself at any time.

To use this functionality please activate option in your ebay account settings
