Project for Website with Full Ebay API Stock Integration, to include the following functionality:
1. We need a “Stock Control Module” that updates both website and our Ebay Store in real time – if an item sells on either site it will need adjusting on the other.
a. Each item has a stock number which appears on Ebay under the custom field. The website will also contain this number.
2. We need a module, “Ebay Listing to Website Convertor Module” that can take a Turbo Lister format listing (Ebay Listing) and “translate” it into a website listing.
2.1 The module will need programming that takes specific elements of Ebay Listings and then “translates” them into website listings.
2.2 This module will need to take Ebay Listings and strip out all Ebay specific references and design html.
2.2.1 It may be that you can access the Ebay listings via the Ebay API then convert them to Website Listings – your expertise needed) – we suspect it may have to be done via Turbolister (see Additional Information below):
a. We will supply a before and after set of examples in html (Turbo Lister html and the website html we require from it).
b. We have an excel sheet that does something similar as an example, but would prefer a database to do the work. This module will be needed on an ongoing basis.
c. Turbo Lister will be the software that is used to generate the listings initially on Ebay, which are then copied to the website.
Turbolister is a special piece of software that Ebay supplies that creates Ebay Listings, our listings will always go on to the Ebay site first.
We have to access the data from Turbolister for our website listings, as it is the only way to get all of the information from Ebay as far as we can tell.
