Hello Matt/Dave
Firstly thanks for the detailed guides that you provide, so detailed that this is my first direct enquiry for some time. I now have a fully functioning online business thanks to understandinge, however I now seek direct help having run into an issue that after much searching I cannot find any conclusive answer to, the problem is listing to eBay using M2epro.
A bit of background, I sell printer cartridges and computer equipment(IT), I get Data Feeds into Magento, these data feeds are (for the majority) provided by Icecat. The data feeds contain descriptions and specifications contained within an iframe, these descriptions are then imported into description attribute/field within Magento. The problem comes to light when I use the understanige ebay template, I have set a placement in the template to insert #description#. All OK except I get the error message Your listing cannot contain javascript (“.cookie”, “cookie(“, “replace(“, IFRAME, META, or includes), cookies or base href. This means as much of 50% of my listings do not get to ebay. Yet when I look around eBay I can find the same products listed with the iframe displayed, I’ve opened inspect element and can see that they’ve used iframes.
Is there a way of getting the iframe included in my listings?

If you need to analyse the issue compare my listing 251678858919
to another sellers listing 141241514007

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Hi Ged,

IFrames is one place I won’t go I’m afraid. Also looking at that sellers listing they’re not using an iframe, that data they have, has been listed with when they made the listing.

Hello Matt, I’ve been thinking about this from a different angle, ‘the EAN’.
It appears to me that eBay will populate the description with details from its database if an EAN is provided. If this is the case then I can use eBay’s description instead of the Data providers (Icecat).
I’ve found further down the selling page the option of ‘Use Description From eBay Catalog’, so if this is the case I would need to look at altering the description in Listing/selling/description source, any advice on how to include withing the understandinge listing template.

Howdy Ged,

This wouldn’t affect the template area as using a ePID would add in the extra product information above the listing where the item specifics are.

An example is here: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/151008270113
