Hi there,

At present all of my eBay listings have been created and listed to ebay by Turbolister. I have been using the WidgetChimp Template V2 for all of these. Now, since it will be necessary to update this template with V3 of the WidgetChimp template I would like to know the best method of achieving this.

So, is it possible to download my current ebay listings into the M2EPro 3rd Party lisings section and then to apply the new WidgetChimp template to them (a mass update) and then to revise the live listings on eBay using M2EPro?

At this time I prefer to keep existing eBay listings as 3rd party only. Apologies if this question has already been asked, I did look but couldn’t see anything.

Thanks

andrew

Hi Andrew,

For a question like this you are best contacting Widget Chimp support directly.

I spent over an hour on live chat with Widget Chimp support yesterday who could not provide a solution for this and could not tell me when the bulk revision tool to convert Widget Chimp 2 to Widget Chimp 3 would be available.

We’re getting very worried now that this won’t be ready in time for the Active Content ban and we’ve started looking at an alternative template provider.

Hi John,

I spoke with Matt about this yesterday. He has been busy working on some new software but now that there is a definitive date for active content, he is going to be looking at the bulk revise tool for V3 as a matter of urgency.

Obviously at this stage I am unsure as to what is involved with this, coding wise, so would be unable to give a date, however I do know he is treating it as urgent.

Many Thanks

Dave

Any update on this please. I downloaded the script for my v3 template and pasted it in m2e description and when i revised one of the listings on ebay the template changed but not all the sectioned showed correctly, ie the image changed to an image of pencils which I assume is a default image and my description didn’t show, etc.
Any assistance with this would be appreciated.
Also when in June is active content being switched off, does anyone know the exact date so we know how much time exactly we have?
Thanks in advance.

For these specific questions about WidgetChimp you are best opening a ticket with the team over there and including any screenshots you can to help.

As for the actual date, TameBay reported the 7th of June for the date where Active Content will stop.

I have opened a ticket but responses are very slow and so far not solved so I thought I’d post in here too – trying to get ahead of myself especially as the cut off date is now looming fast. I was also unable to add the two screenshots in Widgetchimp help for some reason, they uploaded but didn’t send.
I think I need to update M2e pro but I am locked out of Connect Manager for some reason so cannot update it.

To give you an update Alison, Matt is super close to finishing the bulk revise part and if everything goes well it should be completed by end of play today.

Apologies you have experienced some slow responses but I imagine Matt is telling the team to hang fire until he has something definitively ready and working.

If there is one thing I do know is that Matt will work all day and night to get this sorted with enough time for you to be able to update before the 7th.
