Hi,

I’m fairly new to magento and for the last couple of years i’ve been using channelgrabber, i’ve just tried to list a product with variations to ebay and for some reason the drop down box is showing with the names of the shade but the images underneath are not, can you help with this.

Thanks

Jay

Howdy Jay,

I think I understand what you mean, so to just to clarify:

You have a variation listing on eBa with the option called “Shades” (say pink green, yellow in the dropdown box). However when you select an option, the main image is not changing.

If that’s correct then this is going to be one of two things.

#1 The Simple products don’t have images on them (and or not enabled)
#2 Or the policy is not set to swap images images for the given attribute.

Bah and rather typing this out, I’ll whip a video together to show you, will be ~30 mins.

Great video guys. What about if you have 2 variable options.

i.e. colour and length.

My item I sell is in 2 coulours, black and white, and also in 2 lenths, short and medium.

I have 4 images for each of these…
An image showing a white one with short length.
An image showing a white one with medium length.
An image showing a black one with short length.
An image showing a black one with medium length.

Problem here is it only lists with 2 of the 4 images. The medium lengths shows the images of the short lengths.

Hi Ben,

You can only set one variation type to swap images on eBay, this is a limitation of eBay (but an acceptable one).

Also it sounds like it’s this feature request you need as well: http://support.m2epro.com/foru…..iations-in so that more than one image is added per variation.

Votes & a comment appreciated :)
