Hello,
first of all – thanks for the great video tutorials. They helped me a lot. I understand that I can use CSS classes within the custom description and after declaring these I can add them in the HTML code below to have a nice description of the product I want to sell.

In most cases I see eBay sellers who include a lot more, like a navigation that includes links to other categories, shows more offers that the shop has etc. As you can see here for example:

http://www.ebay.de/itm/VICTOR-…..#038;rt=nc

How can I create such an template with additional navigation / offer elements? For example I want to show other products of the same brand etc.?

Howdy Torben,

See WidgetChimp as this has that and a whole heap more than just sidebars.

A video on what you can do is at the top of this page https://widgetchimp.com/responsive-ebay-listing-templates/

Hey Matt,
thanks – I noticed WidgetChimp, but there must be also another way to implement this by myself, right?

Howdy Torben,

Oh of course, you’ll need to design your own template and add in the details as needed.

Hey Matt,
thank – I already know that I can use HTML and insert Tags as #description# to add the description of the respective article. But how can I access other eBay related stuff as the eBay store categories etc..? So how can I access dynamic variables which are not product, but shop related?

Hi Torben,

Those additional options aren’t available in the template keywords from M2EPro, so you would need to add them in yourself, either by hard coding or locating a widget that can do this for you.

Thanks Matt.

I have two other issues with M2EPro currently:

1. Strange is, that the product has a price of 33,50 Euro – the setting says that the eBay price should be the price + 3,99 Euro. eBay shows 36,50 Euro – how can that be?

2. The price on eBay is different to the ones in Magento, but when I use the #price# – Tag in the Template it shows a different price in the template than which is eBay listing at the top. Template shows 33,50, eBay shows 36,50. I thought this might be solved with the “M2E Pro Attribute – list of M2E listing’s settings.” which I can use in the custom description editor, but this “M2E Pro Attribute” dropdown is not shown in my Magento. Do you know whats wrong here?

Edit: I solved the first one – I had to type 3.99 instead of 3,99!

Howdy Torben,

Try #value[buy_it_now_price]# instead. This and numerous others are available from the “Custom Description Inserts” boxes below the template description part of the description policy in M2Epro.

If that still comes out incorrectly, one for M2EPro support as that’ll be a bug with their calculated pricing.

Hey Matt,
thanks – however below the custom description I see only the magenta / product attributes. I do not have a dropdown for the m2e attributes. Do you know why i can not see the m2e attribute dropdown field?

Hi Torben,

Besides you using a really old version of M2EPro, I have no idea.

Do check that you’re in the right place which is Sell on eBay > Configuration > Policies > Pick a description Policy > Description section > Set it as a custom one > Under the big text box there is the section to select keywords and insert them into the listing.

See the image below.
