Does anyone have an update as to when the shop builder in Widget Chimp will become functional?
We’ve been told through raising a ticket “We do not have an exact ETA yet as to when the store builder will be out. Rest assured that it is our development team’s top priority.”
We’re in desperate need of a new eBay shop layout and would ideally like to be able to use Widget Chimp as opposed to using alternatives but the above message is very vague. Are we talking weeks or months in development as we need to plan what we do next?
We’ve just been super busy with a new course https://understandinge.com/version-2-magmi-course-due-next-week/ also if you pop on the weekly masterminds, you’ll find out the progress with the current activites here at UnderstandingE.
The shop builder is still be worked on, it’s quite a way from being ready for release though and I have no ETA on it at present, frankly speaking as my mind is elsewhere to ensure that the new Magmi course comes out asap.
Also just to add – is there an ETA on when Dynamic store categories will be added again to be used on the listing termplates?
We have been waiting for sometime now – this is one of the main reasons why we picked Widget Chimp in the first place only to find out its not available even though it said (and it still says) its possible??
I don’t doubt the promises Matt or Dave make – however i do believe it is unfair to list something as ready to use when it is not. I believe its a case of not having enough resources (man hours/capital) available to get tasks such as this completed as quickly as they would like.
I have been a Member since April 2015 – and i have never been able to use dyamic store categories once.
I hope this does not put you off from using Widget Chimp – but honesty is the best policy I’m afraid.
Unfortunately this is the response we’ve had from WidgetChimp support.
I’m afraid we do not have the ETA available for the shop builder yet as there as still a lot to revise and improve on that. But rest assured that its still being worked on and will let you know as soon as the completion date is available.
We are getting towards the crunch now in terms of needing a new eBay shop front and ideally don’t want to have to look elsewhere due to the integration with our existing WC templates.
Is Matt able to give an idea of Q1, 2, 3 or 4 of this year?
Im sure if they had a specific idea of timing they would have shared it with you, I think there is a lot of prioritising going on right now with regards to WidgetChimp and a few other ideas me and Matt have had regarding software.
Out of interest does your shop front get a lot of traffic compared with your listing pages?

Unfortunately eBay removed the traffic data at the end of June but up until that point we certainly received enough store front visits per day to justify having a fully customisable store front.
I believe eBay are planning on bringing back the traffic data with their new dashboard but we will see.
I haven’t heard of any updates on this John.
Maybe one for the WidgetChimp guys.
