Hi, where do I configure the settings for the Related Items Widget, I have put the widget inside of the Responsive Design eBay Listing Template.

I want it to show by default “best match” / “best sellers” for my eBay store category it is listed in?

ie. if I have listed the item in my eBay store category called “Bits and Bobs” I want it to show the best sellers from my category “Bits and Bobs”

Thank you.

Howdy Rik,

The support team & support desk on WidgetChimp is always the best place to ask questions relating to WidgetChimp as they’re available between 09:00 & 17:00 every weekday and will get back to you a LOT faster than via the UE forums.

If you checkout the video tutorial library here https://widgetchimp.com/tools/ebay-templates-video-library and search for the word “related”, this covers the options for the current version of the related items widget.

Matt

PS. I say current version, a new version starts being built today, with all the feature requests that have come in over the past couple of months.

thanks Matt, I have had good service from Ruel over at WC but unfortunately I cannot get the related items widget to do what I want it to do so it is not cross promoting similar items, hence I ask here to see if other users have had success.

I look forward to the new version!

Howdy Rik,

Good to hear that.

The sucky limitations with the current version will be ironed out in the new version and a load of extra options as well (such as eBay category numbers (both primary & secondary), negative keywords, price ranging, motor part compatibility (in the 2nd release using Ktypes) and a whole host of other options).

Matt

That sounds good Matt. I would like to submit a request as well: a choice of default settings:

best match items from ebay category
best match items from ebay store category
best match items from item specific BRAND

Best regards as always

It is ok, after extensive experimentation I believe I have it fixed better now.

I use volo so have changed the code:

WC code:
var _etb={“ebayid”:”the_emporium_direct”,”sid”:”3″,”tid”:”7013″,”rlcid”:”0″,”rlkw”:””,”rlcid2″:”0″,”rlkw2″:””,”

New code:
var _etb={“ebayid”:”the_emporium_direct”,”sid”:”3″,”tid”:”7013″,”rlcid”:”0″,”rlkw”:”{{Publisher}}”,”rlcid2″:”0″,”rlkw2″:””,”

now the related widget shows similar items based on the internal inventory record publisher – hope this helps others.

Dave/Matt – is there a way to make this work in M2Epro?

cheers
