Morning

I may be wrong but is it better to have a separate root category on your site for your ebay listings, or keep it using the normal listing that appear on your site.

Ideally i would like to see the difference in customers on where they order ebay, my site, amazon, play etc?

With a massive amount of stock wouldent that complicate things….

Howdy Dom,

Use store views for this (a tutorial was recorded for this on wednesday, it’s sat in editing at the atm).

With regards to using separate category structures, I’d personally suggest using just the one and marking any marketplace centric categories as inactive.

The reason for this? Indexing.

The less work that needs to be done by the indexers the better, having separate category structures = more work.

Does that make sense Dom?

Ahh well done Matt

Its all coming back to me re store views, did it right at the beginning and for the life of me couldent remember it.

Yeah dont need 100k products indexing 5 times.

Will add that to my list another 15 mins ……

so if you create a store view ie ebay how you would allocate any orders coming from ebay to use that tag?

Hi Dom,

See the account settings in Sell on eBay > Confg > Accounts

You can also set them per listing group as well.
