Now that Play/Rakuten has closed down it might be a good idea for M2EPro to replace it with a new platform for example ETSY, any idea’s anybody

Etsy would be an interesting one, although quite a niche market as 90% of ecommerce sellers wouldn’t have products suitable for Etsy. I have heard of other members using an Etsy extension though which apparently works well.

The Tesco marketplace would be a huge pain to integrate too (I’ve seen the data points they need) So not sure who else would be a good enough marketplace to warrant the integration expense at this time

Yep, tried ETSY with the program that everyone is on about that you can get off Magento Connect. It was not too bad in working about 80% of the time but we had difficulty in the Configurable Products that we tried listing. More often than not it would bounce back as there were to many items as the maximum amount it would deal with is 999 items. As we have lots of brands with lots of different colours the amount we were trying to send across to ETSY was to big. Also there was no way to send a smaller amount of our inventory over to them either so ending up being stuck scratching our heads trying to find a work around. Sending individual items would have taken a long time so we felt it wasn’t the right thing for us at the time. I was thinking if M2EPro started doing this program that they could put these kind of things in to the program that would get roung these problems like you can do with ebay or amazon
