  Any potential issues with duplicating listings e.g. from Amazon and Ebay?
Posted by: itoldusoandso - 10-15-2020, 09:43 PM - Forum: Classadlister Suggestions/Questions - Replies (1)

Have you ever come across and issue of eBay penalizing listings if same listings are duplicated across other sites? Apparently this used to be an issue where Ebay software bot would flag a listing and reduce its rank because the same listing was also listed on other sites like Amazon. Since the listing is basically replicated on Amazon, Ebay and other sites, eBay would think it's arbitrage.

It's what this post from Wed Aug 14 00:52:12 2019 is suggesting (bottom 1st page)

But because I use software to duplicate my Amazon listings on eBay, they have targeted me repeatedly without anyone human doing any manual checking or providing me with an appeal process or even way of contacting that team directly.

As always, I don't want to ask for more, since I am happy with what ClassAdlister offers. There is a proverb says: Don't look a gift horse in the mouth.  Anyhow, I think it would be an amazing idea to consider in the future Wink

  Custom Field Management - with filtering?
Posted by: itoldusoandso - 09-20-2020, 01:06 PM - Forum: Classadlister Suggestions/Questions - Replies (1)

Are the Custom Fields available with Filtering Criteria in ClassAdLister? 

Use case for me: 

My items are mostly English but some item listings will be translated to another language or two (e.g. German). I will then post the German version of the listing in German eBay. 

I am hoping to be then able to filter the German language listings to post them to German ebay.  QUESTION1 : So I am wondering if I can use Custom Filed (e.g. Language).  QUESTION 2: Is that Custom Field going to be accessible when I am importing things into ClassAdLister?  (in other words, can my imported CSV include the same field "Language" and ClassAdLister will import that as well?

If this approach doesn't work, that's OK, not a big deal...... as an alternative .....  I was thinking to create a "sub-location" under the location. e.g. English listing would be LOCTIONNAME_ENG.  It's not the right way of doing it but I guess it will enable me to do what I want.

  International shipping option for ebay?
Posted by: itoldusoandso - 09-14-2020, 12:47 PM - Forum: Classadlister Suggestions/Questions - Replies (1)

Wondering if there is a way in the table to add international flat shipping for an item. I ship 40% within Canada and 50% to US, so having option to add international shipping could be nice. But I get it, it's only Ebay where shipping can be populated so it may not be worth the amount of effort. But would be nice to have. I use flat US and Canada shipping quite often.

  OfferUp & Letgo Merger (+ donation question)
Posted by: nnasales - 08-31-2020, 05:56 PM - Forum: Classadlister Suggestions/Questions - Replies (2)

Now that the merger is final and we're having to transition to the OfferUp app, are there any plans to start supporting the app? I know that OfferUp requires you to use their app when listing, but I was wondering if this merger would change things on the technical side and make implementation possible.

I guess this is also to let you know that Letgo marketplace will close on Sept 21!

Also, I'm having some difficulties with the donation option on the app. When I click donate it turns into a loading graphic but never finishes loading and/or never links me to anything.

Thank you!

  Allow TITLE to be other than 1st column in import CSV
Posted by: thankyouclassadlister - 08-26-2020, 02:09 PM - Forum: Classadlister Suggestions/Questions - Replies (2)

I use Airtable to create my listings. I know this is not the Airtable user forum but I won't be able to make any suggestion for changes there because the issue I describe here is not a limitation of Airtable (Actually it is a database application by design so 1st column in database is always special). 

In my earlier post I described how to get AirTable working with ClassAdLister.  I create listings in Airtable and then use then Zapier and Google sheets and some manipulation to download data. So far so good...

However, I want to have 2 tables in Airtable. One is for data dump, the other is clean data ready for import. Here is what I have done:

In my Airtable database I have 2 tables. The 1st table is (called TABLE) where I dump new listings - either by typing in, or on mobile device or through a web-form of AirTable. Works well. The 2nd table is (called VIEW) is where the finished listings (line items) are copied. The trigger is condition - a checked checkbox in in one of the columns in the 1st table. When the listing line item has all complete information, I would press a check box beside it and the line will appear in the 2nd table. The way it works is my 2nd table is looking up information in the 1st table (LOOKUP function). The LOOKUP function looks up for a value in 1st table based on reference value in a field in the 2nd table. Then I have a filter setup in 2nd table to only show listings thad do have a checkmark in 1st table. 


Now the issue is, I want to create the export CSV file from the 2nd table (VIEW table). This has data ready to import into ClassAdLister. ClassAdLister requirement is the Import CSV file MUST be a Title field.  However, the way AirTable works, it doesn't allow me the Title field to be the first column in my 2nd table.  The reason is doesn't allow it because the 1st column in AirTable cannot have a LOOKUP function. It can have formula but not lookup from another field. LOOKUP is not available in the 1st column. 

So I can't have Title in the 1st column. The only way for me to deal with it is right now to open the CSV and manually swap columns. Not a big deal.

But I was wondering why ClassAdLister doesn't allow TITLE to be the 2nd or whatever column. It's looking for the "Title" field anyhow, so why would it need to be the 1st column in order for the import to work.

As I said, it's a bit specific my request, I don't want to ask for too much, it's a great application as it is no complains. 

Thank you. Here is the image of the lookup function:

  Multiple ebay sites?
Posted by: thankyouclassadlister - 08-23-2020, 05:44 PM - Forum: Classadlister Suggestions/Questions - Replies (1)

The app supports only one ebay site login right? 

Is there a way to have ebay.com and other site e.g. ebay.de in the app?

Ebay doesn't provide cross-site visibility. Posting items on COM site doesn't makes them visible on CA and CO.UK but not on other sites and vice versa. Ebay is rolling out managed payments and apparently that feature is included but it's invite only right now. 

I need to post to multiple sites because I have inventory in different locations in different countries and I need to be local. 

I can do that in one of the following ways:
- create a Clone of the app (e.g. using App Cloner or similar)
- install another instance into Island (or similar Workspace app)
- use something like Samsung Secure Folder
- or the the worst case scenario setup additional user on the device. 

All these options are good if I want to keep the inventory files separate.  That works for me fine. 

However, it may not be ideal if I had a large inventory of items and I wanted to post the same inventory to multiple ebay sites. To do that, I would have more than one copy of ClassAdLister each with full database of items. 

Would that work? 

Can I assign a Location in the app to a specific Ebay site? That would make sense.

I don't want to ask for too much, I mean this is a great app already. So if there is no plans to support multiple logins for ebay then not a big deal, I can work around it as mentioned earlier.
