Auction Lister going Live!

 Date: Thursday 18 March, 2010
News Content

There is still a little more work to be done on the Auction Lister software before we can release a patch for osCommerce, but functionally wise, we are now starting to use the software to both manage and start auctions on eBay Australia.

So far, there are 3 fundamental limitations in the eBay API :-
  1. Can not disable eBay's checkout. The patch is designed to have the buyer checkout via the osCommerce shopping cart. This allows you to provide payment and shipping options to the buyer the same as non-auction customers. However, there is no way to disable eBay's checkout. We have no work-a-round for this limitation.
  2. Must include PayPal as a payment option for an auction. This follows on from the first limitation. eBay wants to make sure that a buyer can checkout via eBay. However, we want the buyer to checkout via osCommerce. We have no work-a-around for this limitation.
  3. Must specify a shipping method for an auction. Similar to limitation 2, eBay wants to make sure that a buyer can checkout via eBay. As a work-a-round, we are forced to specify free Local Pickup as a shipping option, so that, if the buyer does checkout via eBay, the only shipping option they will get is free Local Pickup. This is not optimal, as not everyone will want to offer free Local Pickup. For us, this is not really a problem as we allow for free Local Pickup's already.
We hope that eBay will provide some solutions to these limitations in the near future. However, we are not holding our breath!

We should note that we are not sure if the same limitations exists for eBay in other countries.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.
