For the past two
years, I have been independently developing and running an online retail venue
using eBay and eBay Stores for a menís clothing store which I work for outside of
The newly released eBayer 6.0 currently provides an interface to handle the complete array of online store management functions, which was previously handled by various web-based applications. It will serve as a tool to cover all aspects necessary in running an efficient eBay store and incorporating it with the physical store location. For example, it allows a store manager to list items in the online store, while at the same time saving the item specifics for later use and reference. Not to mention, it combines the online details with details applicable to the actual physical store using style numbers, additional size details, and short descriptions for the store manager to utilize if necessary. Nest, it allows for easy removal of both items sold online and through the physical store. In other words, if an item was sold in the physical store, removing the item from inventory would also remove from the eBay store, if a duplicate does not exist in the store inventory; and similarly, if an item was sold online and the application is synced with eBay, eBayer 6.0 is built to check to see if a duplicate exists, and if so, it will re-list the item on eBay and update the appropriate information in the item that exists in the inventory. If a duplicate does not exist, it removes the entire item from the inventory to ensure that the same item is not sold in the physical store. Once a sale online is complete and the inventory is adjusted, the customer information for the buyer and the specifics on the item sold and the transaction are saved to the appropriate tables for later use. This information can then be used to identify likely customers for future offerings, as well as best selling items. Thus, the store is now capable of handling every necessary function to run and monitor a small-scale eBay store from a desktop application.
I hope you like the project, and thank you for viewing!
