Application Of Price Rule-
When Admin has set ‘eBay Price Rule Applicable For‘ Export Products-
For instance: we have a price rule of increase in price at a fixed rate of $5 with a price range of $1-$100. On Bagisto end, we create a product with a price of $45 as shown in the below image.
Then as we export this product to ebay the price will automatically be incremented to $50 as per the rule as shown in the below image.
However, the same rule will act opposite if we import the same product from eBay to the Bagisto store.
For example: If you have a product with $60 on eBay store and the price rule is set as of the decrease in price at a fixed rate of $2 with a price range of $1-$100.
Now as we import the product to Bagisto store the price of the product at Bagisto end will be $58.
When Admin has set ‘eBay Price Rule Applicable For‘ Import Products-
Now the admin has the same price rule of increase in price at a fixed rate of $5 with a price range of $1-$100. The product is now on eBay at the price of $45 as shown in the below image.
Now, if the product gets imported the price of the product at the Bagisto store will be incremented by $5 as shown below.
Note** The same rule will act opposite if we export the same product from eBay to the Bagisto store.
For instance: If you have a product with $45 and the price rule is set as of the decrease at price at a fixed rate of $5 with a price range of $1-$100. So as we import the product to eBay the price of the product at eBay end will be $40.
eBay Product Condition as Category
At the time of Category mapping, eBay Product Condition and Specification will be created as Product attributes in Bagisto and these attributes label will be followed by eBay category name from where eBay condition and specification came.
eBay specification option will come for every product in the back-end while editing or adding any new product. In eBay specification, admin can see various attributes with the label.
eBay Variation management
eBay variation will be created as Super attributes while importing the eBay products (used in configurable products) in Bagisto and these super attributes label will be followed by eBay category name from where eBay variation came.
