Weekly Patch H459 -  11 December 2013


Module Title Description
eBay Max Listed Quantity, End When Stock and Stock Percentage
  1. Manual Data import now works for old and new integration types
  2. Item specific values can be imported and exported through the eBay mapping tool from the right click menu.
  3. Item specific values are now visible in the eBay mapping log
  4. If using SKU mapping, old extended properties are converted to be used by the new routines upon a data import.
All updates to the item specific values have to be corrected through either the manual data import tool or the import tool contained within the eBay mapping tool
If not using SKU mapping, the Max Listed Quantity property will still be visible against the stock item. However changing them directly or through the extended properties import will not affect the listing.
