Webinterpret in review for August 5, 2015
We’re back with another biweekly Webinterpret in Review article. This week we are launching a new Free VAT feature in our user dashboard, a tool that will give sellers a competitive edge when selling in the US, Canada and Australia. We have improved our Adaptive Translation System and would also like to take the time to remind all eBay sellers that some item will need GTINs as of September 1st. Read on for more…
- We will soon have a Free VAT feature in the user dashboard. Sellers will be able to remove VAT from the cost of their items, giving them a competitive edge in markets without VAT (Canada, the US, Australia). The feature will be available for German, French, Italian and UK sellers translisting items in the following marketplaces: Canada, US, Australia. Here’s how it will look:
- Our dimension converter has been improved for the French and Italian marketplaces.
- Our new HelpDesk (formerly known as MTS – Message Translation System) has been improved and is slowly being rolled out to all our users.
- We’d like remind eBay sellers that all new branded or refurbished items will require a Product Identifier number (GTIN) as of September 1st. eBay will block original items with missing Product Identifier numbers when they are relisted, newly listed or edited. Items translisted on foreign markets are dependent on original listings, so please make sure original items are properly setup. For more information please check our article on how Webinterpret handles Product Identifiers.
- On a similar note, we are working on ways to convert European product identifiers (EAN) to American product identifiers (UPC) when selling cross-border.
- Our Adaptive Translation System has been improved. When translations in our memory are modified, all foreign listings that use the expression will be automatically updated.
- We have vastly increased the amount of categories where we can translist items.
We have posted a variety of new articles:
