Webinterpret in review for July 8, 2015

Welcome to another biweekly Webinterpret in review article. This week we have a lot of news about modifications done our Shipping Manager, we’ll soon offer a new payment method, we now cover a new Amazon category and data synchronization has been improved for Amazon sellers. Read on for more…

EBAY IMPROVEMENTS

  • We’d like to remind clients that as of June 29, all eBay sellers must add Product Identifiers to new or refurbished items. This applies to current or new items listed without variations. As of September 1 this rule will apply to items with variations. Please read the following article on how we handle eBay product identifiers for more information.
  • Our user interface has been improved once again. Here’s how it looks now:

1b 300x89

  • We will soon create a flat shipping field for entire categories. It will have maximum shipping price limits.
  • Webinterpret’s new Shipping Manager tool no longer shows countries you can’t ship to.
  • A bug where invoices weren’t visible has been fixed.
  • Shipping cost can be set to 0.
  • When setting shipping prices our system will automatically convert commas to dots.
  • Shipping names can be shorter than 4 characters and can contain any unicode character.
  • A new items eligibility algorithm is being rolled out for all new users, which will improve the types of items being selected for localization. All existing users will be migrated to new algorithm soon.
  • We will start offering direct debit as a new payment method in the next few weeks. It will enable auto-charging.
  • My Item search in the user interface is working faster.

AMAZON IMPROVEMENTS

  • Seller account and listing information will be better synchronized thanks to Amazon SQS (Simple Queue Service). SQS will notify Webinterpret every time there’s a change, thus freeing up a lot of resources and making the data more up-to-date. Users have to subscribe (for free!) to the feed so we can use SQS.
  • We added the Pet Supplies to the list of categories we support for international listing.
