Platinum level Q and A -> Supplier Inventory Management

How does supplier inventory checking work?

Your items will be updated according to supplier's stock availability. You fill in your supplier URL's on SM and your eBay items will be updated automatically as per supplier's stock.

 

Platinum level Q and A -> Multi-Variation Listings (MVL's)

How do I set up my Multi-variation listings? (MVL's)

Your MVL's will be pulled into SM for you, and you can continue to populate them from there. It is important that the SKU's you have are a match between your eBay listings and the SKU's you set in SM. If you fill in your eBay listing correctly, as stated above, this will be populated for you.

Please see the screenshot of one of our demo MVL's which shows where you can set the SKU's on your ebay listing.

Below, I have put in step by step information on how to set up your MVL's. Please see the screenshot sequence that goes with it:

1. Fill in your main supplier field first with one of your MVL's

2. Open your MVL's

3. Populate your MVL's with the exact URL for each one

*Remember, your SKU's MUST be a match between your eBay listing and SM for it to update correctly.

Platinum level Q and A -> Supplier Re:pricing Tool

Does the Dynamic Supplier Re: Pricer work with all suppliers?

No, this feature does not work with all suppliers, it is however continually being added to.
You can tell if your supplier is currently supported or not if you can see the price displayed as per this example.

Platinum level Q and A -> Supplier Re:pricing Tool

How does the Dynamic Supplier Re: Pricer work?

The Dynamic Supplier Re: Pricer is very straight forward, you simply take the calculation that you have already worked out when loading your listing and put that percentage into the field. So if for example you have already calculated that you need to maintain a profit margin of 30% after factoring in eBay, PayPal and postage fees etc.. then you key '30' into the field. As per example...
*Note, this feature is not supported with all suppliers, please see Q and A that addresses this.

Platinum level Q and A -> How to fill in the SKU fields

How do I fill in the SKU's, are they even required?

1. If you are not drop shipping, you don't need a SKU at all.

2. If you are drop shipping, however it is a simple listing - like one toy found at kmart, you DO need a SKU, however it does not need to match with your eBay listing. It does not even need to match with the SKU that Kmart provides. However it needs something in that field in order to save it and move forward.
You could put "mickey mouse" and it will still work, however we recommend putting something that makes sense. This often means using the SKU or other indentifying code that your supplier has provided. A UPC code - unique product code, or an item code etc. Ultimately, it can be anything you want for a simple stand alone listing.

3. If you are using DSZ - (Drop Ship Zone) then this is an exception and it MUST have the SKU provided by DSZ. Our method of updating this supplier differs from the others so in this case it is imperative that you use the SKU that DSZ provides.

4. If you are using MVL's then the SKU that you key into SM, or that you have already in your ebay listing (as it will be drawn into SM when your account is linked up) that SKU absolutely MUST MATCH. If it does not match, then the MVL's cannot update.
*Please see separate entry in the knowledge base that addresses how to set up MVL's.
