Support » Plugin: WP-Lister Lite for eBay » Multiple duplicate listings (6x !)

  • Resolved Goudie

    Hello,

    First of all, I have been using WP-Lister for over three years and would like to thank you for this very useful plugin. šŸ‘

    Now I have had a really big problem for a few days. I don’t know if it is directly related to this plugin or to eBay, but it is very strange.

    Over the past few days, I have been amazed to receive lots of emails from eBay for “new item is published”. Now several times a day (for almost each of my 100 products). I went to eBay to make sure everything was ok, and HORROR! Most of my products are duplicated in 4, 5, sometimes 6 different listings! Only a few products do not have duplication.

    In the plugin, everything is OK. I have no error, the products are listed once, everything is as usual during synchronization. But on eBay it’s war! It does NOT happen after plugin sync but at certain times of the day without I understand why. I took an example for one product (the result seems to be similar for the others) here are the differences:

    Original listing (the one that is synchronized with the plugin)
    – price in euro (as expected)
    – text in French (as expected)
    – delivery “worldwide” and all delivery options are displayed as defined in the profile

    Duplicate Listing 1
    – price in USD
    – text automatically translated into English (???)
    – delivery “worldwide” except 34 countries excluded

    Duplicate Listing 2
    – price in AUD
    – text automatically translated into English (???)
    – delivery “worldwide” except 33 countries excluded

    Duplicate listing 3
    – price in GBP
    – text automatically translated into English (???)
    – delivery “worldwide” except 33 countries excluded

    Duplicate listing 4
    – price in EUR
    – text automatically translated into Italian (???)
    – delivery “worldwide” except 5 countries excluded (Australia, United States, France, United Kingdom, Spain)

    Duplicate Listing 5
    – price in EUR
    – text automatically translated into Spanish (???)
    – delivery “worldwide” except 5 countries excluded (France, United Kingdom, United States, Australia)

    It makes no sense ! Again, I don’t know if this has anything to do with the plugin but it’s a mess in my eBay listings, with these listings automatically duplicated and translated (that’s the most surprising!).

    Of course, I would like to point out that I only use one eBay account synchronized in the plugin (eBay France).

    Do you have any information, seen similar cases? I am not sure that my ads will synchronize well, and especially I have a lot of duplicate listings, which i never wanted.

    Thanks for your help šŸ˜‰šŸ™`

    I deduce that this problem is not related to the plugin but to the activation (without asking me!) Of “Webinterpret” on my eBay account. The best way they have found to “translate” the listings is to duplicate them, skewing all the numbers (views, stock value, etc). A real mess! Which is not very surprising from eBay and its abysmal interface.

    Here is the “top secret” link I found to deactivate this service which is not mentioned anywhere in my eBay account. If it ever helps someone…

    Thank you for providing that information and link for other users who may run into this issue @goudie35

    Yes, based on your explanation it does sound like those duplicate listings are caused by Webinterpret.

    Kind regards,
    John
