Project Description

We are seeking a programmer with Magento and EBay integration experience to implement a product inventory synchronization solution in our Magento store. Currently working with M2E however it is not meeting our needs.

Professional programming suggestions welcomed on all aspects of this project.

Latest language requirements (possibly more depending on EBay API language requirements):

- php
- mysql
- xml
- html
- css

Please refer to EBay development tools here if needed:

This system should accomplish the following in an easy to use manner from the Magento admin panel / Ebay admin panel:

1. Two way inventory synchronization by SKU number

The only thing that should be shared between Magento products and Ebay products will be the inventory. No separate data field required for this. Just synchronization of inventory by SKU numbers as they both will be the same.
a. inventory changes made in Magento will reflect in EBay
b. inventory changes made in EBay will reflect in Mangento


i. We do not want to remove our current EBay listings for this to work. We would prefer for this to be a rolling implementation and have it all sync up.

ii Please keep in mind that some items are Grouped and Bundled together which draws its numbers from several simple / single items.

For example we sell an art kit that comprises of several paints / easels / brushes, all of which are also sold separately as well.

We need the Magento bundled product inventory to adjust as well as all simple / single Magento products associated with the Magento bundled product when it detects a sale from EBay based on SKU number. The reduction of bundled inventory is already inherent within the Magento system when something is purchased in our Magento store. We just need this to adjust in the Magento store when a purchase is made on EBay as well.

For example Art Kit sku 123456 has a Brush (sku 123) and Paint (456).

When an Art Kit (sku 123456) sells on our Magento store, the Brush (sku 123) and Paint (sku 456) reduces by 1 each.

When an Art Kit (same sku 123456) on EBay sells, this gets communicated to Magento and reduces the Brush and Paint by 1 respectively as well.
