eBay Factory Module 3.1

  eBay Factory Module comes as a help for the targeted sites which are running a specified business. This way the administrator can set up certain search-keywords in order to display in a module only certain eBay auctions for his visitors.

The search can be limited by entering multiple keywords and if the area of interest is bigger then the administrator can publish another module with a different keyword since multiple instances are supported. There is also the possibility to display certain items belonging to a single seller (user) using the seller id and a keyword.

From the backend the auctions can be ordered by "newly listed" and "ending soon". Also the number of auctions, title length, show/hide images and date format can be configured. Pagination permits also to set only a number of items per page, from the total number of results, which is also configurable.

The display can be configured through CSS in order to match any existing template and there is also a cache option.
