I have successfully modified an older eBay API plugin (auction2post) to allow for custom post types and taxonomies. My modded plugin now works with the latest version of Classipress for which I'm wanting to launch new sites which include both classified & eBay listings.
Where I have a problem is within the following API license clause:
"220.127.116.11 eBay Content in a Public Display may not be co-mingled or combined with the content of any third party. All eBay Content must be segregated from non-eBay content (for example, third-party listings or other non-eBay information) and visually separated from non-eBay Content (for example, with lines or color changes)."
Firstly, all listings will be separated by virtue of the fact that each will have its own 'single-ad' listing page. The eBay content/listing page will include a few roverlinks strategically placed.
Secondly, all of the listing 'post-blocks' (index,category & search pages) would be separated/differentiated by coloured backgrounds and/or lines (eg.all ebay item post-blocks would be coloured....non-ebay items would have the standard grey background).
My point is, do I really have to go the whole hog and separate both types of listing post-blocks into different "content blocks", especially if the eBay listings are clearly identified and obvious to users. Its not as if I would be including Amazon listings.....then I could understand.
Could an authorised eBay representative please respond to my query.
PS. I can provide a link to a test site if required.
