eBay job lots
eBay will allow you to list multiple items together in a single listing, sometimes called a JobLot. This is still classed as a single listing with a single price, but the name and description includes multiple items. The availability displayed on the listing is for the items when purchased together and not individually. It is not possible to sell the items individually, unless separate and unrelated listings are created; these will have their own price and availability.
These types of “bundled” listings will display as a single listing in Brightpearl and can be connected to a Brightpearl bundle.
Availability of a bundle
A bundle can have a theoretical quantity, i.e. the number of bundles that can be sold based on the availability of the items in the bundle. The availability of a bundle is therefore the quantity of the item with the fewest items on hand. It is possible to synchronize this figure with eBay when a bundle is connected to a listing. Activate this settings on each eBay account at Settings > Brightpearl Apps > eBay.
Orders and allocation
Where an eBay listing is connect to a Brightpearl bundle, all the items within the bundle are added to the sales order and the available inventory allocated.
When an eBay order which contains a bundle is marked as shipped in Brightpearl it will update the order on eBay as normal.
