Design and programming for the French Connection eBay store. Integrated with the company’s stock control and ordering system to push items directly to eBay, retrieve orders, update shipping status and stock quantity and prices.
Working closely with French Connection’s IT and web teams, we designed the French Connection eBay store so that it looked almost the same as their main website.
Our eBay store replicated the complex menu structure and advanced image viewing features found on FCUK’s website, which made it much talked about and cutting edge for an eBay store
At the time Slingshot was one of only two web agencies in the UK that understood and was asked by eBay to use a new eBay platform called eBay Merchant Integration Platform (eMip). Using eMip, we integrated French Connection’s stock and order system with eBay to keep prices and stock figures synchronised at all times and to automate the selling process.
Unfortunately FCUK decided to stop selling on eBay and as a result this project is no longer available to view online.
