Today, we officially announce the release of 3dcart's 6.3 version with new features and upgrades for our merchants who wish to integrate his or her store with eBay and specifically the integration of UK's Royal Mail and Parcel Force. This is the 3rd version release for 2014. The 2 previous releases included, HTML5 Responsive Themes in beta, Amazon Product Ads automated feed, payments with Checkout By Amazon for US, UK and DE merchants, and multiple SEO built-in features like the rel="next" and rel="prev" for Category Pages, Custom URLs, Canonical Pagination Control among other things.

The eBay module is available for free to all 3dcart merchants on the Professional + or higher plans, and it will be found in your store modules page.  The new plugin allows 3dcart merchants (who are also on eBay) to list their items from the 3dcart store onto their eBay account. From there, the items can be auctioned or set for buy it now options. Furthermore, the orders from the merchant’s eBay account can be set to download into the 3dcart store for processing in one centralized location, and more.  Additional details can be found at, https://support.3dcart.com/Knowledgebase/List/Index/46/.

The Royal Mail & Parcel Force Integration allows our UK merchants more flexibility than ever.  UK Merchants now have access to real-time shipping calculations for all areas serviced by Royal Mail and Parcel Force.

Our built-in DOBA integration allows you to synchronize product information from DOBA to your 3dcart store as well as sending back the orders received from 3dcart to DOBA to have these fulfilled automatically.

Among the features and upgrades from 3dcart: HTML5 templates are now in the final stage before the official release, which is scheduled for next month.
