This article provides an overview of the Aspect Finder+ tool which allows you to review and manipulate the data provided by Optiseller. 

The Aspect Finder+ tool allows you to populate item specifics across your eBay listings quickly and easily.

Once your Aspect Finder+ report has generated you get notified by email and are then taken to the report summary page:

When you click on any of the categories (highlighted blue) within the report, you will be presented the listings that are in that category.

In the example above, there is one listing within the "Fabric" category.  

Actions Required

The tool highlights different scenarios:

  • Missing (highlighted in red) means that Optiseller was unable to find a value for this item specific and you should complete this to comply and to maximise your visibility across the eBay marketplace.

  • Found (highlighted in orange) means that Optiseller has found a value for one of your missing item specifics saving you time with your optimisation efforts.

  • Seller Created (highlighted in purple) means that the listing has a value but it is not one of eBay's recommended drop-down values. This does not require any action but the listing will not benefit from any eBay search indexing or filtering for this item specific. If Aspect Finder+ has managed to find a suggestion, it will be shown below (where it says Recommended: 'Fabric, Length Roll') and can be clicked to apply the recommendation.

  • No Action (highlighted in green) means that the value is populated correctly and is one of eBay's recommended drop-down values according to the category taxonomy.

  • Recommended (dotted orange box) is when a previous Seller Created value has been modified to a recommended value.

When you edit any item specific value within Aspect Finder+, the field will become dotted to highlight this:

When entering values, Aspect Finder+ will provide a list of the eBay dropdown values for the item specific, in this example below you can see the values for 'Length/Amount'.

Revising directly on eBay

Once you have made the changes on Aspect Finder+, you can send the updated item specifics directly to eBay or alternatively export in the desired format.

You can do this via either clicking the 'Send to eBay' button on the far right of the screen, use the bottom scroll bar to access it.

Listings can be revised individually, in batches or all at once.

Or you can click 'Revise All':

A warning is displayed to highlight issues to be aware of when revising directly:

Exporting Data

To export data for use with 3rd party providers you can choose any of these formats, go to the 'Export Data' section:

Choose the format required then click "Download".

Just as a note: if you incorrectly choose any Data within the item specific boxes this can be reset to the original values by clearing the textbox field.

Filtering

The tool allows you to filter results as follows:

  • "Required" will include all the listings that are missing any required item specifics. The missing values should be completed and found values reviewed to comply.

  • "Required Soon" will include all the listings that are missing any required soon item specifics, these are the item specifics that are soon to be mandated by eBay. The missing values should be completed and found values reviewed to comply.

  • "Recommended" will include all the listings that are missing any recommended item specifics. The missing values should be completed and found values reviewed to comply.

Note: Our eBay File Exchange format does not currently support variations.  However, variant listings can be updated directly from the tool, or SKU level data is available in the Magento or Basic file formats.
