Just curious if anyone knows about a script or some type of way that I would be able to include a link in an ebay listing that would direct and/or open a new window to display the current stock levels of my dropshipper? Of course it would be a custom pages designed to look like my store with a basic table including the item and stock levels that are checked right off my suppliers site.

Hi Justin,

I wish I can be more help with the script part the only thing I would suggest is if you indeed run out of stock when a customer clicks that link to see the stock level make sure you remove that listing if you run out because eBay can very well cancel that listing and put your account on hold for not having the product available. Basically they see if a seller doesnt have a product available at the time the listing is running then they are basically spamming the system just to get exposure. Now Im sure your not intending on doing this but its something that eBay is weird about.

Was just curious as I've come across of few other stores that have a fancy banner with 'Check our current stock levels' and when you click it pulls up a custom page with Part Number stock level and so on.

Would seem easier than my current method of staring at my suppliers website :)!
