Issues resolved in 3.0.0

  1. When reviwing the list of inventory within the "Inventory Settings" tab GTC durations would show as 30 days. It now shows GTC correctly.
  2. For variation listings, under some scenarios it may be possible to trigger a duplicate product code error even when there was no conflict. This was being caused by some options having an empty value being passed to Ebay. The module now checks for empty values and drops them before sending to Ebay which resolves this problem.
  3. International & Domestic rate table selections did not get respected when sending items to the live Ebay site. this has been corrected and now works correctly
  4. After selecting a category and saving an error would be added to the CubeCart error log caused by the imported category information from Ebay. This has been corrected.
