Hi Magento is really good software but you need to add it with your website properly, i had some serious problems when i added Magento to my website, but my all problems were solved by the http://thecustomconfigshop.com/ experts, there services in this regard are awesome, i recommend them for you as well.
ClaraStream is built to do just that and it integrates directly with Magento, Ebay, and Amazon. www.ClaraStream.com
Get some Middleware, this should in no way be part of the standard Magento package.

Since eBay own 49% of Magento - this needs working on, and we need official integration like the magento google base integration.
Hmm, I appreciate that people may prefer to have this 'free' within the CE version - but it does exist, and work already - (I use one of the 3rd party products)! As such although its a very 'nice to have' I don't think I would want Magento developers to spend time on this instead of other tasks (like documentation) , that cant be solved via a 3rd party module!

My name is Arthur Yurovitsky and I represent Kyozou, a major player in the Multi-channel platform market, we have recently deployed our Magento-to-eBay integration into beta and are actively seeking testers.
The process flow is as follows: (User: Beauty Now is right on the money)
Inventory from Magento is synchronized into Kyozou.
All listing/post-listing/order mgmnt/fulfillment occurs from within Kyozou (as we have the necessary tools already built-in to support an eBay sales environment).
Magento inventory is decremented if item is sold on eBay, or incremented back to original level if item does not sell.
Please contact me ASAP if you're interested in being one of the few to test this out (and get all the perks that come along with it).
ESS-UA are happy to announce release of the new extension - M2E Pro - m2epro.ess-ua.com
The M2E Pro extension integrates Magento and eBay platforms. It allows quickly and easily creating and managing listings, synchronize Stock Level and import eBay Transactions and Orders. The extension interacts with any of 22 major eBay marketplaces, including eBay Motors. It is possible to use multiple eBay accounts and multiple Magento stores.
By using Price, Description and Listing template users of the M2E Pro are able to enhance Magento product presentation as eBay item listing. It is possible to create listings of major Listing Types (Auction, Fixed Price, and Store Inventory).
User friendly interface allows easy overview and management (revise, relist, and stop) of the listed eBay items as well as quick navigation to the items on eBay site and the associated product in Magento store.
Flexible options for Stock Level Synchronization allow configuring level of synchronization, which applicable for certain Magento site environment. Depending on the settings the synchronization can be performed on both platforms – on eBay and on Magento site.
Most important feature of the extension is eBay Transactions and Orders Importing. It is possible to import Transactions only or Transactions and Orders. The last one allows having all Orders for listed and sold items on eBay amongst Magento Sales Orders. These Orders are associated with the store, where the sold products were listed from. Depending on the settings, the Customer associated with Order is handled as a Guest Customer, Imported Customer or Single Predefined Customer. If Order item or shipping currency is different from Magento Base Currency, then auto conversion is performed, according to Magento Currency Rates.
Extension allows access to the main activity logs (eBay Listings activity, eBay Data Synchronization, and eBay Transactions/Orders). Users are able to set settings for auto cleaning of logs – this allows decreasing volume of log information and keeping only necessary data.

My vote is for product upload to eBay and stock management (importing eBay orders back into Magento). The problem we hear all the time is stock control - selling items which no longer exists causes problems for both merchant & buyer and avoiding this would be a big bonus.
I'm not sure whether we need all the other features. Sounds like a case of over-specing. I'd rather have a solid product upload & stock control integration and then handle eBay specific things in the eBay admin.
* let us us create eBay uploads from within Magento
* integrate stock management so eBay orders are reflected in Magento
Magento would then become the "master" source for products and stock and always reflect the true stock position.
good ideas...but remember that there are international ebay sites, take this into consideration so one can choose wich ebay store on what site to publish.

We are currently testing an extension for magento that supports real-time order importing from ebay. Also, we're currently developing a module for eBay users with Selling manager status - you can create products based on magento products, synchronise stock levels, set up product templates and control new listing automation settings.
We're probably about a month or two away from public launch of this, and then we may make a simpler version which will support non-selling manager users.
The tricky thing we want to offer is the ability to manage listings on multiple eBay websites at the same time - that's something i've not seen on other platforms.

Wouldn't this be better handled by one of the existing platforms for multi-channel retailing supporting Magento instead. The Magento backend is really only for small scale merchants, anyone doing serious business is going to want to use a specialist tool for inventory mangement and order fulfilment especially if they are multi-channelling. Sometimes it is better to have the right tool for the job rather than a toaster-phone...
This could be a great feauture and is definately something that would improve Magento as a leader in online commerce. No other competitor could give us full eBay support so in that matter I would love to see it at Magento!
