Can I install the eBay widgets if I am using WordPress?

Yes, our widgets work great with WordPress sites. To install our widget using WordPress simply switch the text editor to “Text” mode and paste in the code snippet wherever you want the widget to display. You can also use WordPress’s built in “Text” widget to insert our tools into your blog’s sidebar.

Can I install the eBay widgets onto my CMS (Content Management System) based website?

The answer to this question depends on whether your CMS system will support the insertion of JavaScript code. Due to the vast amount of systems that exist today, it is not possible to list compatibility and instructions for each of them here. Please refer to your CMS documentation or do a simple search online to see if your CMS supports insertion of JavaScript.

Can I have more than one of the same widget on the same page?

Unfortunately it is not currently possible to have more than one of the same widget on the same page. You can however have different widgets on the same page. For example you may want to showcase some eBay listings in the sidebar of your website with your eBay profile in the main content section.
