Would like to see shopify app integrate and list products/prints that are available for sale/ISO's via EB.

record sales history automatically in the EB system........I haven't recorded sales in almost 7-8 years. People ask me all the time to record sales, but don't have time to manually do that stuff any more.

Don't really see how a shopify app would fit in. EB is a discussion forum and a venue for people to transact with one another. And evolving out of that, it's become a source of record. But never really getting involved with the transactions themselves.
So it goes...

While there's an aspect of that idea which I think would be a really fun/good thing, I think the big word I take from that suggestions is APP. What you're talking about would more be a supplemental app to run alongside EB as a site. As mfaith has said, part of EB has been to not be part of the transactions - you really have to choose between being either fully vested in transactions/exchanges between members OR not being part of them at all.

a shopify app like jojo described has nothing to do with "getting involved in the transactions themselves" any more than when the final price from an ebay sale is recorded into the print sale history. what he's referring to if i'm getting this is something that will automatically record his sales from his shopify store when they happen. and when something sells, it gets removed from his FS list on EB. and when he adds new inventory to his store, it gets added to his inventory on eb. Jojo doesn't have the time to do these menial tasks himself, so why not automate the process? it's a great idea.

first and foremost by the way, eb is:

"a wealth of information about graphic art including dimensions, edition size, medium and technique, eBay auction tracking, past and current sales histories, price averages, and much more."

so not sure where you think a source of record has "evolved" as some sort of ancillary service that came up without intention. The forum is a secondary function of this site, the database is the secret sauce. If anything it's a database of historical record first and a discussion/buying/selling/trading platform second.
