Paypal Importer - Link Sales to Stock/Products

When importing sales transactions using Paypal importer it is impossible to tell what stock product to associate this transaction with. eBay item title alone doesn't help identify unique products when importing Paypal transactions. When dealing in non branded goods, eBay titles are normally a set or keywords, no more. If you can include eBay's 'Custom Label' data in the feed you receive from Paypal (if that's at all an option) that would allow merchants to easily associate each transaction with unique product. eBay's 'Custom Label' is used by merchants to records MNP, SKU or variations of products offered on the listing. Very useful when creating dispatch notes, etc.

This little tweak may be easy to implement and would make Kashflow's stock management module usable for a lot of users.

Perhaps other users can share how they deal with this effectively at the moment?

    Thanks for your suggestion guys. This is not something that we are planning to implement at the moment as we are currently not looking to review our stock management system. There are many KashFlow users using paypal, so lets float this onto our discussion page and see what other users suggest

    This is a nightmare, I cannot control my stock because PayPal and woocommerce website sales only pull through the product description and not the product code sky, how on earth are we supposed to manage stock if the product sold doesn't link to the product in kashflow? I think Im going to have to look at changing to another supplier.

    I am having to manually change each individual invoice to link to stock - not ideal! So updating would mean a big time saver!
