    Go for cron job scheduling if you are all allowed to get imported from ebay. See here for some idea: http://www.activecampaign.com/suppor...=kb&article=11
    Mistakes are proof that you are trying.....

    I'm so sorry - I wasn't clear enough. The problem is - I'm not the only one who's going to import ebay products. I want my users to import their ebay products to my store. So if they have 1000 products from their ebay listing and they want to import to my store, I want 3 products to be imported to my store for every 5 minutes. So it will be a lot of time of waiting before they will import all that 1000 products to my store. If you think this is time consuming for my customers, can you recommend which will be the best way to do so that my server performance/issue won't be at risk and also reasonable to let stay my customers in my store.

    import more than 3 products at once... import 30, 50... 100... if your just adding data to your database its probably not going to be a big deal. Only way to find out is to test out a few different import sizes using cron as suggested and email yourself (or by any other means) the time it took to run.

    The problem is we have a lot of customers and they want to import their products from their ebay listing to our system. And we would like to allow 3 entries for every 5 minutes per import of each customers untill they imported all their products. let us say they have 12 products so by the time theyr'e done importing, it took 20 minutes for them to import - just to make the server performance still safe. any recommendation will be highly appreciated. thanks for reading.
