    This might seem a stupid question, but if you added an ebay feed like Php Bay that stores stuff in the database, does this add any excess load on the servers? I'm with Bluehost and a wee bit worried about that.

    I have a couple of html sites where I have an rss feed but it uses javascript so nothing goes in a database. However it seems Wordpress ebay stores are all the rage, so I figured I'd give it a go. I am assuming the ebay feeds are stored in the DB.

    Is WP Auction Master good for this? I was intrigued to see you could add it to existing blogs. I'm currently using one database for a number of blogs with BlogMatrix. They just have news feeds on as a means to get my main sites indexed quickly, so it'd be cool if an ebay store could be blended into each blog yet remain on the one DB.
