English term or phrase: Eyeballs? Schmyballs!
The complete text talks about eCommerce. It is slang, I suppose. Any idea?

Spanish translation:no direct translation. Slang!
Explanation:
You're right. It is slang. It comes from yiddish and is normally used to indicate that something is unimportant in terms of the matter on hand. Anther example would be "genius shmgenius", i.e. the guy poses as agenius, but in reality is nothing. I guess in spanish you could say "Tiene de genio lo que yo de ?????" o "Genio, mis ....!" Look at the context and you{ll come up with slang in spanish that could help xlate it.
I hope it helps.
