Would you like to send your products to eBay? Here you can find out how to do so! Note that you need EAN codes. Without EAN codes, sending products to eBay is not possible (filling an EAN code with "does not apply" is not supported by Channable).
Note: Make sure you are no longer logged in to your eBay account
Note 2: eBay charges listings costs for every time an ad (or listing as eBay calls them) is created. Every 30 days Channable automatically renews your listings, so every 30 days eBay will charge listing costs. We place ads as "Good Till Cancelled" listings (see this eBay page).
Note 3: If the eBay functionality is not visible in your account, please contact us. We will enable the feature you.
1) Create new connection
Go to your Channable account > API and click '+ Add new API'. Click 'Add new connection'
Select eBay, give your new marketplace API a suitable label and click 'Create'
2) Login at eBay
You will automatically be redirected to your eBay environment. Sign in with your email or username and password.
3) Add new connection
Now you will need to grant application access to Channable, click 'I agree'.
You will be sent back to your Channable account where you can create the connection. Click 'Create connection'.
4) Create new API
The connection is now visible in your overview with new APIs. Select eBay, give a suitable name to your API and select the country you would like to use this marketplace for. You will also need to choose a 'unique ID per product', this is a code that is unique (different) for each individual product. Make sure that the code you choose really is a unique code.
To finish up your settings choose a connection status. It is recommended to start with an 'inactive' API. When you have finished building your product listings and you would like to test them choose 'active- send products live' and review your listings in your account on the export platform's side. Your products will be live on eBay almost immediately.
6) Build your product listings
Actually building your products listings is very simple and fast. With our preset template all you have to do is to fill it out by clicking on the field itself and selecting the corresponding value. For instance, the field 'Title' should display the 'Title' of your product and so on. Notice the question mark behind some of the fields; if you hover over the question mark you will see the description of the field and suggestions for possible values. When you have finished setting up the ads, just click 'save' on the bottom of the screen.
The build phase will also include links for setting up policies. If you have set these policies up but can't find them, you might need to enable them first. For more information, see this link.
7) Send your product listings to eBay
Almost there, sending your products does not take more than 30 sec. If you have not activated your webshop just go to the 'settings' tab and click 'activate webshop'. After that, go back to the APIs tab, click on setting, then choose 'active - send products live' so they are visible to everyone. After you have completed this step you can click the 'preview' tab.
Once you have sent your ads to eBay go to the 'preview' tab. By clicking on 'errors' you can see which product listings have errors and are not placed. On the right hand side under 'Result' you also have a quick overview of how many listings have been sent successfully, how many errors have occurred and how many warnings are given.
