Tasks to Complete


Navigate to your Marketplaces > eBay > Settings > eBay Settings view anytime after you have completed the Setup Guide to manage your eBay settings. You can manage and customize the following:

eBay Marketplace Credentials

Your eBay marketplace credentials is the unique login information for your seller account that is necessary for the ChannelAdvisor system to interface with eBay. Your eBay marketplace credentials are issued directly from eBay when you register a selling account. Entering this information is required for ChannelAdvisor to be able to list inventory and process orders on your behalf.

  1. Navigate to your   Marketplaces > eBay > Settings > eBay Settings  view
  2. Select the  edit  link next to   eBay Marketplace Credentials  to configure the settings listed below.
    • eBay's Token Authentication
      1. Click the link in the token  section to (re)authenticate your account.
      2. You will be redirected to eBay's website.
      3. Enter your user name and password directly on that website.  ChannelAdvisor does not have any knowledge of that user name and password.
      4. eBay will validate the user name and password you enter.
        • If incorrect, an error is displayed.
        • If correct, eBay passes a token  (an encrypted data string) back to ChannelAdvisor and sets an expiration date on that token.

ChannelAdvisor will use this token whenever communicating with eBay on your behalf. eBay authenticates that this token is valid, and if so will allow ChannelAdvisor to list products, pull orders, etc. on your behalf.

Eventually your eBay marketplace token will expire, which means eBay will no longer allow ChannelAdvisor to have access to its system until you "re-authenticate" a new token by repeating the steps listed above. The ChannelAdvisor software will warn you when your token is about to expire.

    • Setting Up Multiple Accounts
      1. Select the Add New button.  You'll be required to authenticate a token with eBay for each account.  Upon doing so, each account will be listed on the  eBay Marketplace Credentials page.  You'll quickly be able to see the following information for each account:
      2. Register your eBay Authentication token
      3. Verify eBay Username
      4. Enter your eBay Password
      5. Select your eBay Marketplaces associated with this account
      6. Click Save

Listings

Control how ChannelAdvisor manages your eBay Listings with settings for Overselling Avoidance, Price Synchronization, Variation Listings, Item Specific Automatic Matching and avoiding duplicate listings.

  1. Navigate to your    Marketplaces > eBay > Settings > eBay Settings   view
  2. Select the   edit   link next to   listings   to configure the settings listed below.
    • Revise Listings - The  allows a seller to have open listings automatically updated at eBay when changes are made to inventory items, posting templates, ad templates, schedules, or other information used to create an open listing.  When these changes are detected, open listings at eBay will be automatically updated with the new information. Please visit the Revising an Open Listing page for additional information on this setting and the automatic withdraw options.
       
    • Variation Listings - Variation listings allow you to provide all of the similar items in a single eBay listing to make it easier for the buyer to find the size, color, or other option that they would like to purchase. Without variation listings, each of the options must be submitted independently, creating a much more complicated landscape for the buyer to navigate when searching for an item. With variation listings, the buyer finds the product and then has the complete selection of all available options for that item. They can select the item directly instead of requiring additional searches and navigation to find the specific item they desire. Please visit the  Using Variation Listings on eBay  page for additional information on this setting.
       
    • Item Specifics Automatic Matching - Automatic matching for eBay Item Specifics can significantly reduce the number of posting templates in an account.  This makes it easier to configure Ads and ensure that item specific information is submitted to eBay when the items are listed. Please visit the  Using Automatic Matching for eBay Item Specifics  page for additional information on this setting.
       
    • Duplicate Listing Processing - The eBay Duplicate Listing Policy prohibits submitting multiple listings of the same item in the same listing format with certain limited exceptions.  In general, sellers should not be submitting the same item multiple times, so the Duplicate Listing Processing block was added to help prevent inadvertent submission of the same inventory item in the same listing format multiple times.  For users that would like duplicate listings blocked, enabling the option will stop any listing of an item that is already submitted as live to eBay. Please visit the  Avoiding Duplicate Listings at eBay  page for additional information on this setting.
       
    • Zero Quantity Automatic Withdraw - When using Out Of Stock Control , listings remain open at eBay even when they no longer have quantity for buyers.  This option allows for automatic withdrawal of items that have had no available quantity for an extended period of time.  This can prevent excessive listing fees charged to the eBay seller account for items that no buyer can purchase.  Please visit the Out of Stock Control page for additional information on this setting.

eBay Custom Item Specifics

If you would like to send additional product information to eBay as user-defined Custom Item Specifics, you can select product attributes that will be submitted to eBay as additional information.  First, eBay-defined Custom Item Specifics will be submitted, and then additional user-defined Custom Item Specifics will be added to the listing.  Note that eBay has a limit on the total number of item specifics allowed in a listing so make sure you are selecting attributes that provide value to a buyer when they see your product listing.  You may select as many as you want, and only those with a value configured on the SKU will be submitted to eBay.

  4. Select Save

It appears that eBay has a limit of 15 item specifics on a listing.  This includes the fields that are defined by eBay as item specifics as well as custom item specifics you add to the listing.  Because of this limit, you want to make sure you provide the relevant and most important information for your custom item specifics to display that information at the top and any additional details can still be included as part of your main description section.
