Downloading File Exchange File from eBay

During or prior to your eBay implementation, your ChannelAdvisor contact may ask to review some detailed information about your existing eBay listings in order to identify a launch strategy that meets your requirements. You can provide this information by downloading a File Exchange export of your active listings from eBay.

Your ChannelAdvisor contact may use this file to see what data could be retrieved from eBay to accelerate your launch, and/or to determine whether it will be necessary to withdraw the listings when you go live on ChannelAdvisor.
