Creating eBay Listings

Created: - Updated:

This article will teach you how to create eBay listings from Sellbrite.

New eBay listings can be created from Sellbrite, but before creating listings, it's important to understand what a Preset is and how it can help us in the listing process for eBay.

Building a Preset

Listing Presets can be found on the Settings page by clicking the Listing Presets link on the left.

Add a new preset by clicking the "Add Preset" button on the next page and then selecting eBay.

eBay Preset Sections

Each sales channel has different listing settings and options. For eBay, save all of your commonly used settings into a Listing Preset, so you don't have to repeat your work.

Template

The Template section of the eBay Preset allows you to use what Sellbrite calls "Product Tags" to automatically pre-fill the "Title", "Subtitle", and "Description" fields for each listing you create to eBay from Sellbrite. In the example below, we're using the product tag {{name}}, which literally is the name of our product from Sellbrite, for our eBay Title and {{description}} for our eBay Description...

Note: If you have a custom HTML template, you can use the HTML Text Editor to paste in your HTML template and use product tags to call data and images into your template.

Listing Format & Duration

The Listing Format & Duration section of the eBay Preset allows you to set your listing format to auction or fixed price, as well as the duration for the eBay listing.

Note: If you have the "Out of Stock Control" option enabled for Inventory Sync, you'll have to set the listing duration to "Good 'Til Canceled" for Fixed Price listings. 

Pricing

The Pricing section of the eBay Preset allows you to mark UP, mark DOWN or just leave your pricing as is from your products in Sellbrite, for the listings you're creating to eBay, whether they're Fixed Price Items or Auction Items. In the example below, we have a product in Sellbrite with a price of $10 and we're applying a (+ 10%) mark UP. The listing (only on eBay) will be published with a price of $11 ($10 + 10% = $11).

Note: If you want to list your products using only your Product price from Sellbrite, you would leave this section blank.

Enabling the Best Offer feature to allows buyers to send you their best offer for consideration. Furthermore, you can set pricing rules on when to automatically accept or decline an offer. 

Shipping Options

The Shipping Options section of the eBay Preset allows you to set Domestic and International Shipping options for each listing you create to eBay from Sellbrite. If you are enrolled in eBay's Global Shipping Program, don't forget to allow GSP when available. Enabling the option to Exclude Locations allows you to select specific location(s) you may not want to ship out to.

Preferences

The Preferences section of the eBay Preset allows you to set additional information such as Payment, Sales Tax, Returns, and Buyer Requirement options for your eBay listing.

Creating eBay Listings

Listing products to eBay is easy. You'll start by choosing the products you want to list to eBay from the Products page that will be listed in the same eBay Primary Category, then click the Create Listings button and choose your eBay account from the list of channels.

You'll now enter the Listings Builder for eBay. Follow the steps of the Listings Builder until you reach the final step, "Complete your listings".

From here, you can make last minute adjustments to your listings before you publish them live. Once your listings are done, simply select "Publish All Listings" on the top of the page and your listings will publish live onto eBay.

Duplicating eBay Listings

Sellbrite can duplicate your existing listings to create new ones with slight modifications.

From the Listings Manager, select listings you wish to duplicate. Then, find the Duplicate Listings button on the top.

Then, choose the channel account for the new listing.

If you have multiple accounts for a single channel, you can duplicate your listings onto another account. For example, if you have 2 eBay accounts, you can duplicate your listings from one account to the other.

You cannot duplicate listings onto a completely different type of channel. For example, you cannot duplicate an eBay listing onto an Amazon account.

The new listings will appear in your Drafts folder. You can then make any modifications to them that you'd like, and then simply Publish them to go live.

Relisting Ended eBay Listings

Your ended eBay listings can be relisted from Sellbrite as well. You can either relist ended listings in bulk or individually, from Sellbrite.

First, you will want to view the ended listings in your eBay channel, in Sellbrite. Go to Channels and select eBay from the dropdown > Listing Manager for your eBay account, and then click on the Ended listings tab.

Relisting in Bulk

To relist in bulk, select one or more ended listings from the Listing Manager page, and then click the Relist button on top.  You can see which listings have already been relisted by the icon in the "Relisted" column.

 

Once you click Relist, you will have two options: list now, or make changes first. The second option will create a Draft listing that can be edited prior to going live.

If you wish to modify the Draft listings before publishing, you can either apply a preset or edit the draft listings individually.

Relisting Individually

You can also relist ended eBay listings one-by-one, by clicking on the listing title and then clicking the Relist button.  Similar to relisting in bulk, you'll have the option to list immediately or make changes first.

Once you have relisted the ended listing, you will see the new listing on the "Active" tab of your eBay Listing Manager, and the original listing on the "Ended" tab. Sellbrite maintains a copy of ended listings, even if they have been relisted, with a link to the new listing for your record.
