I've recently setup a nice listing on eBay for my shopify products. I did this naively on the eBay platform so that I could setup a proper custom listing template with a nice design. I have also setup eBay as a sales channel from within shopify.
My question is, how can I import my manual eBay listing into shopify so that my orders and inventory get synced? It looks like the only way shopify support this is if you publish the listings from within shopify itself (which I don't want to do for the reasons mentioned above)
Any help would be much appreciated.
You need to link your eBay account to Shopify. Click the button (+) on the right side of eBay in the section Add sales channel. Then, waiting for a Pop up appears and click Connect. Next, enter your eBay ID and password to log in to eBay.
You need to provide additional business information, including contact details, inventory details, or ownership details.
The next step is Configure your eBay policies for your listings on eBay related to your location, sales terms, and fulfillment. You should follow the default policies that eBay recommends because they do not want to deal with policy infringements in the future.
