How You Want To Sell Your Item

Listing Type – select the appropriate format for your Products:

  • Auction – buyers can place bids to win the item.
  • Fixed Price – buyers can purchase the item immediately without bidding.

For more details please check this eBay article. 

Private Listing – select 'Yes' to allow buyers to remain anonymous to other eBay users when they bid on or buy an item. Only the seller will see the usernames.

For Business Users Only - select 'Yes' to offer an item to business users only.

'For Business Users Only' option is available for business sellers who offer the items only in B2B-enabled categories on eBay DE, AT and CH. Also, the valid VAT ID registered with eBay is required.

Quantity And Duration

Listing Duration – defines how long your item will be shown on eBay.

  • For Auction-style items, you can select 1, 3, 5, 7, 10 days. 
  • For Fixed-price items – Good 'Til Cancelled.

A 1-day listing duration option is available only if you have a feedback score of at least 10.

eBay automatically renews the Good Till Cancelled items once per month until the stock is sold out or seller ends it, otherwise, the item breaches eBay Policy.

Quantity – the number of items you want to sell on eBay.

  • Product QTY – the number of items displayed on eBay will be equal to their quantity in Magento.
  • Custom Value – allows specifying the particular number of Items to be displayed on eBay.
  • Magento Attribute – item quantity value will be taken from the selected Attribute.

QTY Percentage – the number of items displayed on eBay will be calculated as a percentage of Product Quantity or Magento Attribute value. For example, if QTY Percentage = 80% and Product Quantity = 10, the item quantity available on eBay will be 8.

Conditional Quantity – allows specifying the maximum and minimum number of Items to be displayed on eBay.

  • Minimum Quantity to Be Listed - e.g. if you have 2 items in stock and the 'Minimum quantity to be listed' is 5, the item will not be listed on eBay.
  • Maximum Quantity to Be Listed - e.g. if you have 10 items in stock and want to keep 2 items back, set the 'Maximum quantity to be listed' to 8.

Lot Size - switch to 'Custom Value' to enter the number of items in a lot or select an appropriate Magento Attribute.

The Lot is a set of two or more identical or similar items that must be purchased together.

The Lot Size value does not affect the number of ordered Items and Magento Product quantity. It only informs the customers how many items are included in the Lot they bought.

Ignore Variations – select how to list Configurable, Bundle, Grouped, Simple with Custom Options and Downloadable Products on eBay. 

If you use Backorders or Do not Manage Stock options, additional settings are required. Please find more details here.

VAT Rate - to use this option, you have to be registered as a business seller on eBay and list the item on the VAT-enabled sites: Ireland, India, Switzerland, Spain, Holland, Belgium, Italy, Germany, France, Austria, or the United Kingdom. The VAT information will be displayed on the eBay Item page if it is specified.
