7.1. Importing Items from eBay

Only ACTIVE items may be imported. Be sure you have a profile set up for your Seller ID and that you have obtained a token.

Navigate to Listings > eBay Items > Listings Import

Choose your Seller ID. You will be shown a list of items for your Seller ID. 

To import both the listings and your images from eBay, keep the default "Listing & Image" option (recommended).

You will see image width & quality settings. If your existing images at eBay are 1600px wide and  you wish them to be imported the same width to your Seller Sourcebook account, be sure to select 1600px and the maximum quality setting. This is the image size that will will send back to eBay for any new listings or listing transfers. 

An indicator shows whether items were generated by SSB or not (Yes or No). As a new subscriber, you would see "No" in the SSB column. By default, all items are selected in this workspace, but you may uncheck any items you do not wish to import. We suggest selecting only a few to start until you become familiar with our system. 

When ready, click on the Import Checked Items button.

You will then be taken to the eBay Items Imported view where your items will be displayed. 

The action "Apply Template" will be available within the Actions drop down list for individual listings. The action bar (top or bottom) of the page will have an "Apply Template" button as well as an "Import More Items" button.

Items that have been imported to your account will be indicated by within eBay Items Launched.

Note: Templates must be applied to items to be able to edit them in the Listing Generator and to be able to utilize our listing transfer utility.
