eBay Profile contains settings related to the eBay connection. To create a new eBay Profile, navigate to the 'Profiles' menu, switch to the 'eBay Profiles' tab, and click the 'Add eBay Profile' button.

  • Name — the name of the eBay profile and how it will be represented across Salestio. Please enter the name that could help you identify this eBay profile among others.

  • Listing Type  — defines a price mode that will be used to sell the item on eBay. There are 2 options.      
    • Fixed Price — this format sets the exact price that buyer will need to pay for this item. Can be purchased immediately. If this format is selected, the price displayed on eBay equals the price on Shopify if nothing else is specified in the Global profile.
    • Auction — this format allows buyers to compete for your product. The Starting Price equals the Shopify price unless anything else is specified through the Global Profile. 
  • Buy Now Price Ratio  — the ratio that allows a user to purchase the item at a fixed price and end the auction immediately. Available for the Auction Listing Type.
  • Reserve Price Ratio  — the ratio that defines the lowest price at which the seller is willing to sell the item. Available for the Auction Listing Type.
  • Listing Duration  — the length of time the product is shown on eBay. Values depend on the Listing Type.      
    • 1, 3, 5, 7, 10 days — can be selected for the 'Auction' Listing Type.
    • GTC (Good Till Canceled) — works for the 'Fixed Price' Listing Type.
  • Listing Duration — the length of time the product is shown on eBay. Values depend on the Listing Type.

    Important! Creation Profile should be created prior to adding the eBay profile.

  • Best Offer — When you add the Best Offer option to your eBay listings, you’re inviting buyers to negotiate with you. After a buyer makes an offer, you can choose to accept, decline, or make a counteroffer. Remember to specify Minimum Price Offer and Auto Accept Offer Price for the best experience.
