How To: Set up eBay Auctions

Setting up eBay Auctions for all items

Note: You may use the header ebaylisting and the value for the header is "Chinese". To learn more see our Introduction to Bulk Uploading and our guides for Bulk Uploading

1. Go to: Settings > Channels

2. Expand eBay Options

2. Scroll down to Listing Time and Listing Type

The Listing Time dropdown allows you to set the default value for the duration of an eBay listing. The value "GTC" stands for Good 'Til Cancelled, the other values allow you to specify the number of days a listing should be active for.

The Listing Type dropdown allows you to select the default type of listing, either FixedPriceItem or Auction. Since we are setting up auctions, select Auction

For more information on listing types, see our Comparison of Listing Types guide.

Note: Auctions are sent to eBay as having one stock, even if the value for Stock in SureDone is higher. This means that once the item is sold the listing will end unless you turn on Auto Relist at the item level, or set the Listings Relist setting (in Settings > Channels, eBay Options) to on. With the Auction Relist toggle turned on, after the auction item is sold, SureDone will automatically relist the item again with a stock of 1 if there is stock remaining. The Auction Relist option will also relist the item if the eBay auction ends without the item selling.

Note: If you are listing the item on another marketplace, and the stock reaches 0, SureDone will automatically end the auction listing without sale, even if there is an existing bid.
