Setting up eBay on Bigcommerce

The Bigcommerce integration with eBay can push products from your store to eBay's listings, and receive order information from eBay for those products. The product information is only pushed one way and does not sync later, so if you want inventory, price, and other product information to sync in real time, you may want to consider using a multichannel-listing app.

Getting your eBay account information

Setting up the integration with eBay involves creating an eBay developer account. This allows you to link eBay with third parties. You then link the developer account to your existing eBay seller account, and put your developer account information into Bigcommerce. This will let Bigcommerce list products on behalf of your eBay seller account.

You will need an eBay seller account before following these steps.

1. Create an eBay developer account through the eBay Developers Program. After filling out the form in the link provided, you will need to confirm the account via email.

2. Log in to your developer account. You should be taken to your My Account page.

3. Click Generate Production Keys in the Application Keys menu.

4. Click Get a User Token in the Tools menu to the lower left. The user token is what links your developer account with your seller account.

Adding your eBay Store

An eBay Store is a an additional paid subscription service that eBay offers buyers. It allows the owner to create a central location for presenting their products for sale, and lets you create custom categories to arrange your products.

If you have an eBay Store at the time when you configure your eBay settings in your control panel, it will be automatically detected. If you purchase an eBay Stores subscription at a later date, you can click the Check for eBay Store link at the bottom of the settings page to manually check for your store. Your store's name will be displayed instead of this link:
