Ebay Channel Tour

Last Updated: Jan 31, 2017 06:03PM CET


Shopping Feed supports all categories for Ebay, with the exception of Ebay Motors. Search by keyword for the appropriate category. Here is a full list of available Ebay categories.


Category-specific settings

By dropping down and selecting one of your product categories, you can make changes to the settings specific to that category. You can manipulate just the settings for a specific category, helping you treat different types of products differently in in ways like shipping options, delivery locations, and buyer messages.

Manage Colors & Sizes

This setting allows you to change the field where Shopping Feed is pulling your variation data from. By default, this information is mapped to the dynamic fields {Autotag_color} and {Autotag_size}. These fields are filled based on settings found in the Manage Colors and Sizes page

This setting is preset. Do not make changes unless you have been instructed to do so. Changing this setting may cause listings to be removed from ebay

Product Condition

Use this setting to change the condition of your products. By default, products are listed on eBay as NEW, with the option of USED able to be set here. If your products are neither completely new or used, Shopping Feed can be set to send dynamic values in the product condition field by creating a custom field and setting it with a rule

Ebay accepts digits that represent product condition. To determine the condition of the products you are selling, see here for a full list and the corresponding condition ID

To set the condition to the appropriate condition value, follow the steps below.
  1. Go to Tools → Create new fields
  2. Create a new field called Ebay Condition and fill its value with the appropriate condition value, and save.
  3. Map your newly created field to the condition field in your Ebay Settings, and scroll down to click save.

Store Categories

Similar to a physical store, your eBay Store categories are the aisles and shelves that let you organize and display your items to buyers. By selecting the most appropriate category for your product, you’ll help buyers find your items in search results. You can assign your categories into two Ebay categories.

Your Store Categories helps your listing be found, and to help your viewers browse other products of yours quickly and easily. Set your Main Category using the drop down, as well as you Secondary Category. These categories affect the default template, which helps display all your categories in the listing. Learn more about Ebay categories here.


By default, the Ebay channel lists your products using a basic eBay template automatically, helping your listings take on a more professional look. You can edit the template in preview mode (by default) or you can toggle to HTML mode to give you more editing capabilities.

Edit a template to be used for products in specific category by using the dropdown to select the category of your choice. This is helpful when users want to write custom product information about an entire category, but not show this for other categories, as it would not be appropriate for all products.


Always make sure to save your templates before switching to another category template.

You can insert {dynamic fields} into your Ebay template. For instance, making your product weights and descriptions appear in your template is simple and easy to do. Click on All Usable Fields to see the product fields you can insert into the template, and simply write them into your template, making sure to use {braces} around the field. Preview your new template before saving.



Ebay Category Features are extra product data options, determined by the product category. To learn the available features for any given category, and the acceptable values you can use for them in AutoTag, the folks at Frooition have made a handy tool for your use.
