[Official] FAQ eBay Module


Recommended Posts

Hello , 


If you have a concern, make sure your module is up to date. Most of the time this will solve your problem and save you time.
Get the latest version here or install it directly from your Back Office, from the list of modules (version 1.5 and 1.6).


Warning :

  • Products less than 1 euro will not sync due to eBay restrictions.
  • Products with no images will not be synchronized due to eBay restrictions
  • EBay module does not take into account combinations made after synchronization, every time you use the generator combination of PrestaShop you again synchronize your products on eBay module.
  • Your stocks are above 0 for synchronization.


1) An update is available, how do I install it?


If you have already installed a version of the module and a new version is available, you can update it easily by downloading the zip file via the "Modules" tab in your back office. Do not reinstall (uninstall/ install) the module as this would remove all settings and product references between eBay and PrestaShop.

2) My eBay orders are not imported, what should I do?


First, make sure you have the latest version of the module here. Then, it is necessary that:

  1. the order is confirmed and paid on eBay.
  2. the products it contains are in stock and have been synchronized via the eBay module.

The “orders history” tab provides information about the reasons of any sync or import failures.

3) I wish I could import orders from eBay to PrestaShop without syncing my products. Is this possible?


Yes, it is possible. To do this enter the same value in the field "Reference" in the product description on PrestaShop and in the field "CustomLabel" for this product on eBay which you can find in your “Active listings” tab in your eBay Selling Manager and Selling Manager Pro.
After doing this the module will be able to match products and orders and orders are automatically imported into PrestaShop every 30 minutes.

4) All of my products are listed in the "Other" category in my eBay shop. Yet in the eBay module I configured the "Categories settings" tab. What is the problem?

The configuration of categories in the “Categories settings“ tab refers only to the regular eBay categories, not your customized shop categories. The module does not yet support listing items on eBay in your individual shop categories which is why they all are placed in “Other” in your shop.

For now, the only way to assign shop categories to these listings is on eBay by editing the active listings, either individually or in the bulk editing flow in the “Active listings” tab in your Selling Manager or Selling ManagerPro.
If you make more changes to these eBay listings via the module afterwards the assigned shop categories will not be affected and remain in place.

5) I want to sell to other countries – is this possible?

Currently you can list on the eBay sites in France, UK, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, Poland, Belgium, Austria, Switzerland.

With one PrestaShop account you can list only on one eBay site.
If you offer Europe- or worldwide shipping buyers in these regions will also be able to find your listing on their eBay sites (e.g. German buyers on eBay.de).

6) When I want to sync my products with eBay, the module tells me that there 0 products to synchronize although I do have products. What is the problem?

For a product to be synced with eBay by the module, two conditions need to be fulfilled:
- The product has to be in stock with a quantity of at least 1
- The PrestaShop categories that your products are in have to matched with an eBay category in the “Categories settings” tab. The reason for the sync failure could be that your products are in the in the PrestaShop default category which might not be matched with an eBay category. To resolve this you should change the PrestaShop default category of the product to one that is matched to an eBay category.

7) I cannot register my module when I authenticate on eBay, the module does not respond and the loading symbol continues to run. What is the problem?

First, try clearing the browser cookies and try again. If it still does not work, please try a different browser.

Skip permissions of / ebay / ajax 755 OR

There is a difference between the registered user in the module used and the member

to connect to eBay

8) What are multi variation listings?

Instead of creating a number of separate listings for a product that has a choice of options, you can create a single multi-quantity fixed price listing that includes all the variations you offer. For example, a T-shirt might come in multiple colors and sizes. Buyers can select which variation they want to purchase from the single listing. (see eBay help here: http://pages.ebay.co...variations.html)
The eBay module allows you to list your multi variation PrestaShip products as multi variation listings on eBay. However only selected eBay categories (e.g. Fashion) support this feature.
To successfully list your multi variation products on eBay you have to ensure that you list them in an eBay category that supports this feature (those marked with * in “Categories settings” tab section of the eBay module).

9) When I import my products to PrestaShop via csv, via a module or directly through phpMyAdmin these products are not listed on eBay. Why? 

Synchronization with eBay happens only in the following cases:
- When you click "Sync" in the “eBay sync” tab in the module
- When you add / edit / delete a product via the PrestaShop product page and this product is in a category that is synchronized with eBay
- When a product sells on PrestaShop
- When a product sells on eBay (paid eBay orders are automatically imported every 30 minutes).

10) I cannot export products with more than 120 variations.

Unfortunately the eBay API limits the number to 120 variations but you can add more manually by editing the item on eBay.

11) Is there any need to create an eBay shop to use the PrestaShop module?
No, there is no need to have an eBay shop to use the PrestaShop eBay module. With a shop subscription can lower your eBay insertion fees significantly and reduce your upfront cost. The eBay help page with all the relevant information is here:http://pages.ebay.co.../storefees.html


12) How to uninstall the module completely?

Warning: This operation erases the entire eBay configurations but may be sometimes necessary.

Once uninstalled, the links between the eBay listings and the PrestaShop products will be lost. You will need to delete your products on ebay and relist all your products. 

Step one: 

you need to retrieve the mail store for that you must address: 
=> Go to "Preferences" => "Store Contacts" => " Contact details" retrieve the email address of the store 
Step two: 
you must go to the eBay module: 
=> To the end of the URL in the address bar 
"&DELETE_EVERYTHING_EBAY=Shop email" (add the email address you retrieved earlier) 
This means that you must have in your address bar this: 
"http: //myshop.co...odule_name=ebay&DELETE_EVERYTHING_EBAY=Shop email"
=> Click to enter 
=> Reload the page 
The eBay module is uninstalled properly
