AmeriCommerce grants store owners the ability to list and sell their products on eBay. This article will walk you through the process.
For using the integration, you will need to first authorize the app. Navigate to Tools > Apps & Addons > eBay. If the app has not been authorized yet, there will be an "Authorize Now" button. This will take you to eBay to login and approve the app.
After authorizing the connection, you will now be able to sell your products on eBay. To begin setting up products for eBay, go to Tools > Apps & Addons > eBay > eBay Listing Templates. Click New to add a new product.

Create a Listing
Note: Currently products with Variants and product groups are not able to list. The main method of listing products is via the product list. (Catalog > Products) When the integration is enabled, the "List Products on eBay" button will be available in More Actions
The option is also available via the Product Editor General Tab
Clicking the button will pull up a wizard to guide through the listing process. Step one is to choose a template and store for orders to sync back into.
Step 2 will show you the fees that will be charged to the eBay account. If there are any issues with the listing the errors will be shown inline and no fees will be shown.
Clicking "Save and List" will post the products to eBay and you will be given links to view the product listings
And that is all it takes!
The Product Name and description determine the listing title on the product description tab. Active listings will show in Tools > Apps & Addons > eBay > eBay Listings.
When an Item is sold on ebay OR when the listing expires it will be hidden from the default view. Expired and Completed listings can be viewed via Search Options
Once an order is placed on eBay it will be synced back to the store for fulfillment. The Order ID will be shown on the eBay Listing and can be edited from here (as well as the normal order List).
When the store adds a tracking number and marks the order as shipped, the tracking syncs back to eBay and the eBay order is marked as shipped.
