Connect eBay to Zenventory

Prerequisites:

  • Must have Selling Manager or Selling Manager Pro to enable access to eBay’s Custom Label (SKU) field for listings
  • Before they can sync to Zenventory, all eBay products must have a unique SKU assigned.  If some of your products are missing a Custom Label (SKU) in eBay, you can add them using these steps.  Inventory synchronization will fail for any item missing a Custom Label (SKU) in eBay.
