Defaults make future listing creation easier by setting default listing values, but you can still easily edit for individual or groups of products later.
Here is how you can set your default values for eBay.
Open marketplace connect > Settings > Update ebay defaults
‘Web Price’ creates a live sync to your store prices (change a price in Shopify and marketplace listings get updated automatically) but you can also choose a constant value (no live sync), % or $ increase/decrease (relative to your web price with live sync) and apply rounding if desired.
'Stock Level’ creates a live sync to your Shopify inventory (which gets automatically reduced after sales on marketplaces) but you can also choose a fixed value (no live sync), a buffer (e.g. choosing a buffer of 2 when your webstore inventory is 5 will display 3 on listings) and max quantity (e.g. choosing a max quantity of 5 will always show 5 on listings unless webstore inventory drops below 5 where it will show the actual inventory).
You can add multiple default shipping services for both domestic & international as well as specify ship to locations.
Return periods in days and returns type (exchange/money back) can also be set.
There is an option to enable ‘auto-categorization’ which compares the product being listed with similar products already on eBay and determines the most appropriate eBay category. Initially, items are listed in ‘Other’ and after a few minutes, the category is updated (hence please be patient for auto-cat to finish). If you select ‘Disabled’, you will need to manually set categories for individuals or groups of products in the Marketplace Listings grid (see below) prior to listing.
(Note - The quality of the automated category selected is determined by a number of factors (e.g. quality of product data and number of similar items on eBay). So whilst it can never be perfect, when applied in bulk across your entire webstore catalog, auto-cat can save hours of setup time by automating the process of finding relevant categories. Of course, we recommend you check you are happy with the selected categories but generally it is far quicker to change any categories you aren’t happy with after auto-cat has finished than it is to manually set each one instead of using auto-cat. But it’s up to you, if your catalog is simple you can easily set manually prior to listing).
Choose if new products added to your online store should be automatically listed on eBay with your chosen default settings (make sure you are happy with all your default settings prior to enabling this!)
