As well as importing your product listings directly from eBay to Cloud Commerce Pro, you can create new listings directly from your inventory onto your eBay account. This guide covers listing products from the Selling screens.

1. Click the selling button

To enter the sales channels section click the selling button.

2. Choose your sales channel

Choose which sales channel you wish to use, in this case eBay UK. You may have many channels to choose from depending on the number of accounts and different sales channels you operate.

3. Expand the category

Choose the master category to locate the item you wish to list. You can also search for the item from the search buttons at the top of the screen.

4. Check if your item is excluded

If your item has not been added to the sales channel previously you may need to click the excluded slider to reveal currently excluded products.

5. Click the add button

Click the add button to start the listing process for the chosen product range. Please note if your product range has many variations you can list all of them at the same time using the multi list option or just individual variations as you choose.

6. The price and stock screen

Next you will be presented with the price and stock screen. The first column allows you to activate the Pseudo stock feature. This feature allows you to force a override stock level to the channel that is different to your actual stock level. You may use this feature to show stock on a channel that you don’t have in your inventory or you may use it to artificially lower the stock levels on the channel to create urgency from your buyers.

There are three types of Pseudo stock to choose from:

1. Static Regardless of real stock – Sets a static stock level on your channel and when you sell an item Cloud Commerce Pro will increase your Amazon listing back to the same level.

2. Decrementing Regardless of real stock – Will start at the level you set and go down to zero.

3. Decrementing Maintained by real stock – With this option your stock will decrement until it meets your real stock level then will follow that down to zero.

If you do not wish to use Pseudo stock but wish to use your real inventory figure, ignore steps 6 and 7.

7. Set the Pseudo stock figure

Set your starting Pseudo stock figure after selecting the type of Pseudo stock you wish to use.

If you do not wish to use Pseudo stock but wish to use your real inventory figure, ignore steps 6 and 7.

8. Set all prices

If you wish to set prices on all the products in the range tick the “price all items same” box.

The price that is there by default is called your base price. This is set on your product page and is simply a guide price you set when you first add your products to your inventory. It can be overridden at any time.

9. Set price

Then set the price you require by typing either into the net or gross price box or just leave the base price if you are happy with it.

10. Click Save

Click save to proceed to the next screen.

11. Search for your eBay category

Enter one or more keywords to locate your eBay category to promote your goods in.

12. Select the category from the list

Select the category from the list. If you have an eBay store you will also see a second category selector to choose your own store category as well.

13. Listing Images

If you wish to add listings images you can do that by clicking the upload button in the listing images section. They will be displayed when the listing first loads on eBay.

The main listing images shows general views of the item you’re selling. If you like, you can show all the variations of the item you’re selling in a single main picture (such as all available colours of a pair of shoes). The main picture is used as a default if you don’t add any variation pictures.

If you don’t add any listing images Cloud Commerce Pro will automatically select a set of images from the first variation in the range.

14. Select the images

Select the images you require from your PC.

15. Other variations

Once you close the matched listing screen you will see the main listing screen. You can also access the other variations in the range from the pop up menu at the side.

In the left box you can change the account defaults for future listings.

In the right box you choose what settings to use for this listing. You can ignore the right hand box if the default settings meet your needs.

17. Select the drop downs for eBay

Choose which options is to be shown as a drop down selector on eBay if you are creating a multi listing. If you are creating a single listing, this option won’t be available.

18. Choose the image switch option

On eBay you can set which option will be selected when a user clicks on a different image in your set. For example, choose colour if you wish to change to different colour products if the user clicks on a different colour product in your range.

19. Add more options

Cloud Commerce Pro passes many options through from your product inventory to your listing page automatically. Known options such as size and colour will be mapped automatically to the size and color fields in eBay. If you wish to add more options you can click the “Add New Option” button.
