eBay Import Listing Quantities


This makes it possible to control the stock levels that are sent to the channel during the inventory synchronisation so that it is not required to share all of your stock on a specific channel. This allows you to manage your listing to reduce the risk of over selling.

Please note for older eBay integration that this is only enabled if the option "Use SKU (Custom Label)" is ticked. For newer integrations (post patch 512) this option has been removed and it is assumed that all listings use SKU (Custom Label)

  • This specifies the maximum level that will be sent to the channel. 
  • The level published will never be higher even if there is more stock within Linnworks.


  • This enables you to force the listing to end when the stock level gets to the specified amount as opposed to the default value of zero. 
  • Helping to give you a stock buffer so that you don't run out or oversell.


  • This will send up a percentage of the current stock level. 
  • For example if you have 10 in stock and set the percentage to 50, 5 will be sent to the channel. 
  • Please be aware that Linnworks will always round down.

Sample CSV

  • This data is stored against the Channel SKU as it appears in the mapping screen. 
  • Each Linnworks stock item can be listed multiple times on different channels. 
  • Please see Fig 2.1 for an example csv file
