eBay Price Sync

As of Hotfix H576, the Price Update feature will pass updates regardless of the method used to change them (Scripts, automated and manual imports, manual changes and Direct Database updates), provided that Price has a specific Source and SubSource value for that channel.

1. Enabling eBay Price Synchronisation

  • 1.1 Settings (Fig 1.1) -> Channel Integration. (Fig 1.2) 
  • 1.2 Select the 'Config' option corresponding to the eBay channel. (Fig 1.3)
(Fig 1.1)  (Fig 1.2)  (Fig 1.3)
  • 1.3 Tick the Update Pricing option (Fig 1.4)
(Fig 1.4)

2. How eBay Price Synchronisation works

eBay price synchronisation is designed to speed up the process of updating eBay once a Linnworks stock item has had its listing price manually updated and saved, once enabled the live listing will be updated automatically within 5 minutes of the change being applied in Linnworks.

Note : automatic eBay price updates only work where the country specific code has been added as part of the SubSource in the Listing Price
EBAY0 by itself will not work.
