How do I assign stock to my eBay listings?
In order for your eBay sales to be imported into Platinum with the minimum of effort, it is important that the items sold can be identified by their corresponding Platinum stock codes.
In each of your eBay listings you should enter the Platinum stock code into the:
- "SKU" (Stock Keeping Unit) or
- "Custom Label" fields.
These are not generally available in the basic eBay " Sell an item" interface. Instead you must use one of the many available power selling tools, such as eBay's online Selling Manager Pro. Using such a tool is essential when you have a high number or turnover of eBay sales.
Selling Manager Pro
To assign stock codes in Selling Manager Pro:
- Log in to eBay.
- Go to your Selling Manager Pro console. One way to do this is by hovering above the [Activity] tab and clicking " Selling Manager Pro" from the list.
- Choose your inventory on the left hand side.
- Click on a product.
- At the top, underneath the product name, there is a field called "Custom label (SKU or other unique number)".
- Enter your Platinum stock code here.
- Click [Save] at the bottom and repeat for each product.
