Are you already making money on Shopify and now considering expanding your business to an online marketplace like eBay? Or, perhaps, you'd like to use both Shopify and eBay simultaneously?

Good news: Shopify can be integrated with eBay, so you can easily migrate your products, orders, and customer information from one platform to another or keep them working on both.

However, the Shopify eBay integration is currently available for the business's address set in one of these countries: Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, and Germany.

If your business is based in these locations, scroll down for a quick, easy guide on how to connect your Shopify store to eBay. Remember, the more nets you have in the water, the more likely you will catch a fish.

Shopify gives you two options:

To ensure your eBay listings appear in relevant shopper searches, include the following types of keywords in your listing titles:

  • Brand
  • Model
  • Product description
  • Color
  • Size

Step 4: Customize and publish selected products

Next, you will see a table that lists all the products you have chosen to publish.

Customize your eBay listings

Before your eBay listings go live, you can make changes to many aspects, including:

  • Product title and description
  • Category and Details
  • Store categories
  • eBay product catalog
  • Business policies
  • Product Images
  • Package settings

Once you've finished, click Save & Publish.

Now, you officially sell on both Shopify and eBay. Your very first order on eBay is coming!
