Import your Ebay Store into ShopTab’s Facebook Shop

Creating situations for ebay sellers to broaden their selling opportunities is an important element to a successful growth strategy. According to the New York Times, users are spending more than 50 minutes a day on Facebook. Isn’t it time for ebay sellers to integrate your promotions and offerings into this platform to take advantage of these highly passionate users?

We think this is a perfect opportunity to integrate your products into a Facebook Shop. The ability to load your items into your Facebook fan page and have a full store environment, including a checkout system, allows you to fully participate in the emerging social selling boom.

Here are the steps you need to follow to set up your Facebook Store with ShopTab.

Step 1. Create your ShopTab account. Options are outlined here.

Step 2. Create an export file from your ebay account.

The option for the Turbo Lister provides for an import and export of the products in your ebay store.

Details about the Turbo Lister – http://pages.ebay.com/co/es-co/turbo_lister/
Support note on the file export – http://pages.ebay.com/turbo_lister/csv.html

Export your product file. Save it to your computer.

Note: Below outlines the fields that we need for a valid listing. The yellow ones are required and the green ones are optional. There will be over 90 columns but we only need those in the file listed below.

Step 3 (optional).  Save any current product listings in ShopTab.

If you have items listed in ShopTab already, you may want to save the file to your computer before we do the upload.  To do so, on the product listing page in admin, click on the Download (green button at bottom) and save the file to your computer. You’ll use this later if for some reason the file upload doesn’t work.

Step 4. Upload your ebay file into ShopTab.

– In ShopTab admin, click on Settings and then Product Feed (bottom option)

– Click to select the file you saved from ebay

– Map the fields – i.e. title to title, description to description….

– Upload the file. All products should be listed within a minute.

Step 5. Review your product listings

Give the system a minute to load the items. You can click the “Product” option or just refresh you page after 30 seconds or so. Additionally, the system will send you an email after the upload is complete.

Let us know if you have any questions.
