eBay Properties Page Overview
Check out this short tutorial on eBay listing management!
The eBay Properties page under Product Summary > Toolbox > eBay Properties contains all the product-specific eBay settings.
You can set default values company-wide in Company Settings under eBay Attribute Defaults, but these can be overridden at the product level by clicking Action Menu > Manage Listing Overrides > Go.
If a product lacks the proper eBay values and attributes, a red X will appear before actions can be completed. Hover over the X to read the error message. Show me where.
You can also preview, post, and revise listings for a product from here. Read more about listing to eBay. Note: Shipping Weight and DIM fields are now attributes that are required by SellerCloud to list to eBay.
The table below describes the property settings:
SETTING / ACTION
Check to allow for an eBay listing. If not enabled, existing eBay listings will be updated with a zero quantity.
Using the eBay catalog can help to list a product more easily. Learn more about using the eBay Catalog.
Auction Start Price
The lowest price you are willing to sell your item when selling it in an Auction format. Bidding will start at this price.
Buy It Now Price
The price offered in both the fixed price format and as an option in the Auction format. To map the eBay BIN price to the Site Price:
The lowest price that the seller is willing to accept for the item. If submitted bids do not reach this price, all bids will be rejected.
Second Chance Enabled
If enabled, a message will be sent to bidders with an offer to buy the item at their last bid amount. The buyer must decide whether to accept the offer. This message is only sent if the product has available quantity.
Enabling this option will display a field Second Chance Offer Min Price to enter the minimum acceptable bid amount at which the second chance offer will be sent.
Safety Quantity helps reduce the risk of overselling by subtracting a number of units from available quantity. For example, if 5 units are available and Safety Quantity is set to 1, only 4 will be sent to eBay.
You can set Safety Quantity at a company level, so it defaults for all products, but you can override this here at the product level. At the company level, there are two settings: one for regular products and one for replenishable products. Typically Safety Quantity is set to "0" when replenishable since there is no strict inventory for replenishable products.
Fixed Price Listing Qty
Quantity shown on eBay when listing in a fixed priced format.
When enabled, your eBay listing will continually post with the quantity set in the Fixed Price Listing Quantity regardless of actual available quantity.
Best Offer Enabled
Will let you receive a customer offer that you can either accept or reject. eBay notifies the seller by email with an Accept or Reject button. Clicking this setting shows these 2 fields:
If there is no value (or a 0 value in both boxes),all offers will be available for review by seller.

When enabled, this allows a fixed price listing to be posted automatically, if there is available inventory and the product is ready. When the item comes back in stock, it will auto-list.
Use Min Listing Duration
When enabled, will show a Min. Listing Duration drop-down to choose a duration time for your auction.
