Manage Unpaid eBay Orders

eBay orders will import as unpaid in Sellercloud if you haven’t fetched an Open Auth Token from the Actions menu on the Company Settings page.
Sometimes eBay orders download without payment. This may be due to a number of reasons:
  • The seller does not require immediate payment, and the buyer did not pay yet.
  • The payment record comes from the payment gateway, like PayPal, rather than from eBay. Typically, Sellercloud will instantly import the payment using the matching transaction ID, but this process can be delayed for several reasons, including:
    • Unpaid eBay orders will download without the Ship To address. This is because Sellercloud uses the finalized address from the payment record, rather than what is supplied by eBay. When the payment record is pulled in, the Ship To address will update.
    • Unpaid eBay orders will reserve inventory. If the buyer does not pay and the order is cancelled on eBay, Sellercloud will retrieve the order status and mark the order as Cancelled, which releases the reserve.
    • When the buyer pays, Sellercloud will automatically retrieve the updated information from PayPal and mark the order as paid. To manually poll PayPal payments, use the Refresh from eBay/PayPal action on the Manage Orders page or Refresh Order from eBay/PayPal on the order details page.
You can reserve inventory for unpaid, pending orders by enabling Enable eBay Pending Order Service in client settings and configuring the eBayPendingOrderServices service. Sellercloud Support can turn on this service.

Managing eBay feedback

Feedback for eBay can be managed from Sellercloud both for leaving and receiving feedback. eBay feedback is important as both sellers and buyers get ranked based on positive feedback. Leaving positive feedback about the buyer may motivate the buyer to reciprocate with positive feedback about the seller. Being informed about negative feedback from the buyer enables sellers to address that situation accordingly.

Feedback can be automatically generated for eBay orders. (This is generated by eBayOrderService)

Click here to learn how to leave automatic feedback messages on eBay orders.

  1. Go to Client Settings > Enable eBay Automatic Feedback.
  2. Open a Company > eBay Settings > Feedback Messages.
  3. Enter a message > Save.

When the order comes in, the feedback message will immediately be sent and left on the order.

The feedback emails are being sent based on the ShipDate. Feedback emails will not be sent for orders that are not shipped yet.

Learn how to auto-generate feedback request emails here.
