Video Transcript

In the previous videos we walked you through installing the Marketplaces Module, configuring it with your eBay account and setting up some Ebay listing details. Now we're ready to start creating some eBay product listings. An eBay product listing is a page a shopper would see when browsing through the eBay website. Here is an example of a product listing for a red coffee mug. You can create product listings on eBay like this one from inside of the Miva Merchant Admin. The first thing we need to do is configure a products Ebay listing settings, which once configured can be used like a template to quickly create eBay product listings over and over. Here we have an Apple Watch product that I want to list on eBay. Let's set up its Ebay listing settings by clicking into its Ebay Listing Settings tab. We’ll need to choose which listing detail we want this product listing to use. In this example the “Standard U.S. Detail in the previous video. Next we have to decide if we want to create product listings that are fixed price or auction. I'll choose fixed price for this example. Notice that the start price and reserve price are greyed out since these fields only pertain to auction listings. Let's set the “Buy It Now” price to $399. Down here we have a field called “Quantity” which is only available if you are setting up a fixed price listing. I’ll set this to 5, which means that every time I create a new product listing for this Apple watch product, it will have 5 Apple watches available to sell on eBay. When someone buys an Apple Watch, the listing will update to show that there are four left. Once all five of the watches are sold, the listing ends and no more watches can be bought from that particular listing page. Let's choose which primary category this listing should be in. We’ll choose Consumer Electronics and every time we're presented with a subcategory, we’ll want to choose one as well. So I've chosen “Gadgets and other Electronics” and then “Other Gadgets.” We can choose to “Auto Expire” a listing after a specific number of days, or we can choose “Good until cancelled,” which means this listing will run until all quantities of the product are sold. Next we have to declare their products condition; if it's new, if it's used, or what have you. This one is new, so I'll select a New. Down here we have a collection of item specifics. These are recommendations from eBay based on the primary category we chose up above. The bolded ones are required, but the more item specifics you can fill in the better off your product listing will be. This is branded Apple watch, and the manufacturer product number is this, Model is sport and finally check mark which product images you wish the listing to use. This product only has one image, so I’ll select it and then click on the “Update” button to save all of my work. That's it for the product listing settings.

We can now create listings for this product. To do that, we want to be in the eBay Product Listings tab. All we have to do here is click on the “Create Listings” button. A modal pops up letting us know how much eBay will charge us to create this listing. We accept the charges by clicking okay and we've successfully created a new product listing, which is informed by all of the settings we've configured in the Product Listing Settings, as well as the Listing Details Settings. We can view our listing page that shoppers see by clicking on this link here. Again note that there are five individual watch items for sale and once all five products are sold this particular listing ends. If we create a second listing, it will also appear on the screen like so and it will also have five products in that listing. That's it for creating product listings and the next video will show you how you can manage your eBay Product Listings and your eBay orders.
