How to Sell on eBay With Ecwid

Ecwid merchants have two easy ways to put products in front of millions of eBay buyers through the Codisto.LINQ and Trimpo apps in the Ecwid App Market.

Automatically publish new products, update inventory and sync sales — eBay acts as an additional storefront seamlessly integrated with your online shop.

A New Sales Channel for Your Store: eBay

How to attract more buyers without spending a ton? This is an essential question every seller is asking themselves, and we at Ecwid have an answer — omnichannel selling.

Imagine being able to open additional physical locations with no rent and zero maintenance cost and no employees. Wouldn’t it be awesome to also manage all of those locations from a single place and keeping all your inventory in sync?

Ecwid has been making this possible since 2009. You can add your store to as many sites, blogs, marketplaces and social media pages as you want and manage all of those from a single Ecwid Control Panel. Facebook, Google Shopping, WordPress blogs and many other places are available for your store, you only need to log in.

One of the busiest marketplaces out there — eBay — is also available for Ecwid merchants with just a few clicks. There are two apps in the Ecwid App Market that integrate your store with these marketplaces: Codisto.LINQ and Trimpo.*

Upload Your Products to eBay in a Few Clicks

Traditionally, if you wanted to sell your products through another online channel, you would have to re-create your product listings on those channels. This is time consuming, tedious, and what’s worse, you would have to manage multiple sets of inventory, while still potentially overselling your stock.

The apps mentioned above integrate your product catalog with marketplaces. You simply choose products from the Ecwid catalog that you want to list on eBay, and voilà, your products are now on eBay available for millions of buyers. The apps upload product pictures, descriptions, prices and inventory levels.

So, what’s the difference between the apps and which one should you use? Let’s compare them.

Try different ways to sell to find out where your customers are. eBay is a crowded marketplace that can help sellers of niche, rare products connect with their fans.

We asked an actual eBay seller, Dominique Frossard, to share his vision. Dominique sells vintage Jeep Cherokee parts.

Dominique Frossard

The buyer’s attention is limited to the product they are looking for. Branding and design are not in the focus. A teenager can sell his radio at the same level as the professional business. — Dominique Frossard, the owner of JeepCherokeeChief store.
