You can check the products identified on your Ebay account before importing them into Prestashop.  To do this, click “Show the list”.  Once your products have been identified on Ebay, you must indicate into which category you want to import them.  A drop down menu is provided where you will find all the categories available in your Prestashop environment.  Select one and click on “Start import”.

In our example, 14 products have been found including 6 that will be imported and 8 to be skipped. The 6 products are being imported into our environment.

Checking results in the Prestashop catalogue

When transferring your products from your eBay store in PrestaShop, the following information is imported:

⦁ Product illustration
⦁ The name of your item
⦁ Product condition : new, second-hand
⦁ Text description of your product
⦁ Sell price excluding VAT
⦁ The quantity
⦁ Different versions including quantities and prices

PLEASE NOTE:  NO PRICE CONVERSION HAS BEEN MADE.  THEREFORE THE CURRENCY FOR YOUR EBAY ACCOUNT MUST BE THE SAME CURRENCY USED IN YOUR PRESTASHOP ENVIRONMENT!

Creating new product categories:

After importing all your products into a single PrestaShop category, you must now divide them into categories of your choice. It is very important to complete this step before configuring the Official eBay module as the module will ask you to set mapping between your PrestaShop categories and categories available on eBay.
