Import your products from eBay to WooCommerce

Great news for active eBay sellers who want to sell their products on their WordPress powered website as well:

The new Import from eBay to WooCommerce plugin will create an exact copy of your eBay store right in WooCommerce – including all products, variations and store categories.

Since this plugin uses WP-Lister to connect to eBay, you need to install WP-Lister first – both WP-Lister Pro or the free version will do. In return you’ll find all your listings already set up in WP-Lister after the import – so you are ready to go if you want to use WP-Lister to manage all your products in one place from now on.

You’ll find more details and screenshots on the plugin page.

  1. beautiful plugin!
    but it would be greater if would be compatible also with jigoshop!
    could be possibile an integration?
    i am using an ecommerce plugin that perform a wordpress-based blog into a shop. i would like to use this plugin but seems not compatible with jigoshop because when i switch to products and after selected them it cannot possible to see in the cascade menu any option about the listings…..
    so thank you for your attention!

  2. Hi Luca,

    I’m afraid support for Jigoshop won’t be implemented in WP-Lister until next year. Currently, top of the list is support for Amazon – as requested by many customers.

    But support for Jigoshop hasn’t been requested at all until now and seems to be a feature that about 0.1 percent of the userbase finds important. (sorry)

    If you want to use WP-Lister or the Import plugin: a migration from Jigoshop to WooCommerce should be quite simple and painless…

  3. UPDATE: Support for Jigoshop has been implemented in the latest version.

  4. Hi there,
    Great plugin, I’m deciding whether to buy this plugin to get ebay items into Woocommerce or getting the WP-Lister to get the items from WC into eBay. Which option would you recommend and easier. eBay to WC or WC to eBay.

    Thanks,
    Trep

  5. Hi Trep,

    if you want to keep your items in sync, you’ll need WP-Lister Pro which is designed to work WP to eBay, not the other way round.

    Since it’s way easier to create a product in WooCommerce than listing an item on eBay, WP-Lister allows you to manage all your reoccuring tasks like listing and relisting items, processing orders with tracking ID and send sellers feedback from within WordPress / WooCommerce.

    The import plugin on the other hand is not a “long term solution” like WP-Lister Pro is. It is designed to allow sellers who already have listed all their items on eBay to populate an empty WooCommerce site with it and start using WP-Lister from that point on.

    Let me know if you have any other questions.

    1. Thanks Matt!

    Your plugin looks really good. Is it compatible with WP eEcomerce/ get shopped.org?

    Thanks Paul

    1. Hi Paul,

      sorry, but the plugin “Import from eBay to WooCommerce” does work only with WooCommerce, not with WP e-Commerce or any other shop plugin.

  7. I am interested in listing my products on my website. I am unable to “demo” this product.

    1. I’m sorry, but there is no demo version available for the Import from eBay plugin – but I replied to your email with some more details.

  8. Hi,

    Does this product work for importing any Ebay product or is it only working for importing products you have in your own store?

    1. Hi Stephen,

      no, the importer is only meant to import all active listings from your eBay account to WooCommerce. Except for a “single item import feature” where you enter any eBay item ID to import – which is mostly intended for testing / debugging purposes – there is no UI to select existing products from other sellers.

      Matt

      1. Hi Matt,

        does it necessarily have to be an ebay shop, oder can it be a normal ebay account, too?

        Thanks
        Kian

        1. Just like WP-Lister the Importer works with any eBay account – you don’t have to have an eBay store or a sellers account.

          But if you don’t have an eBay store, there obviously won’t be any custom Store Categories to import – so the importer will only import products but no categories.

          Matt

  9. Hi Matt,

    can you choose which Ebay store categories to import or does it just import all of them?

    Many thanks,
    Richard

    1. I’m sorry Richard, but the plugin will always import all active listings from your eBay account – the only other options would be to import sold or unsold items instead, but you can’t filter by category before running the import.

      kind regards,

      Matt

  10. I imported all my items and everything seemed to go ok. Went thru and adjusted shipping based on my rate table(cause I wasn’t sure if shipping transferred over) many of my items are mutivariable. All was going good it seemed and now I try to look at an item from customer point of view and keep getting a 404 error message. Everything looks fine in admin area tho.
    Any ideas. help?

      kind regards,

  11. Does this allow you to import you ebay listing content and sell through your own channel? (Avoiding the eBay final value fee)

    I’m looking for a plugin that allows me to do that and sell through woocommerce NOT eBay, yet import my products from my eBay. I this isn’t that, what plugin is?

    1. You’re right John, that’s what this plugin allows you to do. You will still need to install WP-Lister and connect it to your eBay account – but if you only want to sell on your site and not on eBay anymore, the free version of WP-Lister will work just fine as you do not need the inventory sync of WP-Lister Pro.

      Matt
