How to Sell your Products on eBay with Odoo

Functional

The convenience of home shopping has opened a new way for both small and large-scale sellers to reach their customers on a wider scale. The customer range has been widened and the investment in infrastructure has been saved for many small-scale retailers. All categories of products have found their way into the online market. From stationery to food, even perishables are now available online. Dedicated stores have come into place for all categories and big names like Amazon, eBay, Flipkart, and others have expanded their ranges to all imaginable products. That apart there are services sold online with the changing market. The pandemic has pushed even the few reluctant customers to now enjoy the benefits of online shopping.

The greatest advantage of these online seller platforms is the reachability. With an in-place system for reaching most of the localities, we have the option to surpass the geographical barrier of customers. Selling on an online platform saves the sellers of the worries when it comes to deliveries and reachability. The online platforms also offer the seller a ready base of customers, whose trust and confidence has been won by the service of these platforms. Though standing out in the millions of options available is not easy, there is no doubt about the quick outreach of the products sold on any online platform.Many companies have developed their own online shopping websites but not many of them require this but can simply sell their products on various online shopping sites.

For a business moving to an online platform or for someone who has expanded sales to an online platform, integrating with an established online platform can be a good beginning. Some of the large scale sellers continue to sell on various online sites, despite having an eCommerce site of their own. This, as mentioned above, is often a byproduct of the reachability and larger customer base that the online platforms offer. With commendable sale strategies and attractive promotions, taking the product to the customers has been made easier on these online sites.

eBay is one of the well established online shopping platforms that has been successful in improving itself as a resonating name among the others. eBay has a very easy seller registration process and offers one of the best shipping options. Ebay has established itself as one of the most successful multi sided platforms that connect the buyers and sellers without any ownership of the sold products. The working process of these sites is beneficial for both the seller and site owing to low cost running. eBay is more seller oriented than most online platforms. Ebay does not store the products sold through their website and thus integrating our inventory with eBay can ease the seller processes for us.

ebay connector

Under sales modules of the Odoo app store, amazon and eBay connectors will be available. The amazon connector will import the amazon orders and sync deliveries. The eBay connector would make it possible to publish the products from our inventory on eBay. We can install the eBay connector from this and look at the configuration process.

Configuring eBay

Once the connector has been installed, from the developer portal, we have to create a developer account. This would allow us to generate tokens. After this has been done, we can create sandbox keys and production keys. The generated values ??and tokens will be useful to integrate the sales module with eBay.  

Once the account set up is done, open the sales module and go to configuration. As we scroll down, we will be able to find the eBay settings. Here we can fill the various fields given and save the changes.

This would integrate the eBay connector with the sales. 

Add storage location

After the account token has been saved, we can add the storage location of the products. The Add other countries link can be used to add more countries in the storage location. The link would direct us to the list of countries and we can enable use on eBay in the country list.

The eBay option has the fields to change the website for product display. We can also modify the currency. We can create and add currencies to the list with Activate other currencies link.

We can also assign a sales team for the eBay sales in the configuration. We can select from the list of sales teams and edit the details of the sales team if necessary. We can add a team leader, invoicing target, and the team members. To add more sales teams , we can do so from the sales teams option from the configuration menu.

Product Configuration

We can create products from the sales module or from the inventory module and sell, rent or purchase them depending on the options available. Once we open the product's dashboard from the Sales module or the Inventory module, the list of all products we have created will be displayed. We can edit the existing product by selecting the concerned product or create a new one as required.

The details of the product can be entered and we can choose from the options to sell the product on eBay. 

Listing on ebay

Enabling Sell on eBay would add the eBay tab to product configuration. We can fill in the product details for publishing on eBay. The product can opt for auction or a fixed-price sales.
