Schedule eBay Auctions Overview

Check out this short tour on creating eBay auctions for an individual product.

SellerCloud can schedule eBay auctions for a future time. While doing this on eBay directly will incur a charge, scheduling on SellerCloud will automatically post auctions at the scheduled time for free!

Important! The Windows service eBayProductListingService must be enabled to allow a recurring auction. This service can be enabled by SellerCloud Support.

Posting auctions individually

To post an auction manually for an individual product:

  1. Open the particular product’s Toolbox and click eBay Listing Manager.
  2. Click Add New Listing.
  3. Select an existing title or create a new one, and click Create New Listing.
  1. On the eBay Posting page, click the Auction option at the top right and select duration.
  2. On the bottom right corner, click Schedule Posting and set a date and time.
The date and time is the date and time zone of your database/server’s location. Shared servers are generally located in U.S. Eastern Standard time zones.
  1. To get the item to get listed on eBay now, click Post to eBay.
  2. After the item is successfully posted on eBay, it will receive an eBay Listing ID on the top left corner. Clicking the ID will open the eBay page. (In the image below, the listing has a temporary ID, which is assigned to the listing until it is posted.)
