Link with eBay to sync sales and payments

Will you be adding the same feature as you do with the paypal feed?
i.e linking direct to ebay pulling the sales in, So all my/our sales from eBay will be added to sales invoices (but with better descriptions than what it does for paypal feed descriptions)

Although paypal will still be an option to pay that way so avoiding duplicates will been to be a factor…

cheers

Hi @Si-L

There are no plans at the moment, but we’ll certainly monitor the interest in this feature here.

This may explain more…

I’ve just had the invitation to eBay Managed Payments (which I’m ignoring) if they force me to switch any time soon I’m really pooping myself as to how I’m going to manage to record the transactions in QF.

I love the PayPal feed and really, REALLY hope you can do something similar with eBay managed payments. I’d happily stick some money in the QF Dev’s Christmas pot if this could happy quickly.

We just looking at moving to kashflow / quickbooks (among others) as from what i can work out they at least link with ebay, so it’s a start…

Hi @FTTrading @Si-L

This is currently being looked into, in terms of feasibility. We’ll keep you posted.

With Kashflow and QuickBooks they use an intermediary to pull Ebay data. KashFlow use ConnectMyApps which you’d need to licence separately. You can effectively achieve the same thing with Zapier.

It seems Ebay are rolling out Managed Payments this year and they have a brand new API that developers can use to retrieve transaction and payout information.

It may be possible for us to build a direct link to the Managed Payments API, although there is quite a bit of work needed to set that up, so we’d need to see reasonable demand.

Having a user already on the new Managed Payments platform would be a great start, so if you are in that position please PM me or @QFSupport and we can look at potentially working with you to build a feed.

Getting desperate, just had this email from eBay :sob: They are forcing sellers to move !

eBay already manages payments for thousands of sellers. Time’s flying by and you only have a few weeks left to register for managed payments.
This is your third reminder that your account will be enabled starting late July - please register by July 15 . If you miss the registration deadline, from late July, we will start to restrict your ability to create new listings .

Hi @FTTrading

Thanks for the update. We’ll be sure to let you know if anything changes here, although I can’t provide any timelines or guarantees at the moment.

You can in the meantime either log bulk sales or import a CSV of the data from eBay. Please let us know if you need any help with this when the time comes.
