General Settings

Under the General Settings you get to configure your listings by increasing or decreasing the price of eBay Listings, adjust stock levels, sync price from WooCommerce, import eBay categories, and much more. Here is a list of settings available under this section- 

  • Stock Levels

This field controls the amount of stock you can list on eBay. You can select Maximum Stock from the dropdown and enter a number in the adjacent field. By doing this, you can set a cap on the amount of stock to be listed on eBay for all your WooCommerce products. 

For example, if you set a Maximum Stock of 5 and you’re trying to upload a product/variation with more than 5, then the product will be listed with a stock of 5. If the stock you are trying to list is less than 5, then the product will be listed with the default stock and not the maximum stock. Use this option if you are starting to sell on eBay since your eBay account will have lower stock limits, and you will be able to list a lot more WooCommerce products by using a Maximum Stock value of 1, for example.

  • Import and Assign eBay categories

This setting can be used to assign the imported products, from eBay to WooCommerce, to their eBay store categories or eBay site categories in WooCommerce. If the eBay categories don’t exist, they will be created in WooCommerce in the same hierarchy as on eBay. Turn the toggle ON and from the dropdown, which appears, select whether you want to import eBay site categories or eBay store categories.

  • Skip sending SKU for simple products

 If your simple products on WooCommerce don’t have SKUs while the eBay listings have them, then turning this toggle to On will make sure that the WooCommerce to eBay inventory syncing process doesn’t error out and fails.

  • Sync price to eBay

Turning this toggle On will also sync any changes in your WooCommerce product prices to their counterpart on eBay.

Settings

↑ Back to top

The settings section is divided into 4 subsections namely-

  1. Orders Import Settings
  2. General Settings
  3. Global Options
  4. Advanced Settings

Orders Import Settings

This subsection has- 

  • Use Amazon Order Number: Enabling this option will display Amazon order numbers inside your WooCommerce orders section once you fetch all the orders generated on Amazon to WooCommerce. 
  • Create Order in Store Currency: Enable this feature if you wish to create orders on your WooCommerce dashboard in a currency based on your store’s region. Clicking on this will open up the currency conversion rate option. You need to enter a conversion value here to effectively convert order values into your regional currency. 
  • Amazon Orders Time Limit: Fetch Amazon orders to your WooCommerce dashboard of a certain time period as entered by you.

General settings

The general settings cover all the essential options you need to make your product listings shine when uploading products from WooCommerce to Amazon. 

  • Stock Levels: For sellers with a large inventory in WooCommerce, you can now choose to list only a portion of your products on Amazon. Set a cap on the quantity to ensure that you maintain control over your stock levels.

  • Markup: Price adjustments are made easily with our price markup tool. You can assign fixed values or percentage markups to increase or decrease the prices of your Amazon listings without altering the WooCommerce product prices. 

Global Options

Fields under the Global Options are not mandatory yet we encourage you to fill this voluntarily. 


There are attributes like- Seller SKU, Brand Name, Title, Description, Manufacturer, Price, Quantity, etc. These attributes function as template fields, effectively eliminating the need for repetitive input. The fields within the global options are automatically populated in all the product templates created by a seller, thereby eliminating the requirement for repetitive administration or data entry across multiple templates.

Advanced Settings

With the Advance Settings feature, you can make sure that your WooCommerce and Amazon store are perfectly in sync, without any errors getting in the way. These settings help you to-

  • Fetch Amazon Orders

To make sure your WooCommerce store and Amazon are perfectly synced, it’s super important for the products in your store and the ones ordered on Amazon to have the same SKUs. When these SKUs match up, everything will flow smoothly between both platforms.

  • Update inventory on Amazon

With matching SKUs, the stock in WooCommerce seamlessly syncs with the corresponding Amazon listing. You can easily track the status of these stock updates in the feeds section, ensuring your inventory remains up-to-date and in sync across both platforms.

  • Update Price on Amazon

It is of utmost importance to regularly update the pricing of your products on Amazon in order to maintain accuracy and ensure that they are up-to-date. By doing so, you can effectively reflect any alterations in cost, promotions, or market conditions. This practice not only helps to keep your product listings competitive but also enhances the overall shopping experience for potential customers.

  • Existing Product Sync 

The Existing Product Sync feature is designed to seamlessly sync the ASIN of your Amazon listings to the corresponding WooCommerce listings by relying on the SKUs (Stock Keeping Units). This synchronization process functions smoothly when the SKUs of your WooCommerce listings match up with those on Amazon. 

  • ASIN sync

With the ASIN sync, you can sync the ASIN of Amazon catalog products to the corresponding WooCommerce products on the basis of UPC/ EAN or other product identifiers to connect your WooCommerce items with your Amazon listings. Just enable the scheduler and choose the right identifier from the dropdown menu to start the synchronization process. 


Once done with all the subsections of the Settings tab click the Save given at the bottom right corner. This will complete and save all the changes that you have made under the Settings section.

Templates
