Hi mark,

You can do this but not directly.

  1. The first thing to do is to export your ebay listings as a TSV file (using ebays Turbo lister)

  2. You should be able to use this as a TSV file but if not then simply convert your TSV file to a CSV file and you may have to make some amendments to this.

  3. Once your file is OK then you import this to your Online Store.


  4. If you need specific help with this please let me know and you're welcome to send the files to me for inspection if you feel this would help? gop@designscent.com

Mark,

i was a little coy in answering above but see that you have some experience so I'll explain my reticence:

The TSV file may be delimited with both a TAB and quotation marks like so
"field a"{TAB}"field b"{TAB}"field c" etc.

The quotation marks need to be removed from a text file if they occur as these are reserved to protect things like apostophes etc for the Ecwid store to use. If " are part of the delimeter it will cause some issues either overt errors and won't load or rubbish content in the displayed store fields.
