I was looking at Marketplaces, but when I tried to create a datafile using a link provided a message pops-up 'The eBay Commerce Network functionality is not enabled in your store settings'.

I looked everywhere, but couldn't find where to turn it on.
Anyone had the same issue?

Thanks!

Hello Gleb,

Which way are you wanting to go?

Ecwid/yola to ebay
or
ebay to Ecwid/Yola?

Thanks Gleb,

A way to do this is to download (export) your store inventory to a CSV file which is available within the Store facilities. Then convert it to a Turbo-lister file with some data manipulation required for your ebay store and finally upload it to your ebay store.

The Turbolister is freely available for use and discovered by search. The link here is a page where you can download and learn about TurboLister

TurboLister is also a text delimited file which can be used with Excel or similar. The parsing between the Ecwid/Yola CSV file and TurboLister is a straight forward process. You really only need to map the fields and add a few extras suitable for ebay's configuration. Similarly the other direction only requires mapping the TurboLister fields to the Ecwid CSV file structure. Redundant ebay fields when parsing from TurboLister to the Ecwid/Yola CSV file are not a problem as they are filtered out. The actual import/export to either Ecwid/Yola or to ebay is fast and depends on the number of records being uploaded or downloaded.
