How To: Create eBay Templates


Tutorial Difficulty: 1 / 3

To export your products to eBay, you’ll need an eBay template. These templates serve to group your products by specific parameters such as shipping and payment methods, categories, etc.

To create and configure a template, complete the following steps:

  1. Open your store’s Administration panel and go to Marketing → eBay → eBay templates (or Marketing → eBay templates for the versions older than CS-Cart 4.3.5)
  2. Click the + button


When you create a template, make sure to fill in the mandatory fields marked with *.

  1. Fill in the fields in the General tab:
Configure the general settings of your eBay template on the General tab.
  • Name your template
  • Use the Add Products button and select the products from your store that you want to apply this template to


The Add Products button is available since CS-Cart 4.3.5 or in the eBay Synchronization add-on upgrade package for CS-Cart 4.3.4. If you use an older version, apply your eBay templates under Products → Products.

  • Choose your region


Before CS-Cart 4.3.5 the region of the eBay template had to match the Default site setting of the eBay synchronization add-on. The Default site setting was removed in the new version of the add-on.

If you change the eBay region in the template’s setting, make sure to change the company address, primary currency, and weight unit in your store to meet the requirements of the selected eBay region.

  • Tick the Use as default checkbox if you want your to assign this eBay template to products with no other template selected


If you set several templates as default, the latest template you set as default will be applied to products.
