In order to make it harder for different market research software to scan your store and copy all your products, it is highly recommended not to have your source ID inserted in the 'Custom Label' field (SKU) on eBay.

When you first register to AutoDS, the automatic SKU filling will be turned off. 

If you wish to change it you should go to the General tab settings for each supplier you add and turn the feature off: 

Settings →Store Settings→ General 


To remove existing product identifiers from your listings on eBay follow the following steps : 

Go to Seller Hub -> Listings -> Active

It might take a while for eBay to process the changes applied to your listings:  

Select all listings and then click Edit Fields and choose Custom Label :

Change Custom Label to Remove from all - notice  NOT to change any other field: 

Then click save and close and the changes will take into effect in few seconds.
You will be asked to confirm the changes:
