How to Upload Products Using AutoDS' Non-API Solution?
This article explains AutoDS V1, our current version supporting dropshipping to eBay only. If the images you see do not match the ones on your account, it means you are using the newer version (V2) which will soon be offered to all our users. Check out this link for the article relevant to you.
The Non-API solution supports both types of uploads to eBay, the regular uploads, and the bulk uploads.
The process is similar to the uploads with API, but there are very few differences.
In this article, we will describe the full process of listing products using the Non-API solution.
- First, please download and configure the Non-API Chrome extension, you can learn here about the different functionalities of the extension.
- After the extension is configured, create the upload - same as you do with the API version, except the last step, where instead of clicking the "Upload Now" or "Schedule Now" buttons - you will click on the "Save Product/s" button.

- After you clicked the "Save Product" button at the bottom of one of the uploaders, go to the "Schedule Uploads Calendar" and check if your products appear there with a "Pending" status.
That's it! As long as your extension is on - our system will check for pending uploads every 10 minutes and your uploads will be uploaded to eBay. If they fail, you will be able to check the reason for the failure on the schedule calendar under 'Failed'.
If you did not add the File Exchange token upon adding your store and installing the extension, you will need to keep your browser open for your products to be successfully monitored and connected to AutoDS.
If you do not keep your browser open, monitoring will start again only the next time that you open it, and the extension runs again. The extension will attempt to sync all changes that occurred to your products during the last 24 hours. If your computer/ internet connection was closed for more than 24 hours, previous changes will not be applied to your connected products.
