First Steps - Learn How to Start Using AutoDS

How to Import your Untracked Listings to AutoDS

Learn how you can move your active listings from your previous re-pricer to AutoDS

What you need to do first is to obtain a CSV file with your active listings on eBay.

There are 2 ways to do that: 

  1. Export your listings from your previous monitor using AutoDS Helper Chrome Extension

You can use our Chrome extension, AutoDS Helper, to export your items from your previous monitor. 

After you installed the AutoDS helper extension, you can go to your active listings page on your previous monitoring system in order to export your listings. At the end, a CSV file ready to be uploaded to your Untracked Listings page on AutoDS will be downloaded to your computer.


How to export your listings with the AutoDS Helper? 

The AutoDS Helper extension will appear at the bottom right of the page displaying your active listings on your previous monitoring system. 
First click "Extract" and then "Export as CSV"


Go over each page of your active listings in your previous monitor and hit 'Extract' (it's best to show more entries on each page if possible to speed up the process).

At the end hit 'Export to CSV' and the file will be downloaded to your computer. 

Once downloaded, you can upload the file from the Untracked Listings page.

Here's a guide on how to do that: 

2. Export your CSV using eBay's File Exchange system

Another way of exporting your eBay listings is directly from eBay.
This action will only work if you had enabled the automatic SKU labelling on your previous monitoring system. Meaning, the source IDs from your suppliers appear under the 'custom label' column on your active listings on eBay. 

Please read through the following guide to understand how to export directly from eBay.

  1. The format of the exported file by AutoDS Helper Chrome extension will look like this:

<eBay ID>, <Supplier ID>, <Supplier name>, <eBay site>, <Variation>


You will need to prepare a similar file to comply with AutoDS. 

This is how you should our suppliers and eBay sites:


eBay sites:

In order to upload the listings to the untracked listings and have them synced and monitored, click 'Connected Untracked Listings with File':

A window will pop-up:

1. Click 'Choose file' and select the file to upload from your computer. 

2. There's no need to select a specific supplier as the system will be able to get this info from the CSV file if it's in the correct format (downloaded by our Helper). If not (see example in the note below), you do need to choose the supplier and eBay region. 

3. Click Update


Note: If you use the eBay File Exchang to export the file or you received a file from your previous monitoring system, the file format (CSV file UTF-8 encoding) needs to be edited to the following format and separated by suppliers:

<eBay ID>, <Supplier ID> 

See the following image as a sample example


That means you will have one file for Amazon, one file for Home Depot etc - and you will need to upload them each separately. 

When using this format, you need to select the supplier and eBay region before clicking 'Update'.
