Migrating to AutoDS is super simple!
To migrate, all you need is to obtain a CSV file of your store's products.
Once you have it you can upload it to your store on your AutoDS account.
How to obtain the CSV file?
There are 3 ways to do that:
- Export your listings from your previous platform using AutoDS Helper Chrome Extension
- Ask for a file from your previous monitoring software/ lister
- eBay only →Use eBay's File Exchange to download it
Here's an explanation of each of the possibilities:
Export your listings from your previous platform using AutoDS Helper Chrome Extension
You can use our Chrome extension, the AutoDS Helper, to export your items from your previous system.
After you've installed the AutoDS helper extension, you can go to your active listings/ products page on your previous monitoring system in order to export your products.
You will then need to extract the listings from all pages and when you're done, you will export the results to a CSV file.
How to export your listings with the AutoDS Helper?
The AutoDS Helper extension will usually appear at the bottom right of the page displaying your active listings on your previous monitoring system.
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, go to your untracked listing from the Products page:
Go to the second tab called 'Add from CSV' and then drop or select the CSV file:
All the listings appearing in this file will be imported and added to the list of your monitored listings.
You can find a more detailed explanation in this article.
Ask for a file from your previous monitoring software/ lister
If our Helper does not appear on your current monitoring software, it means we do not support it. In this case, you need to ask for the file from your system's customer service team. Once you get the file from them, you need to make sure to edit it to fit AutoDS format. You can learn more about it here.
Applies to eBay →Use eBay's File Exchange
It is possible that the required information of our source site IDs already exists on your listings. In this case, downloading eBay's file exchange report for all your active listings. Read this guide to learn how you can do it.
