AutoDS Non-API manual extension is a powerful tool that will save you a lot of time and make your non-API dropshipping store management much easier.


First, you need to download and configure the extension. Click here to download from the Google Extension store

Once downloaded, do the following configuration steps: 

1. Add your AutoDS token and AutoDS email

You can find the AutoDS token on your settings page. 

After you inserted your AutoDS email and token click the 'Save' button. 

 

2. Insert the eBay File Exchange token

Click on the setting icon on the extension

Next, Activate the File Exchange Integration Type

This how the window will look after you clicked it:

Click on the 'Get file exchange token' link to get your eBay file exchange token. Sign in to your eBay account, agree to grant permission: 

Now copy the long token from eBay and then place it on the extension: 

Click Update

 

Now that you are all set up, let's undertand the different functions of the extension. 

 

Explantion of the Extensions' buttons: 

 

The non-API solution will make sure to monitor your products on an hourly basis even if your computer is turned off. It will also upload your products every 10 minutes. 

Please check the featured numbers in the following image. You will find a detailed explanation of each featured number below the image.

1- Settings- Clicking on the Settings icon directs you to the fields where you need to enter the AutpDS token (the token of your account) and the File Exchange token.

2- The notifications center button (the bell)- When something is not working out, the notifications logs will let you know. 

Click on the bell icon on the right-hand of your extension, and you will see the Error Logs. 

Now click Export Logs​ - a CSV file will be downloaded to your computer. 

There will be times when the support team will ask you to export the logs and send them for review when you report an issue with uploads or monitoring of your products.

3- Untracked Monitor - The untracked monitor is the monitor that shows you if you have any products that exist on eBay but do not appear in AutoDS, thus - they are untracked by the extension.
When this field is turned off, your untracked items will not be synced automatically to AutoDS. Please note, if your computer or browser is off, the untracked listings update will only take place when you turn them back on.

4- Orders Monitor - When the "Orders Monitor" is turned off - your orders will not be synced to AutoDS. Please note, if your computer or browser is off, the untracked listings update will only take place when you turn them back on.

5- Run untracked sync now - The untracked products sync is running every 60 minutes, if you see that for some reason the untracked products didn't appear on their own within 60-90 minutes, you can click this button to speed-up the process and make the monitor run immediately. 

6- Run Orders Sync Now (Last 7 Days) - the orders monitor is running every 15 minutes. If you see that for some reason it doesn't run, or you just turned on the browser, you can click this button to speed-up the process. The monitor will always sync the orders from the past 7 days.

 

That's all you need to start using the best manual dropshipping solution out there! 💪🏻

 

IMPORTANT: The extension will fully work only if your Chrome browser is on. If you had added the token, uploads and monitoring will work also when you turn it off, however, updates of new orders and newlly untracked listinings will only occur once you turn it on.
