Exporting your listings to search engines
eBay sellers can establish partnerships with other companies, such as product search engines, to help drive traffic to their listings. If you're a seller and you need a way to provide your partners with current information on your listings and web addresses, you can create a file with information about your listings for your partners to download.
What's in the file
The file contains the following information about each listing in this order:
The web address of the listing
Whether the item can be ordered
Shipping cost (if you specified it in the Shipping & Handling field)
Gallery picture (if included)
This is an XML file in the ebay Store listing export XML format.
Creating the file
To create a file of your listings:
Go to My eBay. You may be asked to sign in.
Place your cursor over the Account tab, and then select Marketing Tools from the drop-down menu.
In the Store Marketing section on the left side of the page, click the RSS Feeds link.
In the Search engines and comparison sites section, select the Activate your Fixed Price listings via RSS option.
Click the Apply button.
Within 12 hours, eBay creates the file and posts it to a web address (URL) based on your Store's URL. For example, if your Store's name is "Fine Jewelry," the file is posted to: http://esssl.ebay.com/GetListings/finejewelry
Once your file is posted, let your partners know they can download the file. (Anyone can download your file from the URL a maximum of 50 times per day.)
eBay keeps the file up-to-date. However, eBay isn't responsible for coordinating how the file will be used by a third party.
When you first have eBay create the file, it may take up to 12 hours for the new file to become available for download.
Repeated attempts to download the file beyond the 50-download per day maximum may disqualify the user from using this feature.
Listings in the Adult Only category won't be in the file.
Use of information that you allow eBay to make available to a third party will be in accordance with the third party's terms and conditions. eBay isn't responsible for how the information in your file is used by the third party. Some partners may charge fees to promote your listings.
If your listings are unavailable on eBay or on a third-party website through the use of this feature, eBay will only credit eBay fees as outlined in the eBay Outage Policy. eBay can't reimburse any fees that you may owe to third parties.
