Sellers can upload files which add, revise, relist, and end listings. Sellers can end their Stores listings and create them in another format to move inventory out of their Stores. They can also perform some basic post-sale management tasks such as leaving feedback or identifying items for which they have received payment or shipped to the buyer.

The following eBay sites support eBay File Exchange: US, Canada, Germany, UK, France, Italy, Spain, Taiwan, and Austria. Before using eBay File Exchange on these international sites, visit the individual country or region sites to create custom eBay File Exchange templates for those sites.

Generally, any eBay File Exchange listing action that is completed before the end of a promotion will be eligible for the promotion. Sellers can use the data files to specify a time and date when the listing request should be completed or cancelled that coincides with the end of the promotion. However, you should double check the terms for each promotion to confirm that your listings are eligible.

The data file should be submitted in CSV (comma-separated values) format. This CSV format is compatible with Microsoft Excel. The file must be no larger than 15 MB and cannot exceed the maximum number of listing requests that the seller is allowed during a 24-hour period.

Sellers must specify the action requested (add, revise, relist, end), ISBN or UPC eBay category ID, and normal eBay listing-related details such as listing format (Auction-style, Fixed Price) and seller features (Bold, etc.). For specific information on the data file format, please refer to the eBay File Exchange User Guide, which is accessible to eBay File Exchange sellers.

At this time, the eBay File Exchange data file format cannot be used with the import function that is part of the other eBay seller tools.

Once you have an eBay File Exchange account, go to your account page to download and populate an eBay File Exchange template.

You can upload your data files from your account page interactively or programmatically via scripts. Please see the eBay File Exchange User Guide for more information regarding these options.
