Automating Your eBay Store with BaseLinker: A Step-by-Step Guide


From listing items to handling orders and keeping stock in check, managing your eBay store can be demanding on time and resources. Fortunately, with BaseLinker’s two-way eBay integration, you can access an efficient solution to automate your tasks and boost your shop’s productivity. In this article, we’ll expand on the benefits of our eBay integration, review the challenges of handling eBay orders manually, and show you just how simple it is to carry out your integration.

The challenges of managing eBay orders manually

Without integrating your eBay store with a solution like BaseLinker, you’ll have no choice but to manage orders manually. Some of the issues that regularly complicate manual order management include: 

Labour-intensive order listing 

Handling eBay listings manually demands a lot of effort. You’ll have to create detailed descriptions and input appropriate information for each of your products, as well as upload high-quality images and videos to accompany them. This process leaves sellers with little room for error and can quickly become overwhelming as the volume of listings grows.

Time-consuming order processing

Manual order processing can be incredibly time-consuming, involving a series of repetitive tasks such as inputting customer details, generating invoices, and updating order statuses. As a result, sellers often find themselves spending hours on administrative tasks that could be better spent on strategic business activities. This inefficiency can slow down the entire order fulfilment process, leading to delays in shipping and dissatisfied customers.

Risk of errors and delays in order fulfilment

Manual processes are prone to human error, increasing the likelihood of mistakes and inaccuracies in order fulfilment. Whether it’s shipping the wrong items or missing delivery deadlines, these errors can negatively impact customer satisfaction and tarnish your brand’s reputation. Delays in order processing can also result in negative feedback and lost sales opportunities.

Difficulty synchronising stock levels across platforms

Maintaining accurate inventory levels across multiple platforms, including eBay, isn’t an easy task to manage without automation. Manual inventory management often leads to discrepancies between stock levels on different channels, increasing the risk of overselling or stockouts.
