List and Sync features available with eBay

Import products from eBay

Nembol is cloud-based software, useful to bulk-import listings from eBay and to publish them on multiple channels, such as Etsy, Amazon, Shopify, WooCommerce, PrestaShop, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Pinterest, Google Merchant Center, and Instagram. See our integrations.

How to import specific items

In the “Import from eBay” settings, you can select filters to sort products according to:

  • The Listing Status;
  • The Listing Type;
  • The Listing Site.

Moreover, with Nembol, you can choose to import the product description with the attached pre-formatted HTML template.

Bulk-list products to eBay

Nembol helps you to easily bulk-list products on up to 2 eBay shops from a broad set of integrated channels, such as Amazon, Etsy, Shopify, WooCommerce, PrestaShop, and many more.

Save your time, and use a CVS file to list your products on eBay (and on more available channels).

Sync inventory across channels

Nembol is designed to help sellers with their multichannel business. For example, Nembol provides its users with a smart function that automatically syncs the available quantities across multiple channels.

To activate it, switch “ON” the sync button, and every time you sell an order, Nembol will automatically align the inventory across all connected channels.

Export products to eBay with reduced inventory-count

eBay has selling limits that restrict the number of listings you can publish on your account. Nembol can’t overcome those limitations imposed by eBay, but it can help you publish your whole inventory.

With Nembol, you can use the Limit Inventory Quantity function to set an inventory-maximum to each of your SKUs. This way, you will be able to export a fraction of your inventory, and automatically restock as you sell (so that you never sell out early!).

Centrally bulk-edit products

With Nembol, you can centrally bulk-edit your products’ content in just a few clicks: prices, inventory, SKUs, pictures, titles, and descriptions!

Thanks to this helpful automation, you will be able to edit product information and have it synced across multiple channels, automatically. Discover our CSV bulk editor.

On the other hand, you will also be able to differentiate product content and prices to suit your needs, if you want to.

Link listings on different channels

Before subscribing to Nembol, you may have already spent time listing your products across different channels. In this case, Nembol allows you to link your existing listings, associating products with the same SKUs.

That function turns out very useful, especially when you want to keep all the contents and product information and sync inventory across multiple channels without any additional effort due to the relisting process.

To link your listings, you need to:

  • Import in Nembol listings from one of your channels;
  • Import items also from your additional channels;
  • And that’s all! From now on, your products are linked and synced across multiple channels.

Transfer orders into Shopify

Nembol integrates with Shopify and allows you to centrally manage all your listings in your Shopify backend, pushing all your product edits across multiple channels, such as Amazon, Etsy, Shopify, WooCommerce, PrestaShop, and many more.

Moreover, to ease your multichannel business management, Nembol provides its users with the chance to transfer orders received on the connected channels into Shopify’s dashboard.
