Before connecting eBay & Brightpearl

Ready to implement eBay with Brightpearl? Here's what you need to do before implementation of eBay with Brightpearl.


SKUs must exist in Brightpearl & eBay. They must be unique to a product and match between Brightpearl and eBay. They will be used for connecting your existing eBay listings to the products in Brightpearl, allowing you to then upload prices and inventory to eBay, and allocate inventory to downloaded orders.

Price lists

A price list for each currency you actively list on eBay in is required. This is not required for passive listing, i.e. a domestic listing which offers international shipping.


If you are using Magento and M2E, M2E must be deactivated. Brightpearl will take over the functions of M2E.
