Before connecting eBay and Brightpearl

Here's what you need to do before connecting eBay and Brightpearl.


Every product that will be connected to an eBay listing must have a SKU, and that SKU must match between Brightpearl and eBay. The SKUs should be unique to each product. They will be used for connecting your existing eBay listings to the products in Brightpearl, allowing you to then sync prices and inventory to eBay and allocate inventory to downloaded orders.

Price lists

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