Been kind of hooked on the ebay store sellers board lately, BOY can you learn alot there.

anyway, Ebay added a couple options to the left side custom search bar,
All items including store inventory items
store inventory items only.

Of course I don't think they are there by default, you have to click that little link on bottom that says customize. I didn't even know you could customize that box until yesterday, lol.
i spoke my mind (dont even remember about what) and some of the over-eager troublemakers decided to wreak some havoc and screw with my listings.

it wasnt on stores forum, was on another one. i dont even remember which one (but it was one of the ebay forums)

it wasnt a major deal, but made me think twice about using seller account to post. Many do and dont have any probs. *shrug* I just attract the whack-jobs I guess Big Grin

I've got 5 or 6 ebay id's, though. so can easily swap around if i need to Wink course, i dont remember the login details for 1/2 of them - laf!

Thanks for the link. I signed up and I went to eBay to make my file. Now how do I get it submitted to GoogleBase? I couldn't find anything on Google as to how to get my file from eBay.

TIA for any help. Smile

go to ebay and save the file to your computer (can click the link and then save, or right click and save target)

once you have that saved, you will have to convert it into a file that googlebase can read.

there's a couple of converters out there. the one i used is

that page will walk you through converting the file.

once you have the converted file saved to your computer you go back to googlebase and select item type as "Product" from the dropdown list and upload your file

You will also want to set your profile info at use keywords in description and put your ebay store url in the website url box.

NOTE: you can add more keywords and other info to your file before uploading it. simply edit it in excel and add them in, then save as a tab deliminated file. IMPORTANT: There are some columns you will want to leave blank in the file (such as the id column. you can put that in there, but you have to be very careful! see alphabetical list of attributes and their meanings for specifics for each column)

instructions on the file is here and an alphabetical list of attributes and their meanings is at

Dont have Excel? then download openoffice Smile link in siggy Smile
