Ebay Marketplace MIP: Overview

About Ebay Marketplace MIP

The Ebay Merchant Integration Platform (MIP) is a feed-based solution that lets merchants upload products to Ebay in bulk.

MIP is for small business and enterprise sellers who want to sell on Ebay. If you are familiar with feed files used with other marketplaces, such as Amazon or Google Shopping, you can start selling on Ebay right away with MIP's standard feed formats. Even if you are new to feeds, the standard feeds provide a fast and simple solution for integrating with eBay.

How does it work?

Ebay Marketplace MIP accepts files via FTP (file transfer protocol). First, you must provide DataFeedWatch with your Ebay username and FTP token. Then you can use DataFeedWatch to generate and upload one of Ebay's standard feed formats. Ebay will process that feed and create or update your listings.
