Version 24.1.8910


You can use the eBay connector from the CData Sync application to capture data from eBay and move it to any supported destination. To do so, you need to add the connector, authenticate to the connector, and complete your connection.

Establish a Connection

To allow Sync to use data from eBay, you first must establish a connection to eBay. Follow these steps to connect eBay to your Sync account:

  1. Open the Connections page of the Sync dashboard.

  2. Click Add Connection to open the Select Connectors page.

  3. Click the Sources tab and locate the eBay row.

  4. Click the Configure Connection icon at the end of that row. If you do not see the Configure Connection icon, you need to add the connector according to the instructions in Connections.

  5. Enter connection settings on the Settings tab:

    • Connection Name - Enter a connection name of your choice.

    • Ru Name - Enter the redirect URL name that is used for validation. This property is required only when you use the provider to allow other users to access their own data.

    • Auth Scheme - Select the authentication scheme that you want to use. *The default scheme is AuthNAuth. For this setting, specify the following settings:

      • Dev ID - Enter your developer Id, as registered with the eBay Developers Program.

      • OAuth Client Id - Enter the client Id that you were assigned when you registered your application with an OAuth authorization server.

      • OAuth Client Secret - Enter the client secret that you were assigned when you registered your application with an OAuth authorization server.

      • OAuth Access Token - Enter the access token that you use for connecting via OAuth.

    • Site ID - Enter the Id of the eBay site to which you want to send the request. The default Id is 0

    • Use Sandbox - Select True if you want to connect to a sandbox account. The default value is False.

  6. Click Create & Test to create the connection.

  7. Define advanced connection settings on the Advanced tab. (In most cases, though, you should not need these settings.)
