Setting up eBay with DataConnect
To get started with your eBay integration you first need some minimal knowledge about the platform and what requirements are needed.
eBay is a cloud platform and in order for merchants to start selling on it, an account is needed. Access to the eBay merchant data is provided via API. To get credentials to the API you need to have an eBay app which also represents your service on the eBay app store or marketplace.
To create an eBay App you need to create an eBay developer account first. See details below.
Create eBay account
As a first step of actual technical integration with eBay you need to create an account by registering at eBay as a developer. Fill out the form and follow the guide from eBay during account creation.
Create eBay App
As soon as you have a developer account you need to create a
Keyset is a set of credentials to eBay API and
it’s basically your eBay App. You can find more information on how to create an eBay keyset
You can have 2 keysets on eBay: sandbox and production. By default, the first keyset is generated for the sandbox environment. You can create the production keyset as well.
Once the sandbox keyset is created, we can proceed to DataConnect eBay configuration.
Setup eBay App credentials

We can already do a quick test to check if the integration works. Just prepare the link like:
https://api.dataconnect.io/v2/platforms/ebay/apps/<your project ID>/install
and you will be redirected to the eBay authorization page which means that the integration is working.
For the next step we need to configure where DataConnect will send data for you.
