eBay setup

You need the following to setup the eBay connector in Cyclr:

Register a developer account

Register an account with the eBay developer program here. eBay’s guide on how to do this can be found here.

Create application keys

Create a set of application keys here. You need a production set of keys to use the connector with a live eBay account. Sandbox keys can only be used with sandbox accounts. eBay’s guide on how to do this can be found here.

Note: To use production application keys, you must subscribe to or opt-out of eBay’s marketplace account deletion/closure notifications. Opting in requires a setup outside of Cyclr to respond to eBay’s GET requests. Opting out may be possible depending on your use case as Cyclr does not persist data. You can find more information here.

Obtain client ID and client secret

Once you have created a set of application keys you can obtain your client ID and client secret associated with your application keys here . Your client ID is listed as App ID (Client ID) and your client secret is listed as Cert ID (Client Secret).

Create an application

Once you have obtained your client ID and client secret you need to create an application from the User Tokens (eBay Sign-In) page of your application. Under the Find the Get a Token from eBay via Your Application heading, do the following:

  1. Select Add eBay Redirect URL.
  2. Enter an application name for the Display Title.
  3. Enter your Cyclr account redirect URL for the Your auth accepted URL.
  4. Select OAuth.
  5. Select Save.

Note: Your Cyclr account redirect URL can be found in your Cyclr console under Settings > General Settings > Service Domain. It has the format: https://{Your Cyclr service domain e.g. app-h.cyclr.com}/connector/callback.

Sandbox or Production

If you wish to use the eBay developer sandbox for testing, please choose the eBay Sandbox connector, and use the sandbox application keys you have generated in the previous steps. For production keys, the standard eBay connector should be used.
