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. Find eBay’s guide on how to do this 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 need to 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 usage because Cyclr doesn’t 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: You can find your Cyclr account redirect URL 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.

Cyclr setup

Sandbox or Production

If you want to use the eBay developer sandbox for testing, set the Is Sandbox? field to true during setup, and use the sandbox application keys you generated in the previous steps. For production keys, set Is Sandbox? to false.

Console setup

To setup your eBay connector within your Cyclr console:

  1. Go to your Cyclr Console.
  2. Select Connectors > Application Connector Library at the top of the page.
  3. Use the search box to find the eBay connector.
  4. Select the Setup Required icon.
  5. Enter the below valuess:

    Value Description
    Client ID Your eBay application App ID (Client ID).
    Client Secret Your eBay application Cert ID (Client Secret).
  6. Set Is Sandbox? to true or false depending on which type of authentication keys you are using.
  7. Select Save Changes.

Note: To use different settings for different accounts, leave the value blank. This means Cyclr asks you to enter the value when you install the connector into an account.

Account setup

Cyclr asks for the following values when you install the eBay connector into an account:

Value Description
Client ID Your eBay application App ID (Client ID) if you left the field blank in the console setup.
Client Secret Your eBay application Cert ID (Client Secret)if you left the field blank in the console setup.
Account Identifier Your eBay application environment.

To test your eBay connector, you can execute one of the methods to confirm it can return data.
