File Exchange

High-volume sellers can upload and manage their inventory in bulk using eBay File Exchange or our Merchant Integration Platform.

File Exchange is for you if you're a high-volume seller and need to upload and manage listings in bulk. Using templates, you can create inventory CSV files and upload them to add, revise, relist, and end listings. You can also perform post-sales tasks such as leaving Feedback or identifying items that have been paid for or posted.

You can upload the files to eBay in two ways:

  • Interactively from your account page
  • Automatically using scripts

File Exchange processes your data files, runs the actions you requested, and creates a downloadable report of all the actions taken. It usually takes a few hours, though very large files can take longer.

The service makes it easy to turn your inventory into eBay listings. Just upload a CSV or XML file to list your products, manage your eBay inventory, and fulfil orders.
