WARNING: When importing orders, the system does not differentiate between Amazon and eBay SKUs and will match on either. It is good practice to have different codes for an item on the different channels and use the barcode button to hold the different codes.


eBay barcodes are used when importing existing eBay listings, importing sales orders and also when listing products. The following barcodes can be setup and used:

The eBay SKU can be imported into Khaos Control when importing existing listings. In the eBay Inventory missing from Channel Listings dialog the Update checkbox must not be ticked. The system will add the eBay SKU into the Barcode field and the description will be the description that matches the eBay channel description.
