The job of extracting eBay products to Shopify could be split in a couple of steps. The initial one is scraping eBay products having all the required details in one file. The second one to import the extracted eBay products into Shopify using a default importer or similar plugins.

In this blog, we’ll discuss all these steps as well as show how to streamline the procedure as well as make that scalable.

With the given screenshot, you can observe a product given on eBay. For example, we’d need to scrape the following data:

  • Title
  • Description
  • Images
  • Pricing
  • SKU
  • Vendors
data-description

There are many methods of scraping this data. Utilizing a data extraction software or script will help you download product information from eBay into an Excel file. However, the scraped data would be recorded as-it-is. Before doing imports, it needs to get formatted as per a Shopify template.

Now, the problem is, it takes some time and you might discover that eBay products don’t have all the necessary data.

Here the Retailgators data scraping service helps you out. Retailgators merges the characteristics of Shopify import addon and eBay data extractor. It scrapes products from eBay to the file structured needed by Shopify.
