What is eBay Commerce Network?

eBay Commerce Network is a professional online sales website. It is a place to gather and sell a lot of items from all over the world. The most extraordinary thing of eBay to distinguish from other sale engines is that it is similar to an auction. Accordingly, customers who pay higher could buy the items.

Since the product data parameters in eBay Commerce Network and Magento 2 are fully compatible, store’ s admin can apply these parameters to their product data, which generates Product Feed. For the reason that Magento 2 now does not support feed generating, we need to use an added product feed module. This module helps webmasters to export and upload their product data to ebay Commerce Network with ease.
