Click > Oberlo
Adding Products From Oberlo That Comply With eBay Standards
A new window will open up your Oberlo App, where you can either enter a keyword of specific products you are searching for select a category.
Next, you will need to add a filter, so that products coming from Oberlo will be based out of US Warehouses, which will ensure shorter shipping times. (See below)
Once you change the filter to US Warehouse, you will see a huge drop in available products. However, the products that are left, are sure to have faster shipping times, which have been proven to potentially increase buyers.
Next, with the remaining products, you will Click > Add to Import List
( Note: Oberlo allows you to import up to 500 products without having to upgrade your account)
It is recommended to choose products from all sorts of different categories when choosing what products to list on eBay.
Also, you will want to change the Shipping Method to USPS ( see below)
Sorting Products By Popularity and Price Point
When sorting through thousands, or even hundreds of products, you also have the option to choose in which way you sort through products. Click > Orders Count to view popular and trending products OR Click > Highest price to increase profit value. ( see below)
OR Adjust based on Highest Price

Importing Products to eBay Collection

Click > Import List
Next, Choose your collection by clicking in the box and Click > eBay
How To Price Your Products To Sell
One of the benefits of using Oberlo, is that they offer a price comparison of other businesses selling this product, and the average they are selling it for. Which you can use their recommendation and Click to set the price at that value.
However, we do recommend doing a quick search on eBay for this product, to find a more accurate price point state wide. In which case you will set a new value manually ( see blue highlighted price ) erase the compared at price to be closer to the price you are finding elsewhere.
Next, manually change the price you will be selling the product for ( see below )
Secondary Pricing Option
Choosing to set a fixed amount to choose to increase your product by. For example, choosing to increase your product price by 140%, to ensure you always make a at least 30% (after eBay takes out their 10% fee) In this case adding the cost amount + shipping amount = ______ x .4 = your price to sell the product for.
USE SUGGESTED PRICE FROM OBERLO
Lastly, Click > Import to Store
