    eBay product details to scrape for Shopify

    There are several methods to extract this data. Using a script or data extraction software will let you download product details from eBay to an Excel file. But the extracted data will be listed as-is. Before import, it has to be formatted according to the Shopify template.

    A problem is that, firstly, it takes time, and secondly, you may find out that eBay product doesn’t have all the required data.

    Here the eScraper service comes to help. eScraper combines the features of eBay data extractor and Shopify import addon. It extracts products from eBay to a file structured as required by Shopify.
