Connecta is a plugin which allows you to use the Connecta webhook with your WordPress site. The Connecta webhook allows you to integrate your website store with your ebay store, allowing you to easily manage your stock and orders from one place. Link listings and automatically receive ebay orders in your WordPress store, automatically manage inventory levels so you never sell an item you don’t have in stock and process ebay orders directly on your WordPress site.
Connecta allows you to:
– Link existing ebay listings with your WooCommerce product listings, simply by using the same SKU on both sites;
– Automatically manage stock levels across linked listings, when inventory quantity changes on your own site, this will be reflected on ebay, and vice-versa;
– View ebay order details directly in WooCommerce;
– Mark ebay orders as dispatched in WooCommerce;
– Automatically create WordPress users for new Ebay customers;
– Automatically link new orders to the WordPress user, based on ebay username.

How are ebay orders shown in my site?
Orders pulled from ebay by Connecta are shown in your WooCommerce orders page, alongside your website orders. All the order details for ebay orders are automatically populated in your site. Ebay orders have a badge in the WooCommerce order list, and on the order page, so they can be differentiated from orders received directly on your site.
How do I link an ebay listing with a WooCommerce product?
Just set the SKU in ebay the same as in WooCommerce, and Connecta will automatically link the listings. This will mean orders on ebay are linked with the correct product in WooCommerce, and stock deducted accordingly.
Does Connecta work with variable listings?
Yes. Connecta works with variations in ebay, and variable listings in WooCommerce, in any combination. Just ensure the SKU of your listing on ebay matches the same product in WooCommerce. For example, if your ebay listing uses variations, but each item is a separate product in your WooCommerce store, set the SKU for the ebay variation the same as the WooCommerce product. For full instructions for setting SKUs in both ebay and WooCommerce take a look at mipromotionalsourcing.com/connecta/skus
How do I mark an ebay order as despatched in WooCommerce?
Just set the WooCommerce order status to completed, and it will be automatically marked as despatched in ebay.
