File Exchange

eBay File Exchange is an advanced selling tool designed for high-volume sellers who want to upload their inventory directly to eBay using a Microsoft Excel-compatible .csv or tab-delimited file. You can use eBay File Exchange to add, revise, relist, and end items in bulk, as well as perform post-sale management tasks such as leaving feedback and identifying items as “paid” or “shipped”.
