Online marketplace eBay teams up with Shopify

Monday 6 April 2020 13:51 CET | News

eBay Germany has announced a partnership with the multichannel commerce platform Shopify, enabling Shopify retailers to list and sell their products directly from their eBay account.

In this way, dealers who have lost sales due to measures to combat the coronavirus crisis can reach a new, larger sales market. In Germany alone, eBay has more than 18 million active buyers. These in turn benefit from a greater variety of offers, which can be accessed via the central eBay platform. 

The integration also enables Shopify retailers to view their products, including inventory information such as product titles and descriptions, item specifications, price and availability, synchronise with their eBay shop, and update automatically. 

On 22 March 2020, eBay launched an emergency aid programme to support German retailers in the coronavirus crisis. The programme consists of four different measures: protection of service status for eBay traders; deferred payment for sales fees; additional support for eBay retailers with stationary business; programme for a quick start in trading on eBay. 

Shopify is also concerned about the well-being of its retailers. That is why the company has developed the following catalogue of measures to provide them with support: gift vouchers for all plans and customers; optional local collection and delivery; USD 200 million small business funding; extended 90-day free trial; live webinars.
