1. First step - Categories.
Choose categories you are interested in. You may check-mark several categories. The program will generate RSS feed for each category.
We offer a list of major eBay categories, however you may want to use any specific subcategory. To do so you need to use Category ID option and enter a digital code of a specific eBay category. To see all available eBay categories and subcategories follow "lookup" link.
Now you enter a list of your keywords, one per line, maximum 10. RSS Ground will generate a separate RSS feed to each keyword and to each category. If you choose 2 categories and specify 2 keywords you will get 4 RSS feeds:
Keywords and eBay affiliate ID
Note: I case you generate RSS feed of a specific seller you don't have to specify your keywords. However you may use them to filter products of a specific seller.
If you are registered with eBay you can embed your Campaign and Custom ID into the generated feeds. So if someone makes a purchase through your feed you will get a commission.
Each campaign has a unique Campaign ID, which is assigned by eBay. Campaign ID is a 10-digit number included in your generated links and code to help you track the traffic you generate for eBay. A default campaign was created as soon as you registered at eBay Partner Network. You may create your own campaign under your account.
Before specifying your Campaign and Custom ID, please choose eBay program. Each eBay program depends on a localization.
Note: you can pre-set all your affiliate IDs in every Feeds Generator so they would be automatically filled in while generating new feeds. To make default settings you need to go to "Account" tab, fill out all needed fields and press "Update settings".
To move back to the first stem use "Previous" button. If are ready to go on press "Next".
3. Final step - Settings
Here you can filters your search results.
You can filter products within eBay feeds:
- by a specific seller ("From sellers");
- by type of listings: Buy it now or auctions ("Listings");
Finally, you may sort items by "Best match" or by lowest / highest price.
Number of items to show – set how many items you wish to display in your RSS feed
Generate and send to – choose a tool from drop-down menu you wish to transfer your RSS feeds to. It can be RSS feeds to Code Converter or to any RSS Poster. Also you may simply choose to send RSS feeds to "My saves" section to work with them later.
Check-mark "Send rss feed(s) to my email" option if you wish to get a copy of your RSS feeds list to your email.
As soon as all settings are done press "Generate" button.
