Fast eBay Listings provides Blocks for the WordPress Gutenberg Block Editor which make it a breeze to add eBay listings to your posts or pages.

eBay Partner Network WordPress Integration

Classic Editor

For those that prefer the WordPress Classic Editor, Fast eBay Listings provides handy visual editors to add and edit shortcodes in your posts and pages. These are accessible from the WordPress editor toolbar and will present a simple pop-up to enter your eBay search criteria.

‘eBay Search’ – Display items from a custom search

Use intuitive visual editors within the WordPress Block or Classic Editors to present eBay items meeting your search criteria in your post or page. You can filter your search by a number of criteria like keywords, categories, seller price etc.

If options are omitted, defaults from the plugin setting will be used instead. eBay provides images in the sizes 225px and 1000px. To avoid in-browser scaling choose one of these, otherwise, Fast eBay Listings will utilise the next largest to the stipulated ‘Picture Width’ argument.

Unlike other WordPress eBay plugins, Fast eBay Listings comes with a handy popup eBay category chooser so you do not need to manually hunt down the ID number for the category you want to use:

‘eBay RSS Feed’ – Display results from an RSS feed

eBay deprecated their RSS feed functionality in 2019, however, some users have migrated to services like RSS Ground and Auction Request that can generate an RSS feed of eBay results. Fast eBay Listings provides support to present such RSS feeds in a similar manner to the above ‘eBay Search’ features.

It is still recommended to use the above ‘eBay Search’ feature as it is faster, more flexible and does not require additional effort setting up an RSS Feed on a 3rd party service. Nonetheless, Fast eBay Listings offers RSS Feed support to provide a simple migration route for existing feeds you may have set up.

‘eBay Item’ – Display a single item

You can display details of a single eBay item or image. Use intuitive visual editors within the WordPress Block or Classic Editors to present a single eBay item in your post or page. Just enter the item’s ID.

Example:

Akrapovic Titanium Road Race Slip On Exhaust Triumph Tiger 800 & XC 800XC 2011

‘eBay Feedback’ – Display Seller/Store Feedback Ratings

Display feedback and ratings for your eBay seller/store account on your blog or website. A great way to show your reputation on your company website and provide a link directly to your eBay shop.

Simply enter your eBay seller account name and choose the number of feedback entries to display, or enter zero if you just want to display the rating summaries.

Widget Usage

Fast eBay Listings supplies a number of widgets to display eBay items, perfect for promoting items in your site margins and footer. These widgets can display your own search query or a dynamic search based on the current page or post.

All widgets can be customised to present items in a grid of any size, with pictures of any size and with the option of a manual or automated slideshow.

Fixed Search Widget

This widget presents an eBay search similar to the above Block and Classic Editor eBay Search shortcodes, the widget form contains fields with the same filters and presentation options to display results from fixed search criteria.

Dynamic Search Widget

This widget presents an eBay search similar to the Fixed Search widget, however, the search query is dynamically driven by the current page displayed. This is ideal for displaying items on eBay to visitors related to the content of the current page in WordPress they are viewing.

On pages and posts, the title is used as the search query. When browsing categories or tags, the category or tag is used as the eBay query. As a fallback, a default query can be specified for other pages.

    Exactly what I needed! No Nonsense!

    I tried several “popular” plugins only to find the usual bloatware, signups, premium restrictions, and complicated RSS nonsense. Then I tried Fast EBay Listings. AND IT WORKS! Like… instantly! It took like 10 seconds, and I had exactly what I needed! Arthur – thank you for your great work, and keep it up!!

    Wonderful way of adding your own and relevant ebay listings

    I spent a long time and a bit of money on various eBay WordPress plugins. But none do the job as well as this. The author is incredibly supportive and made some changes on request so a 50/50 split for this functionality is fine with me. This is genuine 5 stars all day long!
