Using eBay Business Policies (Shipping, Payment, and Return Profiles)
By default, Shopping Feed relies on the values specified on the Settings tab of your eBay channel to set the shipping cost and payment method in your eBay listings.
NOTE: The return policy is set to 14-days in all eBay listings, by default.
Shopping Feed also allows you to use eBay business policies to specify the payment, shipping, and return details for buyers in your listings.
NOTE: eBay only makes business policies available to some sellers. Not everyone has access. If business policies are available to you, you will see an opt-in in the Sell section of My eBay.
You can get more details on how to create and manage eBay business policies here.
Can't Access the Business Policies Page?
1) Follow eBay's Opt-in instructions.
2) If that doesn't work, call eBay. They can enable access over the phone.
Once your eBay business policies are created, you simply need to map policy IDs with the corresponding fields under Field Mapping tab of your eBay channel.
IMPORTANT: It is obligatory to use all three policies (payment, shipping, and return) all together. If one of them is missing the other two will not work.
How to Find Your eBay Business Policy ID Numbers in Your eBay Account?
eBay automatically assigns an ID number (profile ID) to each policy.
To find it, follow the steps:
1. Click on the title of one of your eBay business policies;
2. On the page that will open - look at the URL in your web browser window.
The numbers following the profileid= at the end of the URL address are the business policy ID number.
