About eBay Feeds


eBay Feeds

eBay Feeds allows you to generate self-updating content feeds with targeted eBay listings relevant to specific keywords or to a specific eBay seller.

Your eBay campaign ID can be automatically embedded into product links and images. You can right away start promoting eBay products and earn your fair commissions.

Note: eBay has officially deprecated its Dynamic Feeds Generator. All conversions from the original eBay RSS feeds will be globally decommissioned starting from August 2020. 

RSS Ground is using the official eBay API to generate its eBay feeds which guarantees conversion tracking.



Example of an eBay affiliate product in the feed:



To use the eBay Feeds generator you need to sign up for any of the RSS Ground membership plans.

eBay feeds are private content feeds. The number of active private feeds is limited by your RSS Ground membership plan.

Before you start using the eBay Feeds generator you need to sign up for eBay Partner Network - the official eBay affiliate program. See a quick guide.



If you already have an RSS Ground account, you need to go to FEEDS - Generate private feeds, and click on eBay Feeds icon:
