This post includes all information about the chrome extension for eBay. It will help you to better automate your dropshipping business daily routine tasks when you work with ebay.com

Note: in 2020 and 2021 google chrome extension team increased the time for reviewing of the chrome extensions, that’s why we provided a new (manual) way to deliver the updates for the ebay2woo chrome extension. Update your chrome extension regularly to ensure all functions work stable.

1. How to install the chrome extension for eBay?

The extension works only on the Google Chrome browser and only on the computer. It will not work on a tablet or mobile phone.

  2. Click Add to Chrome.

4. How to place order automatically on eBay?

The eBay2Woo Chrome extension can place your orders on eBay automatically.

5. How to properly update the chrome extension?

Remember: you have to update the extension to keep its working stable and do that in time. Periodically, the eBay team makes some changes on their portal and some extension`s function requires refining to continue working properly.

You have two ways to get the updated version:

  • Automatic approach. Just visit the Ebay2Woo chrome extension page, download and then install the latest version.
  • Manual method. In 2020 the chrome extensions team increased the time of reviewing process for the extensions updates. They announced that the reviewing process can take up to 3 weeks. It’s really slow especially if the eBay developers make any changes on their side spontaneously. So, to deliver the new versions faster, we would recommend you to install the update manually.

Follow these steps to update the eBay2Woo extension manually:

1. Download the chrome extension archive: eBay2Woo chrome extension

ebay2woo-extension-zip

and unzip it.

2. Once you have your folder, go to chrome://extensions (or find it in your menu in more tools > extensions), then activate the developer mode on the top right of the page:

activate chrome developer mode

Then to install the extension, you just have to indicate where is this folder on your computer:

load chrome extension unpacked

Note: if you installed the eBay2Woo chrome extension before, then first deactivate the old version and delete it. It will ensure that you don’t have two extensions installed and prevent it from unexpected behavior and errors.
