Who is this article for?
This article is meant for new users who are migrating from Turbo Lister to Wonder Lister.
As a Turbo Lister user, you have your eBay data stored at two places:
When you install and run Wonder Lister for the very first time, Wonder Lister will automatically import all your listings data residing on eBay. So, nothing more needs to be done as far as listings data that is stored on eBay is concerned.
The inventory data that you have on your local computer must be somehow transferred to Wonder Lister. This guide is meant to make this process as easy as possible.
Before you start Importing Turbo Lister Inventory Items:
Wonder Lister exclusively uses Profiles for managing your Payment, shipping and return policy details. Business Profiles is an eBay feature which eBay introduced several years back. It is highly recommended that you opt-in (basically sign up) to use eBay Business policies/profiles. Once you opt-in, eBay will automatically generate your profiles based on your existing listings. You should edit your listings within Turbo Lister (you can do that in Wonder Lister also) before exporting them. To OPT-IN to use business policies, please see /blogs/desktop/uncategorized-desktop/how-to-opt-in-to-ebay-business-policies/
Importing Turbo Lister Inventory Items:
First, from within your Turbo Lister, export as CSV file all your Inventory Items. You MUST export them in TL format (which is NOT the default option in Turbo Lister, so, please be careful)
Now, run Wonder Lister and follow these steps to Import that CSV file:
The import process will start. When completed, if there are any errors, they will be reported in the Grid. For those without any errors, a new listing template will be created per CSV row.
Now that your Inventory items are in Wonder Lister, the next step is to make some minor edits to the listing templates just imported. The reason for this is that Wonder Lister uses eBay Business Profiles where as many Turbo Lister users still do not use eBay Business Profiles even though eBay launched this feature many years ago. Thus, the next step is to attach Payment, Shipping and Return Policy profiles to the listing templates just imported. But before we can do that, these profiles must be there in Wonder Lister itself. Now, when you ran Wonder Lister for the very first time, Wonder Lister imported all your eBay business profiles (payment, shipping and return policy profiles) directly from eBay. This is true even if you have not switched over to using eBay Business Profiles. So, it is quite likely that the profiles you wish to attach to items just imported may already be existing in Wonder Lister. If not, Wonder Lister allows you to create them as well.
So, essentially, in summary, you may need to create your business profiles (Payment, shipping and return policies). To do that,
Ok, now, at this point, you have all your profiles in place. The next step is to assign a profile of each type to the listing templates we just imported. In Wonder Lister, you can do that in Bulk.
Bulk assign Profiles to Listing Templates:
and that’s it as far as migrating your Inventory data from Turbo Lister to Wonder Lister is concerned!
