12. Export Configurable Items with Simple Ones on eBay
From the latest update of Store Manager, the configurable items with simple ones can be exported on eBay with eBay Integration Addon.
Select configurable products you want to transfer and launch the eBay wizard tool with the right-click.
Note: if you choose the category with configurable and simple products, which are not assigned to the selected configurable product(s), the addon will export these products as separate positions, without committing to any configurable item.
In case you select simple items without configurable product, these products will be displayed as simple ones on eBay. They will not be visible as associated products of configurable ones.
Choose an action on the "Welcome" page and login to your eBay account to be able to proceed.
Select the necessary eBay category with the browse [↓] button that matches products that are exporting. Pay attention to colored category. Root categories of eBay are grayed out. To be able to select necessary positions, you should expand them first.
The following step allows to specify condition of exporting item from the options in the drop-down list.

When you reach the step "eBay Listing Options", pay attention to the price type. By default, there are the following types of price:
- The "Online Auction" price is established for separate products without variations and couldn’t be applied to the complex type of items.
- "Fixed Price" covers the base price of a main product and has an impact on price values of associated elements.
You should choose the "Fixed Price" type to export configurable product with associated ones properly.
To proceed with an export process, fill in fields on each tab. Then press the [Export] button to start transferring.
The last window displays the summary of the process with the direct link to the product on eBay. Configurable products will look like this:
