Free eBay Store

Display an eBay store on your website, and sell products with your own campaign ID. Display them within posts, or as a widget.

Installation of the Plugin

  1. Upload free-ebay-store.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress

Displaying a Store in Pages or Posts

If you want to display the store on a page or post, use the following shortcode:

[ebay campaignid="YourCampaignID" keywords="Product Keywords" rows="RowCount" columns="ColumnCount" pagination="yes" vertical="yes"]

Required Parameters:

  • campaignid
  • keywords

Be sure to set the campaignid to your own eBay campaign ID. keywords should contain the keywords for products you want in your store. Separate the keywords with spaces, and if you want to exclude a particular word, prefix it with a - character. If you want, you can put multiple stores on the same page or post. Just place multiple shortcodes with the product info you wish to display in each store.

Optional Parameters:

  • rows (Default: 5)
  • columns (Default = 2)
  • pagination (Default: none)
  • vertical (Default: no)

Set row to the number of product rows you want to display and and column to the number of product columns you want to display.

If you specify the pagination="yes" parameter, it will enable pagination of the store page. If you have multiple stores on one page, this may cause some odd results if the stores do not have the same row and column count.

If you specify the vertical="yes", it will place the item info below the image rather than to the right of it.

Displaying a Store as a Widget

  1. Go to Appearance > Widgets in WordPress.
  2. Select the section where you want the widget to appear and click Show.
  3. Click the Add button next to the Free eBay Store widget.
  4. Be sure to enter your Campaign ID and Keywords. For multiple keywords, separate them with a pipe character (|), e.g. star wars lego|inflatable pool|swingset. When multiple keywords are used, one of them will be selected at random each time the widget is displayed.
  5. Select the number of items to display.
  6. Select the HTML code to display before the widget.
  7. Select the HTML code to display after the widget.
  8. Click Save Changes.
