Pirate Ship’s eBay integration makes it simple to import your "paid" unshipped eBay orders and turn them into shipping labels. When you ship an eBay order using Pirate Ship, the order is automatically set to "Shipped" in eBay and the tracking number and carrier type are sent back to eBay.

Here's how to connect your eBay store to your Pirate Ship account:
- From your Pirate Ship account just head to Settings > Integrations > Connect New Source > eBay and authorize the connection.
Once your eBay account is connected, when you click Import from eBay (or Import from Integrations if you have multiple stores connected) you’ll see all of the orders with the status Not Started / In Progress. Only orders with the financial status Paid are displayed. Pirate Ship will refresh the data periodically, but make sure to click the Refresh Data button so you’re always looking at the most current order list.
You can click any of the columns to filter or sort the data to group and select which orders you would like to create shipments for.
In Pirate Ship’s Settings > Integrations > eBay page you can edit the Field Mapping to have some of the eBay order data printed in small text in the corner of the shipping label. This is commonly used to print Order Items or an Order ID on each label, which can be helpful.
What happens if you refund a label for an order you imported from eBay?
If you refund a label, we cannot set the order to the status Unshipped in eBay, so that order will not be visible in the Import page in Pirate Ship. If you still need to ship this order, you'll need to manually create a label by going to Ship > Create a Single Label and filling out the form. Once you've created a label manually, you can copy/paste the tracking number back into eBay.
