You can import one-way communications from eBay directly to your helpdesk. Here's how:
- Log in to eBay.
- Click on your name in the upper-left corner and select "Account Settings."
- Click Communication Preferences.
- To the right of "Notification Delivery Format," click "Show."
- Edit your registered email address and enter an address that forwards all messages to your Zendesk, Freshdesk, Gorgias or Desk account, or enter a Help Scout mailbox.
Do not enter an email address related to your helpdesk in "Receive messages from other members." Use a personal, junk, or otherwise unrelated email address instead; see "Duplicate Tickets from eBay" for the reason why. Only your registered email address needs to go to your helpdesk.
Buyer messages don't need to be forwarded to your CRM mailbox because ChannelReply will deliver them automatically using the API. (If you don't have a ChannelReply account yet, you can start your free trial here.)
Note that eBay may automatically update your other addresses to match your registered email address. You may have to switch them back after making the change.
I'm Subscribed to Resolution Center Support. Will I Get Double Notifications?
If you've subscribed to Resolution Center Support in your ChannelReply account, or used advanced options to enable management of inquiries, cases, returns and/or new orders, we'll send you our own notifications. These will be in addition to any emails eBay sends you about these actions. As a result, you may see some duplicate notifications if you have both subscribed and followed the instructions above.
