AutoDS is a popular all-in-one eBay dropshipping platform that automates the process of generating listings, monitoring price/stock changes, handling customer service and fulfilling orders. Some of the suppliers it supports include Amazon, Bang good, Home Depot, Walmart and AliExpress.
There are lots of platforms available for you to list your items with, so make sure to do your own research, but here are some of the key features of AutoDS:
AutoDS integrates seamlessly with ZIK Analytics so you can export all of your items in order to create eBay listings with ease.
Remember, before you can list your items with AutoDS, you’ll need to create a list of items that you wish to export. We’ll show you how to do that below.
To organize all the items that you wish to list with AutoDS, you need to create an item folder. Once you have an item folder, you can save any hot items you find whilst using any of the tools included with ZIK Analytics such as the manual scanner.
Creating an item folder is very straightforward and can only takes 2 simple steps:
Once you click “Create Folder”, the folder will appear.
If you don’t create a folder you will still be able to save items, however any item you save will appear in the “unorganized folder”.
You can add items to a folder anytime you use the category research, competitor research or product research tools. Here’s how:
Look for the green and red buttons to the side of any product. A green button means that ZIK Analytics has a 99% chance of locating the item on Amazon, whereas a red button means ZIK Analytics is unable to find it and you’ll need to search manually.
If you click on a green button, a popup will appear showing the item on Amazon and on eBay like the one below:
However if you click on a red button, a popup will appear like the one below instead, as ZIK Analytics is unable to locate the item on Amazon automatically. For these items, you’ll need to manually locate the ASIN and then click “Reload” under the Reload ASIN box. To locate the ASIN, you can search for the product image or part of the product description in Google.
Your items will now be ready in the your folder, ready to be uploaded to AutoDS.
If you’re subscribed to ZIK Pro Tools, you can also add items to folders using the bulk scanner. After scanning a seller, you’ll have a list of all the items they’re selling.
You can filter by profit, sales, price, sales range and upload date and then use the checkboxes on the side to select some or all of the items you wish to save.
Once you’ve decided, simple select the folder from the dropdown box and click “move”.
Bonus tip: Edit your titles before uploading your listings to AutoDS
Before you upload your listings, you need to make sure you’ve optimized your eBay titles so you get as many sales as possible.
Luckily you can do this very easily from within the item folders (via Management Panel - My Folders).
You should see 4 different icons next to items within your folder. When you click “edit item” at the top you’ll be able to edit the title (as well as ASIN, and prices).
Our short guide will show you how to export items from ZIK Analytics to AutoDS so that you can turn more of the profitable items you’ve found into sales!
Note: if you have more than 1 store, each individual store will have a seperate token. You can integrate all your stores with ZIK Analytics by copying all the tokens.
From here you can paste your token, along with the name of your store and choose “AutoDS” from the dropdown menu. After doing this click “add store” and your token should be saved into ZIK Analytics.
Important note: The eBay price will not be synced from ZIK Analytics to AutoDS. Instead, AutoDS will set your eBay price based on the settings you have configured in their software such as the minimum profit amount and breakeven percentage.
