This article talks about the 90-days data export restriction by eBay and shows a cool and quick way to overcome it.

Last updated on June 28, 2021

The simple answer to this is – you can’t do it on eBay!
(But we have a solution…keep reading to know more)

eBay is a great platform but it has this restriction.
It restricts users from viewing data that is over 90 days.

Export eBay data for about 90 days

For about 90 days, you can access old listings through –
(1) Selling manager
(2) Past correspondence with links, such as listing confirmation emails
(3) Get the listing number from the invoice for the month when you listed the item and enter it in the regular search box. If it was a free insertion, click on “Promotional savings (view details).”

After 90 days, you need luck

Entering the listing number in the regular search box will usually only work for about 90 days but once in a while you can get a listing that’s considerably older than that, so it’s worth a try.

For example: If you enter a listing 271706423774 in the search box it might bring up a transaction from last December.
Pay attention to the words – ‘IT MIGHT’

This method of trial and error a.k.a luck is not reliable.
As eBay store owners, you need a more quick and reliable way to look back at your historical data.

Putler is the solution.

Putler helps export data from eBay for over 90 days

Yes, once you connect your single eBay store or multiple eBay stores to Putler, it will pull in the last 3 months’ historic data that’s provided by eBay.

From there on, it will start collecting all the real-time data from your eBay store.

You can then access all this data anytime in the future without worrying about the 90 days restriction that’s present on eBay.

Let’s understand this with an example:

Suppose you have an eBay store and you connect it to Putler on 1st April 2021, Putler will pull in the last 3 months’ data (i.e from 1st Jan 2021 to 1st April 2021) that’s provided by eBay. It will also start collecting real-time data.

Now suppose it’s June 2022 and you want to see your last year’s sales (Jan 2021 – Dec 2021). All you need to do is come to Putler and select the date range. Putler will show you the records.

So in short, unlike eBay which only allows you to go back 90 days, Putler saves all your data from the moment you connect your store to Putler and lets you transverse back and forth and view over 90 days of data as well. You can then export this eBay data as CSV or view reports/information within Putler.
