Importing the file to inFlow
Once you have a file from eBay you can import it into inFlow in the following manner:
- Go to Main Menu > General > Import Data.
- Choose Sales Orders as your data type.
- Click Browse and select the file that you’d like to import (the one you made in step one).
- Click Next.
- Choose whether you want the orders to be created as open or closed.
- Match the columns within your eBay file to the columns in inFlow. We suggest the following matches:

|Addresses (Billing Address)|
|Address Line 1||Buyer Address 1|
|Address Line 2||Buyer Address 2|
