Add Item Specifics For eBay
Currently Storefeeder doesn't have the capability of allowing you to add item specifics to eBay via the Bulk Upload process when creating new listings. This has to be done directly on eBay then you would need to contact Storefeeder Support in order for them to be imported locally by the staff. Surely, this is not the best way forward as the amount of listing any seller does would be you would constantly have a ticket.
Proposal would be add the feature of adding item specifics for eBay via Bulk Upload using a CSV file. Am sure there are plenty of other sellers who would find this use?!

this can be done using "Product Attributes". These are on a PRODUCT level, not listing level, which confused me too.
1. Add all the item specifics you need to the PRODUCTS you're listing on eBay. These are Freetext fields, so you'll still have to look up valid values on eBay.
2. Then under the eBay Integration settings, go to "eBay Item Specifics" and create a new template for your product category.
3. Then map the "Product Attributes" to the relevant "Item Specifics". All the "Product Attributes" you added to Products will appear under the "Custom Attributes" heading.
It's confusing due to the terminology being different on every screen, but it allowed us to do bulk updates of item specifics on our products, once the mappings had been setup.
Storefeeder team - perhaps consistent naming would help a lot of users.
The "Product Attributes" in Products are called "Custom Attributes" in eBay settings + they are not the same as the "Product Attributes" in the Product attribute manager.

This would be very useful especially as eBay are currently rearranging their required item specifics on all categories, requiring us to update all our listings
