Importing Parts Compatibilities for US Motorcycles

By using the 'Bulk Import' feature you can quickly create compatibility lists for new or existing profiles, cutting down the time it takes in listing to eBay. Importing of multiple compatibilities is done through two special 'relationship' fields in your import file. An example import is shown below.

  profile_name relationship relationship_details title primary_ebay_category
1 Brake Pads     Ultimate Brake Pads 35569
2   compatibility Year=2011|Make=Harley-Davidson|Model=Road King    
3 Alloy Wheels        
4   compatibility Year=2000-2011|Make=Harley-Davidson|Model=Road King    
5   compatibility Year=2012|Make=Kawasaki|Model=KLX|Submodel=140L    
6   compatibility ePID=110785266    

This example shows the importing of two profiles. The first profile is assoicated with one compatibility while the second is associated with three compatibilities using a variety of formats. Profiles and their compatibility lists follow a hierarchical relationship. What this means is that profile information is entered on one row with compatibilities appearing on subsequent rows beneath. Rows for profiles leave the fields relationship and relationship_details empty while compatibility rows specify the value compatibility in the relationship field and use the relationship_details field for the vehicle information.

Specifying vehicle information

The relationship_details field allows you to define values for Year, Make, Model, Submodel, Notes and ePID. Information is entered by using a field and value pair separated by the equals sign, i.e., <field>=<value>. Multiple pairs are seperated by using the pipe character, e.g., Year=2012|Make=Kawasaki|Model=KLX.

The minimum required fields for describing a compatibility is either Year, Make and Model or ePID.

  • Year=2011|Make=Harley-Davidson|Model=Road King
  • ePID=110785266

The year field can be a single year or a date range when using the dash character.

Year=2011
A single year.
Year=2000-2011
All years from 2000 to 2011 inclusive.

The system will match multiple vehicles for the required fields Year, Make and Model. Vehicles that do not exist for the specified years will not be included.
E.g. The compatibility Year=2000-2011|Make=Harley-Davidson|Model=Road King will be expanded into the following compatibility list.

Year Make Model Submodel
2011 Harley-Davidson Road King Classic
2011 Harley-Davidson Road King --

Year Make Model Submodel
2001 Ducati Monster 900 Dark
