Create multiple line items in Airtable from eBay orders?

When a new order is created in eBay, my Zap creates an Order and a related Order Line Item in two corresponding tables in Airtable When Orders with more than 1 line item occur, will the Zap create multiple line items?  I’m not sure how to test this, since the test orders seem to be chosen automatically.

Hi @mlkla 

For line items to work, you need to verify that eBay sends line-items data and your action app (airtable) can receive the line-item data. If your test data doesn’t show the actual record you want to display, you can turn on the Zap and after an order is placed then check the history of the Zap. 


If eBay sends data in a line-item structure (data separated by comma) you can just add them in the fields that accept line-item and it will work.

Thanks @robschmidt 

I was able to set up the Zap to create an Order, as well as a single Order Line item associated with the Order in a different table while maintaining the relationship between the two - so things are working as expected in this scenario.  I’m just not sure how the Zap will preform if/when there are multiple line items within the same order. I suppose I can just monitor the orders and wait to see what happens.

Hopefully as you suggest, the multiple item scenario and it will ‘just work.’
