In previous versions of M2E Pro if you wanted to add a Compatible Vehicle for a particular part on eBay Motors or UK, DE, AU eBay Sites, you can select it only from the list of available ones, that can be updated during marketplaces synchronization. This list was formed based on the data provided by eBay and cannot be expanded manually, so if particular Vehicle was missing in that list, there was no way to add it.
In current version of M2E Pro you are able to import additional Compatible Vehicles manually into the database to add it to the list of available.
Note: The kTypes database is the same for all available eBay Sites.
You can do it in two ways:
- go to Sell on eBay>Configuration>General, where two separate blocks are available - for ePIDs and kTypes.
Select a Magento Attribute where ePIDs and kTypes values can be stored for each Product.
Then click Manage to add Custom ePIDs or kTypes.
In an opened pop-up you can see a number of added records to the database. Press Import button to add a CSV file to add several Compatible Vehicles at once.
First line of the file should contain names of columns:
- for ePIDs: epid, product_type, make, model, submodel, year, trim, engine
- for kTypes: ktype, make, model, variant, body_style, type, from_year, to_year, engine
There are several required fields:
- for ePIDs: epid, product_type, make, model, submodel, year
- for kTypes: ktype
For ePIDs product_type column you should provide one of these possible values:
- 0 - for Car / Truck type
- 1 - for Motorcycle type
- 2 - for ATV / Snowmobiles type
You can always clear added Compatible Vehicles by pressing Clear button.
Note: if ePID/kType is matched to already existed one in M2E Pro, the priority will have the value already existed in M2E Pro, so added data will be ignored.
- go to the Listing, switch to the Settings View Mode and select Add Compatible Vehicle option in Actions bulk at the top of a grid
After you press Submit button, you can select one of the available Compatible Vehicles and at the end of page you will see an Add Custom Compatible Vehicle button.
Provide necessary data and press Confirm button to add one Custom Compatible Vehicle record.
Note: In this version of M2E Pro new Vehicle type - ATV / Snowmobiles - was added.
After new record is added you can assign as in previous versions.
Manage Variations feature for Variational Items
In new version of M2E Pro you can work with separate Variations of eBay Item. When you add Variational Product into Listing you can see a Manage Variation option
Using this option you can search, filter, sort and manage each Variation separately. Also you can add eBay Catalog Identifiers for each Child Product. In case the value of eBay Catalog Identifier is provided here it will be used in priority over eBay Catalog Identifiers Settings of Description Policy.
For Bundle Products and Simple Products with Custom Options settings for eBay Catalog Identifiers can be provided only for each Variation separately here, as Description Policy settings cannot be applied for them.
Note: markers “will be added” and “will be deleted” mean that Variation will be added/removed during the next Revise action.
Wizard of eBay Sites Data Synchronization
The eBay Sites data changed, so it should be resynchronized. Thus after upgrade you should pass through a Wizard to run the synchronization to update marketplaces data due to technical issues.
