Improvements

Variation Labels of Configurable Products

In previous versions if your Variation Label was the same as one of the Item Specifics, eBay did not recognize the double information and returned an error. So M2E Pro starts to ignore this Item Specifics value to prevent such error. But in that case the Product used to be unavailable for buyers in search results by the Specific. So Sellers rate could be affected.

In new version of M2E Pro this mechanism was improved and now M2E Pro "overwrites" the Magento Attribute to the same value as an Item Specifics Label. So the Product is available in according search results.

Note, this functionality is available only for Configurable Magento Products.

For  example, you set for Item Specific "Color" to use a Magento Attribute "Color D"

You product varies by this Attribute "Color D".

When you List your Product, M2E Pro will remove the duplication information and send "Color" as Item Specifics Label instead of "Color D". This replacement will be statically saved in M2E Pro. And your Product will be available in search results on eBay.

Note, if you change the Attribute Label from "Color D" to "Color D2", the value will not be overwritten under Revise/Relist action. In that case you should Stop your Item and then List it again to make changes be applied.

Ability to access Child Magento Product from Variations pop-up

In new version you can easily change any data of Associated (Child) Magento Products directly from the M2E Pro Listing.

To do that you should click on Manage Variation link in a Listing grid and then click on a particular Variation in Magento Variation column of Manage Variations pop-up.

Fixes

Duplicating of the Items

The mechanism of preventing the creation of Item Duplicates was improved and some fixes were implemented.

So in new version it is working correctly.

In previous version the situation when the action was running in circles used to happen. Now it is resolved and working properly.

Amazon Integration

Added

More Amazon Categories in Description Policy

The list of available Amazon Categories in Description Policy is expanded in several times.

So now M2E Pro cannot support only at about 1 % from all Amazon Categories.

Ability to select Product Type for Amazon Category

In previous version for each Category only one Product Type could be selected. So the only one combination of Specifics were available. Thus if you tried to find some Specifics which were not presented, there were nothing to do with that.

In new version of M2E Pro you are able to select/change the Product Type you want to use. So you can change the Specific set any time you need.

For example, you are selling the sell phones accessories like charges. So you need a Specific like "Charging Time" but it is not available. You can go to General tab of Description Policy and change the Product Type, so the needed Specific will become available.

The product types are divided by 3 possible states:

  • M2E Pro propose 1 Product Type to be used in this Category, so it is shown automatically. But you can always change it.

  • M2E Pro propose several Product Types to be used in this Category

  • M2E Pro does not propose any Product Type to be used in this Category.

You can also use up to 5 recently used Product Types for current Marketplace.

The List of available Product Types depends on the Marketplace you are using and varies by them.

You can change the Product Type whenever you need, except those cases, when Category cannot be edit.

Please, read more about Categories settings.

Swatch Images for Child Products

The Settings View Mode allows to manage Description Policy assigned to your Product and run some actions.

Ability to Manage Variation Attributes Matching

Starting from the version 6.3.4 M2E Pro can save the match of Variation Attributes/Options you select.

So now when you click on Manage Variations link in a Listing, you will see new tab Advanced in a grid, where you can manage earlier saved Attributes and Option matching.

This tab is always available and there are two blocks of settings:

  • the block of managing for automatic M2E Pro Actions, where you can select if M2E Pro should always ask you/save/not save the Attributes/Options you matched.

Note, the values set up in this block are global. So they will be used for all your Products.

  • the block of managing of saved matches, where you can observe/remove saved matches.
Wizard of Amazon Marketplace Data Synchronization

The Amazon Marketplaces 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.

Improvements

Correct Support of FBA Items

In previous versions of M2E Pro after the revise of FBA Item it became an MFN Item, so it ruins it's structure.

The latest version has an ability to correctly revise FBA Items. So the quantity, Handling Time and Restock Date data for FBA Items are ignored during revise action. However, the Price, Product Description and other setting can be revised.

List, Relist and Stop Actions are unavailable for FBA Items via M2E Pro. But you can List common Item on Amazon via M2E Pro and mark it as FBA in your Seller Central.

Priority of Variation Themes

For example, in your Magento Product you are using a combination of Variational Attributes Color&Size, but M2E Pro change them in Variation Theme settings to Size&Color. But now M2E Pro analyze how often each combination was selected and will not change it if it should not be done.

Ability to access Child Magento Product from Variations pop-up
