In the new M2E Pro version, an Item Preview tool has been added. When the Preview action is applied, you can see a preliminary eBay Product page. The M2E Pro preview page is only a stylized template, but not an actual eBay page.
There are two possible ways of how you can access the Item Preview page. You can use the option "Preview Added Products Now" after the new Magento Products have been added to an M2E Pro Listing.
Also, you can Preview the Products which have already been Listed on eBay. To see an Item Preview page, you need to tick the appropriate Products from the Listing and select Preview Items from mass actions bulk.
You can choose up to 50 Items to preview at the same time. To move between the Item Preview pages, you can press right arrow and left arrow buttons at the top of the page.
The Preview page displays the main Product data, such as Product Title, Image(s), eBay Item ID, eBay Category path, Item Condition, Quantity, Price and all of the available Product Variations, which will be sent on eBay during the next List/ Revise/ Relist action.
The Preview template also gives you a brief overview of the main Item Specifics, Description, Shipping, Payment and Return data. You can find this information under the corresponding tabs at the bottom of the page. However, the available information does not contain all of the details, only the most essential points.
Ability to set Parts Compatibilities dynamically
In the new M2E Pro version, an ability to dynamically set and manage Parts Compatibility is introduced.
In the previous versions, it was impossible to manage the Parts Compatibility dynamically. If the set of the available ePID(s)/kType(s) changed (e.g. new values were added, or some of the values were removed), the changes in the Parts Compatibility Magento Attribute had to be provided manually.
Unlike the old versions, M2E Pro version 6.3.7 offers a more flexible approach to Parts Compatibility management.
ePID(s)/kType(s) can be manually selected from the common grid and applied to the Parts Compatibility Magento Attribute which is provided in Sell on eBay > Configuration > General.
However, the new functionality also allows Filtering Compatible Vehicles based on various conditions (i.e. Type, Model, etc.) and saving the provided Filters for future usage. After you press the Save Filter button, the specified in the grid columns settings will be saved.
Note: Saving a Filter does not imply its automatic application. If you want to apply any of the saved Filters, you should go to the Filters tab, select the appropriate Filter(s) and apply them by choosing Select action from the mass Actions bulk.
Note: Filters must be saved and applied consciously and wisely, as their application has a direct influence on performance efficiency.
Also, you have an option to Group the appropriate Compatible Vehicles or Filters. You can do it by selecting certain ePID(s)/kType(s) from the common grid and applying Save as a Group Action or by choosing the particular saved Filters under the Filters tab and also applying Save as a Group Action. The Group of ePID(s)/kType(s) or Filters can be reapplied multiple times without any need to manually search for the right Compatible Vehicles all over again.
Using these methods lets you create a set of data which will be further added to the Parts Compatibility Magento Attribute. To add the prepared data set to the Attribute, you can use either Add or Override option.
In the case of using Add option, the prepared ePID/kType values will be Added to the already present in the Attribute values.
If Override option is used, all of the previously present in the Magento Attribute values will be Overridden, and only the newly selected ePID/kType values will be applied.
This approach works for the manually selected ePID(s)/kType(s), Filters and Groups.
The ability to Filter the ePID(s)/kType(s) and Group the appropriate Compatible Vehicles or Filters allows you to set up Parts Compatibility more efficiently.
Ability to select several Configurable Attributes for Variation Images
With the release of the current M2E Pro version, the "Change Images for Attributes" option in the Description Policy has been modified.
Previously, only one Magento Variational Attribute could be selected for this option. The new version provides users with a new possibility to select several relevant Magento Variational Attributes.
Also, you can still use the "Variation Attribute Images" option drop-down to choose an Attribute based on which Images for Multi-Variation Items will change.
