M2E Pro is developed to work based on core Magento functionality, meaning the Module correctly identifies all of the product updates made through the Magento interface and synchronizes them on the Channel accordingly. In case 3rd party modules are used to update such information as Product Quantity, Price, status, etc. in Magento, then programmatic adjustments are required to ensure that the product updates are caught by M2E Pro.
Magmi Import Tool provides product changes via direct SQL injections (i.e. not through the standard Magento functionality). M2E Pro plug-in for Magmi Import Tool allows notifying the Module to reflect such product updates correctly.
To set up the Tool, please complete the following steps:
If M2E Pro Plug-in is installed and works properly, Magmi extension will keep a log of product updates. You will notice a message similar to the one below:
plugin;M2eProChangesCatcher;std:Ess M2ePro Product Changes Inspector v x.x.x- Will be checked 15677 products.plugin;M2eProChangesCatcher;std:Ess M2ePro Product Changes Inspector v x.x.x- Not presented (skipped): 15664 ## Existed (skipped): 0 ## Processed: 13.
The relevant product changes will also be reflected in 'm2epro_listing_product_instruction' table.
After you upgrade your M2E Pro, it is important to ensure that the existent plug-in version is still compliant with the Extension. Please check the latest plug-in version at this link. Then, compare the available version with the one you have installed in the Magmi tool:
If they are different, please follow the steps above to update the plug-in.
If you are using M2E Pro plug-in for Magmi Import tool, the Track Direct Database Changes feature is not required. It is recommended to disable the 'Track Direct Database' option. It allows using your Magento resources more efficiently.
