Tip

You can save the settings as a Policy to apply the same configurations to the different M2E Pro Listings or override the Listing settings for individual Items. For more details, please read this article.

How You Want To Sell Your Item

Listing Type - determines the sale type of the Listing. You can select from such options:

  • Fixed Price - means that the Items in this Listing will be available on eBay with the fixed price value. So the Buyer can purchase them immediately without any bidding.
  • Auction - means that the Buyers place bids to win the Item.
  • Magento Attribute - means that the Listing type for each item in the Listing will be taken from the selected Magento Attribute value.

Private Listing - determines whether the Buyers are allowed to remain anonymous to other eBay users.

For Business Users Only -  if this option is enabled, this indicates that you elect to offer the Item exclusively to Business users. If Disabled, this indicates that you elect to offer the Item to all users. Applicable only to Business sellers residing in Germany, Austria, or Switzerland who are listing in a B2B VAT-enabled category on the eBay Germany (DE), Austria (AT), or Switzerland (CH) marketplaces. If this argument is Enabled, you must have a valid VAT-ID registered with eBay, and BusinessSeller must also be true.

Quantity and Duration

Listing Duration – determines how long Items will be available for Buyers on eBay. You can set it from 1 to 30 days value or GTC (Good 'Til Cancelled). For Fixed Price Listing Type, Good 'Til Cancelled is a permanent value, according to eBay terms. GTC Listings renew automatically once per calendar month unless all of the Items sell, you end the Listing, or the Listing breaches an eBay Policy.

Quantity – the number of Items you want to sell on eBay. You can set it from the next options:

  • Product Quantity – the number of Items on eBay will be the same as in Magento Inventory.
  • Custom Value – allows you to provide the value which should be displayed on eBay.
  • Magento Attribute – takes the number from the Attribute you set.

Quantity Percentage – sets the percentage for calculation of Items quantity to be listed on eBay basing on Product Quantity or a value from Magento Attribute.

For example, if Quantity Percentage is set to 80% and Product Quantity is 10, the Quantity to be Listed on eBay will be 8.

Conditional Quantity (only available when the Product Quantity or Magento Attribute is chosen) – allows to set a maximum and minimum number of Item to sell on eBay.

  • Minimum Quantity to Be Listed - e.g. if you have 2 pieces in stock but set a Min Quantity to be Listed of 5, Item will not be Listed on eBay.
    Otherwise, the Item will be Listed with Quantity according to the settings in Selling Policy.
  • Maximum Quantity to Be Listed - e.g. if you have 10 items in stock but want to keep 2 Items back, set a Maximum Quantity to Be Listed of 8.
  • eBay Lot Size   – an ability to sell items in lots. The lot is a set of two or more identical or similar items that must be purchased together. Selling in lots can be helpful, for example, when your goods more likely will be sold in bulk than individually or when you need to quickly move your stock. To set it up you need to choose Custom Value in Specify Lot Size field and then enter a number of items in Lot

Note

Lot Size value does not affect the number of ordered Items and Magento Product quantity. It just informs the customers how many items are included in the Lot they have bought.

Out Of Stock Control (only available for GTC Listing Duration) - this is helpful if you are waiting for additional stock of an Item with the same eBay Item ID. Instead of ending the Listing and then recreating it when the inventory arrives, you can use this flag to hide the Listing. When you have the Item available, automatic or manual Revise will update the inventory and the Listing will appear again.

Note: Once you List a Product with this option it cannot be changed. To cancel it you should Stop and List the Item again.

Ignore Variations – choose how to List Configurable, Bundle, Grouped and Simple with Custom Options Products on eBay: as Simple products (set Yes) or as multiple variations of one item (set No).

Note: Once you List a Product with this option it cannot be changed. To cancel it you should Stop and List the Item again.

Taxation

Set VAT Rate if you sell your items on European eBay Sites or use eBay Tax Table if you sell on US, CA or eBay Motors site.

 

VAT Rate - to set it, you must have an eBay Business Account and List the item on a VAT-enabled marketplace: Ireland, India, Switzerland, Spain, Holland, Belgium, Italy, Germany, France, Austria or the United Kingdom. The item's VAT information appears on the Item's Listing page.

Use eBay Tax Table - choose if you want to use the tax table for your eBay Account to charge sales tax. Tax tables are set up directly on eBay, not in M2E Pro. To set up or edit tax tables, log in to your seller account on eBay. They are available only for Canada, Canada (Fr), USA, and eBay Motors.

Tax will be added to or included in Item Price according to the Add VAT Percentage field settings located in the Price section below.

Price

Add VAT Percentage – choose whether you want to add VAT Rate to the price when an item is listed on eBay:

  • Yes - VAT Rate will act as excluded and will be added to the item price.

  • No - VAT Rate will be included in the final item price.

Here is an example of how the price will be calculated depending on how you configure the Add VAT Percentage option:

Example: For a Product with Magento Price = £10, VAT rate = 19%, Price Change Percentage Increase = 2%, the final eBay Price will be £12.14.
Magento Price: £10
VAT 19%: £10 * 19% = £1.90
Magento Price + VAT = £10 + £1.90 = £11.90
add Percentage Increase 2% = £11.90 * 2% = £0.24

Final price on eBay: £11.90 + £0.24 = £12.14

Watch our video tutorial on how to apply eBay VAT (Value Added Tax) to Magento products via M2E Pro.

The set of the price settings depends on the Listing Selling Type.

Fixed Price ListingsAuction Listings

Price-fixed price for immediate purchase.

  • Variation Price (applicable only for Magento Bundle Products) –
    determines the source of the Price value for Bundle Product options:
    Main Product – the Price value for variation options will be taken from the Main
    Product.
    Associated Products – the Price value for variation options will be taken from
    the Associated Products.
  • Strike Through Price - allows Seller to show the preceding Price of the Item
    (historical or recommended) in a line-through format. More information can be found here.

  • Minimum Advertised Price - allows a buyer to get a discount calculated as a difference
    between Minimum Advertised Price and the retail Product Price. Please read more information here.
  • Start Price – the lowest Price Auction can be stated.

  • "Buy It Now" Price – the Fixed Price for immediate purchase.
    Find out more about adding a Buy It Now price.

  • Reserve Price – the lowest Price at which you are selling an Item.
    eBay charges some additional fees for using this option.

There are three options you can use to set the Prices:

  • Product Price – the Price on eBay will be the same as in Magento.
  • Special Price – the Special Price will be sent on eBay.

If the Special Price is expired or not set, the Product Price will be used instead. The table below demonstrates how it would work with different settings.

Current Date
(dd/mm)

Product Price

Special Price
from: 05/01to: 10/01

Price on eBay
04/01$20$15$20
05/01$20$15$15
06/01$20$15$15
09/01$20$15$15
10/01$20$15$15
11/01$20$15$20
N/A$20$15$20

Note: If the Special Price is specified as a Magento Attribute - Special Price which does not contain any value, the Product Price cannot be used instead and you will receive an error from eBay.

  • Magento Attribute – the value of the chosen Attribute will be sent on eBay.

If you are going to list your Product on the Marketplaces with different Base Currency and the Price value is set to be taken from Magento Attribute with Price input type, you can enable the automatic Currency conversion.

You can change the Price on eBay compared to the Price on your Magento Store via Price Change option. There are 4 options available to you.

  • Absolute Value increase – this will increase the Price on eBay compared to the Price in Magento, e.g. if you wish to increase the Price of an Item selling on eBay by £1.50, type "1.5" into the box.
  • Absolute Value decrease – this will reduce the Price on eBay compared to the Price in Magento, e.g. if you wish to reduce the Price of an Item selling on eBay by £1.50, type "1.5" into the box.
  • Percentage increase (%) – this will increase the Price on eBay compared to the Price in Magento, e.g. you wish to increase by 10% the Price of a £2.00 Item selling on your Magento store. In the box type "10%". The Item will then go on sale for £2.20 on eBay.
  • Percentage decrease (%) – this will reduce the Price on eBay compared to the Price in Magento, e.g. you wish to reduce by 10% the Price of a £2.00 Item selling on your Magento store. In the box type "10%". The Item will then go on sale for £1.80 on eBay.

Donation

Donation - allows supporting your favorite charities by setting up donation percentage which will be transferred to the particular organization.

Currency

If eBay Marketplace currency does not match Magento Base currency the currency conversion will be performed to Prices while listing the Products.

You will see a notification about it.

Currency Conversation performs according to exchange rates set in Magento. How to set up these settings read Magento documentation.

eBay Canada and eBay Canada (French) allow using both USD and CAD currencies.

If you have some errors in exchange rates settings, you will be alerted about them:

  • to fix this you should go to System -> Configuration -> Currency Setup tab -> Currency Options panel,
    choose necessary currencies in the 'Allowed Currencies' option and Save Configuration.
  • to fix this you should go to System -> Manage Currency -> Rates, set up necessary exchange rates, and Save Currency Rates.

Best Offer

Allow Best Offer – allows you to accept offers from buyers and negotiate a Price. You can accept Best Offers on Fixed Price and Classified Ads in certain categories, such as eBay Motors. Click here to find out more.

You can respond buyers manually (directly from the eBay site) or use auto Accept and Decline. Using these options allows you to save your time and makes your work easier.

  • Accept Offers of at Least – the Price at which (or greater than) an offer will be automatically accepted.
  • Decline Offers Less Than – the Price at which (or less than) an offer will be automatically declined.

If you use % of Price to set auto-respond settings, Accept and Decline values will be calculated as:

Accept Offers >= Buy It Now Price * 75 / 100;
Decline Offers <= Cost attribute value.

Magento Attributes for these options must contain appropriate Prices (only numeric values).

eBay requires the following condition to be met:

"Decline Best Offers" Price < "Accept Best Offers" Price < "Buy It Now" Price
