General

If you are an existing eBay seller and want to manage your Channel inventory based on Magento data, you may use the 3rd Party Listing functionality. To import 3rd party Items to M2E Pro, the '3rd Party Listings Import' option must be enabled in your Account configuration.

Note

Only 3rd party Items which are not older than 4 years can be imported.

All imported 3rd Party Items can be found under eBay > Listings > 3rd Party. Items from the different eBay accounts/sites will be stored in the separate Listings.


By opening a Listing, you can review the related Items: their title, SKU, product identifier, current quantity, price, and status on the Channel.

Note

Please be advised that it is important to have the same SKU values for products you are going to map.

You can manage the Items in bulk using the Actions menu: map/unmap the Items, move them to M2E Pro Listing or remove from the 3rd Paty Listing. To do it, please select the Items, then apply the required action.

  • Map Item(s) Automatically - allows automatically mapping selected Items to Magento Products based on the mapping settings.
  • Unmap Item(s) - allows unmapping selected Items from Magento Products.
  • Move Item(s) to Listing - allows moving selected mapped Items to M2E Pro Listing.
  • Remove Item(s) - allows removing selected Items from the 3rd Party Listing.

Tip

You can narrow your selection using the filter options:

Before M2E Pro starts managing your 3rd Party Items, you need to map them with the relevant Magneto Products, then move to M2E Pro Listing. Let's overview the steps to proceed.

Mapping to Magento Product

To update your eBay Item with Magento data, you need to map it to Magento Product. Please ensure that selected Magento Product fully corresponds to your eBay Item.

When mapping Variational Products it's important to provide identical specifics set. This means that the number of variations, titles and labels should coincide. For example, eBay Variational Item with green, blue and red options can only be mapped to the Magento Product with the same variational options. Otherwise, eBay will restrict updating the Item.

How to map Item automatically

To map the 3rd party Items to Magento products automatically, i.e. based on the mapping settings, please complete the following steps:

  • Select eBay Items you want to map.
  • Submit the Map Item(s) Automatically action.

How to map Item manually

You can map an individual Item to a relevant Magento Product manually. To do it, please complete the following steps:

  • click Map next to the Item:

  • in the opened window, click Map to this Product next to the relevant Magento Product:

Assign eBay Category

Please be noticed that it is important to assign eBay category to the Item before it will be placed to M2E Pro Listing.

eBay category data does not remain for an Item when it is imported to the Module. So the settings will have to be configured for the products from scratch.

After you submit the Item moving, you will be redirected to the Set eBay Category step. You need to assign exactly the same category as you have on the channel for this product to continue managing this item via M2E Pro.

 

Moving to M2E Pro Listing

After you map the Items, they can be moved to M2E Listing. You can apply the Move action to each Item individually or manage the Items in bulk.

To move several eBay Items at once, you need to:

  • filter out the mapped Items;
  • select all filtered Items;
  • apply the Move Item(s) to Listing action;

  • in the opened window, click Move To This Listing next to the required M2E Pro Listing. You can create a new Listing on the fly by pressing Add New Listing.

If you need to move a single Item to M2E Pro Listing, please complete the following steps:

  • click Move next to the Item:

  • in the opened window, click Move To This Listing next to the required M2E Pro Listing or create a new Listing by pressing Add New Listing.

 

Tip

M2E Pro will automatically schedule the synchronization of 3rd Party Item with Magento data right after the Item is placed into M2E Pro Listing.
