This is Default mode of adding Magento Variational Product into M2E Pro Listing. In this mode Magento Variational Product is listed as Amazon Variational Product.
Before listing Magento Variational Product on Amazon you should assign ASIN/ISBN with a help of Search Tool.
Note: You should assign ASIN/ISBN of Amazon Parent Product to Magento Parent Product.
If the number of Attributes in Amazon Variational Product and Magento Variational Product is different, you should create a Virtual Attribute.
There are two possible cases:
- Magento Product has less Attributes then Amazon Product.
For example, your Magento Product varies by Attribute "Color D" but the according Amazon Product contains two Variational Attributes "Color" and "Size".
So you should select a fixed value of the second Amazon Attribute (in our case it is Size) that does not exist in Magento Product.
So M2E Pro will virtualize the Attribute and think that your Variational Product is available with Attribute Color and Size Medium.
Note, the Variations of Magento Variational Product for Attribute Color D will be available only in a combination with fixed option of Virtual Attribute (in our case it is Size Medium).
The Magento Order for such product will contain only the physically available Attribute (in our case it is a Color D) of Magento Product. So it means if the buyer order the Product with Virtual Attribute Size Medium and an Attribute available in your Magento Product Color D Green, the Magento Order will contain only data for Item with Attribute Color D Green.
- Magento Product has more Attributes than Amazon Product.
For example, your Magento Product varies by Attributes "Color D, Size D and Manufacturer D" but the according Amazon Product contains two Variational Attributes "Color" and "Size".
So you should select a fixed value of the Magento Attribute Manufacturer D that does not exist in Amazon Product.
So M2E Pro will virtualize the Attribute and think that your Variational Product is available with Attributes Color D, Size D and Manufacturer D Anashria.
The Magento Order for such product will contain all the physically available Attributes (in our case it is a Color D, Size D and Manufacturer D) of your Magento Product, but for those Attribute which were virtualized on Amazon (in our case it is a Manufacturer D) only the selected option (Anashria) will be available.
There is no way to change selected Virtual Attribute.
When ASIN/ISBN is assigned, M2E Pro automatically matches Magento Attributes with Amazon Attributes. If they are not matched automatically, you can do it manually.
When ASIN/ISBN is assigned, you can see it in the ASIN/ISBN column.
If you want to edit matched Attributes, click Manage Variations.
When Attributes are matched, M2E Pro proceeds to the creation of Child Products basing on the matching of Options. M2E Pro automatically matches Magento Variations with Amazon Variations and creates Child Products.
You can manually match Magento Variations with Amazon Variation by clicking Manage Variations.
Choose remaining Variations from Magento side (which were not matched automatically) and Variations from Amazon side which are not yet used.
When Variations are matched, click Add New Child button. You will see all the added Child Products. Next to each Child Product you will see ASIN/ISBN. This is ASIN/ISBN of corresponded Amazon Child Product.
In case you change titles of Magento Attributes or Options (e.g., Color to Colour, Red to Light-Red) and M2E Pro does not manage to re-match them with Amazon Attributes, Options automatically, you should do it manually. You will not be able to synchronize your Magento Product (list, relist, revise etc.) and create orders for it until the Attributes and Options are matched.
When Attributes and Options are matched you can list Child Products you created.
Note: The estimation of price and quantity for Amazon Child Product is the same as for Amazon Simple Product.
Magento Parent Product does not have Price, Quantity, SKU as this information is only related to Child Products
. That is why in the SKU, Price, QTY columns the N/A
value will be always displayed.
When listing Magento Variational Product on Amazon only Child Products are actually listed and added into your Amazon Inventory. The List action is not executed for Magento Parent Product.
Note: List action is executed for Magento Parent Product only if you create New ASIN/ISBN
When Magento Product is listed, its status changes to “Active”. The status of the Magento Parent Product is collected from the statuses of Magento Child Products. Next to each status a number of Child Products which use it is indicated.
Active Child Products will be shown in Seller Central View Mode.
