Hello Guys. Just had 2 quick issues. For one i like to use a csv file to create products but the issue i have is that when i want to add description to a csv file it doesnt import into magento. I have to actually input the descriptions in magento and this can be very time consuming if you have 1000s of products. Does anybody know a way around this so one can just import description into csv file then import it into magento?

Also if an item has 1 qty in stock and it sells m2e pro relists the item untill we add tracking number. Has anybody had this problem? Thanks

Hi Ike,

If you’re dealing with volumes of products, we’d suggest using Magmi. It does a better job than Magento‘s default import and export functionality.

Here’s our tutorial on Magmi

With regard to your problem with M2e, I haven’t experienced that myself. But if I bumped to other exisiting or new threads and see the same concern then I’ll let you know.
