I had been previously using a Dataflow importer which worked fine but just slow. MAGMI is much faster importer. The problem I am currently running into is that with the dataflow importer the new items I created in the catalog would automatically end up in a “Listing”in M2EPRO. I have M2EPRO setup to add products to listings when they are created in certain categories I have selected. However, when importing with MAGMI this doesn’t automatically happen like before. I do have M2EPRO set to “Track Database Changes” in the M2EPRO settings.

Any ideas what I need to do get this to work? Because the savings in time by importing with MAGMI are soon lost if I have to go back in and add each product to a M2EPRO “listing”.

Howdy,

I don’t believe that this a problem with Magmi, rather that I’ve never seen a product that has been imported from either Magmi or the dataflow tool be automatically added to M2EPro in a listing before.

Are you 100% sure that happens with dataflow, because I’m not sure that’s correct (maybe wrong though).

Yep, I can confirm that I have added over 4,000 products with a Dataflow import and all of them automatically ended up in M2EPRO. I have set the M2EPRO listing settings to import new products automatically when they are added to certain categories. It appears though that either Magento or M2EPRO doesn’t see these as new products when imported via MAGMI.

Howdy,

Ah ha! That would be it then.

Yep track database changes and make sure you have a cron running every 5 mins or so.

Remember that Magmi is a database extension, not a Magento extension and as such updates the database directly. So it will take M2E a while to figure out that changes have been made.

Try running an import of new items with the cron set and track database changes enabled over night and see what she does.
