Listing Issues

Hi, I am having issues with M2E. When listing a number of items (only around 10-20) M2E is getting stuck every time at about 25% completion then I only get about 3 or 4 items listed. I check log but cannot see any mention of why this is occurring.
Also, my setting are enabling all active items in stock to be listed, so I would expect this also to be picking up the listings on ebay, but nothing is happening and items remain ‘Not Listed’ for over 2 hours. The only was I can get a succesful listing on Ebay is by listing each one individually but this is going to be painful as I have several thousand products to list.

Any help anyone? If it helps I use siteground as my host, latest versions of CE . Thanks

Hi Iain,

The reason why we don’t suggest Siteground is because they have very low timeout and very low PHP values in their shared hosting, which is most likely causing the timeouts on your screen.

I can only suggest that you contact M2EPro support to see if they have any suggestions for you.

Thanks – this could be the issue. Could you recommend a hosting service? we could have 500k+ products, primarily using magento for m2e purposed. I can see simpleservers getting a recommendation, but will any plan be fine? I just want a server that will reliably run M2E will reliable updates. So far making price updates in magento doesnt seem to be updating in M2E, not sure if I have this set up correctly though or if this is another issue with siteground.

Hi Iain,

500,000 products is a lot of products. Shared hosting won’t cut it for that number of items.

So if you only actually have 3,000 right now stay go with SimpleServers (UK) or SimpleHelix if you’re in the US and it would be worth speaking to either of these to see what they can offer beyond the shared hosting because of your product count will definitely need dedicated resources.

OK, so something like AWS will also be suitable?

Hi Iain,

AWS would work, but I’d personally not suggest it unless you exactly know what you’re doing for the configuration of PHP, MySQl and any accelerators you will be using.

The same advice stands for the shared hosting, pick a web hosting company that is a specialist in Magento web hosting as Magento is a hungry beast and needs well managed resources.
