M2E & Changing eBay User ID

Hello all,

We need to change one of our eBay user IDs and it’s currently associated with an M2E setup.

Is it a simple thing to change on M2E? Obviously, I assume we change it on eBay and then change it in the M2E settings? After doing this, will M2E continue to work seamlessly or should I expect some problems?

I plan to do it late at night when it’s quiet and take a backup first.

If anyone can shed any insight into this that would be appreciated?

Hey Matt

That is exactly right, we would recommend changing it on eBay first, and then updating it in M2E Pro, and everything should match up with no problems at all.

Late at night would be best purely to reduce the risk of an order sneaking in. It is incredibly unlikely but entirely possible ha ha

Let us know how you get on :)
