Listing Automation eBay

Hi All,

I am currently creating Listing (Templates) and setting the Auto Add/Remove Rules to list to eBay automatically.

Is there any way to create them (I have a lot of them) but make them inactive?

I see no way to do this.

I want to be able to add products on our website, but not to show on eBay yet. But still be able to create automation rules.

Howdy Norman,

The automation rules use the synchronization settings from the policy applied to the listing group in M2EPro, normally you would want that policy to list products. You could set this not to, but be FULLY aware that changing it, will affect the listings that have it assigned to it.

So with that in mind, using one or more separate listing groups that don’t contain any live listings with a separate sync policy would achieve what you’re looking for. Then once set up, change the sync policy and the items should then be listed to eBay.
