So…… We have M2EPRO working fine it pulls orders into magento from ebay and marks them dispatched etc etc all good.
We can send products to ebay from magento and list them much quicker all good.

Now how about the 3000 active listings on ebay controlled from inventory manager, what is best way to start controlling them from magento?
We need to:-
1. Keep item number and placement rank
2. Change listing template to widget chimp one we have set up
3. Change listing to m2epro shipping policies
4. Move stock from ebay inventory manager to magento
5. Remove from ebay inv manager.

Surely this is a situation everyone is in that has started using M2EPRO? but why cant we find and good info on how best to do this transition.
I think a video is required guys! or is there one i have missed?

Hi,

In widgetchimp there is a tool called export my listing designed specifically for what you need. I’m not sure if its included in standard widgetchimp membership or whether you have to be a premium on understandinge

Thanks for the solo response Paul, i have used the widget chimp export and 6hrs later it gives me a csv file thats pretty useless as our live adds are already full of html so we cannot take the descriptions from there. Although it has some useful info it still doesnt get us from using ebay to list to using M2EPRO.
Very disappointed in the lack off response on this and its clear now what we have been lead to believe M2EPRO can do it just cant!

I haven’t used the tool as I’m concentrating on amazon at the moment but from the memory the idea of the tool is so it gives you enough information to able to import the listings via magmi into magento then you automatically map your 3rd party listings to them so that you then can control them through m2e pro.

It should also give you a txt file which shows you which attributes and attributes sets that need to be set up (this cannot be done via magmi)

There is a lot of data to collect which is why it can take a while but saves huge amount over doing it manually.

You’ll need to import your eBay listings into m2epro/magento using a csv file. If widget chimp does this, then this is the way. Anytime you export listings out of eBay it will always have HTML in it, there’s no real way around this. Once you have your items in Magento the SKU in magento must match your eBay SKU (Custom Label). After all your items look exactly as how you want them too, pricing in tact, descriptions and titles, item specifics, then you need to sync your items using the 3rd party listing feature from m2epro. Test a few items first before you go full blast to make sure everything is syncing correctly. If you do it right, you won’t lose your sales history and m2epro takes over your eBay listings.
