Hi,

We recently stopped using m2e due to the new pricing. Many of our ebay listing have variations where we had originally set the quantity to 1 in m2e and to auto relist after selling. Now without m2e in ebay it is going to zero and nor relisting the variations.

Has anybody else found this problem and found a solution?

TIA

I guess this is the real value of m2e (i.e. automated relist mitigating eBay limits) which is meant to save you time / and cost of listing management .. Your eBay inventory needs to be adjusted somehow…

Starting to feel a bit lost without it tbh, but can’t justify the £300+ a month to the boss that it’s worth it. For now, looks like a case of going through ebay and manually adding the quantities.

Oh well… Everything is relative.. Ask your boss to try channel advisor :-) ? You may build your own, simple link via eBay API? We attempted to do a similar thing but have given up. Our focus is on growth not on cost.. We will let our competition to worry about their costs while we sell.

Maybe try to build a case which calculates the amount of hours you and other staff members now face manually adjusting stock and dealing with orders, and see how quickly the cost of M2E would make it worth while, I imagine it wouldn’t take too long.
