I am new to M2E Pro and need a bit of help.
Does it literally just connect up my Magento and Ebay store when I go through my Magento Go store with the option to also go in to Amazon and Play?
Because I am looking also for an Epos system to connect everything up, all our online and also our in store stock and sales. Can M2E Pro be used in this way or is there any extension I can get for it to do this for me?
As for an EPOS system this would be an additional extension. We have been talking to a fantastic company who should be releasing their EPOS extension this month and when it is Live we will be hearing from one of the founders directly to introduce what he has created.
Hope this helps

That’s brilliant, thank you for the information!
Okay that’s great, not too long to hear about that. One more question, if we were to move from Our Magento Go store over to Magento Community, is there a way I can bring over my existing products and work as it is? Or would I have to completely start from scratch?

To answer this question, you could export your products from Magento and then re-import them into your new Magento site. You would also need to transfer the images as well and it’s worth noting that all the product ID’s would be regenerated. As for sales orders, not sure.
Thank you Matt.
So I will be okay to carry on working with my products in Magento Go, making them how I want to before exporting and then re-importing them?
How do I go about transferring images over?
I shall check out the paid for services also.
I’ve not used Magento Go to any great degree as I’ve always preferred the self hosted version (Community Edition), however there will be the import & export tool from the system menu that you can use.
The downside to this is that yes you can use this to import the products into another Magento installation, but when it comes to the images it might geta little tricky as Magento uses paths on the server for the images, rather than the full image path to the image. There is a set of guides coming out tomorrow on how to import & export from Magento and you’ll meet Magmi, but there are differences between the files you use for Magento Dataflow and Magmi.
So frankly speaking, if you’re looking to move to the community edition, it’s probably better to create the products there rather than in Go.
There are a varietty of EPOS system available for magento, and Ive been looking into these a little as we may go down the route of having a physical presence to go along side our website etc.
Soem of the ones ive come across are
all of these have different costs, all do things in a different way and offer different feature sets.
I was very interested in easify as its a one of cost rather than a recurring monthly subscription, but tying it into magento requires buying the software plus server and then having a company write up some code to connect the server to magento. Easify quoted about £500 to do this.
