What to do first ?

I’m not sure I’m in the correct category but my question is Magento related.
Having not long registered on the understandingE site I am just starting to work my way through some of the guides…..and it has got my brain in a little tizz. I want to update my Magento shop as the template I am using is dated and I was wondering what to do first?

Would I be better off updating the Magento template to a new format/look, then follow the guides?
Do I go ahead with the guides, add the extensions for eg M2EPro, then update my magento shop?

Can you help me with my query?

I learn something new every day

Hey mbtink

From what I understand these two areas are unrelated so it shouldn’t matter which order you decide to take these steps.

We do have some guides coming shortly on themeing the Magento website but truthfully they dont really overlap with the multi channel M2E guides too much. The only thing that remains connected is the inventory and order management, which wont interfere with a design change.

So from where I see it, I don’t think it will matter which order you do them, or if you ran them side by side.

Does that help at all?

Actually I’m going to suggest a different approach in my reply.

Which will make you more money more quickly? Is it getting eBay integrated or the website being designed?

Then go with that one first :)
