I have set my ebay store categories in: ebay > add shop category, but when I try and set my ebay categories in M2EPro the only option under the ebay store category drop down is ‘other’.

How do I get my categories to show?

In M2E Pro when you are listing and the box appears for the item categories and the store categories, you click on “change” in the store categories, a pop up should appear asking if you would like to refresh your ebay store categories. Choose yes and your categories should be available to choose from.

Thanks Mike. It does appear to be a matter of syncing as the options have now appeared without me taking any further action.
