Hi Guys / Girls
Been going through the site with interest and also in the middle of house moving. As we have gone through the house to de-clutter I found I have nearly 500 items that I could sell on eBay. So you know where this is going it just hit me.
Spreadsheet>CSV File> Magmi>Magento >M2E Pro upload to personal eBay site.

Having worked out how to speed up my Excel sheet inputting to my basic knowledge and the help of others see here

A few questions what is the fields I need to set in my spreadsheet for
• Auction Price
• Reserved Price
Also to help SEO junkies can you get Magmi to rename the images on the way in. i know you can but need help on this please Matt 
So SKU = TroPre
Title = Corby H1234 Trouser Press
Image TroPre1.jpg;TroPre2.jpg
Magmi converts it to Corby H1234 Trouser Press.jpg
Sure I have a few more questions floating round my head but hopefully this helps a few of you guys who use this.

Hi Dale,

See the video below & the tutorial here https://understandinge.com/tutorial/imp-0011/ for the Magmi renaming functions.

Does that help you?

HI Matt

Firstly cheers for video done the attributes and the import is working partially only one quirks.

Magento will not accept the file as Price is a compulsory field! So do i edit the permissions or just add the same as starting price?

Hi Dale,

Just set the price to 0.00 in the import.

And if you wanted either of the new prices to be required, set the attribute as “Values Required” = “Yes” and it comes out like this:
