Can't create eBay orders 'immediately'

Selling on eBay, we utilize the ‘best offer’ feature widely. This means that despite requiring immediate payment on all items, we do instances when offers are accepted and we have to wait for checkout/payment.

Because of this, we’re going to need to use the setting ‘create orders: immediately’ in order to ensure that stock is allocated and we don’t sell out whilst waiting for an accepted offer to be paid up.

However, having set this option in M2E, unpaid orders are not being imported and the logs report: “Magento Order was not created. Reason: Please fill all required fields with valid information.”

It would seem to me that this must be because there is no confirmed shipping address available until payment has been made, therefore it’s logical. However I can’t then understand why the option is there if it’s unusable.

Any thoughts/help on this would be appreciated.
