How to Map Matching Products with M2E Pro
Mapping matched Amazon and Magento products in M2E Pro offers a great deal of benefits.
Aside from being able to speedily update your products on Amazon from within your Magento system, you can also control their prices, stocks and even list them on eBay or other marketplaces.
In this tutorial, you will learn how to map matched products in M2E Pro.
You may have over a hundred products on Amazon that match your products in Magento, and which are ready for mapping.
However, this tutorial will make use of one product to explain the process step-by-step. If you can make it work for one product, you can do it for ten or even ten thousand products.
Step 1. Map Products on Your Amazon Listings
In your Magento system, go to Amazon in the top menu, click on Manage Listings, followed by 3rd Party Listings.
This section shows your active listings on Amazon which haven’t been mapped onto your products in Magento yet.
In the Actions menu on the right-hand side, choose Map Item(s) Automatically from the drop-down options, and then press the Submit button.
Click OK in the pop-up box that instructs you to select items to map.
Press the Select All link on the left-hand side, and then press the Submit button on the right-hand side.
Press the OK button in the pop-up box to confirm your action.
All items that come with a Product ID – the number in the second column from the left – have a match in Magento already.
Step 2. Filter Products to Map
Because M2E Pro doesn’t have the ability to filter products in your Amazon listings that have been matched, you will have to filter them manually.
The easy way to do it is to fill the From box in the Product ID column with 0, and then enter a bigger number in the To box.
Next, click on the Search button in the top right-hand corner.
Once you have generated all the items that have product IDs, press the Select All link on the left-hand side.
In this case, the Mens Boots in size UK 7 turned out to be the only item with a product ID –hence the only product with a match in Magento.
Tick this product on the left-hand side, select Move Item(s) to Listing from the Actions menu, and then press the Submit button.
Click on OK in the pop-up box, and then choose which of the listing groups in the new window you would want to move the product to.
To move it to Amazon Existing Listings – Simple Products, click on the Move to This Listing link next to this listing group.
Once you’re finished, press OK in the pop-up box to confirm your action.
When you press the Reset Filter button in the top right-hand side, you shall see items that aren’t in your Magento system yet.
Step 3. View the Listed Item to Map
Go to Amazon in the top menu, click on Manage Listings, and then click on Listings.
Notice that the Total Items column shows the number 1 for the listing group, Amazon Existing Listings – Simple Products. That’s because this listing group has one product in it.
Click on the number to see the listed item which you can now manage on Amazon from within your Magento system.
If, for example, you want to change its price, or add a sale price to it, click on the Catalog menu, and then click on Manage Products, followed by Boots-Navy-7.
On the left-hand side, click on the Amazon tab, and then enter a value in the field for the Amazon Sale Price.
Press Save in the top right-hand side, and then wait for the new price to reflect on this listed item’s Price column in M2E Pro.
Apart from the wealth of benefits that you can get from mapping matched products in M2E Pro, this tutorial showed you the actual steps on how to map these products.
