The Missing User Manuals for M2EPro

Howdy ,

For the past two weeks we’ve been working on the missing user manuals for M2EPro.

User Manuals for M2EPro and eBayThese aren’t the video tutorials that we have in Installing & Configuring M2EPro course, we mean the written manuals on how to setup and configure M2EPro.

As you already know we like to do things in “Plain English” here at UnderstandingE and have made 3 user manuals for setting up M2EPro for eBay.

These were created by the request from eBay and if you’ve found your way to UnderstandingE from eBay welcome!

The details for each of these M2EPro user guides are below and you can download all 3 of the M2EPro user guides at the bottom of this article.

The Getting Started with M2EPro User Guide

In this 53 page user guide you’ll learn everything you need to know to get started with M2EPro.

Each section of this guide includes step-by-step instructions with screenshots to get you up & running with M2EPro on eBay pronto.

Also to help you with each stage we’ve included tips from myself & Dave on any extra considerations. These might not be as detailed as what we have included in the video tutorials (see here), however where needed we have linked in external resources, such as specific video tutorials so you can find out more information as desired.

The Selling Variations on eBay with M2EPro User Guide

In this user guide you’ll learn how to set up M2EPro to sell variation products on to eBay.

Because each Magento installation is different, also includes are step-by-step instructions on how to create configurable products in Magento and then how to list these on to eBay.

This was the toughest guide of all 3 of them to get right because when it comes to the different labels eBay needs, the requirements change from category to category. Page 28 is dedicated exclusively to this point and I sincerely hope this makes sense to you.

In Summary – The Missing M2EPro User Manuals

If you’re already up and running with Magento & M2EPro then frankly speaking these guides won’t be much use to you. However if you’re brand new to M2EPro & eBay, these are going to help you loads!

All 3 of the user manuals for M2EPro were tricky to get right with the most troublesome of them all being the variations manual.

Unlike the video tutorials where you will have had a decent understanding of what variations are and how they work in Magento already. And most likely you will have existing knowledge of how variations and multi-variations work on eBay. This guide was specifically designed for someone who didn’t already have that knowledge.

If you find these 3 user manuals to M2EPro & eBay useful, do let let us know in the comments box below.

    As someone with only experience of basic Drupal using Turnkey Linux, faced with a friend desperate to streamline his on-line shop with Ebay selling, I’m putting myself through a crash course with the amazing experience you are providing.

    best regards
