M2E Pro allows managing product data automatically with minimal actions from your side.
If you are new to M2E Pro, you can test it manually first. For this, we advise pausing the auto-sync settings so they do not affect your live listings and orders.
Disable automatic Magento order creation
Automatic import of Channel orders is the basic task of M2E Pro, it cannot be disabled. However, you can set the Module not to create Magento orders for them automatically.
For this, under eBay/Amazon/Walmart > Configuration > Accounts > Orders set Create order in Magento to No for both Products listed by M2E Pro and Products listed by any other software.
Disable automatic stock synchronization
Under eBay/Amazon/Walmart > Configuration > Synchronization, set Inventory Synchronization to No.
This way your Channel items will not be automatically updated according to the Synchronization Policy rules. You will be able to apply them to your items manually while testing.
Disable the import of existing Channel items
You can disable the automatic import of your existing Channel products if you do not need them in M2E Pro.
Under eBay/Amazon/Walmart > Configuration > Accounts > Unmanaged Listings, set Import Unmanaged Listings to No.
Now you can proceed with testing.
Test order processing
Prior to testing an order creation in M2E Pro, the item needs to be purchased on Channel.
Log in to eBay/Amazon/Walmart under another account to place the order or use your existing imported sales. You can find them under eBay/Amazon/Walmart > Sales in M2E Pro.
Inside the order, you can view the detailed info on it: billing and shipping addresses, logs, etc. Since automatic order creation was disabled, you can initiate Magento order creation manually by clicking Create order.
Test Listing management
You can create an M2E Pro Listing and add some test products under eBay/Amazon/Walmart > Listings > Add Listing.
When all is set for the Listing, you can try applying List, Relist, Revise, and Stop actions to products to test how they will update on the Channel:
- List Item(s) – use to submit a non-listed product to Channel.
- Revise Item(s) – use to fully update Listed product on Channel.
- Relist Item(s) – use to submit a previously Inactive product to Channel.
- Stop Item(s) on Channel – use to stop a product on Channel.
- Stop on Channel / Remove from Listing – use to stop a product on Channel and remove it from M2E Pro Listing.
When you are done with testing and ready to use M2E Pro, enable automatic Magento order creation under eBay/Amazon/Walmart > Configuration > Accounts > Orders and Inventory Synchronization under eBay/Amazon/Walmart > Configuration > Synchronization.
Also, for smooth automatic synchronization, check your Synchronization policies are configured correctly.
