How to ensure all product updates are caught by M2E Pro if you update Magento through 3rd party modules

M2E Pro works based on core Magento functionality. The Module identifies all of the product updates made through the Magento interface and synchronizes them on the Channels.

If 3rd party tools are used to update such information as Product Quantity, Price, status, etc. overriding standard Magento logic, then programmatic adjustments are required to ensure the product updates are caught by M2E Pro.

There are two programmatic methods to keep M2E Pro notified about all changes:

- Object method (model) observes the changes made in all Magento Product Attributes and informs M2E Pro about them.

- Structural method (model) tracks the changes only in the most crucial Magento Product Attributes, such as Price, Quantity, and Status. Then it notifies M2E Pro about these changes.

Find the code snippets and detailed instructions about programmatic adjustments methods in our documentation for M2E Pro on Magento 1 and M2E Pro on Magento 2.


If you use the Magmi import tool, we recommend applying M2E Pro plug-in on Magento 1 and Magento 2. It allows reflecting the product updates correctly.
