Set up Magento Cron for M2E Pro

M2E Pro uses its own Cron Service that manages the synchronization process. Please, read more about data communication via the M2E Pro server and why the automatic synchronization is required.

However, if you want to set up Magento Cron to run M2E Pro Cron tasks, you should follow the instructions below.

  • For Magento v 1:

Command PHP:  php -q /%PATH_MAGENTO_ROOT_CATALOG%/cron.php -mdefault 1


Command GET:  GET http://%YOUR_DOMAIN%/cron.php

  • For Magento v 2:

crontab -u -e

* * * * * /bin/magento cron:run


It is strongly recommended to set up Cron to run every 1 minute (e.g. * * * * *). Please check this post (true for all versions).


If automatic synchronization still doesn't work, read this article for the solution.
