When selling vehicle details on eBay, you can take advantage of the Parts Compatibility feature. It allows listing parts and accessories in relation to compatible vehicles. eBay Parts Compatibility helps drive your sales and simplifies the search process for buyers needing specific parts.

eBay Product ID or ePID is one of the types of vehicle numbers that you can use to specify Parts Compatibility information for your M2E Pro Listings on eBay Motors, United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, and Australia marketplaces.

Follow the instructions below to add ePIDs of compatible vehicles to your Products in M2E Pro.

Step 1. Update the Marketplaces

Get the most up-to-date Parts Compatibility list by updating eBay Marketplaces. To do it, go to eBay Integration > Configuration > Marketplaces and click Update Now or Update All Now for all marketplaces at once:
