Each M2E Pro Listing has its global settings. They are determined by data from Magento Attributes of the Products within the Listing. To customize these settings before listing Products on eBay, use M2E Pro Policies.
An M2E Pro Listing is a custom list of products you choose to sell under the same settings.
An M2E Pro Policy is a template with settings necessary for listing and selling products on the Channel.
Once you select a Policy for your Listing, its settings are automatically assigned to all the Products in the Listing.
If you make any changes in the Policy, they will be applied to all M2E Pro Listings (as well as the included Products) where this Policy is used.
When configuring Policy settings, you can choose either a Magento Attribute or a Custom Value as a source of Product data.
The use of Magento Attributes gives you greater flexibility for managing Policy settings. An Attribute allows you to set a different value for all your Products. Thus, the values of a Magento Attribute used in your M2E Pro Policy will be unique for each Product that uses this Policy.
Choosing a Custom Value as a source of Product data may be helpful in some cases. But, unlike a Magento Attribute, if you specify any custom value in the Policy settings, it will be the same for all Products listed under this Policy.
Here is how the Magento Attributes and Custom Value options look on the M2E Pro Policy creation/editing page:
M2E Pro will list Products with those particular settings defined in your Policies. But if you need to make any changes, the Module allows you to edit the Policy and revise the Products either automatically using Revise Conditions, or manually.
To edit the assigned Policy or select another one for the entire Listing, click Edit Settings at the top of the Listing page.
Generally, the Policies used in your Listing apply to all the Products within it. Yet, there are a few exceptions in each integration.
As for eBay, M2E Pro allows specifying custom Policy settings for the Products in the Listing. In this case, custom Policy settings are submitted to eBay during the product listing process. The global Listing settings won’t be used – M2E Pro will replace them with custom ones.
To provide custom eBay Policy settings, switch to the Settings View Mode within the Listing. Then use the mass or individual actions menu to customize the Policy settings for your Products.
See how it works with a custom eBay Payment Policy as an example:
Amazon & Walmart
The majority of Policies for both Amazon and Walmart are configured for the entire Listing only (except for Amazon Description and Walmart Category Policies that are assigned per Product).
