Unmanaged Listings


If you are an existing Amazon seller and want to manage your Channel inventory based on Magento data, you can use the Unmanaged Listings functionality. To import Unmanaged Items to M2E Pro, the corresponding option must be enabled in your Account configurations (Amazon Integration > Configuration > Accounts > Unmanaged Listings):

The Unmanaged Items from the different Amazon accounts/marketplaces will be stored in separate Listings.

You can Reset items from your Unmanaged Listings. It will take up to 24 hours to import them anew.

By opening a Listing, you can review the related Items: their title, SKU, ASIN/ISBN, current quantity, price, and status on the Channel.

You can manage items in bulk using the Actions menu: link/unlink the Items, move them to M2E Pro Listing, or remove them from the Unmanaged Listing. To do it, select the Items, then apply the required action:

  • Link Item(s) Automatically - allows automatically linking selected Items to Magento Products based on the linking settings.
  • Unlink Item(s) - allows unlinking selected Items from Magento Products.
  • Move Item(s) to Listing - allows moving selected linked Items to M2E Pro Listing.
  • Remove Item(s) - allows removing selected Items from the Unmanaged Listing.

Before M2E Pro starts managing your Unmanaged Items, you need to configure linking settings, link items to relevant Magento Products, then move them to M2E Pro Listing. Find the detailed instructions below.

Configuring Linking settings

In your Account configurations (Amazon Integration > Configuration > Accounts > Unmanaged Listings), you can set up product linking preferences.

Firstly, select Magento Store View that will be associated with the Marketplace set for the current Account. A related Store View, which you select, will serve as a source of the Magento Product data whenever you are linking the Unmanaged Item to Magento Product.

Then you may enable the Product Linking option if you want to link the Unmanaged Items to Magento Products automatically based on the SKU, ASIN/ISBN, or Title values during the initial import.
