3.4. Map Products
In case you have already exported products from your store to the eBay marketplace and just want to link them with the corresponding eBay items, choose [Map Products] on the welcome page.
Important! Please note that eBay limits the number of free monthly listings. Therefore, if you perform sample export from Store Manager to eBay we recommend you to do it with 1 product (or few products). Thus you will be able to test the addon and avoid exhausting your free seller limit.
Make sure, you have filled the fields on the initial step before starting, i.e.:
1. eBay site and currency you are going to attach in mapping.
2. The store language.
Please take into account, if you use Store Manager for Magento, in a certain field you can see the drop-down list with the relevant store views, as it is shown on the screen-capture above.
3. The store configuration.
You can see the map configuration options on the top of the left pane. Press [More...] to call the drop-down list with options to rename, remove, save and restore a configuration.
< - To create new configuration, use this button and specify configuration name.
4. Opposite the mapping configurations list there are the options that allow to upload or add account to perform current operation. The triangle option calls the drop-down menu with all previously registered and already used account names:
Add new user to an account list. Press [Register] and go through the registration steps to get an account, or fill the form (specify username and password) to login to the account that is the already registered but not added to the existing list yet.
The following message in green notifies of the successful connection and provides with the ability to proceed.
5. Take into account the "eBay Items Identification" pane shown below:
If you manage multi-store, use the option to create the "eBay_ID" field for each store view separately to arrange tables in the store database:
On the next step, there are store products listed in the table, which have to be mapped with eBay items. Mapping allows to link store products to the corresponding eBay items.
Opposite of each product name column there is the appropriate column with eBay item and its mapping status- relevance.
Specify the minimum relevance value in the upper field and click the necessary option on the top toolbar to start mapping automatically.
In this case, the plugin will find and upload the most suitable positions from eBay based on the value specified in the "Minimum Relevance Value" field. The column "Automap Relevance" on the right displays the measure of results compliance to the target, indicated in the search request. The smaller relevance value, the less products meet the expected results. You can change this manually by opening the drop-down list with the eBay items opposite the positions you need:
Press [Post changes] to save mapped data at the eBay store. Summary results will be available on the final page of the mapping process:
If the "eBay item" column is empty after mapping is completed, that means the products data of your store do not have analogs on the eBay market (were not previously exported) and you cannot perform the process to the end.
On the "Welcome" page of the addon you can preview all operations that were performed through the plugin previously.
Take into account the [Home] button at the bottom. It allows to return to the initial addon page to perform other operations without closing / opening the wizard.
