2.2. Map Products
In case you have already exported products from your store to the eBay marketplace and want to link (map) them with the corresponding eBay items, choose the command [Map Products] on the welcome plugin's page.
You have to specify the following:
- eBay site and currency, where your exported items are placed
- Your store's language
- Your store configuration. Opposite the current field there are options that allow you to edit selected settings name, add new configuration name or remove one from the existing list (see an illustration below).
You can save all operations performed by using the addon to a separate file. You'll be able to see saved operations in the drop-down list of the "eBay addon configuration" field.
Click the corresponding button to save them, and press the [Next] button to restore them to another location. This enables to use the same addon's settings on different machines.
To accelerate the process and to make sure all the data will be displayed correctly, click the [Clear Cached eBay Data] before starting.
Press the [Next] button to move to the following step - "eBay items Identification".
There are some requirements:
- The field should be separate to identify previously exported items
- It is recommended to leave selected field "ebay_id" by default.
Click [Next] to proceed.
On the next step there are store products listed in the table, which have to be mapped with eBay items. In front of each product name's column you can see the relevant column with eBay item and its mapping status.
Specify the minimum relevance value in the upper field and click the corresponding option from the top toolbar to start mapping automatically.
If the "eBay item" column is empty after mapping is completed, that means the products data of your store do not have analogs on eBay market (were not previously exported) and you cannot perform the process to the end.
If this column has related products, you have the opportunity to complete mapping by clicking the [Post Changes] button.
