Sales Channels by M2E Cloud makes it easy to integrate your Ecwid store with Amazon, eBay, and Walmart marketplaces. Control and manage your sales data from all Channels within your Ecwid admin panel. Follow the steps below to set up the M2E Sales Channels app in your Ecwid admin.
Step 1. Install the app. Step 2. Connect Channel accounts.Step 3. Create policiesStep 4. Define order preferencesStep 5. Set up inventory synchronization
Start by installing the M2E Sales Channels app from the Ecwid app store. For that, open the link to the page and click Get.
You’ll be redirected to your Ecwid admin panel. Confirm that you want to Install the app by clicking on the button.
You’ll be taken directly to the M2E Sales Channels account setup once the app is installed.
M2E Sales Channels automatically connects your Ecwid store account and sets it as a Primary Data Source, so you only need to link your eBay, Amazon, or Walmart seller accounts. Click Next and hit the Connect button next to the Channel account you want to link. You only need to grant M2E Sales Channels access to your account information, and that’s it.
Once done, move forward.
Now, you need to set default policies, which are settings necessary for listing and selling your items on eBay, Amazon, and Walmart.
For eBay, you have Shipping, Return, Description, Selling, and Synchronization Policy. For Amazon, you’ve got Sync, Selling, and Shipping Templates, as well as the Selling Policy for Walmart.
Selling Policy allows you to configure custom prices or change rules for your Channel price and provide QTY settings. Under Synchronization Policy, you can select which data should be synced with Channels.
Shipping Policy lets you specify available shipping methods and types. With Return Policy, you can set conditions for providing returns.
Use Description Policy to configure title/product descriptions through predefined description templates.
M2E Sales Channels assigns these policies to your items by default, but you can always customize them or create more policies with different settings.
Double-check the policies you’ve set, and proceed to the next step once you’re satisfied with the settings.
M2E Sales Channels imports orders from each connected Channel account, so you can manage and ship them all from one place.
Also, you can set the app to create an order in your Ecwid store once the customer places an order on eBay, Amazon, or Walmart. For that, enable the “Create Orders in Ecwid” option.
If you want the app to create orders only for items that will be further managed by M2E Sales Channels, make sure to enable the corresponding option.
If you’ve connected an Amazon account with FBA inventory, you can enable the order creation for these products as well.
M2E Sales Channels imports and links your products from Ecwid and Channels by SKU or barcode. Click “Enable Sync for Linked Items” to turn on the synchronization for products that you sell both in your store and on eBay, Amazon, and Walmart.
This action ensures that your inventory stays updated across platforms.
If you need time, you can proceed to the app by clicking “I’ll Do It Later”, and turn on the synchronization afterwards.
If you have no listings on your Channels yet, click on the “List New Items” button to list the products from your Ecwid store directly to eBay and Amazon.
