Product description of configurable product

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

hope you are doing well.

I had a question regarding ebay description policy. Due to base price German legal rules for sellers, we cannot upload our configurable products as a variation listing to ebay. Ebay only displays the base price amount for simple products, not variational products.

The way simple products are linked with a configurable main product in magneto, we do not need to write single descriptions or upload images individually to simple products just for magento frontend. At times, however, we need to update descriptions and titles, which when we do for the configurable product, is enough for our magento frontend requirements. However, the simple products related to this configurable products are not updated, therefore we would need to do so for ebay listings manually which can be very time consuming, considering the number of simple products each configurable product contains.

We read it in the manual (https://docs.m2epro.com/display/eBayMagentoV6/Configurable+Product+Images+Upload) and were able to accomplish this for the product images and we would basically, therefore need to have to be able to have the same ease to upload product descriptions and other attributes too.

Could anyone please recommend a solution?

Cheers!
Heiko

Hi Heiko!

When you manage configurable products on eBay, you manage eBay items. What I mean is that you will update the description of the eBay Item on the whole, not the description of each variation individually. eBay sees a configurable product as one item and displays a single description for it on the item page. 

M2E will send the product description for your eBay item based on what you specify in the description block settings. If the synchronization rules are configured to revise the product changes automatically, the description can also be updated on the channel automatically without a need to trigger a manual update. But it is not the child product description, it is the general description of the item that buyers will see when they purchase it on eBay. 

You can send a custom description instead of the Magento product description. In the custom description, if needed, you can describe each product variation in detail. 

The images are a different case. You can send images from each child product to illustrate each variation of your configurable item.

How can I do it?

When i list configurable items, only 1 picture shown on ebay. It's a base image from configurable.

No child images are uploaded to ebay! Why???
