2. Registering an Extension

Your M2E Pro must be associated with a valid Extension Key — a unique identifier of your installation.

Under the Extensions tab, you’ll find an automatically generated Extension Key for your Module installation. Copy the Key and paste it into your M2E Pro. Navigate to System > Configuration > M2E Pro > Billing Info (for Magento v.1.x.) or eBay\Amazon\Walmart > Configuration > Settings > License (for Magento v.2.x.). Press Use Another Key and paste your new Extension Key. Click Confirm to save the changes.

Please note, if you do a new installation of M2E Pro, the Extension Key will be created and associated with your M2E Pro Customer account automatically.

An Extension Key undergoes validation based on Domain name and IP addresses. This is done to prevent inconsistent access to your data. It also protects from the risk of the synchronization being performed from several instances simultaneously.

If you change your Magento location, you will need to obtain a new Extension Key under the Extensions tab, then copy and paste it into your M2E Pro. The old one should be deleted then.

Once M2E Pro detects an IP address that is not associated with your Extension Key, you’ll get a notification with the further instructions in your Customer account and via email.

3. Managing your Subscription

How M2E Pro pricing works

All new M2E Pro customers have a 30-day free trial period. To start your trial:

  • register your Customer account;
  • get an Extension Key;
  • complete the initial set-up of your Module.

Anytime during your trial period, you can create a Subscription.

M2E Pro provides pre-paid Subscription Plans. The pricing is based on sales (including shipment and taxes, but excluding refunds and Amazon FBA orders) from all of the associated Channel Accounts during a billing period. The billing period is set to 30 or 365 calendar days for the Monthly and Annual Plan accordingly.

You can choose a Monthly Subscription if your sales are always in a fixed range. The Annual Plan Allowance will cover the excess monthly sales during the year and relieve you of the additional monthly cost. By paying annually, you’ll get discounted pricing for the Plan of your choice. Read more about Subscription Plans on our website.

Please remember that all pricing and allowance limits are based on a merchant’s base currency.

The payment is taken automatically via the pre-registered payment method once the new billing period starts. You will be emailed an invoice after the payment is collected. You can also download the invoices under the History tab in your Customer account.

Customers whose total 30-day sales across all accounts do not exceed 1,000 (in their local currency) threshold, may subscribe to our free Starter Plan. Please note, if the contracted 1K limit (base currency) is exceeded, the service will be fully billed in accordance with the Small Plan rate.

How to create and manage Subscription

Go to the Subscription tab then click Subscribe. You will be guided through the several steps to confirm your Subscription details:

  • Review your Channel accounts that you want to cover by Subscription. You will be able to manage them anytime under the Accounts tab.
  • Select the currency for your account billing. The Sales Allowance and your Total Sales will be calculated based on the base currency. Choose your base currency carefully, it cannot be changed after the Subscription is activated.
  • Choose between Monthly and Annual billing for your Subscription and opt for the Allowance to cover your sales.
  • Add a preferred payment method for your account billing.
  • Provide email to receive invoices.

Once you complete all the steps, click Cpmplete. The Subscription will be automatically activated after your free trial ends.

You can change your Plan at any time. To do it, click Change Subscription Plan on the Subscription page. Subscription upgrade is applied immediately once the Plan Cost difference is paid. If you request a Plan downgrade, it will be reflected in the next billing period.

Please note that Subscription will be deactivated if the payment system is failed to collect the Service fee. To reactivate the Subscription, make sure a valid Payment Method is set in your Customer account, then click Activate under the Subscription tab. The Service will be automatically activated once the amount due is collected.
