Add a Product is an interactive web-based interface used to list a
small number of products, one at a time. This tool is available within the
Inventory drop-down menu of your seller account. The Add a Product
tool can be used to:
Match to an existing product listing: If you have a product you want to sell
which already exists on Amazon, you must match to the existing product detail page.
Create a new product listing: If the product you want to sell does not exist on
Amazon, you can list a new product and Amazon will create a new product detail page.
If you have a Professional selling plan, and prefer to work with your product
listings offline, we recommend using an inventory template

Listing in multiple marketplaces
Whether you are matching to an existing product listing or creating a new one, you have the option to reach more Customers by making your listing available across multiple Amazon marketplaces during the listing process. Provide additional attributes such as price for each additional marketplace in the offer tab to create listings in those marketplaces in addition to the marketplace you have selected in the Seller Central header. Prices should be provided in the local marketplace currency, which is denoted in the price field. If a detail page doesn’t yet exist in those marketplaces, Amazon will attempt to automatically translate and create a page on your behalf. This process can take up to 48 hours to complete, and you will be able to suggest content changes in local language after completion.
Available marketplaces are determined by where you are registered, and for marketplaces outside of regions like Europe or North America, by your linked accounts. To find out more about listing policies for each marketplace, go to Amazon’s Category, Product and Content Restrictions.
