The Manage Inventory page provides you with tools for searching, viewing, and updating your product and inventory listing information.
View your inventory
To view your inventory, go to the Inventory menu and select Manage Inventory.
To help you distinguish your inventory at a glance, additional information appears in the Product Name field for some categories.
Click any of the highlighted column headers to sort the product list by that column.
Select a filter above the list to filter products by Status or Fulfilled By, or select Additional filters for more options.
A blocked listing has one of the following indicators in the far left column:
Click the link next to the icon to learn more and to correct any problems with the listing.
Set your Manage Inventory page preferences
To customize your page view, click Preferences at the top of the Manage Inventory page.
You can personalize your page view in the following ways:
Note: "(Recommended)” indicates a default option.
Select which columns to show or hide. The values you select here are used together with search filters to customize the listing table's column display.
Select your default sort order from the drop-down menu.
Edit button location
Show the edit button on the left or right side of the page.
Show shipping charges in Price columns
This option is available only if you selected Item/Weight-Based shipping model on the Shipping Settings page.
If you want the lowest shipping charges to appear in the Your Price and Low Price columns, select Display shipping charges in your inventory’s Price columns. If you select this option, Match Low Price uses total price (item price + shipping) in the Low Price column for comparison.
If you select Do not display shipping charges in your inventory’s Price columns, matching is based on item price only.
Default filter option
Display the complete catalog by default or just active or inactive listings, and choose which fulfillment channels to show.
Number of results per page
Select the number of results you want to see on each page in Manage Inventory.
Low price comparison
See Match Low Price Match Low Price for more information about this feature.
Create a listing
Use the Add a Product feature to create a new listing by matching to an existing product detail page in the Amazon catalog. You can also create a new detail page for a product that doesn't yet exist in the catalog and then create a listing for that product. For more information, see Add one product at a time.
After you create a listing, use Manage Inventory to make changes to listing or product data.
Note: The product information you provide in your listing may differ from what you see on the Amazon product detail page. For listings with more than one seller, the information on the product detail page may reflect contributions from multiple sellers.
Copy a listing
The Copy Listing feature allows you to create a new product detail page using information from an existing listing.
For example, you have three different versions of the same toy. Each version has a different product identifier (UPC, EAN, or JAN), but otherwise shares the manufacturer, brand, general description, and audience (as shown in the table below). You can create a detail page for one of the product versions and then use the Copy Listing feature to quickly create pages for the other two versions.
To copy a listing:
Add images to your listings
You can provide one main image and one or more secondary images for each listing. To learn about using product images in your listings, see Prepare product images.
To upload product images:
You can repeat steps 5 and 6 as many times as there are image slots before clicking Upload image(s) (step 7). Images may take up to 24 hours to appear on a product detail page.
Edit a listing
In most cases, changes you make to product information appear on Amazon within 5 minutes. However, some updates can take up to 6 hours. Product descriptions longer than 500 characters are generally updated at 8:00 AM PST the following day. Images may take up to 24 hours to appear on a product detail page.
To edit details for an existing listing:
Set minimum and maximum price limits
To set price limits, you can add minimum and maximum price columns to your Manage Pricing or Manage Inventory view.
Close a listing
You can close a listing at any time, up until the time it is purchased. This action does not remove the record from your inventory. The SKU and all listing information for the item are retained. Additionally, a listing can be re-listed (or reactivated) at any time. There is no fee associated with closing a listing.
Your listing should appear as Inactive within 24 hours.
Note: This will close your listing automatically, without confirmation.
Product prices are indicated in the Price column on the Manage Inventory page. The shipping charge is displayed in Price for active listings only. Shipping indicates the lowest shipping charge available for a product, based on your shipping settings. When you sort by the Price column, the shipping charge is not taken into account.
The Manage Pricing page allows you to update prices on any active listings, either one by one or in batches. It includes columns most commonly used for making price updates, but you can change the columns you want to see by clicking Preferences.
If you have listings that are deactivated because of potential pricing errors, you can confirm and update your prices by clicking Price Alerts and entering maximum and minimum limits for each deactivated listing.
Delete a product
When you delete a listing, the SKU and all sales history and product information are permanently removed from your seller account. Therefore, you should delete a SKU and its listing information only if you are never going to sell that product in the future.
Note: After you delete a SKU from your inventory, it may take up to 24 hours before that SKU is available for reuse.
