List Products on Amazon

After successfully connecting to your Main Store and sale channels, LitCommerce will automatically import your product lists to the central dashboard. In this guide, I will show you step-by-step instructions on how to list your products on Amazon.

How to list products on Amazon

1 - Select products

First of all, you need to create a new draft listing. Please look at the left sidebar menu and navigate to All products.

Now, simply tick the corresponding checkbox next to the products you want to list on Amazon. Click List products on a channel, then choose Amazon from the list.

You will be redirected to your new channel draft listings, along with a notification confirming that Draft listings were successfully created. You can continue to customize your listings to your liking before going live.

2 - Edit draft listings

LitCommerce allows you to use the Amazon templates and recipes to edit multiple listings at once:
Navigate from the left sidebar menu, go through the Listing section and find your Amazon channel.
Choose the templates you want to apply, then tick the checkboxes and click Apply a template.
If you want to edit your listings in Simple Mode, you can click on the listing title. An editing page will appear on the screen with 4 tabs including Product Identifiers, Vital Info, Pricing and Offer.

In case wanting to edit listings in Multi-edit Mode, you can use our Quick Grid feature, which is quicker and easier to use than manual editing.

Please keep in mind that, LitCommerce QuickGrid is only available for premium plans. Once you have access to this feature, you can edit listings in bulk to save you even more time and effort.

To save all your changes to the listing, look at the bottom right corner and click on one of the buttons below:
Save & Publish - Save and publish all your changes immediately on Amazon.
Save & Close - Your listing will be saved as a draft with all your changes.
Save Change - Save your changes but stay on the page to continue editing.
If you happen to save without publishing your change, you can still go live with all those changes later. Simply navigate to the Active tab on your Amazon listing page, select your listings then click Update to Amazon from Select Action.

3 - Publish listings

Once you have finished editing your listings, you can choose Active listing from the Select Action list to publish it on Amazon. Your listing will be transferred from the Draft tab to the Active tab correspondingly.

Note: With LitCommerce, you can also publish your listings inside the edit page once you’ve finished editing.

What is Amazon ASIN? How to get it?

There’s always an ASIN number and one product detail page for any single product sold on Amazon. By using ASIN, shoppers can easily find and navigate Amazon’s massive catalog. Furthermore, any duplicate items and their ASINs are eventually merged.

How to find an existing ASIN

Before selling any product on Amazon, check if an ASIN already appears for that product. If you see the ASIN number there, you can start selling by creating an offer under that ASIN.

Getting ASIN on Amazon is super easy, you can find an ASIN using the search box on the homepage or within the Add a product page of your Amazon Seller Central account.

You can search by product name, model, UPC or EAN. From the search results, click to the product’s detail page. You’ll find the ASIN from the product details section.

Also, you can find your ASIN right in the URL bar

These method above are great for a few products but if you want to find ASIN in a large number of product, a helpful tool is a ideal solution. Some of the third-party tools are available are: asintool, algopix, etc.

How to create a new ASIN

When Amazon’s catalog doesn’t contain your product, you’ll need to add it to get an ASIN.

Here are 2 common ways to create a new ASIN:

1 – Using Amazon’s admin panel

The very basic way to add products to Amazon is by using the Add a product in your Amazon Seller Central account. From here, you can add each piece of product information manually through Amazon’s web-based admin panel.

This is an excellent way to learn Amazon’s product addition process and data requirements. However, this is not an utmost way for adding a large number of products.
2 – Using Amazon inventory templates

Amazon file templates can be used to upload product data. First, you must collect a category-specific file template from Amazon. These can be found in the Add products via upload section of your Amazon Seller Central account.

After you’ve completed the file temple, you can upload it to Amazon. Amazon will review the file, create new products, and assign ASINs to them.

This method is excellent for quickly adding a large number of products. On the other hand, it requires Excel file knowledge and lacks automation.
