Add Products to Amazon Seller Central

When you’re adding products to your catalog in Seller Central, there are a few different factors to consider. There are a few factors to consider when adding items to your Amazon store, such as how many items you want to add at one time, what categories they belong to, and whether these items already exist on Amazon. There are two options you can choose from:

  • Add items one at a time in Seller Central
  • Add items in bulk by using the Amazon new item setup (NIS) sheet and the NIS Excel template

Adding items one at a time

1. Listing items already sold on Amazon

If you want to sell an item that already exists on Amazon, you will be taken to a page where you can choose to either ‘Create a new listing’ or ‘Sell this product’ against the existing product page. First, you will need to clarify the product condition (new, collectible, used). Then, you will input some basic information before you can push your listing life.

The usual key considerations are:

    • SKU Number
    • Product condition (New/Used/Collectable)
    • Product Price
    • Fulfillment method (FBA/ MFN)
    • Once all the fields are completed, click ‘save’ and your listing will be published.

2. List Products NOT currently in Amazon’s Catalogue: 

From the ‘Catalogue’ column, select ‘Add Products’

Choose ‘I’m adding a product not sold on Amazon’

Select the most relevant product category in a search bar

#Tip: The best way to find potential product categories is to look at your competitors on Amazon and see what categories they are selling in. This can give you some ideas of what a good fit for your product might be.

Enter the product id (mostly UPC barcode)/ select UPC from the drop-down menu. If the product has multiple variations, enter the UPC in the variations tab instead.

Next, under the product name, enter your title and brand name. If you’re doing a private label, the manufacturer will be the same as your brand name.

Make sure to complete all the required information (highlighted in red) before moving on to the next tab. Be careful not to miss anything!

#Tip: The more information Amazon has about your product, the more likely it is to rank organically in search results.

To proceed, for the new condition products, first, input your product IDs and choose UPCs from the dropdown menu. Then, enter your product price and save the listing to display it under ‘manage inventory’. Your listing will become ‘active’ once you send the inventory to Amazon.
