You’ve “Prepped” your items and now you have a pile of inventory that is ready to be listed. This is a simple process which you can use Amazon’s free listing functions to do or you can use a 3rd party pay service.
- “listing” your items for sale on Amazon
- pricing your items
- printing labels to apply to the product.
Work That Pile One Bite At A Time
It’s easy to get overwhelmed with the entire process… just take this step one piece of inventory at a time. If you have multiple’s of the same product… group those as a separate pile and work it as one process.
If you have a product that you already know is NOT on the Amazon website… you will need to create a new product page. Click on this link to learn how to create a new Product Page for that item.
If you have a product that DOES have a product page on Amazon – but is missing a picture… click on this lint to learn about taking GREAT pictures for Amazon HERE.
Note: Don’t get overly concerned that you need to remember all the “terms and acronyms” we throw around. In time these terms (FNSKU, ASIN, CCC.com, etc) will become a normal part of your vocabulary.
Note: Amazon offers an option where you don’t label your items and they become part of “stickerless, co-mingled inventory”. This means that your customer may not be sent YOUR particular item. They could be sent an item that some other seller sent in to Amazon. You would then have to trust that the other seller graded the item correctly and, honestly, sometimes they don’t. (ie. New is actually New – not kinda New with some dents, dings, scratches).
We do NOT recommend you choose “stickerless, co-mingled inventory” option.
There are many factors to look at when pricing items. Not everyone will use the same pricing methodology. Choose what works for you – you can always tweak prices anytime.
We have recorded a podcast about Pricing Your Items.
If you are like us and you are sending in a lot of “one-of” items then you’ll like this article: “Pricing ‘One-Of’ Items for Amazon FBA”
And you’ll want to learn about the “Magic 25” Price Point in this podcast.
You will need to label your items. Each item you list ends up with it’s own FNSKU that is unique to you and your item. That will print out on a label that needs to be affixed to the item – ideally over the UPC/barcode that the item came with.
