Amazon: how to set the product type for products
About this article
This article describes how to set the product type per product for Amazon.
Most marketplaces only allow for one type of product identifier (usually the GTIN), but in the case of Amazon, multiple are allowed. In order to successfully create product offers on Amazon, it is important to map the correct Product ID type and Product ID value.
You can find these mappings in the Mappings, Offer mappings section of channel settings.
Product ID type
This is the type of the unique identifier for your product, that is, a GTIN. Possible types are EAN (European article number), ASIN (Amazon standard identification number), ISBN (international standard book number) and UPC (universal product code).
Product ID value
This is the actual value of the product id. E.g.: 8719802184482 (EAN), B076MTPDX6 (ASIN), 9781119249443 (ISBN).
It is no longer necessary to map the product identifier for the content mappings; the same identifier type and value that is set for the products in the offer mappings is now used for the content export.
