Amazon: international listings
About this article
This article describes how to use the international listing feature on Amazon.
A little-known feature of Amazon is International listings. This is part of Amazon Global Selling, meaning that you can have one single source marketplace (for example Amazon.de) and all of your offers are copied to all available Amazon countries that you select as target marketplaces. For this option to work, it the products must be known on all target marketplaces.
While this can be a very effective feature, enabling it accidentally could also have some unwanted effects. Because all offers are directly copied from a single Amazon country, you have no direct influence on the selection and its values (such as price and stock). This can be a problem if you sell products from a particular brand, but you are only allowed to sell these products in specific countries.
Enabling or disabling International Listings
To enable or disable the International listings feature:
- On Amazon's Seller Central main dashboard, click Manage International Listings. Alternatively, navigate to Inventory, Sell Globally.
- On the Sell globally dashboard, click Build International Listings
- In the Build international listings overview, you can see the source and target marketplace on the left-hand side. If there are target marketplaces visible, chances are high that offers from the source marketplace are currently active on the target marketplaces.
- To remove existing connections, click Remove connection. Click the Remove connection
To prevent unwanted and/or untracked offers on these Amazon countries, ChannelEngine recommends deleting all listings in the target marketplace. After this is done, contact ChannelEngine to perform a full export of your offers so the marketplace offers between ChannelEngine and Amazon match again.
