Amazon: international listings
A not so well-known feature of Amazon is the International listings option. This option is part of Amazons Global Selling feature and means that you can have one single source marketplace (for example Amazon.de) and all the offers are copied to all available Amazon's countries that are marked as target marketplaces. For this option to work, it is required that the products are known on all target marketplaces.
While this can be a very effective feature, enabling it accidentally could also have very unwanted effects. As all offers are directly copied from one Amazon country, you have no direct influence on the selection and its values (like the price and stock). This can be a problem if you sell products from a particular brand, but are only allowed to sell these products in specific countries.
Enabling or disabling International Listings
To enable or disable the International listings feature:
- On the Amazon 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.
On the Remove connection dialog box, click Remove connection.
To prevent unwanted and/or untracked offers on these Amazon countries, we recommend deleting all listing in the target marketplace. After that is done, contact ChannelEngine to do a full export of your offers so the marketplace offers between ChannelEngine and Amazon match again.
