Support » Plugin: WP-Lister Lite for Amazon » Adding ASIN to Woo Product

    Hi

    I had my Amazon Handmade account removed because “I didn’t qualified” all of my products are inactive and I’m removing them but I want to reuse the ASIN to upload the same products through my regular Seller Pro account. Is there a way to add the ASIN to the products in bulk via CSV with native Woo importer? I already have the ASINs through a listing report and my products CSV.

    Thanks in advance!

    Hello Andres.

    Thanks for reaching out today.

    You can use a compatible CSV plugin to upload the ASIN numbers in bulk. Then all you need to do is click the “Match All ASINs” button on the developer page of WP-Lister’s tools page. When you click that button, WP-Lister will check each listing for an ASIN, if an ASIN exists but the listing is not listed to Amazon, then WP-Lister will match the listing to the ASIN you provided.

    Kind regards,
    John

    Hi John

    Thanks for the quick response. So by doing this how will I assign a profile? I’ll try to explain myself better:

    1. I had an Amazon Handmade account and I used the template uploader to upload the Handmade category and create a profile with it.
    2. The products were sent to Amazon with said profile and an ASIN was assigned for each one, all of them simple products by the way.
    3. Amazon deactivated my Amazon Handmade account because they said “They don’t think my products are handmade” and therefore the products were deactivated but still on my account with an ASIN assigned.
    4. I want to reuse those ASINs to upload the same products via my Pro Seller Central account which is the same account that had available the Handmade account, I still have it and in good standing.
    5. I removed the products from Amazon, at least some of them, to make a test.
    6. Updated the products via CSV to add the ASIN which they used to have on Amazon Handmade.
    7. Now I need to resend this products to Amazon but with a different template and therefore a different profile because I need to upload them on the Seller Central account instead of the Handmade account.

    With this information, still the “Match all ASINs” is the best way to do it? Or should I just push them again with the new profile and they will use the ASIN I added via CSV?

    To summarize, all I want with this is to reuse the ASINs instead of creating new ones with the restriction We have to create a given number of ASINs per week.

    Thanks in advance!

    Hey Andres.

    If you created those listings on Amazon, and you deleted them, they may only be deleted from your seller account, they may still exist on Amazon’s catalog. If they do still exist on Amazon and the ASIN is still in tact, then you can follow my instructions from the previous email. If you want to simply match to the listing on Amazon, you don’t need a listing profile with a feed template assigned in WP-Lister. Only when listing new products to Amazon’s catalog that don’t already exist on Amazon require a listing profile with a category specific feed.

    But if you/Amazon deleted some listings from your Amazon account and the actual product pages were removed from Amazon, then the ASIN is likely gone as well and cannot be used anymore to match to the listing.

    Now, if you did want to be able to use a listing profile/feed template you could, but it must be either a listingloader feed template or an inventory loader feed template. Those are the 2 feed templates you can use for matched listings in WP-Lister. Most users only use them if they need to provide additional details like a different handling time instead of the default for example.

    And in that case, simply follow my instructions in my previous email. After they are listed to Amazon, you can use the “Change Profile” bulk action option on the “Listings” page of WP-Lister, then click “Apply” and select your listing profile you wish to assign to the listings.

    To summarize: if you want to use the existing ASINs and you want to match to them in bulk, you should follow my previous email, then you could follow the instructions in this email to assign a listing profile to those matched listings. But again, that is only necessary if you want to provide additional details.

    I would recommend importing these listings from Amazon to WC/WP-Lister with WP-Lister’s import feature, but you said that your handmade account of yours was removed by Amazon, so I doubt you would be able to use an inventory report method to import those listings now because of that.

    Kind regards,
    John

    Wow! Thank You so much for such a detailed explanation. I’ll go and read it slowly and will share my results here.

    Have a great day and be safe!

    I tried multiple options but unfortunately, it always tries to create a new ASIN, no matter if I try with the ones I removed and matched or with the ones still on Amazon but Inactive. Still, thanks for taking the time to give me a hand!

    Hey Andres.

    I think the best thing to do is open a ticket about this here: https://www.wplab.com/request-support/ and include a sample SKU to examine for you as well as a link to this forum thread.

    We then can have a look at this for you.

    Kind regards,
    John
