Manage your inventory proactively

Leaf Managing your inventory proactively is one of the smartest things you can do during the holidays.

  • Determine which of your products may be most popular during the holidays and make sure you have enough stock available.
  • Match your items by ISBN/UPC to the correct product detail pages. For example, if you list a book, your copy must be listed against the ASIN for the product with the exact same title, author, binding, edition, year of publication, publisher, and ISBN. Mis-matched listings can result in poor customer experiences which can lower your Customer Metrics.
  • Keep your listing details up to date. When you need to, use the tools in your Seller Account to edit the item description, item price, or the shipping methods you offer. Up-to-date listing details mean fewer potential order problems.
  • If you use inventory uploads, remember that all items in a feed must be processed before any of the changes appear on If you have time-sensitive changes, upload those first in a separate feed, and upload changes that are not time-sensitive in a later feed.
