How to Edit Amazon Listing [6-Step Guide]

Did you run out of products in stock or add some cool features to your product? You can let your customers know by adding these details to your Amazon listing. 

This guide will show you how to do so and make other changes to your listings in just six steps.

However, this process is most suitable for editing one or just a few Amazon listings at a time. If you want to make bulk updates, we recommend uploading a new inventory file to Amazon Inventory Loader or using a tool like FlatFilePro instead.

Why edit Amazon listings?

There are many reasons why you’d want to edit your Amazon listings. You may want to:

  • Add new information: Accurate and complete information on your Amazon listing will help you attract new customers and keep customer satisfaction high. You may need to update your listings often to keep your listings on-point.
  • Change your keywords: If customers struggle to find you on Amazon or your products get fewer views than you’d like, it might be time to change your keywords.
  • Add new images: Showcasing your products in the best possible light (quite literally) is essential for drawing in customers. Uploading higher-quality images is always a good idea. 
  • Edit existing descriptions and details: Maybe you came up with a better way to describe just how awesome your product is, or perhaps you need to change its condition from “New” to “Used.” Either way, following the steps below will allow you to edit all these details.
  • Add variations to an existing listing: You may want to create parent/child relationships between similar products, such as the same model of t-shirts in different sizes and colors.  
  • Add new listings: Selling something new? Though this isn’t the same as editing a listing, you can follow the guide below for adding new listings, too. 
  • Delete existing listings: Again, deleting your listings isn’t really editing them, but you can do this by following the steps below as well.

Now that you understand what you can do by editing your Amazon listings, let’s learn how it’s done.

What To Keep In Mind When Editing Your Amazon Listing

Amazon lets you edit any part of your listing except for the product ID. Product ID can’t be changed. If you want a new one, you’ll need to create a new listing for your product.

Also, note that you should avoid creating duplicate listings. Duplicate listings can occur if you accidentally create a new listing for an existing product or for a product similar to an item you already listed. 

Duplicate listings can confuse your customers, decrease your sales, and lower the visibility of your products.

If you sell a lot of products, try to check your existing listings before creating new ones. You may find a listing similar to the one you want to create, such as the same model of shoes but in a different size or color. In that case, you can edit the existing listing or add variations to it, like shoes in different colors. 

If you do accidentally create a duplicate listing, you can contact Amazon and request that they merge the listings. 

How to Edit Amazon Listing In 6 Steps

1. Log in to your Amazon seller central account

First, log in to your Amazon Seller Central account using your usual login details. This should take you straight to the main seller dashboard.

2. Open Your Inventory

On the main dashboard, there’s a category called “Inventory” in the main tab. Hover your mouse over it, then click “Manage Inventory:”

This will open the inventory tab, where you’ll be able to see all your listings (both active and inactive). 

3. Identify The Listings You Want To Edit

In the inventory tab, you can:

  • Search for specific products by typing in their SKUs, titles, ISBNs, or ASNs in the search feature,
  • Review your entire inventory by scrolling down,
  • Filter your listings by status (active or inactive) and fulfillment (by Amazon or Merchant), or
  • Organize your listings according to specific information, like the creation date or availability.

The method you’ll choose here depends on which and how many products you plan to edit.

4. Select The Listing You Want To Edit

Once you find the listing you want to edit, click the “Edit” button in line with the title of the listing:

This will open a new page with all the information related to your listing.

5. Select The Part Of The Listing You Want To Edit

You can click one of four tabs to edit different parts of your listings :

Here’s what each tab contains:

  • Vital info – the most important info linked to a particular listing, such as product ID, product name, manufacturer, etc.
  • Variations – parent-child relationships between similar products, such as the same t-shirt models that vary in color or size.
  • Offer – set listing features like price, category, and quantity. 
  • Images – The primary and secondary images used in a listing.

You can open more tabs by toggling the “Advanced View” slider to the right:

Choose the part of your listing you want to edit and make the desired changes.

6. Save Your Changes

When you’re done making changes, click “Save and finish” at the bottom of the page. 

Now you’ve officially edited your Amazon listing! Let’s see what happens next.

What Happens After You Edit Listings

If you’ve edited your listings successfully, you’ll see a green callout message box on a new page confirming that you submitted your updates. The changes should become visible on your public product listing in approximately 15 minutes.

Can You Edit An Amazon Listing If You’re Not The Brand Owner? 

If you’re a wholesale seller, you may be selling products owned by other brands. In that case, it’s likely that another seller controls the listing and is in charge of editing it (unless you’re the one who created it). 

The only way to request changes is to contact the seller in charge of the listings or to contact Amazon directly: 

  • Work out a deal with the brand owner – Try convincing another seller to let you edit the listings or to at least make the changes you suggest themselves. 
  • Contact Amazon Seller services from your seller central account – Report a “Product Page Issue” through Amazon’s contact form and use ASIN to find the product listing(s) you want to edit. Choose which feature you want to modify, like “Quantity,” and describe the changes you want to make. Amazon will review your request and decide if they should apply the suggested changes.

Ready To Edit Your First Amazon Listing? 

Keeping your listings up-to-date will help your online business thrive on Amazon. It will help you draw in new buyers while keeping customer satisfaction high.

However, the process we described here may not be the best option if you need to frequently update your listings or sell many different products. 
In that case, we recommend using a tool like FlatFilePro that lets you bulk edit your listings and correct mistakes without submitting time-consuming cases or appeals. Because who has time for those, anyway?
