List Single Item

You can efficiently do all your listing here. The fields allow for manual data entry, as well as entering the ISBN and populating listing details from the data base you selected for your Market Data. The page is split into three sections as follows:

  • Item Detail (blue): This section displays the Image, Title, Author(s), Publisher (or Label for Audio), Publication Date (or Release Date for Audio), Media, Volume and Edition. Keywords, the field at the bottom of this section will not auto populate, however, you can manually enter text to this field for use in creating browse paths and categories on venues other than Amazon.
  • Listing Entry (gray): This section is where you will enter the details specific to your item. The fields that are viewed in this section are greatly dependent on what you have enabled in your Single List Settings page. By default you will have a field for ISBN/ASIN/UPC, SKU, Condition and Core Price. But, you can add a variety of other fields such as Condition Text, Venue Specific Price fields, or your 'do not list' section.
Start by entering the ISBN, ASIN, or UPC code in the topmost field and click the "Populate Product Data". This will poll the database if you are Active there, or the AOB Cache and populate the fields for which information is available
Next, enter a SKU, condition, notes, price, and any other fields you have selected to use.
Enter the notes you want sent to your venues.
If you have setup any Clickey Notes, the IDs will appear just under the Notes label. Simply hover over the Note ID and the note will display in an info box. Click the Note ID and that note will be added to the Notes text block.
Check the listing details entered to insure that the item you are listing is exactly the same as the info that populated when you entered the ISBN/ASIN/UPC. Sometimes you will find that even though an ISBN is correct, the binding you have is different from the binding associated with that ISBN.
  • Pricing (green): When you click “Populate Product Data”, this block will show a sampling of current market prices. Prices are grouped in buckets. Buckets are comprised of items having the same Condition, Feedback rating, FBA/Merchant and whether it ships Domestically. Click on a price and that price, minus $.01, will be entered into the Core Price block. Hover over a price to display a variety of pricing data:
    • Listings Considered: will be followed by a variable number that represents the number of listings in the bucket mentioned above.
    • Multiple at lowest: with either a True, or False value.
If True, the price displayed represents more than one listing.
If False, than there's only one listing at the actual price displayed, regardless of how many are in the bucket.
    • Shipping: will show the shipping amount.
    • Total: will show you the lowest price in that specific bucket + shipping.
    • Ships in: is the time it takes to get the package out for shipping.
    • Ships Domestically: will have a value of true,false, or unknown.
This will indicate whether the seller is from the US, or not.
    • Feeback: displays a percentage (%) and a (parenthesized) number. The listings in the bucket all fall within the % range displayed and the (number) represents the feedback count of the seller who's price is displayed

Under the Sales Rank you'll now see two low prices…

Low Price: is the lowest when only the price is considered.
Low Total: is the lowest when price and shipping are both considered.
  • Price Highlighting...
FBA price is Pink – whether, or not, you have enabled FBA here on AOB you will see Amazon's FBA items
Seller price is Purple – highlighting will depend on if it happens to be the one displayed in the Buy Boxes on Amazon.
Amazon's price is Green.

When you are satisfied with your listing, click Create Listing. This will save the item information on our severs for the next processing pass and display a blue box at the top of the page telling you what you just listed.

If you got to this page through the Inventory List and want to edit your item, just make whatever changes you would like and click "Update Listing". This will update our database to reflect the changes.

Single List Page FAQ:

  • I keep getting "This page contains both secure and non-secure items - do you want to display the non-secure items" when I use the listing page. How can I stop that from happening? This is a setting on your Internet browser. If you are using Internet Explorer go to Tools > Internet options > Security > Click the Custom Levels button > Display mixed content > Enable > OK.
  • What is the Core Price? Your price unless overridden by a % increase in your listing constraints or a venue specific price you set differently.
  • If I put in a core price are you saying I don't need to enter that price again in the Amazon and Half boxes if that is the price I want the item to have on those two venues (those are my only active venues). You don't need to enter venue specific prices unless you want prices on those venues to be different from the core price.
  • What does it mean to make a field sticky? Ever notice that when you are listing an item and click the Create Listing button all the fields clear? What if you are listing a stack of books with the same condition or notes? Well, that's what the sticky boxes are for. When you check that box during listing and then use the Create Listing button the fields next to what ever boxes you checked will not clear until you leave the SLP. This is true for any field that does not get populated with Amazon's Market Data. For example the Image field will be populated with Amazon's image, if one exists, and will override the Sticky image.
  • Where do you get the pricing data from? We get it from Amazon. Sometimes you will notice that an item does not populate even though it is listed on Amazon. That is because Amazon has not given us information on that specific item. This does not happen often but we do see it.
