Looking for a quick start? Here are some step-by-step instructions on how to list in a Live batch.
Creating and Adding to a Batch
1. Check to make sure your completed shipments have been marked as "Shipped" in Seller Central.
For steps to check, click here.
2. Navigate to List > List & Prep page.
Click + New Batch.
3. Choose your batch options. A full explanation of each option can be found here.
You cannot use the Buy List options or list Merchant Fulfilled (MFN) items in a Live Batch. Selecting these options will change the Workflow Type of the batch to Private.
4. Click Create.
5. Your batch will display on the left-hand side of the page, underneath Open Batches. Now is the time to create a Custom MSKU if needed.
6. With your cursor in the search bar, scan a UPC or type in an item's ASIN, ISBN, title, UPC, keyword, or FNSKU of a previous MSKU to search for an item. You'll have the choice to search your Unlisted Inventory as well.
7. Choose Select once you locate your item. If the item is already in your Inventory, you will have the option to replenish an existing MSKU.
8. Fill in your item details and click Add to Batch. For details on what to add, see here.
9. Print Labels if needed.
