Home Base Field Setup
Control which fields are displayed on your Single List Page (SLP) with your selections in this section and build your listing page to suit your needs.
There is no right or wrong combination, just what works best for you and your business. Feel free to experiment – you can always add or delete anything at anytime.
If you are an FBA Enabled account you can set a default for the FBA setting
Approved by Amazon to sell Collectible? Select this setting:
it adds drop downs populated with Amazon's approved values below the Edition, Jacket and Signature fields on your listing page. Note: that Edition is a default field, meaning you do not need to turn it on to see it on your listing page, but the other two need to be individually enabled to see them and the subsequent drop down menus.
The Notes field can be adjusted directly on the listing page to suit your needs – 4 high X 40 wide is a good place to start. Your can always increase or decrease the size if needed by clicking on the corner and dragging.
- For notes you use a lot in your listing practice and to make listing quicker and more consistent:
- Simply enter an ID for your note and the text you would like to use in the fields provided.
- The ID you assign should be 8 characters or less, unique, and contain no spaces or special characters.
Once you have a few Clicky Notes set up you'll see this section similar to the following:
When you have some Clickey Notes set up, they will show just to the left of your notes box on your Single List page. Just click on the ID to paste in the note.
- You can use the Clickey Notes with the Private Fields as well.
- To use these in your Private Fields, use the following format for the ID: '_p_<note_id>'.
- For example, to assign the note 'nt3' to be used with Private Field 2, you would use the ID '_p2_nt3'.
- Strange, yes, but handy if you use the Private Fields a lot.
Enter text about the condition to create a drop-down box on the single list page.
- Similar to the Clicky Notes as they allow for quicker population of the single list page with the slight difference of having a drop down menu created instead of a quick ID to click.
- These free-form conditions are sent to Venues either in place of the Condition or appended to your Notes (ex: Amazon).
- Enter one condition text item per line in the field provided.
- The Do Not List Defaults will automatically set the do not list flags for you on the single list page, per venue, for each venue that you select in these default settings.
- Note: You need not set these for venues where you are not selling.
- Select the Shipping options you want to offer and they will automatically appear on your Single List Page as you creating your listings.
Minimum/Maximum Price: will allow you to create set parameters to be applied to your price adjustments to Amazon. You can set these up per item on the listing page directly, or use the default settings
- You can select between percent (%) or dollar ($) values in the drop down menu.
- A Percent (%) setting uses the original listing price as the trigger for the min/max setting for all future repricing activity.
- Note: If values are supplied directly on the listing page, those values will override the default values set up here.
Shipping Templates: will allow you to create a list of the shipping templates you're using on Amazon so that you can easily match items to the template you wish to use. Note:If you have entered template names to your inventory using a file that you've uploaded and those template names are not yet entered to this list, check the box next to Populate list from inventory and save the page to pull those template names onto this list.
The following two fields are remnants of Amazon's Zshops and are no longer used for their intended purpose. Read on for how to use these fields going forward.
- Amazon Categories: The Amazon Category is a numeric category code that was used by Amazon, but is no longer in use. This field is kept for legacy purposes. We do nothing with this field, but as some sellers had used the field to store data we've left it on the listing page.
- Amazon Browse Paths is used by AOB to store data that will assist you in creating Categories on various venues. It's free-form and typically comma separated.
Check the box next to 'Populate list from Inventory' and AoB will scan your existing inventory to create a list for you.
Here you will find defaults to select a specific listing duration for eBay listing as you are entering inventory on the Single List page
- If you are uploading your inventory please use the headers and values as outlined in Approved Headers and Character Lengths.
- Check the box and save the page to enable eBay's Item Specific fields on your single list page.
eBay's own documentation found at http://pages.ebay.com/sellerinformation/build-your-business-online/grow-your-sales/seo-unique-identifiers.html which we feel is quite comprehensive giving quick access to various points regarding this topic.
