Listing products to Amazon

Creating A New Amazon Listing
OpenBay Pro > Manage Items

One of the great features of OpenBay Pro is the ability to list your website products to Amazon directly from your website, which you can do from the OpenBay Pro > Manage Items page.

Select the product you would like to list by clicking the Amazon button in the Markets column to open the new listing page.

Check out the following video tutorial to help you get started listing your website products to Amazon.

Listing an Existing Product on Amazon


Search for Product on Seller Central Account


  • Start off on your Amazon seller central account, and on the dashboard go to Inventory > Add a product.
  • Enter the product EAN/ ISBN/ ASIN or product name to search Amazon to find the product you are listing.
  • Click the sell yours button next to the listed product. Because this product has already been listed, most of the information will have already been input, and you will be unable to change it. This is because someone could add some new information to the listing that is incorrect and could damage the listing. But if you notice a mistake in the listing and you can prove that it is wrong, you must contact seller central to correct the error.
