What is Amazon ASIN? How to get it? #
There’s always an ASIN number and one product detail page for any single product sold on Amazon. By using ASIN, shoppers can easily find and navigate Amazon’s massive catalog. Furthermore, any duplicate items and their ASINs are eventually merged.
How to find an existing ASIN #
Before selling any product on Amazon, check if an ASIN already appears for that product. If you see the ASIN number there, you can start selling by creating an offer under that ASIN.
Getting ASIN on Amazon is super easy, you can find an ASIN using the search box on the homepage or within the Add a product page of your Amazon Seller Central account.
You can search by product name, model, UPC or EAN. From the search results, click to the product’s detail page. You’ll find the ASIN from the product details section.
Also, you can find your ASIN right in the URL bar
These method above are great for a few products but if you want to find ASIN in a large number of product, a helpful tool is a ideal solution. Some of the third-party tools are available are: asintool, algopix, etc.
How to create a new ASIN #
When Amazon’s catalog doesn’t contain your product, you’ll need to add it to get an ASIN.
Here are 3 common ways to create a new ASIN:
#1 – Using Amazon’s admin panel #
The very basic way to add products to Amazon is by using the Add a product in your Amazon Seller Central account. From here, you can add each piece of product information manually through Amazon’s web-based admin panel.
#2 – Using Amazon inventory templates #
Amazon file templates can be used to upload product data. First, you must collect a category-specific file template from Amazon. These can be found in the Add products via upload section of your Amazon Seller Central account.
After you’ve completed the file temple, you can upload it to Amazon. Amazon will review the file, create new products, and assign ASINs to them.
#3 – Using an automated feed #
An automated feed is a great way to create new products on Amazon. Feeds enable sellers to easily and systematically create a large number of new products. A feed sends data to Amazon from a source such as your eCommerce shopping cart or backend system.
Furthermore, many feed solutions include features that allow you to edit your source data before sending it to Amazon. This is useful because your source data may require modification to meet Amazon’s restrictive data requirements. These features can also be used to optimize fields for SEO and conversion.
