Amazon allows sellers to list their products in specific categories based on the type of products they are selling. Changing the product category on Amazon involves creating a new product listing in the desired category. Here are the steps to change the product category on Amazon:
- Log in to Your Amazon Seller Account:
- Go to the Amazon Seller Central website (sellercentral.amazon.com) and log in to your seller account with your credentials.
- Access the “Add a Product” Tool:
- Once you’re logged in, locate the “Add a Product” tool. You can usually find it on the main dashboard or under the “Inventory” tab.
- Enter Product Information:
- In the “Add a Product” tool, start entering the information for your product. This includes the product’s title, brand, manufacturer, and other relevant details.
- Choose the New Category:
- As you fill out the product information, you will come to a section where you can select the product category. Use the category drop-down menu to choose the new category in which you want to list your product.
- Complete the Listing:
- Continue filling out all the necessary information for your product listing, including pricing, condition, and other product-specific details.
- Submit the Listing:
- Once you have entered all the required information and selected the new category, review your listing to ensure accuracy. Then, click the “Submit” or “Save and Finish” button to create the new product listing.
- Wait for Approval (if necessary):
- Some categories on Amazon may require approval from Amazon before you can list products in them. If your new category requires approval, you will need to wait for Amazon’s review and approval process.
- Manage Your Listings:
- After your new product listing is created and approved (if required), you can manage it from your Amazon Seller Central account. You can edit the listing, adjust pricing, and monitor sales from your seller dashboard.
Please note that the availability of certain categories and the approval process may vary depending on your seller account type (e.g., individual or professional) and your selling history on Amazon. Additionally, it’s essential to adhere to Amazon’s category-specific rules and guidelines when listing products in a new category.
