Amazon to Migrate All Sellers to New Manage Inventory Page

Amazon is moving sellers to its new Manage Inventory page that had been in beta testing. Sellers can try the new page now (there’s a “try it now” button on the current page).

The permanent migration for all sellers will occur on June 15th.

The new Manage Inventory page allows sellers to filter listings by status and fulfillment channel. It also shows the product images for all of a seller’s product listings so they can quickly identify listings.

A new “Manage Pricing” view is designed to help sellers “more easily make pricing decisions that help you win the buy box, increase conversion, and drive your overall business growth.”

It also offers the ability to customize each page and customize views – “Save your preferences to always start with the same filter settings.”

Amazon also acknowledged that longtime sellers might have difficult finding certain features that they’ve moved, and listed the “three most important things” that are moving:

  • Navigation moves from left to top. This frees up space for more columns across your screen.
  • Simpler names: For example, “Improve Listings Quality” is now “Quality Issues.” “Copy to a new product” is now “Copy listing.”
  • Edit on the right. The “Actions” drop down is now called “Edit” and has moved to the far right column. You can place the “Edit” button on the left side if you like via preferences.

There was some negative reaction to the new page last week on this thread where sellers reported a bug that didn’t allow them to filter inventory. And a couple of sellers said in this thread on Saturday that they hadn’t been able to get into Manage Inventory at all.
