What Are ASIN Numbers?
ASIN stands for Amazon Standard Identification Number. It’s a unique 10-character combination of letters and numbers used by Amazon and its associates to identify products within its system.
Every item listed on Amazon.com receives its distinct ASIN. While for books, the ASIN corresponds to its ISBN, other products have a newly generated ASIN when Amazon adds them to its inventory.
Where Can I Find It?
There are two ways to find a product’s ASIN:
1) In the product’s URL
2) In the product’s information
How To Create And Use ASINs
Products that are already sold on Amazon don’t require a new ASIN, since they already have one assigned to them. If you want to sell a product that is not already listed, here’s how to create a new ASIN on Amazon:
1. List Your Product:
First of all, you start by listing your product with all its information on the Amazon platform.
2. Search Your Product:
While you are listing your products you will have to ensure that they are not already on Amazon. This step is important for Amazon to make sure that there are no duplicates.
3. Creation of ASIN:
After you have provided Amazon with the necessary info, it will create a listing and assign an ASIN to the product.
How ASINs Can Benefit Your Business?
- Differentiates your product from others, ensuring accurate listing and order fulfillment.
- Boosts your product’s visibility during Amazon searches, leading to potential increased sales.
- Combines inventory tracking and targeted advertising, using a single consistent code for efficiency.
- Allows for a deeper understanding of product performance and sales trends linked to each ASIN.
- Serves as a standardized identifier across Amazon’s platforms and reduces the risk of duplicate listings, preserving brand integrity.
