Sellers on Amazon are responsible for ensuring that their listings comply with all applicable local and international laws and regulations. This includes ensuring that:
Using a North America Unified Account, you can create listings for seller-fulfilled products on Amazon.com, Amazon.com.mx, or Amazon.ca and share your inventory across marketplaces using a single SKU.
Typically, if an item is listed in the catalogue of more than one North America marketplace, the detail page in each marketplace will share the same Amazon Standard Item Number (ASIN). Visit Locating product identifiers for more information about ASINs and the industry-standard identifiers used to match seller listings to product pages in Amazon’s catalogues.
Whenever you list an item with the same ASIN in more than one North America marketplace, the item’s quantity and condition will be replicated across each marketplace where the item is listed with the same SKU. This means that if your item sells in one marketplace, or if you manually update the item’s quantity in one marketplace, listings for the item in all North America marketplaces will reflect the new quantity.
For details about how to create and manage listings using global SKUs, see the help topics below. Professional sellers can also find information about uploading files to multiple North America marketplaces in our help topics on inventory file templates, XML files, and AMTU.

To list an item, click Add a Product under the Inventory link in your account, and run a search to locate the detail page for your item.
If the item that you want to list appears in the search results, a detail page already exists for your item. Click Sell yours next to the correct detail page in the search results, select a condition, provide listing information, and click Save & continue to list the item in the marketplace.
If no detail page exists for your item, click Create a new product. After you have provided product details, select a condition and enter listing information to create the new listing in the marketplace.
After you’ve listed an item in one North America marketplace, select a different marketplace from the drop-down menu at the top of the Manage Inventory page to list the item in an additional marketplace. In the listing process for new marketplace, you will be given the option to share product information and the seller SKU for your item.
Use the Add a Product tool to find your item or to create a new detail page in the new marketplace. If we locate a detail page for your item, click Sell yours if it matches your item. If you select the option to create a new detail page and provide your product information, we might then locate a matching detail page in another North America marketplace. The product information you provide will be applied to the ASIN in the new marketplace.
If you choose to create a new listing for your item in another marketplace, you must provide the same product information you used for the item in your original listing, and it must be in the appropriate language for the new marketplace.
As you create a second listing in a new marketplace, you’ll find these two options in the Share your available inventory section of the offer page:
If you choose the Existing offer option, your item’s quantity will be shared across marketplaces. Regardless of which option you choose, you are required to provide pricing information for your item in every marketplace where it is listed.
Use the Close listing action in Manage Inventory. Alternatively, use the Edit details action to set a future Start Selling date for the listing in that marketplace.
Use the Delete product and listing action in Manage Inventory or set the quantity to 0 (zero).
To upload inventory files for Amazon.com, Amazon.ca, or Amazon.com.mx, follow these steps:
If you use XML feeds, provide the appropriate marketplace ID at the time you submit your feed.
When you are registered to sell in multiple marketplaces, there are multiple marketplace IDs associated with your merchant ID. You may, for example, have marketplace IDs for an Amazon.com seller account and an Amazon.ca seller account. When you submit XML fees, you can apply them to one or several marketplace IDs.
When no marketplace is specified, the feed is applied to the default country locale. Your default marketplace is based on the country that you first registered as a seller in. For example, if you used the US Central website to register, your default marketplace would be Amazon.com. (Visit Amazon MWS endpoints and MarketplaceId values for details.)
