Listing in multiple marketplaces

Whether you are matching to an existing product listing or creating a new one, you have the option to reach more Customers by making your listing available across multiple Amazon marketplaces during the listing process. Provide additional attributes such as price for each additional marketplace in the offer tab to create listings in those marketplaces in addition to the marketplace you have selected in the Seller Central header. Prices should be provided in the local marketplace currency, which is denoted in the price field. If a detail page doesn’t yet exist in those marketplaces, Amazon will attempt to automatically translate and create a page on your behalf. This process can take up to 48 hours to complete, and you will be able to suggest content changes in local language after completion.

Available marketplaces are determined by where you are registered, and for marketplaces outside of regions like Europe or North America, by your linked accounts. To find out more about listing policies for each marketplace, go to Amazon’s Category, Product and Content Restrictions.
