We all know that listing an item is an essential part in building your online selling business. May it be on Amazon, eBay, Shopify, etc. One of a good thing in selling an item on Amazon is that you can list a product against an existing product.
Amazon allows product matching to eliminate duplicate listing and to prevent the product from appearing multiple times. Good product matching directly benefits you. When you match your product to an existing listing, you ensure that customers can find your offer.
Now let’s walk you in adding a product and matching an existing Amazon listing.

You can start by logging in to your account at sellercentral.amazon.com.
Navigate to the Add a Product Page
Once you’re in, you need to add a product listing. You can do that by clicking the Inventory Tab and select Add a Product on the drop-down or by clicking the Catalog Tab and select Add Products on the drop-down. Both will take you to the same page.

In order to match your item, you need to look for the similar item that is already listed on Amazon. You can either use the Product Name, UPC, EAN, ISBN and ASIN. Just search for the product and choose the identical item on the results.
Specify the condition of your item that you’re selling and click the Sell This Product button.
