Separate UPCs for each variation  

All the talk about UPC codes and SKUs can be very confusing. Do you need a unique one for each variation on your product listing? The simple answer is yes. You need to make sure that each different option that you provide both in size and color options need to have their own unique UPCs.

How YOU can get reviews for your Amazon product

Now that Amazon has rolled out its new “Terms of Service” many people are left wondering how to get reviews for their Amazon product listing. Scott shares his view that reviews are not the be all end all. He wants listeners like you to focus on getting sales, not reviews. Scott suggests that you follow up with the individuals who buy your product and offer them great deals. Wow, them, give them discounts and really treat them special. Then ask them to head over to Amazon and let them know how you feel. That's it. No guarantees, no promises, no gimmicks. If you follow Scott’s advice, you will see the positive results.
