A new listing experience is launching over the next few weeks for Handmade, starting on April 6th. If you don’t see the feature in your Seller Central account right away, rest assured, it’s coming soon! The new listing experience is launching in phases and we will send additional communications as soon as the new tool is available for everyone.
The new listing experience will enable variations, which is one of the top feature requests from our Handmade community! Variations are related products in terms of size, color, metal type, etc. that show up together on a single detail page. Good variation relationship listings allow customers to compare and choose products based on different attributes options.
Look out for more emails on the new listing experience! We will be sharing out more tips and best practices to help you transition your eligible products to variations.
Frequently Asked Questions

No. The new listing experience is rolling out over the course of a few weeks. Handmade Support cannot manually add the new listing experience to your account.
- Am I required to update my products?

- What is changing with customized listings?
In the new custom listing experience, you will first create the product listing, save and publish. Then go back to the “Manage Inventory” and click the “Edit” drop down on the ASIN and select “Add/Edit Customization Options” to add customization to your listings.
- My products are in FBA, can I convert them to variation families?
Yes! Changing FBA products from a single detail page to a variation family does not change the ASIN or SKU of the product and can be updated without removing inventory from the fulfillment centers.
