Seller Account Settings
Every Amazon seller has an account with customizable seller account settings. The seller account settings are found in five tabs with drop-down menus at the top of the seller’s account page:
- Settings (to the far right of the menu bar)
Each category contains many subcategories that sellers can tailor to their individual preferences or needs. Personalize your page in the following ways:
- Low Price Comparison. This feature allows sellers to see, and therefore, match the current lowest prices on Amazon for the same products.
- Results per page. This feature allows sellers to choose how many results they will see on each Inventory page.
- Shipping charges in price columns. This feature is connected to the Shipping Settings page. When sellers have selected the Item/Weight-Based shipping model there, they may opt for the lowest shipping charges to be displayed in the Your Price and Low Price columns too. When this option is selected, Match Low Price uses the total price of the item and shipping for comparison. Otherwise, matching is based on the cost of the item alone.
- Initial sort. This feature allows sellers to choose the default sort order, as it will appear in the drop-down menu.
- Column display. This feature, together with search filters, allows sellers to show and hide columns to determine the listing table’s column display.
- Manage orders. This feature allows sellers to view the details of every order, confirm that shipments have been made, print shipping labels, and issue refunds.
- Order reports. This feature enables sellers to download text files containing order information.
- Upload order-related files. This feature allows sellers to upload text files with shipping information for each order, any order adjustment details, and order cancellations.
