Add a Variation using Variation Wizard

The Variation Wizard is an interactive tool that allows you to create parent-child variation relationships in bulk using an auto-populated inventory file template.

For more information about parent-child variations, see Create parent-child relationships.

To access the Variation Wizard follow the below steps:


  1. On the Inventory link in your Seller Central account, select Add a Product.
  2. In the List many products via bulk upload option, select Add a Variation using Variation Wizard.

Follow the below steps for adding a new child variation to an existing listing created by you or another Seller:


  1. Search for the ASIN for the parent/child listing in a variation family. The parent listing appears with Parent under the "parentage" column. If there are existing child variations, they are displayed with Child under the "parentage" column.
  2. For existing child variations created by you, you can use the Edit button to edit information.
  3. If you searched for an ASIN created by another Seller, Click Sell Yours, if the child variation you want to add is already listed under the parent SKU. Provide the Quantity, Price and Condition to add your offer.
  4. Click Add to add a new child variation to the variation family and use the editable columns to provide required information and then click Save.
  5. Repeat step 4 to add more child variations.
  6. You can use the Edit or Delete button to edit/delete the newly added variation.
  7. Click Generate Template to get a pre-filled inventory file template, which you can upload to add the new variations.
Note: In the Excel Template, be sure to delete the quantity amounts for any FBA SKUs in your inventory. If you leave the quantities in tact, it will convert any FBA inventory to Merchant Fulfilled. Leave the Update/Delete column set to Partial Update.
Note: The Variation Wizard currently does not support ASINs in the Handmade category on Amazon.
