Bulk submission by design file

Hey!!

Here is a suggestion. I am sure some of you thought about this but I did not find anything in the merch space.


Let's think about files (not design, not product). In the "create products" page, when you upload a file (4500x5400 size for example), it populates a number of products at the same time. If you replace this file while in the "create" phase, it again populates the same products with the new file.


Therefore, for validation and review purposes, a bulk submission of a file (e.g., 4500x5400 size) would still enable Amazon to check if the image and the metadata are in synch with the policies while enabling us to have several products submitted at the same time.


This would consume only 1 submission of the x available for the day. Then, another file would consume another slot and so on. So, 1 submission equals several products with the same design file, all with the same image and metadata.


Any comments?


Thanks!!

It's a great idea, thus it will probably never happen. :( This limit that we have and the review processing times are ridiculous. There are definitely better ways, and Amazon should ask for creator input when rolling out new options.

I think that this is awesome reasoning, you would want the image (artwork) to populate all applicable designs. This will eliminate a lot of problems according to what I am reading. By submitting one design at a time you run the risk of not getting subsequent designs approved based on whose lap it falls on for approval, plus you save yourself a lot of time. This is defiantly the practice I will follow. Thank you for posting this, I am new here and is looking for answers and suggestions

Hey Monika! Thanks for supporting the idea! Let's hope this gets some traction! You raised an interesting point about the review process. The bulk submission per design file will also save a lot of time for the Amazon team as well!

Hi there: one thing I forgot to ask you: Can you please post the steps to take (the process) or step by step actions on uploading using bulk submission. I am still in the learning process and even though I will probably figure this out myself, I would really appreciate your lead on this.

Thank you,

Monika

Hi! Sounds like a plan. It makes more since to post it once and it popular to all instead of having to upload to each item for approval. I would like it if once the item is approve it allows listing for all products and it count as one. This way customers who like the design at that time would have more choices. Thank for sharing this and lets hope it gets somewhere

So Amazon is instituting "automatic product upload" that will do this. You have to opt out by July 13, 2021, if you don't want to participate. Sounds great, but I have a few questions regarding white designs on white products (like totes and pillows).

Yes, Amazon just released this new feature!! I so am looking forward to understanding more about it! So far, I have to put all my designs in Draft and Publish the number allowed per day. Let's see how this will work!! Not all designs can be scaled down easily.
