Set Rules and Categories For Your Market

Before creating your market, you have the option to set some rules. We recommend reviewing and choosing any rules that would apply to your market because the more rules you use to filter products, the stronger your market will be. You can also add specific ASINs to make sure they are included in your market.

Choosing which categories and/or subcategories the included products will be a part of can help filter your market down even further to only include applicable products.

Review and Create Your Market

You're almost there! In this final step, will set some basic settings for your market, such as your market's name, default currency, and date range.

Set your ASIN level to parent if you want to include all variations or child if you want only specific variations included.

If your market contains keywords, you can opt to have market updates applied to your market. You can choose Automatic to have newly identified products added to your market or Controlled to have the new products added under the Suggested Products tab in your market's settings. Selected Disabled will ensure your market is not updated with additional products. 

Once you've performed a final review of your market selections and you are ready to proceed, select Create Market

Your new market will show in your market list. It will have a Building status and will not be selectable until this process has finished. 

When the tool finishes building your market, you will receive a confirmation email, and the status will turn green and say Ready.
