Product Catalog Upload

CompetitorEye will attempt to import and match your catalog based on the ASIN, UPC/EAN or MPN.

ASIN: Amazon Standard Identification Number. Amazon uses this value to reference a product, very similar to how a manufacturer uses a UPC.

UPC: Universal Product Code. Each manufacturer is assigned a UPC by a governing authority to represent their product. It's the bar code scanners read when your checking out at your local store. EAN - European equivalent to UPC.

MPN: Manufacturer Part Number. This is the name the manufacturer has designated to represent the product. It is not the Sku which is a customer friendly version of the MPN.

SKU: Stock Keeping Unit. A merchant-specific identifier for a purchasable good, like a shirt or chair. Amazon's version of the SKU is the ASIN.

We have three methods of importing your product catalog, the online import page you are viewing ,automated FTP import and instant storefront snapshot.
