Today, we are going to test a new free plugin for merge by Amazon called productor. I think it is a real must-have plugin, Now productor does the job of about three other plugins that I could mention that are not free, that are premium.
Furthermore the developer tells me he has no plans to make this plug-in premium so it will always be free and I am going to tell you all of the things I think it does really well and why I will be using it from now on with my merch by Amazon business.
Things you need to know
Just to show you a few of the things the plug-in can do for you. Here is your merch history all the products you have sold in these bars here, the number of products sold and we have in this line the profit and you see it is divided between us GB and Germany and down here you have all the products that you have sold and you can order them in the number they have sold and download the CSV and just have a look what you have done right, what is working for you can be very helpful.
The other thing you see on this top tab after you have loaded the plug-in is product or managed, it can take a while to load these pages. But once they are loaded, it gives you an amazing amount of information of course you have got all your sales stats here.
The number of reviews the number of sales and down here is your complete database of all your products that you can order on a number of different columns. Here you can have a look at all the products that have not sold.
How to delete Products from Merch By Amazon
If you wanted to delete them you can order your products by price or by again number of sales or by date created and here you have a number of quick buttons that are extremely useful you can relist products that have been removed. You can create hoodies and pop socket images I will come to that later, you can download the PNG is for the design and here you can copy the product to clipboard and I will do that with the standard shirt here because that is something I find very useful.
Now I have copied that to clipboard and now go through the create process and how the whole process of creating a new product and products in merch by Amazon is helped by the productor plugin.
Saved publishing settings
I am going to create now something I have been finding hugely helpful recently is this saved publishing settings. This is a button added by merch by Amazon itself just recently, but you can save all the colors, the products, the prices and text here with that button that’s very helpful. But As I said previously, I copied one of the products that I had in my database so I am now going to paste that and I get all the text for the bullet points.
The brand and design title and it is going to be very easy for me. Now to edit that and apply it to a new design that is in a similar niche so I am just go up here and upload the artwork.
I have just uploaded the PNG and I am checking every box here. I do not usually do that because I am a little bit short of slots but this is just to show you everything that you can do with productive usually.
I would have used the merch by Amazon save publish settings to have copied all these colors, but productor gives you the ability to select all colors which is very handy and then you can just unselect the ones you do not want to get it down to ten.
I am going to put that price down as well so I am going to copy those colors with productor. I really usually would not have to do this because I would have copied these colors with the save publish settings button with these products.
You can just select all the colors and now we come to the pullover hoodie and I have not got the PNG for that but of course productor has that covered.
We can click here to convert to hoodie size. One thing about productor is it does not really give you a choice of the crop. You do have that functionality with merge wizard which I like. Let’s have a look how it did with the hoodie.
I am just uploading that new hoodie PNG and what I am about it let’s do the top socket and while we are waiting for that, we might as well do the colors and there it is looks pretty good to me.
Let’s do the zip hoodie and finally the pop socket is default onto black background which is fine for this product. Another thing to say here is with this button you can clean the listing of product types, so if you have said t-shirt or hoodie in text that you copied from the database, you just click that button and it will change it into a generic word.
Remember these days. We do not want to say the name of the products in the multi uploader. That is because Amazon append the name of the product to the end of your design title so just give me a second and I will change this text to be more perfectly aligned. With this particular product more to tell you about what productor can do for you.
At this stage we can do a copyright check using TM hunt and seeing if any of the words or groups of words you think might be trademarks. Of course you should have more detailed searches if you are worried about infringing on someone’s trademark or copyright. But I am kind of happy with this as I have already uploaded something similar to it and this button here use bullet points extended will populate the description with your bullet points as well.
I do not get it to show my expiring products or warn me of products are about to expire because I am not really bothered about that. I do use the auto log-in feature. Another thing you can do is add another default to your settings I have not used these as I use the Amazon save publish settings button.
I will discuss what that is? I have it set to yes and that is because it does a better job than des Amazon quick view extension which shows you the BSR of every product on a product page which is really handy.
But productor shows you a whole lot more gives you estimated sales. I guess that is monthly sale estimation and the date. It was added it also has focused keywords and if you click this button it shows you other indexed keywords from Amazon which could be handy with keyword research.
Another thing to say at the top here even better you can click on the rank and then it will sort all the results in order of rank which is similar to what much informer can do for you shows you a good overview about the potential of a particular niche.
You can immediately see the top 10 or 15 be SRS and make a conclusion as to whether. That is competitive or not. In the case of this particular search I would say it is. It does take a lot of CPU and it make your computer work a little slowly and if that is the case if you find your computer sticking then just go to Chrome code on four slash four slash extensions and you can deactivate the plug-in momentarily there and activate it for when you need it.
