Amazon standard Identification numbers are used to identify different articles in Amazon’s catalog. These numbers are present in the products of each size and kind present on this platform. The number of product listings depends on the type of products that you are selling on Amazon.

Depending on the type of the products, sometimes you create a new ASIN number, and sometimes you can use the existing ASIN number.

If you are a private label seller, wholesaler, or a unique brand owner on the Amazon platform then you will have to create a new Amazon Standard Identification Number because your products do not already exist in the Amazon catalog.

On the other hand, if you are a reseller or a retailer then you may not need to create a new ASIN number because the products you are selling already exist in the Amazon Catalogue. You just need to match the product to the existing catalog of amazon and add your offer in the product listing.

The distinction between the regular and unique products is very important because any violation of amazon’s rules and regulations may stop you from selling your product on this platform.
