Are my eBay products suitable for listing on Amazon?

On eBay I list gardening related products but not ‘shrink wrapped’ items. For example I buy garden netting in 250M long rolls and then sell it cut-to-order in 5/10/25/50 metre lengths. I have no barcode or other number for the product as it is a ‘custom’ product. I do the same for clear and black polythene sheeting, and other things. I am not sure how I would list these on Amazon. To see examples of what I list look at my eBay shop within my username ashnook.

Hi Ashnook,

As you will see in the upcoming Amazon guides, one of the keys to selling on Amazon is to have a Barcode. The one way to do that would be to assign your own barcodes effectively creating your own unique products to sell.

GS1 is the global facility for monitoring barcodes and you can register and rent barcodes from them.
