Overview:

You can view items in the My Inventory tab in multiple ways.

The Category menu allows you to limit your results to a specific category, or to view inventory in all categories at the same time.

Choose to view inventory in all categories, or a specific category

You have the option to Browse or Search your inventory in the categories you’ve specified. When you Browse your inventory, target your results by selecting All Active, Recently Modified, Recently Received, or Filter. If you select Filter, you can specify additional criteria to determine which inventory Monsoon Marketplace will display.

When you Search your inventory, select the field you want to search (such as ASIN, Title or SKU) and then type your specific search terms.

Whether you choose to Browse or Search, you will see your Inventory List results in the upper section, and the Item Details of a selected item in the lower section. Take some time to explore the details displayed for various types of inventory.

Things to know:

  • The fields available to search your inventory are adjusted based on the category you have selected. For example, if you search for inventory in all categories, you’ll have the option to search in fields that are common across all records (such as ASIN, Locator Code, SKU, Title and UPC). If you instead choose a specific category like Baby Products, you’ll have additional search choices (such as Color, Mfr. Part # and Size).
  • Similarly, fields common across all inventory categories will always be visible in the Item Details. Additional fields will be visible in the Item Details based on a particular item’s category. For example, an item in the Book category will show Title, Author, and Binding fields, while an item in the Consumer Electronics category will show Item Package, Quantity, and Brand fields.
