I have a question that I am having trouble finding a solid answer

I have an item that I want to sell on Amazon.

It is a pet ID tag, with multiple designs and the ability to add custom text.

Since it is customizable, I need to ship it from my house.

How do I go about creating a listing, with variations, and custom text, that I can sell from home?

As of right now when I tried to add a new product, and then add variations it is asking me for the product ID numbers which I have not bought because I do not need yet.

Thank you

You can take GTIN exemption and create more variation under GTIN.
Or you can Add multiple images or using a compilation video of Different tags.

You’re better off selling on Etsy if there’s customizing for each customer

That’s where I’m at now. Figured since I already had the seller account going, id list a few things I do well with on Etsy.

I’m currently looking for some small items to list, before I get my samples and big order from Alibaba, instead of the pet id tags.

So it sounds like you should do FBM and then list the popular designs

Yeah that’s also what I just figured out I’m doing wrong. I’m currently registering to sell handmade goods.

I don’t even have capability yet to offer customization, according to what I just read, let alone the knowledge to list variations.

I’m usually a very quick learner, but this Amazon selling has me scratching my head last few days

My advice is you should just keep 1 design and only sell that design until you see some consistent sales. Then you can add a second design and so on.

Your customers can go to your Etsy store if they want customization

Thank you, will keep that in mind

Apply for GTIN exemption against your category then you can list without UPC
