Every brand has a story to tell. International customers shopping for your export products on marketplaces such as the USA, the UK, Australia and the UAE, among others, make their purchasing decisions based on what they like about your brand and if it solves their needs. For instance, if you export textile to the USA, a customer would want to know what material you’ve used, what are the designs, if there are any variations in colours, etc. This is the information you provide through product listings. The better and more descriptive your listings are, the higher the chances are for a customer to purchase your product. Your listings don’t have to be just descriptive in text but also rich in images and videos.

To assist global sellers and exporters in optimizing their product listings to increase views and sales, Amazon’s A+ Content is an effective tool. This allows brands and sellers to add and modify product descriptions, images, and texts.

What is Amazon A+ Content?

Amazon A+ Content refers to a listing product description, which helps sellers to share their brand's story with features of enhanced image and video content. The use of such content allows sellers to change product description of their branded ASINs (Amazon Standard Identification Number) with the help of rich texts and embedded videos in product descriptions.

Using A+ Content, you can dive into features with technical specs, comparative product info, and additional rich content including images, videos, or product setup. You can also run A/B tests to optimize for conversion using our Manage Your Experiments tool.
