Have you ever checked your Amazon sales and wondered what the sales rank was at the time of listing? For this post, I'm going to show you how to do that. Plus, I'm going to show examples of books that sold recently with a bad sales rank.
Embed the Sales Rank into your SKU Number
The best way to do this is to attach the sales rank to the end of your SKU number. It can be very tedious to do this manually, but you can do it automatically using ScanLister. On top of ScanLister, select “sales rank” on the SKU Prefix #2 box. See screenshot below.
As you can see the SKU of the first book scanned is BookLister-000001-11837. The sales rank (11837) is now at the end of the SKU.
