How To

Selling on Sears.com


The Sears Marketplace is an ever-growing marketplace. If you're not currently selling your products on Sears the time to start is now!

Although the Sears catalog is extensive and growing every day, it does not and cannot ever represent the universe of all possible products. For this reason, the new product detail page creation process exists. For Sears to allow you to create a new product listing, an extensive amount of data about that product is required to maintain the search ability and browsing that make for a positive buying experience. Because of these steeper listing requirements, it may take you longer to supply the amount of data needed to create a new listing, but this may be worth your effort if you can be the only seller on Sears selling that product.

When matching an existing product detail page, you will be listed as a seller of that product alongside other merchant sellers, possibly including Sears as a potential competitor. Sometimes when attempting to match, your product detail information is not specific enough to match one product exactly. When this occurs, you will receive an error in your product status view indicating that the product has a match(es) and indicating the data item that is preventing an exact product match.
