How to build your items list in ZIK Analytics, ready to list with DSM Tool

 

Creating an item folder

 

To organize all the items that you wish to list with DSM Tool, you need to create an item folder. Once you have an item folder, you can save any hot items you find whilst using any of the tools included with ZIK Analytics such as the manual scanner.

 

Creating an item folder is very straightforward and can only takes 2 simple steps:

 

 

  1. From the ZIK Analytics dashboard, go to Management Panel - My Folders

 



 

  1.  Type a folder name, description and then click add folder


 

Once you click “Create Folder”, the folder will appear. 

 


 

If you don’t create a folder you will still be able to save items, however any item you save will appear in the “unorganized folder”.

 

Adding items to your item folder using the Manual Scanner

 

You can add items to a folder anytime you use the category research, competitor research or product research tools. Here’s how:

 

 

  • After doing a search, you should have a list of products.

 

 

Look for the green and red buttons to the side of any product. A green button means that ZIK Analytics has a 99% chance of locating the item on Amazon, whereas a red button means ZIK Analytics is unable to find it and you’ll need to search manually.

 


 

  1. Click on the green or red button next to the item you wish to save

 

If you click on a green button, a popup will appear showing the item on Amazon and on eBay like the one below:

 


 

However if you click on a red button, a popup will appear like the one below instead, as ZIK Analytics is unable to locate the item on Amazon automatically. For these items, you’ll need to manually locate the ASIN and then click “Reload” under the Reload ASIN box. To locate the ASIN, you can search for the product image or part of the product description in Google. 

 


 

  1. Select the folder you want to save your items to and click “Add to List” 

 

 

Your items will now be ready in the your folder, ready to be uploaded to DSM Tool.

 

Adding items using the Bulk Scanner with ZIK Pro Tools

 

If you’re subscribed to ZIK Pro Tools, you can also add items to folders using the bulk scanner. After scanning a seller, you’ll have a list of all the items they’re selling. 

 


 

You can filter by profit, sales, price, sales range and upload date and then use the checkboxes on the side to select some or all of the items you wish to save.

 

Once you’ve decided, simple select the folder from the dropdown box and click “move”. 

 


 

Bonus tip: Edit your titles before uploading your listings to DSM Tool

 

Before you upload your listings, you need to make sure you’ve optimized your eBay titles so you get as many sales as possible.

 

Luckily you can do this very easily from within the item folders (via Management Panel - My Folders).

 


 

You should see 4 different icons next to items within your folder. When you click “edit item” at the top you’ll be able to edit the title (as well as ASIN, and prices).
