Adding a Title to Amazon.ca

Is your title listed already in Amazon.ca's catalogue? If you're not sure, go to the Video or DVD search pages, where you can perform a quick title search.

At Amazon.ca, we're proud to offer studios the opportunity to list new titles in our catalogue. Please note that your titles must meet the following criteria in order for them to be eligible for listing with Amazon.ca:

  • Your title must possess a valid UPC.
  • Your title must be available from a Canada-based distributor from whom we can source the titles. Please make sure your titles are registered with one of the distributors from whom we receive regular updates.

Here's a list of distributors with whom we currently work:

  • Pindoff Record Sales
  • Video One

Adding Descriptive Content to Your Amazon.ca Title

You can add a product description; studio, director, or actor comments; actor/director filmographies; and biographies to your Amazon.ca listing page. You can easily add this information by visiting Vendor Central.

Adding Cover and Interior Images to Your File

Cover and interior images must be submitted via Vendor Central. We cannot accept any images sent via e-mail. This is how we must receive your cover images:

  • TIFF or JPEG format only.
  • 648 pixels in height.
  • 24-bit RGB colour.
  • File name must use 12-digit UPC or 10-digit ASIN.
  • Overwrites should include ".new" after the ASIN in the file name.

To name an image file, use the title's ASIN or UPC, followed by the format in which it was scanned and saved (e.g., 0443456789.jpg, 355678909.tiff, 6004435678.new.tif; 1254545332.new.jpg).

Images should be a full-front view of the cover, with no borders.

This is how we must receive your interior images:

  • TIFF or JPEG format only.
  • 648 pixels in height.
  • 24-bit RGB colour.
  • File name must use 10-digit ASIN or 12-digit UPC and interior-image number.
  • Overwrites should include ".new" after the ASIN in the file name.

To name an image file, use the title's UPC or ASIN, followed by the interior-image number (from 1 to 8) and the format in which it was scanned and saved (e.g., 0443456789.interior01.jpg, 1355678909.interior08.tiff, 1355678909.interior05.new.tiff).

Note that any copyright information you want displayed for interior images must be incorporated into the image itself. For more details on posting interior images, please see our Limited License Agreement.

Rights Issues

As part of our ongoing commitment to provide our customers with the widest choice and best value possible, the Amazon.ca Web site currently includes more than half a million US titles. We have software in place that suppresses US titles that infringe on Canadian copyright, but occasionally one will slip through the net. Please notify us if you believe we're selling a title that infringes on Canadian copyright; we'll remove it from our Web site as quickly as we can. We refer to such titles as "violators." Please send notification of violators to: Customer Service.
