Pre-Selling Settings to Check

If you are new to Baby Bunting it is highly recommended that you read this article fully. 

Products and Listings

  • The Baby Bunting Marketplace Onboarding Team will check for Product Identifiers (UPC's, Barcodes, EAN) as part of the product approval process and unless you have your own made Brand they will ask for UPC's.   We recommend checking the Marketplace documentation..  Also consider this Baby Bunting article about Product Attributes.
  • If you have existing listings we recommend asking your Baby Bunting account manager what they advise.  Omnivore will push up your new listings, so managing existing marketplace listings to avoid duplicates is advised.  This reading on existing listings is helpful.
  • The Baby Bunting Marketplace approve all listings that we push up to their marketplace.  Please speak with your onboarding specialist about this process.  They have product compliance rules that sellers must meet in order for products to be approved for listing.  This approval happens initially and on-going as you also add new products to your Baby Bunting listing range.
