Can I configure the Duplicate Listing Report?

The report allows you to review the listings and make an informed choice on which listings to consolidate.

We have given an example below where we are looking for potential duplicate titles.

We recommend a site grading of 2 or 3 when reviewing Titles. With 0 being an exact duplicate, so using a grading of 3 will give us an insight into listings with similar titles. Which we may want to review.

Can I monitor these outside of the Duplicate Listings report?

You can monitor duplicate listings within the Store Performance Dashboard.

You can also drill into this KPI and monitor over time.

What plans include the Duplicate Listing Report?

The Duplicate Listing Report is available on our Starter, Essential and Ultimate plans
