Have you ever been shopping on Amazon.com, scrolled down on a product page, and instead of just seeing the typical, plain text product description – you thought “Wow, this looks amazing!”? If the answer is yes, you were looking at A+ Content.
What is A+ Content?
A+ Content allows brands to showcase their brand image through highly customizable modules. The enhanced content appears under the product description. Registered brand owners can utilize A+ Content to create visually appealing, interactive product descriptions - showcasing your brand story!
There are some incredible benefits to creating A+ Content on Amazon:
- Increased Conversion Rates
- Increased Ranking
- Increased Sales
- Reduced Product Complaints
- Reduced Negative Reviews
- Reduced Returns
Depending on your eligibility, you can choose between Basic and Premium A+ Content.
Basic A+ Content: allows brands to create custom paragraph headers and images, unique image and text layouts, product comparison charts, and a text editor. To be eligible, sellers must be registered with Brand Registry.
Premium A+ Content: get access to everything under Basic A+ Content, plus more. Unlock interactive hover hotspot modules, video modules, enhanced comparison charts, larger product images, carousel modules, and Q&A modules.
Eligibility for A+ Premium Content is a bit trickier compared to Basic. Sellers need to publish a brand story to every ASIN that’s Brand Registered in their catalog to be eligible in the first place. On top of that, you need to complete at least 15 A+ project submissions within one year. Amazon measures Premium A+ eligibility every month, so be on the lookout if you believe you meet the requirements!

Creating A+ Content
To create or edit A+ Content, navigate from the Seller Central menu to Advertising > A+ Manager. Recently, Amazon released a new Premium A+ Module Guide. If you’re unsure of the specifications required for Premium A+ Content, the guide is a great place to find that information. It clearly breaks down the requirements for each module type.
Depending on your catalog size and product type, adding A+ content to your entire catalog may be easier said than done.
