Here is step by step process given in details.
First of all, go to the Linnworks Dashboard. Basically, this is the main view of Linnworks. Here you will see the basic functions of this system.

Then choose your marketplace where you want to list the existing items. Here you can find other marketplaces status too if you have accounts in other marketplaces.
Select your item category as per as your products. If you already uploaded varieties of products in Linnworks, then there will be definitely lots of products. Each product has different categories (Like Shirt, Toys etc). Also, select your warehouse as per as your products where the products belong.
Now, filter with Not Listed Items. Then all the not listed items will appear. Then you can easily determine which items are already posted and which items are not. This filtration system just consumes your time. You can easily catch up the product’s status whether it’s listed or not.
Select all the product listing (Ctrl+A) and then hover your mouse to the specific amazon marketplace platform (amazon.co.uk, amazon.ca etc). Select platform where you want to upload your product and then click right in the mouse. Select “Create listing on AMAZON” option. Here another option will appear if you have already created “Configurator”
After selecting configurator, you will need to match similar items from Amazon. While listing in an existing item, the First Condition is the product must be similar with existing items in Amazon.

Then, in the status column, “Updating” process will appear. Which means our matched items is on the way to uploading in existing Amazon listing.
When the “Status” column is showing “Listed”, it means your items are successfully listed in Amazon catalog items or under an existing listing of Amazon.
