If you sell on multiple Amazon marketplaces, you can choose between changing your listings
status for all marketplaces or for specific marketplaces only.
To change the status of your open listings for
your self-fulfilled items in all marketplaces, use the All Listings option and
check the box next to Active or Inactive as desired.
To make exceptions and set your listings
status per marketplace, use the options to select either Active or Inactive for each

any reason (for example, family emergency, inclement weather, going on holiday or
vacation, and so on), you can change your Listings Status to Inactive. This will remove
all of your listings from Amazon product detail pages and search results within one
hour. If you have any Fulfillment by
Amazon listings, they will remain active on Amazon. You can change your Listings
Status for all of your listings, or just for specific marketplaces.
You must process return requests and respond to messages from customers
within 24 hours, even if your listings are set to Inactive

listings, check for any pending orders, since these will not automatically be cancelled.
You may want to set your listings status to Inactive prior to the date you will be away,
