Do you manage items for multiple markets?

You may need to confirm which market you want to view the first time you log in to Item 360.

You can switch between your markets (e.g., United States, Canada, Mexico, Japan) using the market selector in the global header in Item 360. When you log out of Item 360 and then log back in, you will see the market you last viewed in your previous session.

Features and functionality may vary between your markets. Make sure you are viewing the correct market for the task you want to complete. The Item 360 HelpDocs at https://itemmanager.helpdocs.io/ are relevant to the U.S. market only.
