Hi Everyone!

After weeks of research, I finally found my first item to drop ship on Amazon. As I was setting up my listing though, I found myself stumped on how to approach the listing. Amazon is asking me to input the following: product name, manufacture, brand name, manufacturer part number, and product ID, with an asterisk next to product name* and product ID* only. Also, the product ID has 5 subcategories (ASIN, EAN, GCID, GTIN, and UPC).

My question is this... Do I need to put the name of the actual manufacture or can I use my business name as a brand? Also, am I allowed to ignore the categories without an asterisks on them, or will it hurt my listing somehow if I do this? Lastly, what is the purpose of listing a product identification code if I don't plan on amazon storing my inventory for me?
