Inventory file templates

Individual sellers: This feature is available to sellers with Professional selling plans.
Note: Macros in inventory file templates are no longer supported.

An Inventory File Template is a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet that contains multiple data columns for describing your products. Sellers use Inventory File Templates to upload listings to Amazon. Different inventory file templates helps sellers to create new product listings, update existing product details and adding their offering on an existing product.

Most inventory file templates are designed for a specific product category. However, if you are not sure about the category your products will fall under, use search tool or product classifier available here to generate a file for your product. For detailed instructions on how to create an inventory file, see create your customized inventory file.
