How do I download an inventory report?

Inventory reports

Sellers with Professional selling accounts can download inventory reports.

Using Inventory Reports

You may request a summary report or a full report, depending on your needs and the size of your inventory. Because summary reports contain less information about your listings, they will be generated more quickly than full reports. Sellers with more than 50,000 listings can only request summary reports.

You can use Inventory Reports to reconcile your Amazon.in listings with your own records, much as you would use your bank statement to reconcile your cheque book. You can use a full report to review your product listing data, including your product titles and condition notes. You can also use a full report to replenish your inventory levels.

The inventory reports available in your Seller Account are described below, followed by instructions for requesting a report. Data definitions for each report are included in the related topics.

Request and download an inventory report

To request an inventory report, follow these steps:


  1. Go to Inventory and select Inventory Reports.
  2. Select the report type from the drop-down menu. See the list of report types below.
  3. Click on the Request Report button.

    Reports generally take 15 to 45 minutes to generate. You can return to this page later to pick up your completed report.

  4. Under Check Report Status & Download, when the report status is "Ready", click the Download button.
  5. Save the file to your local computer in text (tab delimited, *.txt) format.
  6. Open the report in a spreadsheet or database program, such as Microsoft Excel or Microsoft Access.
Note: The most recently requested reports are available for 30 days, after which they are removed from your seller account.

Types of reports

Inventory Report

This report is a summary of the products that you have available for sale to buyers on Amazon. The report provides the SKU, price, quantity and ASIN for each of your current offers.

You can use the Inventory Report to reconcile your Amazon listings with your available stock and your own records. This is a good way to check the accuracy of your own systems.

Use the Inventory Report if you have more than 50,000 open listings. To maintain fair usage of Amazon's system, do not request more than four Inventory Reports per day. If you have more than 500,000 listings, do not request more than one inventory report per day.

For more information, see How to read an inventory report.

Open Listings Report

This report contains any current merchant-fulfilled open listings available for purchase at the time you request the report. Amazon-fulfilled listings are not included in this report. You can modify and update listings in the spreadsheet, and then upload it using the Inventory Loader.

  • Open Listings Lite Report
    • seller-sku
    • quantity
    • price
    • product ID
  • Open Listings Liter Report
    • seller-sku

Active Listings Report

This report provides a snapshot of all the products you have listed on Amazon at the time the report is run. This report includes all of your product listings, including those with zero (0) quantity. It also provides you with information about the products your listings are matched to on Amazon, including the product title and product identifier.

In most cases, the ASIN is returned as the product ID for the listing, but the product ID may also be the industry standard identifier, such as the ISBN, UPC or EAN.

The Active Listings Report includes details about each listing, including condition, item-note and BMVD shipping settings. If you are enrolled in Fulfilment by Amazon (FBA), the report includes an additional column for the fulfilment channel: seller-fulfilled or Amazon-fulfilled.

This report allows for easy restocking by showing SKUs with zero (0) inventory. If you continue to sell those items, you can restock your listings without resubmitting product data for the SKU or creating a new SKU. If you don't expect to offer the item again and want to eliminate the SKU from your report, you can delete it via the Manage Inventory tool or by using an inventory file upload.

You can use the Active Listings Report if you have up to 50,000 listings. If you have more than 50,000 listings, you must use the Inventory Report.

Overview

Inventory Reports shows the items you have listed on Amazon, along with their price and quantity, at the time the report is run. Since customers can purchase your products at any time, the quantities in an inventory report are at best a spot check, and out of date almost as soon as the report is requested.

The best practice for using Inventory Reports is to use it to verify your own system. Keep track of the listings, price, and quantity changes you have sent to Amazon and keeping track of sales notified via Sold Ship Now emails or Order Reports. Then request an inventory report periodically (say once a week) to do your reconciliation. Comparing this report to your own records is a way to check the accuracy of your own system.

Please note : Amazon.in keeps the most recently-requested reports available for 30 days. After that time, the generated reports are removed from this list.

How to download an Inventory Report

On the Inventory Reports page, in the Check Report Status & Download section, click the Download button to retrieve a report.

Your browser will typically give you a choice of opening the file directly in an application, or saving it to disk. We recommend you save the file to disk for viewing offline. Give the file a meaningful name. If you add a ".csv" file type to the name, it will open automatically from Excel or other spreadsheet programmes when you open it.
