Listing products in Bulk
Listing is an essential part of setting up your business on an online marketplace like It is the process of creating your product catalogue by detailing out the product description and other mandatory features to present it online for purchase by customers. As a retailer, you may have hundreds of products to sell and listing them one by one can seem difficult and time consuming. But it doesn’t have to be like that! You can use Amazon’s pre-set excel templates (available in Seller Central ) to create listings all together in bulk. All you need is to follow three simple steps:

>Download the Inventory File from Seller Central
>Input information about your products in the file
>Upload the file to via your Seller Central Account

Download the Inventory File from Seller Central

Once you log on to your Seller Central account ( or click here to register and create your account ), you can click on Inventory, and then click on Add products via upload. You can click on the product category you plan to list, download the file and save it on your desktop.

Input information about your products in the file

Once you open the excel file, you can go to the instructions sheet that has all the step-by-step information required to list the products for that specific category. The Data Definition sheet gives detailed information on the use of each field that you are required to fill in to create the product listings. Finally, you can click on the Template Sheet and start filling in the product details such as Title, SKU, Product ID, Product ID type, Product Format etc. All mandatory data required for listing are clearly highlighted in bold. However, it is highly recommended to provide as much data available as possible. Once all the necessary columns are filled, you can save the file on your desktop and make sure while saving you follow the file format as mentioned in the excel.
