List FBA Products in Bulk

Learn how you can upload product listings in bulk using a flat file instead of listing each product individually.

You can create listings for Fulfillment by Amazon products in bulk by uploading a tab-delimited list. There are inventory file templates for specific Amazon categories that you can download and use to create your listing files.

For more information about listing products in bulk, see Inventory File Templates.

After you have successfully uploaded the list, you can use the FBA Fulfillment Attributes template to update FBA-specific product information not included in the inventory file templates.

When you use inventory file templates to create your FBA listings, there are several fields that you must fill in correctly to list your products for Fulfillment by Amazon. If you enter the information incorrectly, your FBA listings will revert to showing as being fulfilled by merchant:

Field Name Fulfilled by Amazon Fulfilled by Merchant
FulfillmentCenterID Enter "AMAZON_EU" for all of your FBA listings. Leave this field blank or enter "DEFAULT" for your listings that you want to fulfil on your own.
Quantity Do not enter a value in this field. If you indicated "AMAZON_EU" in the FulfilmentCenterID field, these quantities will be ignored. You can enter quantities in the shipping workflow when you create a shipment to a fulfillment center. Enter the quantity of the product you are making available for sale. This is your current inventory commitment. If left blank and you did not enter a FulfilmentCenterID when first submitting the product information, the product will be displayed as "Out of stock."

Update FBA product information

In addition to the inventory file template, use the FBA Fulfilment Attributes template to update FBA-specific product information not included in the inventory file template. This is information is uploaded once for each listing that you have already created.

Download the FBA Fulfilment Attributes template to begin updating your existing FBA listings.

The workbook includes four tabs:

  • Instructions provides directions for using the template.
  • Data Definitions provides an explanation for each column in the template.
  • Template provides a blank spreadsheet for shipping individual products.
  • Example provides an example of how to list your products.
  • Valid Values provides a list of valid entries for the columns in the template.

To create and upload your attributes list:

  1. Review the instructions and data definitions.
  2. Fill out the spreadsheet, adding all of the appropriate information for your products with values from the Valid Values tab.
    Field name Definition
    is-expiration-dated-product Identifies perishable products
    package-length The length of the product package
    package-width The width of the product package
    package-height The height of the product package
  3. Click File and then click Save As. Browse to the location where you want to save your file. In the File name text box, type a name for your file. In the Save as type drop-down list, select Text (Tab delimited) (*.txt). Click Save.
  4. On the Add Products via Upload tool page, follow the instructions to complete the upload.
  5. Set the Type of File to Upload as "Inventory Files for non-Media Categories," then upload the completed FBA Fulfillment Attributes file.
