To provide a better shopping experience for our customers, effective October 26, 2021, we’re introducing the following three mandatory attributes for listings created one at a time or in bulk.
- Net Content: A new attribute set for eight Product Types (PTs)
- Item Form: A previously optional attribute that will become mandatory for 86 PTs
- Number of Items: A previously optional attribute that will become mandatory for 154 PTs
With these changes, all ASINs for select PTs must have these attributes populated when you submit new ASINs or update existing ASINs. Failure to populate these mandatory attributes will prevent any new selection creation in the relevant PTs after October 21, 2021. Note that this will not de-list any selection that you have listed before October 21, 2021. However, to provide a seamless shopping experience for customers, we strongly recommend that you update this information on existing listings. If you have ASINs in your inventory in any of the select PTs that don’t have an 'Item Form' or 'Number of Items' value, you may begin updating these attributes now.
Additionally, we are adjusting the allowed values for the Unit Count Type attribute for 138 PTs. For more information, see Net Content, Item Form, and Number of Items attributes details page.
