Classify your products using Browse Tree Guides - BTG

Amazon customers find products through search and browse. When customers browse, they can further refine their search by choosing specific product categories and subcategories. Classify your products so that they also appear in browse.

Note: If your product is created in the wrong category, see Change a product’s category.

For large product volumes, use a Browse Tree Guide (BTG) to help you identify the correct categories for your products. BTGs provide unique numbers and keywords that are associated with a certain browse path on Amazon.

Note: For small volumes, use Add Products via Upload (Product Classifier) to categorize up to approximately 20-30 product types, or Select a product category to classify products one-by-one.

To use a BTG:

  1. Go to Inventory File Templates and BTG and download the appropriate BTG from the relevant link in the table.
  2. Follow the instructions in the guide and choose the categories and subcategories for your products. Use the corresponding browse node IDs when you upload your inventory template file.
