Review Processing Reports

Processing reports are downloadable files that let you review the status of your inventory file uploads. The processing report is a tab-delimited text file you can open and read in a program such as Microsoft Excel or Notepad.

Individual sellers: This feature is available to sellers with Professional selling plans.

To download the processing report, follow the below steps:

  1. Under Inventory, select Add Products via Upload.
  2. In the Inventory file upload status section download the report.

At the top of the processing report, there is a summary of records (listings) with the total number of records processed, and the total number processed successfully. The difference is the number of records not processed successfully (or processed with errors).

In the example given below, 1,045 records were processed, of which 1,030 records were processed successfully and 15 were unsuccessful because of errors:

Number of records processed: 1045 

Number of records successful: 1030 

The processing report displays errors in the following format. You can use this report to make necessary corrections in your inventory file, and then reload the file to correct your listings. For more information, see the Data Definitions tab in your inventory template file, or review ourError Code Explanations.
