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 these inventory file templates to create your FBA listings, make sure you include the following information:

  • In the Fulfillment Center ID column (fulfillment_center_id), type AMAZON_NA for products that you will be selling through FBA. If you plan to fulfill this product yourself (Fulfilled by Merchant), leave the field blank, or type DEFAULT. If you want to sell these products through FBA and fulfill them yourself, you need two listings, one for each fulfillment type.
  • In the Quantity column (quantity), leave this field blank for FBA products. You will use the tools in your seller account to update the quantity when you create your shipping plan. If you are fulfilling the items yourself (Fulfilled by Merchant), type the number of items you currently have in 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 Fulfillment 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.
