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

Amazon offers specific file formats to upload multiple listings for media sellers at one time. These formats will attempt to match your listings to ASINs in the Amazon catalog by ISBN (for books), UPC, or EAN. In cases where these codes aren't available, we will cross reference the title and other product information to find a match. When no match is available for a specific product and sufficient product details are provided, we will create a new detail page for your product. Below are the different file formats available for media sellers.

  • Book Loader
  • UIEE Book Format
  • Music Loader
  • Video Loader

Follow these steps when using the file templates:


  1. Download the template: Download the file template from Templates for Specific Categories and save it to your desktop. (You can also access this page from the Inventory link. Select Add Products via Upload and click Download Template.)
  2. Enter listing information: Enter the SKU, product identifier, and listing data for the items you want to offer for sale in the template tab of the file. You can manually enter listing details one-by-one, or you can import an existing file using the Import File macro.
  3. Validate listings: Check the information you entered for errors. If you have macros enabled, you can automate this process. Select Validate from the Add-Ins menu. The macro checks data completeness and greatly reduces upload failures due to input errors.
  4. Upload listings to Amazon: Select Upload File from the Add-Ins menu. Enter your selling account e-mail and password. If you do not have macros enabled, save the file as tab-delimited text (.txt) format and upload it at Upload Products & Inventory on the Inventory menu.
Note: Steps 1 through 3 do not apply to the UIEE Book Format. You will need to generate your own files for the UIEE book format and Amazon does not provide macros to import, validate, or upload your files.
