How is a browse node different from a product category?

Every product on Amazon has one browse node to help customers that are either searching or browsing for a type of product. For example, a pair of sneakers could have the browse path:

Clothing, Shoes & Jewelry > Men > Shoes > Athletic

A product category determines what restrictions may be placed on selling products in that category as well as fees.

Changing multiple products' browse node

You can save time when you need to change the category of multiple products by uploading an Inventory File.

  1. Go to Add Products via Upload and generate the appropriate inventory file template.
  2. Enter your product information and include the new category in the Item Type Keyword column.
  3. Upload the file on the Check and Upload your Inventory File tab of the Add Products via Upload page.
