Error 30033

The item with SKU sku cannot be modified because it matches a deleted item.

This error occurs when you attempt to update or delete an item matching a product that has already been deleted from the catalog.  Most likely, you provided an invalid ASIN as the StandardProductID.  Unless instructed to do so by your account manager, you should not provide ASIN values as the StandardProductID.  An item's ASIN may change from time to time and old ASIN values will become invalid.

To solve this error using tab-delimited text files:

  1. Change the StandardProductID value for this item in your inventory template so that it represents a UPC, EAN or other standard product identifier other than an ASIN.
  2. Change the ProductIDType value so that it matches the type of value you provided in Step 1.
  3. Resubmit your inventory file.

To solve this error using XML data feeds:

  1. Locate the StandardProductID element for this SKU in your product data feed.
  2. Change the Value component of the StandardProductID element for this item so that it represents a UPC, EAN or other standard product identifier other than an ASIN.
  3. Change the Type component of the StandardProductID element for this item so that it matches the type of value you provided in Step 2.
  4. Resubmit your product data feed.

If you do not have access to an alternative StandardProductID, please contact us for further assistance.
