Overview of inventory report

Inventory reports are snapshots of your listing information on Amazon. The reports show the items you have listed on Amazon at the time the report is run.

Since customers can purchase your products at any time, the quantities in an inventory report are at best a spot check of your saleable inventory. It may be out of date almost as soon you request it. To reconcile your inventory levels, compare your Amazon orders and inventory reports to your own inventory records.

Types of reports

Inventory Report

This report is a summary of the products that you have available for sale to buyers on Amazon. The report provides the SKU, price, quantity, and ASIN for each of your current offers.

You can use the Inventory Report to reconcile your Amazon listings with your available stock and your own records. This is a good way to check the accuracy of your own systems.

Use the Inventory Report if you have more than 50,000 open listings. To maintain fair usage of Amazon's system, do not request more than four Inventory Reports per day. If you have more than 500,000 listings, do not request more than one inventory report per day.

For more information, see How to read an inventory report.

Open Listings Report

This report contains any current merchant-fulfilled open listings available for purchase at the time you request the report. Amazon-fulfilled listings are not included in this report. You can modify and update listings in the spreadsheet, and then upload it using the Inventory Loader.

Open Listings Lite and Open Listings Liter Reports

These are scaled-down versions of the standard Open Listings Reports, for quickly updating your inventory. The fields for each report are as follows:

  • Open Listings Lite Report
    • seller-sku
    • quantity
    • price
    • product ID
  • Open Listings Liter Report
    • seller-sku
    • quantity

Active Listings Report

This report provides a snapshot of all the products you have listed on Amazon at the time the report is run. This report includes all of your product listings, including those with zero (0) quantity. It also provides you with information about the products your listings are matched to on Amazon, including the product title and product identifier.

In most cases, the ASIN is returned as the product-id for the listing, but the product-id may also be the industry standard identifier, such as the ISBN, UPC, or EAN.

The Active Listings Report includes details about each listing, including condition, item-note, and BMVD shipping settings. If you are enrolled in Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA), the report includes an additional column for the fulfillment channel: seller fulfilled or Amazon fulfilled.

This report allows for easy restocking by showing SKUs with zero (0) inventory. If you continue to sell those items, you can restock your listings without resubmitting product data for the SKU or creating a new SKU. If you don't expect to offer the item again and want to eliminate the SKU from your report, you can delete it via the Manage Inventory tool or by using an inventory file upload.

You can use the Active Listings Report if you have up to 50,000 listings. If you have more than 50,000 listings, you must use the Inventory Report.

For more information, see How to Read an Active Listings Report.

Inactive Listings Report

This report is similar to the Active Listings Report, except it provides a snapshot of all products that are inactive. This includes listings that have zero (0) quantity, listings that are blocked, listings that are suppressed, listings that are not yet opened, and listings that are past their sale end date.

The columns included are the same as the Active Listings Report, as referenced here: How to Read an Active Listings Report.

All Listings Report

This report is similar to the Active Listings Report, except it provides a snapshot of all products for a specific merchant. This report includes listings that are active, inactive, and incomplete.

The columns included are the same as the Active Listings Report, as referenced here: How to Read an Active Listings Report.

Referral Fee Preview Report

This report contains information about listings available for purchase at the time you request the report. For each listing, the report provides the estimated referral fee based on your current listed item price and does not account for shipping or gift wrap charges applied at the time of purchase.

For more information, see How to Read a Referral Fee Preview Report.

Canceled Listings Report

This report contains all listings that Amazon has canceled. It does not include items that are sold out, purged with Inventory Loader, or canceled by the seller.

Sold Listings Report

This report contains any items sold on Amazon.

Amazon Fulfilled Inventory Report

You will see this report option only if you use Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA). The report provides a near-real-time snapshot of your FBA inventory. If you offer items on multiple sales channels, it can help you make quick decisions about updating inventory quantities or removing listings from Amazon.

Listing Quality and Suppressed Listing Report

This report covers those of your listings that have listing quality errors. If the errors are severe enough, the listing will be suppressed (hidden) from search and browse until you fix it. For more information, see Enhance your Listings and Suppressed Listings.
