Invoice by Amazon SKU Management file

All eligible SKUs in your inventory are opted into the Invoice by Amazon programme upon enrolment by default. The Invoice by Amazon SKU Management file allows you to opt out specific SKUs in your inventory from the Invoice by Amazon programme. Additionally, you can also use this file to opt back in SKUs that were opted out of the programme previously. The file is not marketplace-specific and will opt-out/opt-in SKUs across all marketplaces in which Invoice by Amazon programme is supported (currently UK, DE, FR, IT and ES)

You can download the latest version of the file from the Inventory File Templates Help page.

Required fields

The uploaded file must be populated with the SKU field and the isIBA field, which indicates whether you want to opt out or opt in the SKU.

  • SKU: Stock Keeping Unit is used to track inventory. A SKU can be any alpha-numeric string. Each SKU you submit in your file must be unique to an individual product in your existing listings; do not submit duplicate SKUs. Submit your SKU exactly as it appears in your Amazon inventory listings.
  • isIBA: This a flag denoting whether you want the SKU to be a part of the Invoice by Amazon programme. This field should be set accordingly.
    • false: If you want the SKU to be opted out of the Invoice by Amazon programme
    • true: If you want the SKU to be opted in to the Invoice by Amazon programme
