Inventory file templates for Business Sellers and Integrators

Overview

An Inventory File Template is a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet that contains multiple data columns for describing your products. Sellers and integrators use inventory file templates to upload listings to Amazon.

Most Inventory File Templates are designed for a specific product category. Additional templates are available to create or update listings in all categories, when the target products are already available in the Amazon catalogue.
