Ktype codes

There are a number of important points to consider when using Ktype codes to integrate your parts catalog into the Amazon PartFinder.

In order to integrate your products into the Amazon PartFinder, download the country-specific inventory file for Automotive Parts and Accessories or for Tires and Wheels, as applicable to your product .

Note: Flat files are the category-specific Excel files used to list products on the Amazon websites. When listing vehicle fitment specific products, use the correct inventory file for automotive parts and accessories or tyres and wheels depending on the fitment specific product selection you would like to list.

  1. Ktype codes are numeric vehicle fitment codes, each of which represents a specific vehicle.

    Ktype codes are based on the vehicle fitment standard TecDoc. You will find the respective columns in the Template tab and a definition of the data types in the Data Definition tab of the flat file for Automotive.

    • Vehicle Fitment Standard: Use this column to indicate to which database the fitment information relates to. If you are providing Ktype information, enter "TecDoc" in this column.
    • Vehicle Fitment Code: Use this attribute to indicate the linkages (i.e. the Ktype codes) that the product fits. Provide all information for one SKU in one line (Ktype codes can be entered in a comma-separated format in one line.)
    Attribute Definition Example
    Vehicle Fitment Code (vehicle_fitment_code) Values indicate which vehicles are compatible with the product 34674,1134,545,73412
    Vehicle Fitment Standard (vehicle_fitment_standard) Value indicates to which data-base the "Vehicle Fitment Code" provided relate to TecDoc
  2. Provide the proper manufacturer key attribute values for the attributes Brand and Part Number to ensure a successful integration of your parts catalog data with the TecDoc vehicle table. Make sure not to change the format as set by the manufacturer of either attribute (i.e. spaces or special characters as used by the manufacturer must be kept).
    Attribute Definition Example
    Brand (brand_name) Brand name of the product (manufacturer assigned) SKF
    Part Number (part_number) Manufacturer's part number for the product. For most products, this will be identical to the model number; however, some manufacturers distinguish part number from model number VKPC 88828
Note: The TecDoc Alliance may require a licensing fee for sellers to use TecDoc Ktypes. Please contact the TecDoc Alliance for more information.
Note: Fitment information is not automatically replicated across marketplaces and therefore needs to be uploaded for each marketplace individually.
