Individual sellers: This feature is only available to sellers with a Professional selling plan. Learn more by visiting Selling plan comparison.
Note: Macros in inventory file templates are no longer supported.

To create an inventory file, you need a copy of the Inventory Loader you plan to use. If you are listing items already in Amazon's catalogue, you can use the Inventory Loader template. Use the Bookloader if you do not have the ISBN, UPC or EAN for a book or the book is pre-ISBN, and we will match your book to our catalog based on the data you provide.

An Inventory Loader is a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet containing the columns needed to describe the products you are listing. It also contains definitions for each column. Modify or delete your existing inventory on Amazon by only submitting SKU, Price and Quantity in your upload.

Template

Inventory Loader

Upload your inventory using the Amazon tab-delimited format for all products.

Standard Book Loader

For books sellers, upload your book inventory or add new books to the Amazon catalog using the Standard Book tab-delimited format by Amazon.

Music Loader

To help you sell music on Amazon, we offer a specific tool to upload multiple listings at one time: the Music Loader. The Music Loader will either match your listing data to an existing product page in the Amazon catalogue or create a new product detail page if none exists.

Video Loader

The Video Loader will either match your listing data to an existing product page in the Amazon catalog or create a new product detail page if none exists. Learn more.

Price and Quantity

Use for updates to price or quantity only.

You can access the upload status report for your file by clicking the "View Your Upload Results" link that appears on the upload page for your type of text file after you upload a file.

Listing Loader Template

If you are listing items that are already in Amazon's catalog, you can use the Listing Loader tool. Listing Loader offers a simple way to upload your inventory on Amazon. It enables you to provide listing attributes rather than product attributes, which are required when you use product file templates. Learn more about Listing Loader.
