The Easy Fix Template is an inventory file with a subset of
fields that highlight the missing information for certain SKUs. You can use the Easy Fix
Template to fix the listing quality alerts that are displayed in your seller account. You will
receive this file by e-mail only.
The Easy Fix Template is pre-filled with the SKUs in your
inventory that are missing important information (description, brand, and image). Provide the
missing information for the cells highlighted in yellow.
Note: The information in the Easy Fix Template may be up to
one week old, so you might find information for listings that have already been updated or
that no longer exist in your catalog.
For reference, the Easy Fix Template also includes
informative fields, like the ASIN and Product Title. These fields will not modify the
reference or title of your products, and existing data for your products won’t be affected
either. The template is a Consumer Electronics template; however, the category for your
products will not be updated.
In the Brand column, the highlighted cells might include a
brand hint. If brand information is available in the Amazon catalog, we will provide
this information as a suggestion.
