Uploading From Amazon inventory to Amazon Webstore

How do I upload brand new items from my Amazon inventory page to my Amazon Webstore?

  • Hello,

    The easiest way, if the item is listed on Amazon already is to push an update such as price/quantity/attribute (eg. launch date) change - by default any change from Amazon side will automatically copy the item onto the webstore.

    Other than that you would need to use a CSV file in order to upload it into the webstore end. Please note that amazon is using a different format (text tab delimited) so you will need to copy&paste all information into the CSV file .

    I hope this helps,

    Please let me know if you need more info on this

    Regards

  • I've spent the past few days looking at every canned ecommerce solution out there, and Webstore seems to fit my needs best. I would like to prepare my inventory spreadsheet BEFORE starting my free trial, so I can hit the ground running.

    Is there a sample spreadsheet available for me to use? Is the Marketplace one appropriate?

    Thanks,
    Fred

  • Hello,

    Marketplace flat file has a different format (text-tab delimited as opposed to webstore's CSV - comma separated values), however most values would be very similar on both marketplaces.

    You can also register for API service and use XML files instead:

    UK version: https://developer.amazonservices.co.u...

    I hope this helps,

    Andrew, could you please elaborate further? What do you mean by "pushing an update?" How do I do it? A web developer wants to upload products from my seller account inventory to my Amazon Webstore. Thanks.

  • Hey Edward,

    What I meant is that if you do any update to your inventory for example: by just changing the price by 0.01$ on Amazon you are creating a feed that will update webstore as well, change may be minor but it will actually 'refresh' all data on such item by overwriting the existing ones with the same values.

    Hence you can do an update that won't change anything in the visibile listing such as launch date change but from the back end it will completely update all values within such item. That's why I'm saying It's a good way to refresh the inventory in the database in case if you suspect something is stuck or not updating correctly.

    One note on this, if you want to make an upload from your Amazon side you need to remember about two things:

    1. Any update from Amazon will automatically be copied to webstore - you don't have the choice to exclude this when doing it from amazon side - system will automatically re-populate your change on ALL other marketplaces.

    2. If you do an update from Amazon side it will (by default) remove all category assignments from your webstore items (the same items you update on amazon side). In order to prevent that, you need to either use PartialUpdate value instead of Update or you need to utilize Platinum_Keywords attribute and populate it with your cat_XXXXX category numbers for each item.

    I hope this helps,

    Regards
