What is an Amazon Inventory Template?
In your Amazon API, you can find two basic steps where you need to add the product information: the "Build" and the "Attributes" steps. In the Build step, you fill in the mandatory basic information for all products, for example, the title, EAN code, and price. On the other hand, in the Attributes step you have to fill in the mandatory information that is required for that particular Amazon product category.
The Attributes step of the Amazon API in Channable is based on the Amazon inventory templates, which is an excel template composed of all attributes that you are allowed to send for that category, as well as all possible accepted values for these attributes. If you want to know more about a specific attribute or if you want to find the translation of a certain attribute you can check it in the respective category inventory template, by downloading it from your Amazon account.
How can I download the Inventory Template?
To download an Inventory Template you need to navigate to Catalogue > Add Products via Upload > Get Product Template:
- In step 1 select the category that has been set up in the Categories step in the Amazon API in Channable.
- In step 2 select the marketplaces you are currently selling on.
- In step 3 select "Advanced" as the template type and generate the template. This will provide you with an excel file in which you can find accepted values, descriptions, and translations of the attributes.
