Upload inventory using the Listing Loader

The Listing Loader is a template for uploading your inventory on Amazon for products that already exist in the Amazon catalog.

The Listing Loader lets you provide listing attributes without product attributes, which we require when using inventory file uploads.

The Listing Loader is similar to the Inventory Loader. We recommend the Inventory Loader for basic product matching. However, when multiple matches are found for a product, the Listing Loader might help you resolve the issue more easily.

Download the Listing Loader template.

Note: For products that do not exist in the Amazon catalog, first add the products using Add a Product.

Listing Loader features

Listing Loader provides the following functionality:

  • Match products in all categories you are eligible to sell using a single template.
