In addition to being able to import your listings from Amazon, or create Amazon listings in Listing Mirror with the Amazon Add Offer option and template, you can also directly upload an Amazon Inventory File Template.
Uploading this file into Listing Mirror can be beneficial, depending on your workflow. By uploading the Inventory File Template into Amazon directly, which is what you'd typically do, the listings are available on Amazon a little faster and you'll wait a bit of time for these listings to be available in Listing Mirror. If you upload the Inventory File Template to Listing Mirror, we will still pass the information to Amazon for the listings to be created, but you get the added benefit of having the listing information available in Listing Mirror much faster, which will allow you to create the listing on multiple channels a bit quicker than the other method.
If you do want to upload the Inventory File Template directly to Listing Mirror, you'll follow these steps!
To get to the upload page, you'll go into your Amazon listings page. You can get there by either clicking the Amazon logo on the Manage Listings page:
Or you can click on the Listing tab in the black bar at the top of the Listing Mirror page, and then click on the Amazon integration you want to upload the file for:
Once you are in the Amazon Listings page, you'll click on the Amazon Action drop down toward the upper left, and select Create From Inventory File Template:
Once you're on the Inventory File Template page, you'll have a couple places you can go:
1. This link will take you to your Amazon Seller Central, specifically the page where you would download the Inventory File Template, if you don't have a blank one already saved.
2. This is where you will actually upload the file. You can either drag a file from your desktop or a folder and drop it into the field, or you can click on the field and it will bring up a menu for you to select a document.
3. Once you've uploaded an Inventory File Template, this link will take you to your history, which will show you The status of your past uploads, whether they have been processed or have been completed/failed.
Please note: Much like our Bulk Edit Templates, there are certain fields that you do not want to edit in the Inventory File Template. Removing title rows, or removing any pages in the spreadsheet, no matter how irrelevant they may seem, can cause the spreadsheet to not be recognized and fail.
Also, currently the only variation themes (or variation titles) we support via Inventory File Template upload are Size and Color. Those options are found in the variations section of the template, the specific field is outlined below:
