This article contains documentation that may help to create listings on Amazon marketplace, including attribute descriptions, accepted values, categorization, and more.

 

Inventory File Templates, Style Guides, Browse Tree Guides (BTG)

  • File templates help with accepted values for fields
  • Style guides help with optimizing specific product types
  • Browse Tree Guides help to categorize your products

Please note, GoDataFeed connects with the MWS API for feed submissions rather than the file templates found below. However, the file templates are often helpful to reference when setting up feeds. This means our feeds adhere to the accepted values for attributes shown in the XSDs which are sometimes different than the inventory file templates.
