Classify your products with Product Classifier

Note: This feature is available to sellers with Professional selling plans.

Amazon uses values provided by sellers to determine where listings appear in the Amazon catalog. If this information is missing or incorrect, customers will have a difficult time finding, comparing, and purchasing your products.

Note: There is a limitation in the customized inventory file templates identified in the Product Classifier compared to category-specific inventory file. These templates contain only those attributes that are deemed essential to improve the customer experience. See the table below.
Attributes Customized inventory file template Category-specific inventory file
Fulfillment (dimension and weight) Not Available Available
Shipping template Not Available Available
Attributes in "Extra" section in Category-specific inventory file Not Available Available
