Upload your inventory file

When your bulk inventory file is complete, upload it by going to the Add Products via Upload page.

Individual sellers: This feature is only available to sellers with a Professional selling plan. Learn more by visiting Selling plan comparison.

After you build or modify your inventory file, you are ready to upload the tab-delimited text (.txt) file. For more information, see Add your product information to an inventory file and Modify Your Inventory File.

Follow these steps to upload the file:


  1. On the Inventory link, click Add Products via Upload.
  2. Click Upload your Inventory File tab.
  3. In Upload File box, drag and drop the inventory file (You could click Browse files instead). When file is selected, status bar will load from 0 to 100%, validating the file.
    Note: Validation completed status does not finish upload process.

    Once file validation is complete, File type is auto-detected for most cases, except for inventory loader and non-Amazon files. If the File type is not auto-selected, use the drop-down menu to select your file type.

  4. If needed, check the Email alert box.
  5. Every time you upload a text file, our system creates and posts a processing report with specific errors, if any, encountered during processing. Choose the option for the format of the report in Processing Report (Output) Format section.
  6. After you select your file, click Upload.
  7. When you upload your file, a status box confirms that your file has been received.

Every time you upload a text file, our system creates and posts a processing report with specific errors, if any, encountered during processing.

The File Upload Status displays the date, time, batch ID, status, and results of your most recent upload. If your inventory file upload has not completed processing, the Status/Results column shows the following information:

  • Status: In Progress
  • Number of records processed from this upload: 0
  • Number of records that were activated: 0
  • Number of records with errors: 0

You can use the Refresh button to see the latest results. After your file is processed, the Status/Results column shows updated information, along with the Actions available.

If any products are not activated due to errors, click the View Processing Report option to download the associated processing report. Use this report to diagnose and correct errors in the file you uploaded. When you are ready to upload the edited file, click the Return to Upload page link, and re-upload your file. Go to Review Processing Reports to learn more.
