Batch Upload the Products by Using Amazon New Features
After the end of November, I do not know if everyone has received this mail from Amazon.
Kindly note that in order to streamline the seller listing experience, Amazon has introduced Custom Templates. Amazon has migrated from Flat Files to Customer Template and therefore request you to use only Custom Temlates for any new item updates or creation.
Some sellers even think it is a fraudulent email, in fact, it is not. Instead, the batch upload tools in the Amazon backend "Download an Inventory File" has been updated, which was originally Flat Files, now forces the sellers use the Custom Templates.
With this new feature, even iterms in different categories can be done in the same file. Do not need to be divided into multiple files to fill up and upload because of different product categories.
In addition, the new template also incorporates Browse Node (Browse Node) information, do not need to find another node information in the Browse Tree Guide.
How to use the new features?

Search directly keyword or product name in the search field.
