Easy Fix Template

The Easy Fix Template is an inventory file with a subset of fields that highlight the missing information for certain SKUs. You can use the Easy Fix Template to fix the listing quality alerts that are displayed in your seller account. You will receive this file by email only.

The Easy Fix Template is pre-filled with the SKUs in your inventory that are missing important information (description, brand, and image). Provide the missing information for the cells highlighted in yellow.

Note: The information in the Easy Fix Template may be up to one week old, so you might find information for listings that have already been updated or that no longer exist in your catalogue.

For reference, the Easy Fix Template also includes informational fields, such as the ASIN and Product Title. These fields will not modify the reference or title of your products, and existing data for your products won’t be affected either. The template is a Consumer Electronics template; however, the category for your products will not be updated.

In the Brand column, the highlighted cells might include a brand hint. If brand information is available in the Amazon catalogue, we will provide this information as a suggestion.

Using the Easy Fix Template

Open the Easy Fix Template using a spreadsheet program, and provide information for the fields highlighted in yellow.

To save your completed Easy Fix Template:

  1. In your spreadsheet program, on the File menu, click Save As.

    2. Browse to the location where you would like to save the file.
    3. Provide a name for the file.
    4. Click Save.
  3. If you receive a warning that the selected file format (tab delimited) does not support workbooks containing multiple worksheets, click Yes.

To upload your completed Easy Fix Template:

  1. Log in to your seller account.
  2. Under Inventory, click Add Products via Upload.
  3. On the Add Products via Upload page, in the Upload inventory files section, select Inventory Files for non-Media Categories from the drop-down list.
  4. Next to the Locate your inventory file to upload text box, click Browse to select the tab-delimited text file (*.txt) you created earlier.

    Note: You can also upload the Easy Fix Template using AMTU or MWS. Make sure you save the file as a tab delimited file. If you receive a warning message about the additional fields in your inventory file, please ignore. Your file will still be processed correctly. The file will be uploaded to your inventory and the products will be updated with the information provided.

Note: Make sure you backfill your inventory data with the information that you provided in the Easy Fix Template. If you do not do this, any future uploads that you submit could erase the data that you provided with this file. Alternatively, you can avoid overriding data by setting the update-delete attribute to PartialUpdate for future uploads.
