Attention Professional sellers who use inventory templates (feeds) to list on Amazon.com: When you only want to update the prices and quantities of your listings, you can use Pricing and Inventory feeds to speed up processing time.
To create a Pricing and Inventory feed, just eliminate from your feed any product data that typically does not change (particularly Product, Relationship and Image information). Then upload that feed to Amazon using the Upload tool in your seller account.
Below are the fields required for creation of Pricing and Inventory feeds:
- sku, item-price, currency – this will update just your price (you can also submit sale prices in this feed)
- sku, quantity, leadtime-to-ship – this will update your quantity; leadtime-to-ship must be included if the item does not have the default 1-2 day leadtime-to-ship
You can maintain a separate feed that contains full product data that you can upload when that data changes.
