The Amazon Flat File – if you’re like the majority of Amazon sellers, you might not be aware of its existence. Or you may have encountered it once or twice while browsing your seller central account – but perhaps you have no idea what it’s for. Whatever the case may be, if you haven’t been taking advantage of this feature – you are missing out.
Flat files can be intimidating at first glance – after all, it’s a spreadsheet with all your listing data and a bunch of other sections that look like gibberish to the untrained eye. But if you could get past the intimidation, you’ll be surprised – because Amazon flat files are equipped with a smorgasbord of features that are designed to make your life easier as an Amazon seller. This is what we discovered in Amy’s recent chat with Vanessa Hung of Online Seller Solutions, who gave a quick overview and tutorial on Amazon flat files.
By using flat files, you can edit multiple listings in just one go, troubleshoot mysterious listing errors, reduce your visits to seller support, and so much more. Trust us – this is a jaw-dropping discovery. And the best part? Flat files are available to all brand-registered Amazon sellers, so if that’s you – you can try going through your own flat files as you play the video.
