Changes to required attributes for product listings

Announcement reposted from Amazon:

We’re updating the Add Products and Add Products via Upload tools in Seller Central to ensure that listings contain relevant product attributes.

Providing attribute information can help increase sales by making it easier for customers to find product information that improves their purchase decisions.

Over the coming weeks, you may notice the following changes when you create or edit a product listing:

  • Some optional attributes will become required.
  • Some required attributes will become optional.
  • Some attributes will be removed.

New listings, and existing listings that you edit, won’t be added to the catalog until you provide all required attributes in the ‘Add Products’ or ‘Add Products via Upload’ tools.

Existing listings won’t be impacted by required attribute changes until you choose to edit them.

For more information, including a regularly updated list of required attributes, go to Updated attributes within the Add Products and Add Products via Upload interface.
