New product listing attributes required for new listings as of August 16

Announcement reposted from Amazon:

Effective August 16, 2023, 274 attributes for 200 product types will be required for new product listings. Go to Product type and attributes for the full list.

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

We periodically review listing requirements for the most popular product types to ensure listings contain relevant attribute information that will help customers make a buying decision.

All new listings for the affected product types will require valid attribute values or the product won’t be added to the catalog. This attribute information isn’t required for active listings.

If you have an inactive listing and want to publish it, go to Manage Inventory, filter for affected product types, and update the attributes.

To troubleshoot listing errors, go to Error code explanations.
