Listing Loader or Inventory Loader is one of the less talked about tool on Amazon. It will help you add products already listed on Amazon, in bulk. After learning How to add products on Amazon where we talked in detail about single and bulk listing, this post is an extension to it.
In this post, I will explain the listing loader by taking an example of Books as a category, since most of the products from this category are already listed on Amazon. Whenever a new seller tries to add books using the usual bulk upload method, the system rejects the file and asks the seller to either list using single listing or bulk listing using the listing loader. Let’s get started!
