Finding Amazon Templates for Specific Categories (Flat Files)

To list products through Solid Commerce that do not exist on Amazon, you need to download a Flat File from your Amazon account.

If the products you want to list already exist on Amazon, you don't need a Flat File. For more info, please see Listing a Product That Exists in Amazon's Catalog Using a Spreadsheet.
