Change a Product’s Category

When a product is created in the wrong category, you will generally need to contact Seller Support to correct it. In some cases, sellers can change the category themselves.

Sellers with a professional selling plan can submit a category change on a product using an inventory file template on Add a Product via Upload. The category change will only occur if you are winning the Buy Box for the detail page or the following are true:

  • The product is part of a brand that you have enrolled in the Amazon Brand Registry.
  • The ASIN of the product is registered under your registered brand.
  • You are approved to sell in the category that you are requesting to change it to.

  1. Go to Templates for Specific Categories to select the appropriate inventory file template.
  2. Enter your product information and include the new category in the Item Type Keyword field.
  3. Upload the file by going to the Add a Product via Upload page.

To report the incorrect categorization of products to Seller Support, request a product page fix and provide details on the category change needed. We will review your proposed changes and update the product page as needed.
