Beginning in Q4 of 2020, Amazon is implementing new requirements for clothing with an eye to improving customer experience and standardized sizing. The requirements are item type specific, and Amazon is rolling them out gradually. Zentail is currently making related updates to make it easy for you to make your data compliant.

Because the data requirements vary depending on the clothing type, please refer to the section below for the type of clothing you want to sell for information on making your product data compliant.

Multiple Clothing Types

Sweaters, Dresses, Coats, Tunics, Socks, Underpants, Sweatshirts & Pajamas

Be sure that you have each of these mandatory attributes (Target Gender, Age Range, and Size) and your Smart Type filled out with valid values, and Zentail will be able to infer the rest! Each of these attributes is available in QuickEdit and is importable and exportable, so it's easy to export your SKUs with the correct fields, make the edits to the download spreadsheet and import back into Zentail.

We've set up a QuickEdit view to help you get started! Refer to the Valid Values section below for more information.

Shirts

Mandatory attributes Target Gender and Age Range should be filled out in Zentail, along with Size. Size values can be numeric, alpha, or age range. Alternatively, shirts may be sized by Neck Size or Neck Size plus Sleeve Length. We strongly recommend including a Smart Type as well.

Each of these attributes is available in QuickEdit and is importable and exportable, so it's easy to export your SKUs with the correct fields, make the edits to the download spreadsheet and import right back into Zentail.

  • If you are using neck size and/or sleeve length, be sure to include a unit of measure, either IN or CM.
  • The neck and sleeve size values may be a single value or a range, indicated with a "-". Examples of valid values for neck are 12 IN, 12.5 IN, 16.5-17 IN. Examples of valid values for sleeve length are 27 IN, 40 IN, 38-39 IN.
