Classify your products using Browse Tree Guides

Amazon customers find products through search and browse. When customers browse, they can further refine their search by choosing specific product categories and subcategories.

You can use the Product Classifier or a Browse Tree Guide (BTG) to help you identify the correct categories for your products.

A Browse Tree Guide is a category-specific document that provides unique numbers and keywords that are associated with a certain browse path on Amazon. You can use this information to assign your products to specific categories and subcategories.

To use a Browse Tree Guide:

  1. Go to Inventory File Templates and download the appropriate Browse Tree Guide.
  2. Follow the instructions in the guide and choose the categories and subcategories for your products. Use the corresponding browse node IDs when you upload your inventory template file.

Browse Tree Guides

Browse Tree Guides (BTGs) are category-specific documents that provide the unique numbers (browse node IDs) you use to create links within your Seller Profile. Browse node IDs take advantage of the browse structure developed by Amazon.

Browse node IDs are values supplied by sellers to determine where listings appear in the Amazon catalogue. If this information is missing or is incorrect, buyers may have difficulty finding, comparing and purchasing your listings. This could affect your sales on Amazon.

Some categories require pre-approval before you can list items for sale. For more information, see Categories Requiring Approval.

Product Classifier

The Product Classifier tool replaces the BTGs. You can use the Product Classifier to browse and search for the classifications in your catalogue. See Using the Product Classifier.

For refinement fields and valid values, continue to refer to your category’s BTG.
