EDIT: Turns out my first stab at this was close but not perfectly correct. This original post has now been amended.
The value that goes into item type is picked from a spreadsheet that Amazon supplies called a Browse Node Tree or a BTG for short.
Each product type has its own BTG. They can be downloaded from here https://sellercentral.amazon.com/gp/help/help-page.html/ref=ag_1661_cont_scsearch?ie=UTF8&itemID=1661&language=en_US You are looking for the Toys & Games file.
On the second tab of the file is a table. Use find to find a keyword in the item you are trying to push to Amazon. in your case I did a find for train and got this part of the table:
The values Amazon are looking for are the item_type_keywords. So for a train freight car you need to enter the code
You can then enter this value one of several ways. You can either create a field in PAM called browse nodes or you can enter the value as an override for the department/ category in question.
Because of the way your store is organised you might be better off going with the mapping field in PAM. Follow these steps:
- Create a string attribute in Nsc PAM called AMZItemType;
- Populate this field with values from the BTG. I would only do the fields for the products that are suppressed;
- Map it in NscSync to a product marketplace field (I suggest marketplace field 3);
- Map marketplace field 3 to product/itemtype in the Amazon Data Mappings tab. I would do this at store level.
If you need help with any of the mappings just yell!
