Creating an import shadows template

This table will define the columns in an import shadows template. We will show how to import shadows as well as un-shadow products.

Column Header


Parent SKU

Enter the main SKU of the product.

Shadow SKU

Enter the alternate SKU (e.g., for another ASIN, or for a product from another company). Existing Product IDs in your catalog entered under this column will be linked to parents as shadow. Product IDs that do not exist in your catalog will be created and link to the defined parent as a shadow.

Company ID (optional)

Enter the company the shadow is associated with. You do not need to select the company associated with the shadow from the Company dropdown.

Fulfilled By (optional)

Enter either Amazon or Merchant.

Action (optional)

To bulk-unshadow products, enter this exact text for every product to unshadow: _REMOVE_SHADOW_. This action will unlink a shadow sku from a shadow parent.
