Fixing Suppressed Listings on Amazon

How to add back missing information on Amazon using the Listings Quality and Suppressed Listing Report

A suppressed listing means your offer of the product is no longer available on Amazon. Suppression can come from a multitude of factors. Missing information on an Amazon listing will lead to that ASIN being put into a Suppressed Status. This article will walk you through how to fix this. 

If Marketplace Management is unable to re-publish that listing, do not worry, as it is possible to add the missing information directly on Amazon Seller Central via an upload.

Fill in the Report File

In the Listings Quality and Suppressed Listing Report, file look for the Alert Type column and FieldName columns:

  • Alert type will tell you if your listing has product info missing
  • Field Name will tell you what product info is missing  

Navigate to the Corrected Value column in the Listings Quality and Suppressed Listing Report spreadsheet (highlighted in blue) and input the data that is specified missing by the Field Name.

For example, below we input a missing description by copying the description stored for that product in Marketplace Management and pasting it into the Corrected Value Column.
