Amazon Introduces New Vendor Catalog Upload Feature, GXS

By Tinuiti Team

Amazon recently introduced a new catalog upload function available to vendors located in the Add Items section of the Vendor Central catalog.

Almost all large brands that sell to department stores or big box retailers are required to purchase a SaaS platform to host their catalog of products from a company called GXS (formerly known as Inovis).

“Prior, Amazon had been extra complicated – not allowing vendors to supply a catalog through GXS or even EDI feeds – until now.”

If a vendor uses GXS (which Amazon still calls Inovis) they now have the capability to upload items directly from their GXS catalog (as seen below):


So what does Amazon GXS mean for vendors?
