For the bulk update of Inventories, sellers should use “Inventory Update Feeds”. The following types of inventory update feeds are available:
- Bulk Item Inventory Update (feedType=inventory)
- MultiNode Bulk Inventory Update (feedType=DSV_INVENTORY) (BETA)
“Bulk Item Inventory Update” feed can be used to update the inventory of multiple Items in one fulfillment center (ship node). Specifying the fulfillment center (ship node) is mandatory.
The “MultiNode Bulk Inventory Update” feed can be used to update the inventory of multiple items across multiple fulfillment centers (ship nodes). Fulfillment centers (ship nodes) have to be specified in the body of the request. Shipnodes are mandatory parameters in the body of the request, if it’s not specified, the feed will error out.
Once the DSV submits the bulk item inventory update feed, the DSV gets a feed id as a response to the API call. The DSV can call feed status API (DSV Feed item status API link), using the feed id to check the progress of the submitted feed. The feed status APIs show the line Item level status of the inventory update in the submitted feed. Additionally, the DSV can use “All feed statuses API” (DSV All feed statuses API ) to view the status of all the feeds submitted by the seller.
“Bulk Inventory Update Feed” APIs are throttled. The “Default” throttling information can be found here.
