In this article, we will be discussing the Fashion Category product upload using excel file. Amazon.in has a wide variety of product categories that help the seller to exactly list products.
Using these distinct categories a seller can add multiple product variety to his/her catalogue and improve their daily sales.
Fashion Industry has now covered almost 45%-50% of the e-commerce market. Now people prefer buying online rather than going shop to shop. It is one of the fastest moving categories on Amazon.in.
