Selling automotive parts efficiently on Amazon

In this article, we provide information on how you can add vehicle compatibility information efficiently for your automotive parts listings on Amazon. When purchasing automotive parts, customers need to know what items are suitable to their vehicle; for this reason, below, we will outline the process for adding vehicle compatibility information to your listings. This information can help ensure higher conversion, higher sales and reduced compatibility-related returns.

Why is vehicle compatibility important?

Adding compatible vehicle data to your listings via Part Finder is a great way to ensure that customers are purchasing the part they are looking for. We highly recommend adding compatibility information to your listings for your search rankings to be optimal, which will turn into potential higher conversions and a better customer experience.

How to add compatibility information to your listings

a) Add information to a single listing

In the navigation bar in Seller Central or Vendor Central, click on Inventory and then on Manage Part Finder. Click on Add ASIN and follow the instructions step by step. Add the information using the pre-filled form.

b) Add information to several listings at the same time

i) Refer to the Master Vehicle List (MVL) to look up KTYPEs
To do this for multiple listings at the same time, you need to add compatibility information using the Master Vehicle List. The MVL is a data repository of vehicles that are currently operating in the region. It is now available to all selling partners selling automotive items on Amazon. The file provides information that will be transferred to our automotive parts compatibility tools.

The MVL also contains the unique KTYPE for each vehicle. Download a copy for all covered locales:
