Item reports are now enhanced with four new variant columns in the On-Request Item Report

Four new columns have been added to enhance item reports and make variant information available. The new variant columns include:

  • Variant Group ID: A unique ID created to identify all items in the variant group.
  • Primary Variant: Variant items selected as primary when the group was created.
  • Variant Grouping Attributes: Highlighting variants that vary by these attributes in the variant group.
  • Variant Grouping Values: Sharing all values assigned to the variant attributes.

Don’t forget: Order ID numbers are changing

Starting the week of April 25, we will be increasing the length of our order ID numbers. Order numbers are currently 13-digits long, but they will be expanding to 15-digits, and will always start with a “2” to make it easier for customers to manage and track. There are no required code changes or action needed by you, but please ensure there will be no limitations on your end to consume or display the new order IDs. Check out the Developer Center below to learn more.

It's time to sub On-Request Reports for Pre-Generated Item Reports

Starting end of April, sellers can access the following information through On-Request Reports:

  • Item Performance
  • Cancellation
  • Delivery Defect
  • Buy Box Reports
  • Return Overrides
  • Promo and CPA

Make sure you start using On-Request Reports as soon as possible, as the older Pre-Generated Item Report will no longer be available for use starting June 30, and we’re also decommissioning ALL Pre-Generated Reports on July 30.
