January 2022 - "Material Composition" switches to "Fabric Type" 

  • To sum up

The attribute "Material Composition" will be replaced by the attribute "Fabric Type" for the new offers AND for existing offers.

  • What you have to do in Lengow
  • Original message

What is changing?
Amazon is replacing the Material Composition attribute with the Fabric Type attribute. Previously, both the Material Composition and Fabric Type attributes were available to use when listing products. We are simplifying the listing experience by combining them into a single attribute (fabric_type) as the attribute for composition of material.

This brings changes to

Attribute unification: New listings must be submitted with material composition values in fabric_type.
Attribute validation: The values submitted must be valid, and in the proper structure.
For existing listings, Amazon will copy values from material_composition to fabric_type. This change doesn't impact variation themes.

In XSDs the attribute (fabric_type) can be filled using either FabricType or MaterialandFabric.

When will the changes take place?
The change will happen in phases for XSDs:

Phase 1:

Starts on 13th December 2021.
Product Types: SKIRT, SHORTS, BRA.
Marketplace: US and Spain.
Phase 2:

Starts on 10th January 2021.
Product Types: As below.
Marketplace: As below.
Note: For 1 by 1 and inventory file templates, the changes will start as follows:

Attribute unification will start on 4th November 2021.
Attribute validation will start from 13th December 2021 onwards, same as XSDs.
The date communicated earlier for both changes was 20th August 2021.
