Amazon Category Taxonomy

The Amazon Category Taxonomy has over ten thousand categories. Items can be listed in open categories as well as categories requiring approval. There are more than 20 categories available for open listing. Non-open categories are only available to sellers with a Professional Selling Plan. Amazon proves a convenient search tool called BTG, Browse Tree Guide, in which a product category can be found by typing in several product keywords. Amazon’s product categories have a hierarchical structure, making a search for a broader category able to be narrowed down to a more specific sub-category.
