AMS Keywords - can't find how to "bulk import"

I thought I'd give Amazon Marketing Services a go. I'm planning a "Sponsored Product" campaign, choosing my own keywords. According to AMS I can upload a spreadsheet with keywords ("bulk import" as AMS calls it.) However, I can find no link to do this! When I go to the "add my own keywords page" there is only a box to type in all the keywords. Anyone know where I can upload the keywords spreadsheet? Thanks!!!

No - but when you first start the ad you'll see a bunch of words. I change the bid price and tell it to add all. That may be what they mean. ... I then go thru what was added and remove a few.

Note that at the top area there is also an area to add your own keywords. I click that, change the price on words to add and add more by typing them in.

Well, that is the crux of my problem. AMS says I can upload a spreadsheet. I see no link to do so. I don't want to retype everything (lots of keywords) and create separate campaigns when different keywords have different bids. With the spreadsheet I should not have to do that.

I know you can copy and paste your keywords direct from your spreadsheet into the Add Keywords box, the issue would be then having to set individual bids for each word. I'd like to know if there is a way of importing a spreadsheet with bids already set in a cell

Where did you see that? You can download a spreadsheet of your keyword data, but AFAIK, there's no way to upload one.

Maybe it's a recent development and they haven't pushed it out to everyone yet.
