Hello. I’m trying to find out how frequently Amazon recalculates Maximum Inventory Level Allowed?
We were running very low on stock with our last order due to shipping delays and decided to slow down our sales velocity to avoid running out of stock completely. Once our shipment was finally checked in at Amazon early in July, we re-started our PPC and other initiatives to reignite our sales. Naturally, that took a couple of weeks but we are now moving about XX units per day.
Unfortunately, our Max Inventory Level allowed is currently XXX units. At our current sales velocity, that means we will run out of stock every 11 days. Our lead time with our supplier is 90 days. As such, we will have to engage a 3rd party logistics to warehouse larger shipments and then feed small and frequent orders to Amazon. However, even with that plan, we will likely run out of stock on a regular basis since check-in time is longer than our 11-day in stock time.
Our only hope is to increase our Maximum Inventory Level Allowed, so…
- How often and when is Maximum Inventory Level Allowed re-calculated?
- Considering that consistently running out of stock will negatively impact every re-calculation of Max Inventory Level Allowed, is there anything I’m missing to break out of this profit-limiting loop?
Thanks in advance!
