When automated fulfillable inventory removal is enabled, we’ll return, liquidate, or dispose of fulfillable inventory that's been in a fulfillment center for more than 365 days. In addition, units of ASINs that have not sold for six or more consecutive months and that have been in fulfillment centers for more than 180 days will be automatically removed.
There are two automated fulfillable inventory removal services that can prevent your inventory from incurring additional storage fees:
The following products are eligible for automated fulfillable inventory removal:
You’re opted in to the automated fulfillable inventory removal services by default. To check your status or update your settings, follow these steps:
On Automated fulfillable inventory settings, select Return and enter a return address to have your inventory returned to you. Select Dispose to have your inventory donated, recycled if eligible, or disposed of.
To liquidate your eligible inventory, select Liquidation. Units that are not eligible for liquidation are donated, recycled, or disposed of. To learn more about product eligibility, go to FBA Liquidations.
If you provide a return address on any Amazon automated removal service, we’ll return your inventory by default. If you don't configure your settings for liquidation or choose to opt out of the services, your inventory will be donated, recycled, or disposed of if no return address is provided.
To avoid removals or storage fees, you can actively manage older inventory and inventory that is not likely to sell.
To sell through older inventory, consider setting up a deal through Amazon Outlet. An outlet deal is a promotional offer with a minimum discount of 20%. For more information, go to About Amazon Outlet.
No. The updates that you make to your settings will only apply to automated fulfillable inventory removal.
