Restock limits are set per storage type, based on your past and forecasted sales, allowing you to allocate these limits across your ASINs. You can view your restock limits by storage type and maximum shipment quantity from Inventory performance or Shipping Queue, by expanding your restock limits monitor at the bottom of the page. Your account will no longer be subject to ASIN-level quantity limits.
We are continuously improving our policies to improve the efficiency of our fulfillment network and to better receive your products. We believe that restock limits provide better flexibility to allocate your limits and manage the inventory that you send to Amazon.
Go to your restock limits monitor and review your maximum shipment quantity by storage type. This can be used across your ASINs based on your choice and you will no longer be subject to ASIN-level quantity limits.
Your maximum shipment quantity equals the maximum inventory level allowed minus utilization.
Utilization counts against your maximum inventory level and helps determine your maximum shipment quantity. Utilization includes your current inventory at Amazon and all incoming shipments, including your shipments in Working, In transit, and Receiving status. Inventory pending removals and any reserved inventory are not included in the utilization calculation. To view the utilization number by sort type, go to your restock limits monitor and review your utilization by storage type.
We continually assess our network capacity to find opportunities to increase restock limits and best support your business. You can see your most up-to-date limits by expanding your restock limits monitor at the bottom of the Inventory performance dashboard. We will update restock limits regularly.
