Reserved Inventory report

This report shows a breakdown of units in your inventory that are in reserved status. This tool can also help you find out more information about units that are in reserved status.

Inventory in the reserved status might be tied to a customer order in the process of being shipped between fulfillment centers, or set aside at a fulfillment center for additional processing. If your inventory is being shipped to another fulfillment center, it is still available for purchase with the message Back-ordered. Due in stock... and a date based on the estimated arrival at the fulfillment center.

The Reserved Inventory report provides real-time data about the number of reserved units in your inventory.

Note: Reserved quantity is not included in Available or Unsellable Quantities. The total number of units you have for a SKU in a shipment sent to a fulfillment center or in Amazon fulfillment centers equals to Available Quantity + Unsellable Quantity + Reserved Quantity + Inbound Quantity.

Reasons for Reserved status

Units can be in reserved status for the following reasons:

  • Customer Order: These units are used to fulfill customer orders.
  • FC Transfer: These units are being transferred from one fulfillment center to another to place the inventory closer to customers. Units in the FC Transfer status are available for customers to buy. However, customers might be shown a future ship date if no other units are available in the fulfillment centers for immediate fulfillment.
    Note: Transfers may take up to 22-25 days to complete, but in some circumstances (for example, delays due to Covid-19 restrictions, weather conditions, and so on), transfers may take longer and additional investigation may be required.
  • FC Processing: These units have been sidelined at the fulfillment center for additional processing, such as verification of item dimensions and weight, pending investigations, or pending removal orders. For more information regarding removal orders, go to:

    Remove inventory (overview)

Note: When inventory is being processed for transfer to another fulfillment center, those units might show up under both FC Transfer and FC Processing for a short amount of time. Units in FC Transfer are available for sale, but cannot be eligible for Prime delivery until they are transferred to destination fulfillment centers.
