Seasonal restrictions on meltable inventory start April 15, 2022

by News_Amazon

Meltable inventory will not be fulfilled or accepted at Amazon fulfillment centers from April 15 to October 15, 2022. During this period, meltable inventory will be removed and disposed of for a fee. To avoid removal fees, submit removal orders for meltable inventory before April 15.

"Meltable" refers to all heat-sensitive products, including but not limited to chocolate, gummies, and select jelly- and wax-based products. To protect product integrity during storage and shipping, products in fulfillment centers must be able to withstand summer temperatures ranging from 75 to 155 degrees Fahrenheit.

An initial meltable list will be provided for your convenience on Seller Central by March 1, 2022.

To request exemption of a product from this category, send us a detailed letter on manufacturer letterhead.

For more information, go to Meltable FBA inventory.

Hello @Amazon_News

Question - is the programming (that will be used to select which meltable inventory ASINs will be brought down) going to be given the intelligence to determine which listing offer is FBA vs FBM?

Some sellers (FBM) may store and ship meltable items appropriately and wonder if their offer will be forced from a detail page because the item is also housed as an FBA product by some other seller.

Inquiring minds would like to know.
Thank you

anyone know if there’s some way via SP-API to determine if a product qualifies as meltable? The FBA Eligibility API doesn’t appear to (although that may change in April? There’s not a specific reason code for it), so it looks like lacking an attribute for it, the only way to tell is by trying to ship it in.

At 155 degrees Fahrenheit, a lot of solid products might fit Amazon’s definition of “meltable”

Typical of Amazon to have all meltables removed from FBA 2 days prior to Easter.

Why couldn’t they wait a few days? Or even a week to accommodate Orthodox Easter which is the following Sunday.
