In this episode we’re talking about the upcoming Amazon Long Term Storage Fees. They are going to hit you on August 15, 2017 for any inventory that you’ve had in Amazon’s warehouses for 6+ months.
As of July 1, 2017, your aged units of inventory in our fulfillment centers will subject to the following fees, unless you submit a Removal Order request (or they sell) before August 15, 2017:
- $11.25 USD/cubic foot (six to 12 months)
- $22.50 USD/cubic foot (more than 12 months)
We recommend going to Amazon Seller Central > Inventory > Inventory Planning and reviewing your aged inventory. You can also see “Recommended Removal” reports in the Reports > Fulfillment area.
One new option for getting rid of excess inventory is Amazon’s new “LBA” or “Liquidation by Amazon”. Amazon will liquidate your inventory for you and pay you 90% of the proceeds. However, be advised that the typical liquidation price is around 10% of the “average selling price”.
