30 Days Limit for Stranded Inventory – May 30, 2019

Posted by Jimi Patel | March 22, 2021

Starting June 10, 2019, in accordance with FBA policy, inventory that is stranded for an extended period will be classified as unsellable and must be removed from Amazon fulfillment centers.

If your inventory is stranded, we will notify you by email. If you don’t activate your listing or create a removal order within 30 days of receiving this email, your inventory will be classified as unsellable. For more information, see the stranded reason table on Resolve stranded inventory issues.

Inventory classified as unsellable cannot be converted back to sellable. It must be removed from fulfillment centers or it will be disposed of at your cost after 30 days.

On Fix stranded inventory the Date of the stranded event column tells you when the inventory was stranded. The Date classified as unsellable column states when listings will change to unsellable.

Inventory stranded for the following reasons does not require removal.
Future listing sell date
Listing closed
Listing closed and inventory error
Under hazmat review
Merchant fulfilled
Merchant fulfilled (including dangerous goods information required)
