Manage Excess Inventory

Policies and Requirements Features and Fees Managing FBA Inventory Business Analytics Resources
This report helps you identify listings that have greater than 90 days of supply or your max desired days of supply (if specified).

This report provides a current snapshot of data from the Manage Excess Inventory page. The Manage Excess Inventory page helps you quickly identify listings that may have excess inventory and review relevant information to take the appropriate action. The page highlights factors that may be limiting sales of your products and provides access to solutions that you can use to sell your inventory.

Products are identified as having potential excess inventory if:

  • they have greater than 90 days of supply (or your maximum desired days of supply, if specified); and
  • at least one unit of inventory is more than 90 days old.

Your products with inventory in FBA that meet this criteria are shown on the Manage Excess Inventory page and on this report.

The following columns are available in this report:
