Manage Inventory Health combines the best of the Manage Excess Inventory and Inventory Age pages, giving you the ability to manage your excess and aged inventory in one place and use a variety of metrics to help you to make decisions about repricing, advertising, or removals. This page can help you to optimise your inventory within your storage or restock limits, reduce costs, and improve your Inventory Performance Index (IPI) .
Manage Inventory Health features
The Manage Inventory Health page offers many features to help you to make the informed decisions about your excess and aged inventory.
Customise your metrics : Click Table preferences on the top right of the page among metrics across sales, fees, pricing, and excess and aged inventory, and to view units that are in working, shipped or receiving status. These metrics are designed to help you to make better informed decisions about your inventory.
Learn about the metrics: Hover over the "i" icon for each metric to learn the definition and other important information.
Sort the data: Metrics that can be sorted in ascending or descending order appear in bold. Click the metric name to sort the column.
Filter for inventory similarities: Choose among multiple filters to group products with similar inventory characteristics, including inventory age, storage type, and product condition. These filters can make it easier to assess recommendations and take action.
Sort by inventory age: Choose an inventory age range from the Sort inventory age drop-down menu in the filter bar. Then click the up or down arrow in the Inventory age column.
View up to 250 ASINs per page: Spend less time clicking through multiple pages to review your products’ inventory health by changing your default product quantity per page. Use the drop-down menu at the bottom of the page to choose the number of products that you want to see.
Search for similar products to evaluate inventory performance: Use the Search feature to find items that have similar product characteristics, for example, "blue" or "12-pack". You can then sort, filter and act on these items.
Create a single or bulk removal order: Select the checkbox to the left of each product that you want to remove, then open the drop-down menu for bulk action and select Create removal order above the Recommendations column. Your inventory will be entered automatically into the removal order workflow. You can bulk remove up to 50 products at a time.
How can Manage Inventory Health help
Avoid aged inventory and reduce storage costs: We recommend maintaining enough inventory to cover 30 to 60 days of your expected sales over the same time period. FBA sell-through is a good metric to help you to maintain this level of cover. Aim to maintain at least a 2.0+ sell-through on your products.
Frequently Asked Questions
Which units are shown in the Inventory age column view?
The Inventory age column includes available plus reserved units minus units that are pending removal or liquidation.
What is the estimated long term storage fee?
Inventory that has been in a fulfilment centre for 180 days or more is subject to a long term storage fee. The fee is assessed on the 30th of each month. Inventory age shows the number of units that would be subject to the long term storage fee and the estimated fee amount as of the next charge date, assuming no further sales. For more information, please go to FBA Long Term Storage Fees.
Why are my sales summary amounts and units different from my sales on the Orders detail page?
Manage Inventory Health shows shipped units, and the orders detail page shows ordered units. Manage Inventory Health shipped-units data relies on sources that cause a one-day delay, whereas orders detail data is in real time.
Why is my total storage volume by storage type in the Inventory Age report different from my storage type usage (aka storage volume) in my storage monitor on the Inventory Performance dashboard?
Storage volume in the Inventory Age report equals the available inventory. Storage type usage shown on your storage monitor equals the available inventory plus unfulfillable and reserved units minus units that are pending removal or liquidation.
