Stranded inventory report

This report shows a breakdown of units in your inventory that are in stranded status.

Stranded inventory is inventory in a fulfilment centre that does not have an active offer on Amazon.

Inventory can become stranded for a variety of reasons. For example, the listing for that product may have been suppressed or may have never been created, resulting in stored inventory that is accumulating storage fees but that can't be sold because the listing is not active.

Important: Amazon will notify you when you have stranded inventory. If you do not (or cannot) create a listing for your stranded inventory or order its removal within 30 days of this notice, it will be designated unsellable. You are required to remove unsellable units (which are "Unsuitable Units" as defined in the Amazon Services Business Solutions Agreement ) as described in our Required removals policy.

Field definitions

Field name Description
primary-action

Action needed to bring your inventory out of stranded status. The possible actions are:

  • Relist: For products that have been listed previously but do not have an active offer, click Add a Product in the Inventory drop-down menu to create an offer. If you see a message indicating that your product is already listed but needs to be edited, click the provided link to update your listing.
  • Create removal order: For products you no longer want to sell, go to the Manage FBA Inventory page, select the product and choose Create Removal Order from the drop-down menu on top.
  • Change to Fulfilled by Amazon: If you have an offer, but it is for a product that you fulfil yourself, none of your FBA inventory for that product will be available for sale. On your Manage Inventory page, select the product and click Change to Fulfilled by Amazon in the Action drop-down menu to enable FBA to pick, pack and ship those products.
  • Create a new listing: If you have FBA inventory of a product that has never been listed, create a listing for your SKU by clicking Add a Product in the Inventory drop-down menu.
Note: When relisting a product or creating a listing, the following information must match the units in your FBA inventory:
  • ASIN
  • Condition
  • Merchant SKU
If these fields don't match, the stranded inventory in the fulfilment centre won't be associated with the new listing.
