Replenishment Alerts

Replenishment Alerts enable you to manage your inventory in Amazon's fulfilment centres without needing to constantly monitor each listing. You can set the alert quantity for individual items or groups of items. When the listing's fulfillable quantity reaches your setting, we notify you by sending you a Replenishment Alert e-mail.

Tips for setting replenishment alerts

When you select an alert quantity for a given product, select a quantity based on your average sales and the time it takes to order and ship stock to a fulfilment centre. For example, if it takes you two weeks to order and ship a product, and you sell about 100 units of that product in a week, it would be advisable to set the alert quantity to at least 300 units. When your fulfillable inventory for that product reaches 300 units in our fulfilment centres, we will notify you. This will give you three weeks to place an order with your vendors and send in a shipment to our fulfilment centre before your inventory is depleted.

Alternately, when you a select a weeks-of-cover threshold, you should select the number of weeks that it takes you to order and ship stock for that product to Amazon fulfilment centres.

Setting alerts

From the Inventory Amazon Fulfills page, check the listings you want to set Replenishment Alerts for. From the Apply to Selected pull-down menu, select "Set Replenishment Alerts" and click "Go."

Once at the Set Inventory Replenishment Alerts page, enter the threshold in the Alert Qty field. You can set thresholds independently for each item or set the same alert quantity for all selected listings.

Identifying replenishment alerts

You can identify listings with Replenishment Alerts from the Inventory Amazon Fulfills page. A gold bell will appear in the Fulfillable column next to the quantity. If the inventory has reached the replenishment alert quantity, the bell will turn red.
