Stranded inventory required removals

The Amazon Services Business Solutions Agreement requires that you remove all “unsuitable units” from Amazon fulfilment centres. If your inventory remains stranded, you will get an email notification from Amazon.

Important: Inventory that remains stranded will be returned or disposed of 30 days after this notification. If you have enabled Amazon to accelerate automatic removal of stranded units, those units may be removed more quickly. To customize your automatic removal settings, go to Fix stranded inventory and click Edit automatic-action settings.

Stranded inventory units with active offers will not be automatically removed. For more information, go to Resolve stranded inventory issues.

The following stranded reasons are not subject to required removals at this time:

  • Future listing sell date
  • Under hazardous products review

Note: On Fix stranded inventory, the Date of stranded event column tells you when the inventory was stranded. The Auto-removal date column tells you when the inventory is scheduled for removal.

Delaying automatic removal

If you need more time to fix stranded inventory, you can select Delay removal for 30 days from the drop-down menu to the right of the listing on Fix stranded inventory.

Note: You can delay removal only once per stranded event.
