Recommended Removal Report

This report provides a list of inventory that is at risk of being charged the Long-Term Storage Fee at the time of the next Inventory Cleanup.

The Recommended Removal report enables you to identify which units in Amazon fulfillment centers are at risk of being charged the Long-Term Storage Fee 6 weeks prior to the next Inventory Cleanup (15th of February and August), and helps create a removal. This report will automatically calculate, on an ASIN-by-ASIN basis, the quantity you would need to remove (assuming no further sales of your inventory) to avoid the Long-Term Storage Fee. You can then click the "Begin Removal Process" button to pre-populate a removal order and request to have those units returned or disposed of. If it is pre-populated 6 weeks prior to the next Inventory Cleanup, the report will only display unsaleable inventory at the fulfillment center.

The report also enables you to filter by ASIN or Merchant SKU to narrow your search.

Begin Removal Process

When you click the "Begin Removal Process" button, all units of the products listed (up to 150 products) in the current view will be copied to the removal order request workflow. From there you can do any of the following:

  • Change the quantity of each product to be returned or disposed of
  • Remove products from the list
  • Add other products to the list
  • If your report spans multiple page views, you can create a separate removal order request for each page view.
    Note: For each removal order request, you have the option of having all units of all products in the request either returned or disposed of. If you want to have some units returned and others disposed of, you must submit separate removal order requests.
