Stranded inventory required removals

Pursuant to the Amazon Services Business Solutions Agreement and as described in the Required Removals page, Amazon requires that you remove all units that are unsuitable for sale from Amazon fulfillment centers. If your inventory remains stranded, you will receive 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 hazmat 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 30 days from the drop-down menu to the right of the listing on Fix stranded inventory.

Note: You can delay removal only one time per stranded event.
