Long-term storage fees February 15
« on: January 04, 2018, 03:36:38 PM »
Hello from Fulfillment by Amazon,

FBA’s twice-yearly Inventory Cleanup is scheduled for February 15, 2018. Units that have been in a U.S. fulfillment center for 181 to 365 days as of February 15, 2018 will incur a long-term storage fee of $11.25 per cubic foot on that date. Units in a fulfillment center for more than 365 days will incur a fee of $22.50 per cubic foot.

As of January 1, 2018, the units below are subject to fees unless you submit a removal order (or they sell) before February 15, 2018:

    $11.25 USD/cubic foot (181 to 365 days): 2,564 units, $479.92
    $22.50 USD/cubic foot (more than 365 days): 198 units, $68.77

If you have enabled automated long-term storage removals, the inventory above will not be charged long-term storage fees. Automated removal orders will be processed after February 15, 2018. Standard removal fees apply.

To see your settings, go to Automated Long-Term Storage Removals Settings in Seller Central. For more information, visit Remove inventory automatically.

You cannot send in more units of the affected ASINs until July 1, 2018 if you:

    Submit a removal order before February 15, 2018 to have this inventory returned to you
    Have enabled automated long-term storage removals

Your remaining inventory of these ASINs can still be sold. You are responsible for paying the appropriate fees for the return of any units.

You can send these ASINs to Amazon if your inventory levels fall below our sales projection for eight consecutive weeks. This projection is based on your actual sales from the previous 90 days.

To see inventory that is subject to long-term storage fees, go to Inventory Age in Seller Central, or download the Inventory Age report. For more information, visit FBA long-term storage fees.

Thank you for selling on Amazon.

Sincerely,

The Fulfillment by Amazon team

Note: As of this time, there are no "free" removals. Each item removed will be assessed the appropriate removal order fee.

I was really hoping for free removal.

Yep, same email received here.
Different amounts due.

Nope, no free removals.
At least none that I saw.
Who knows if they will 'give' that to we sellers again.
A girl can hope. 

Took your advice and did as you did last year and weeded out my inventory before the last day of December.

I was just thinking of something....

The email said any units removed could not be sent back in until July 1st....

BUT

What if I were to create a shipment to be sent in BEFORE creating the removal order?

Would my FBA shipment still go through and circumvent the date restriction?

You must be thinking really hard. I can smell the smoke all the way up here in Ohio. Tell me if you find out anything.

As much as I've thought on this and tried to make the solution work for you.
I'm coming up with nothing.

After you've thought about it more...what do YOU think?
We can move this to the more private area of the forum if you'd like.
Just lemme know.
