Inventory Performance Index (IPI)
« on: May 20, 2018, 11:50:01 AM »
If anyone does FBA, I am sure you are aware of the IPI. Here is a brief synopsis from the forum moderator Susan:

"Good inventory management can lead to reduced costs, improved profitability, and more business growth for FBA sellers. Improved inventory management will also help your products be received and delivered to customers more quickly. The Inventory Performance Index87 (IPI) measures inventory management over time, including how well you balance inventory levels and sales, fix listing problems that make your inventory unavailable for purchase, and keep popular products in stock. We will continue to improve the IPI score to ensure it encourages and reflects inventory management best practices.

As there has been some confusion about the new metric, here are answers to frequently asked questions:
What does my IPI score mean?

An IPI score above 450 means your FBA inventory is performing well, and a score above 550 indicates your inventory is a top performer. A score under 350 could lead to limits being placed on your FBA storage and to overage fees, as outlined in the new storage limit policy"

My current IPI is 568 and still climbing higher. If anyone needs assistance in working how to increase their score, don't  hesitate to ask.

I am at 594 now and still climbing... although I am sure there are others that have much higher IPI than I do.

PM me if you need something. That way, things stay private.
