Amazon investing over $5 billion in small business success and stability during a difficult time

Our focus has been on getting the most selection for customers while enabling your success. That has included limiting ordering for our own retail business in the U.S., and allocating the majority of space in our fulfillment centers for seller inventory so that your products are in stock for customer orders. As we write this email today, sellers using Fulfillment by Amazon carry enough inventory, on average, to support 25% more days of sales than our own retail business, and more than 60% of products in our fulfillment centers worldwide are from sellers.
Sellers surpassed $4.8 billion in worldwide sales from Black Friday through Cyber Monday, growing about 60% from last year. Your businesses continue to grow faster than Amazon’s own first-party retail business, and we’re glad. What’s good for you is good for Amazon, our customers, and communities around the world.

Fulfillment by Amazon’s next scheduled long-term storage fee inventory cleanup.
On the 15th of each month, Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) conducts an inventory cleanup. On these dates, inventory that has been in US fulfillment centers for more than 365 days incurs a long-term storage fee (LTSF) of $6.90 per cubic foot or a $0.15 per-unit long-term storage fee, whichever is greater.
As announced in the 2019 US FBA fee changes summary, Amazon is eliminating long-term storage fees for units that have been in a fulfillment center for 181 to 365 days. The last long-term storage fee charge for inventory in a fulfillment center for 181 to 365 days was January 15, 2019. This change is not retroactive. Any previous 181 to 365 day charges will not be reimbursed.

Turn your excess inventory into a sales opportunity

Turn your excess inventory into a sales opportunityYou can proactively optimize your FBA inventory by taking advantage of the Amazon Outlet program. Outlet deals are Amazon-featured limited-time promotional offers displayed on the Amazon Outlet page. Featuring products via Amazon Outlet can help you boost sales, improve cash flow, optimize inventory levels, and reduce storage fees. You can use the Manage Excess Inventory page to identify products eligible for Amazon Outlet deals and submit deals for approval using the menu to the right of eligible listings.

Introducing Subscribe & Save automatic enrollment

Subscribe & Save can help FBA sellers boost conversion, drive repeat purchases of everyday essential items, and grow brands. And now if you’re an eligible FBA seller, your products are automatically enrolled in Subscribe & Save!
Effective December 18, 2019*, eligible, replenishable items will begin to be automatically enrolled at a 0% base discount. Amazon will continue to automatically fund a limited-time 5% discount when customers receive five or more items in one delivery. There is no cost to you for automatic enrollment and the Amazon-funded discount. Manual enrollment of products is no longer required.
