It is clear from a sellers perspective the restock limit is a nightmare and I am even getting the impression Amazon have realised this too. I want to start a thread here, that I hope Amazon will read, that will offer some ideas on ways in which Amazon can resolve their warehouse capacity issues whilst making it workable for sellers too. I will start the ball rolling here:
It is clear that the restock limits are harmning sellers in many different ways. Preventing business growth, planning, etc. I think most sellers can also sympathise with Amazon’s situation that there is only so much warehouse space.
I think the very simple solution to this problem for everyones benefit is as follows:
Remove restock limits and heavily increase the existing Long Term Storage fees. If sellers fill your warehouse with rubbish or slow moving stock they will be almost forced to get it removed to avoid serious LTSF.
Problem solved. Everyone happy.
I also think this type of policy will also allow for stock that might typically take 6-12 months to sell an opportunity to be offered by Prime. Restock limits calculated on 3 months worth of sales will mean sellers less likely to send in items that are expected to sell say between th 3-12 month period. I know for media sellers this would be a good option.
If any Amazon moderators are seeing this message I would be grateful if you could pass on this feedback to the relevant team.
