Recommended Removal Report

This report provides a list of inventory may be subject to the long-term storage fee (LTSF) at the time of the next Inventory Cleanup.

The Recommended Removal report shows you which units in Amazon fulfilment centres may be subject to the LTSF at the next Inventory Cleanup and helps create a removal order to have those units returned to you or disposed of. This report will automatically calculate, on an ASIN-by-ASIN basis, the quantity that you would need to remove (assuming no further sales of your inventory) to avoid the LTSF. You can then click on “Begin Removal Process” to populate a removal order and request to have those units returned or disposed of.

The report will recommend that you remove all units of all products that have been in Amazon fulfilment centres for more than 270 days to ensure that no units will have been in Amazon fulfilment centres for more than 365 days on the next Inventory Clean-up. The report only shows 150 products per page view.

You can filter by ASIN or Merchant SKU to narrow your search.

Begin Removal process

When you click on “Begin Removal Process”, all units of the products listed in the current view (up to 150) will be copied to the removal order request workflow. From there, you can:

  • Change the quantity of each product to be returned or disposed of
  • Remove products from the list
  • Add products to the list
  • If your report spans multiple page views, you can create a separate removal order request for each page view.
Note: For each removal order request, you can have all units of all products in the request either returned or disposed of. If you want to have some units returned and others disposed of, you must submit separate removal order requests.
