Please note that Selling Partner Support does not have further information.
In July 2020, we announced ASIN-level quantity limits for products stored in our fulfilment centres to ensure that there was enough space for all FBA sellers. Our commitment has never been more steadfast, and we have already reduced our own retail product ordering to accommodate more of your products and help you continue to see sales growth.
Yes. All products that sellers can send to our fulfilment centres will have quantity limits.
To determine how much you can send in, go to Restock Inventory and check the Days of supply column. Click on the units above the colour bar to open a pop-up window that includes your Maximum shipment quantity.
Your maximum shipment quantity equals the maximum inventory level allowed, minus utilisation.
To view the utilisation number for a product, go to Restock Inventory and click on the colour bar in the Days of supply column. A pop-up window will appear.
Utilisation counts against your maximum inventory level and helps determine your maximum shipment quantity. Utilisation accounts for your current inventory, incoming shipments, inventory pending removals, and your reserved inventory. This number may or may not match your inventory supply at Amazon.
We provide an initial quantity limit for all products in order to build your sales history. Your quantity limit will be updated as you build a sales history for your products, which can take up to four weeks. You can check the quantity limits for products that are new or do not have recent sales on Restock Inventory and Restock report.
We update ASIN-level quantity limits regularly based on changes in your historical sales and forecasted sales.

We will continue to make adjustments to best support your business and keep you informed along the way.
All FBA ASINs have quantity limits. If you have an Inventory Performance Index (IPI) score above the required threshold and cannot create a shipment, it may be because of one or both of the following:
