Amazon Expands Unfulfillable Inventory Management Options: Empowering Sellers to Optimize Inventory Handling
In a significant move to enhance seller control over unfulfillable inventory, Amazon has introduced a suite of new options, offering sellers greater flexibility in managing items deemed unsuitable for sale. These options, effective November 16, aim to reduce storage costs, streamline inventory management, and empower sellers to make informed decisions about their unsalable merchandise.
Expanded Disposal Option for Unsellable Inventory
Amazon now allows sellers to directly opt for disposal of unfulfillable inventory, eliminating the need to create removal orders. This streamlined approach simplifies the process, enabling sellers to quickly remove unsalable items from their inventory.
Return to Seller Option for Reassessment and Potential Resale
Sellers can now choose to have unfulfillable inventory returned to them, providing an opportunity to reassess the condition of items and potentially resell them through alternative channels. This option is particularly useful for items with minor defects or outdated packaging that may still have value.
Third-party Liquidation for Additional Monetization Potential
For items that are not suitable for resale, Amazon now offers the option to send them to a third-party liquidator. This route allows sellers to potentially recoup some of the value of their unsalable inventory through liquidation services.
