You can read more about stranded inventory and suppressed listing in the document that follows.
Let’s begin by talking about the “Stranded inventory.”
Stranded Inventory Amazon:
Inventory in the fulfilment centre that is stranded is inactive inventory. For instance, all of the inventory will shift to the stranded inventory if Amazon removes my detail page due to some violation. The listing will also appear in the “stranded” section of Amazon Seller Central if it is placed in a suppressed state.
When listing becomes stranded
it indicates that there will be no orders for our products even though they are in the FBA warehouse. As a result, Amazon will hold your removal order for 30 days. In reality, we have 140 days to modify this 30-day status before Amazon disposes of our entire stranded inventory.
Now let’s look at how we can determine which of our products is in the inventory that is stranded. This is your Amazon seller central dashboard; click on inventory to access the inventory planning page, which will then send you to the next page.
To examine your account performance, you must click on the performance tab, which will take you to the next page, on the IPI (inventory performance index), which displays your account health.
Amazon will display the various performances of your various account-related sections here.
You can see that I have no issues with my detail page or my active status, as evidenced by the fact that I have 0% stranded inventory.
However, if you click on the “stranded inventory,” you will be directed to this page.
Amazon now displays the entire unsold inventory.
You can utilise the drop-down menu to employ other choices, or you can appeal for the product to be reinstated so you can sell it once more.
All of the unsold stock is now visible on Amazon.
Alternate options are available through the drop-down menu, or you can request that the product be reinstated so that you can resume selling it.
- If you choose the drop-down menu next to the appeal choice.
- It will display these choices:
- If you wish to remove your stranded inventory, you basically need to create a removal order. You can ship to your own private warehouse or any other location with the use of a removal order.
- Relist: To relist your product’s detail page, you must come to this page and select this option. If your product has no supply, it will be marked as “stranded.”
- Refresh the stranded causes
Now, if you see the restriction asin as the reason for the listing being stranded, if you have resolved this issue and your listing is still stranded, you must click on refresh stranded inventory to update the new error.
Delay auto removal for 30 days: As I indicated before, this option allows you to postpone auto removal for 30 days. After that time, Amazon will dispose of your goods. In reality, the process can take up to 140 days.
As a piece of advice, Amazon will first explain why they removed your listing. And if you wish to get your stranded inventory put back up, file a case for it. When they tell you why they removed your listing, it will help you comprehend why it was taken down.
Q1. Can I Make A Removal Order Fbm Listing?
And: No, you cannot create a removal order for an FBM listing since the things you are listing on Amazon are already in your possession or in a private warehouse. Amazon is simply being used to list your products.
Q2. How Can I Fix My Stranded Inventory?
Ans: When you locate your stranded inventory in the IPI area of the account health, it will display the reason for being stranded in front of the list under that heading. If you don’t understand, you may submit a case and Amazon will explain the situation.
Q3. Do Fbm Listing Also Shows In The Stranded Inventory?
Ans: When your Amazon detail page is removed, your FBM listing will indeed appear in the stranded. Depending on the error you received, it may also be suppressed, inactive, or both.
4. How Long Does It Take To Fix The Inventory That Is Stranded?
Ans: Actually, it is dependent on Amazon.
As an illustration, when I filed a claim with Amazon over my stranded goods, they responded that they had received my request and that they might need 5-7 business days to simply tell me the reason why your listing was taken down. Then they explained to me why I had to make the change: I had actually said in the listing’s backends that a particular condition would be cured by my product. And because of it, Amazon removed my detail page. And it took me close to a month to add my product back to Amazon. Yes, that does occur occasionally.
