What is Stranded Inventory on Amazon and How it Works?

Last Updated on April 30, 2021 by

In this article, we will discuss about stranded inventory and how to fix stranded inventory.

If you send your products to the Amazon warehouse and you do not have any active offer for them then your inventory of these products is stranded inventory. This inventory is not available for sale but you are paying a charge for them for keeping them in Amazon Fulfilment Center. Amazon will send you a report informing the reasons for the stranded inventory so that you can fix them.

How to find the reasons and fix stranded inventory

You will find a quick access tab “Fix stranded inventory” and there you will find the “Stranded reason”

Besides this, you can download the report, where you will find the reasons.

There are various reasons for which offers become inactive.

Missing Price: Your listings can become inactive due to missing prices. Anyhow you can miss adding price in your listings in that case you need to add price.

Restricted ASIN: Sometimes Amazon restricts the sale of ASIN due to intellectual property violations, poor product quality, your product requires additional safety testing, etc. In this case, you need to contact seller support.

Suspended Listing: Sometimes listings become suspended for missing information like images, bullet points, age requirements, etc. In this case, you need to add the missing information.

Listing Deletion: Your listings can be deleted by accident. To fix this simply you need to relist the product, sometimes you may need to contact the seller support.

To sell on Amazon you need to maintain a healthy performance. Make a habit to list your products carefully so that you can avoid having stranded inventory. If anyhow you have some stranded inventory, fix them as early as possible. Let us know if you face any issues. Do not forget to let us know your opinion.
