Selling on Amazon is a lucrative venture, but it comes with unique challenges, particularly in inventory management. We’ve compiled practical tips and insights to help you avoid common pitfalls

Understanding Amazon FBA

Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA): This service allows you to store your products in Amazon’s fulfillment centers. Amazon handles packing, shipping, and customer service, simplifying your operations.

Facts and Figures

  1. Storage Fees: Amazon charges storage fees based on the volume of space your products occupy. These fees vary by time of year, with higher rates during the holiday season.
  2. Long-Term Storage Fees: Products stored for more than 365 days face additional long-term storage fees.
  3. Amazon’s Inventory Performance Index (IPI): Maintaining a high IPI is crucial to avoid storage restrictions and overage fees.

Practical Tips

  1. Optimize Your IPI: Keep a close eye on your IPI score and take steps to improve it, such as reducing excess inventory or increasing sales.
  2. Manage Seasonal Inventory: Plan your inventory levels according to demand fluctuations, especially during peak seasons.
  3. Utilize Amazon’s Tools: Amazon offers tools like the FBA Revenue Calculator to estimate fees and make informed decisions.

Avoiding Common Pitfalls

  1. Overstocking: Excess inventory ties up capital and can lead to long-term storage fees.
  2. Stock outs: Running out of stock can harm your rankings and sales velocity.
  3. Not Monitoring IPI: Neglecting your IPI score can result in costly storage fees.
