Reports - Low-Inventory-Level Fees

As of April 1st, 2024, Amazon is charging its Low Inventory FBA fee. This fee is a per-unit fulfillment fee based on your 90 historical days of supply at FBA and your 30 historical days of supply at FBA. If both your 90 and 30 days of supply fall below the 28-day threshold, Amazon will charge an additional fulfillment fee for each item sold and shipped while this inventory is below 28 days of supply. You can avoid falling below this threshold by consistently keeping enough inventory in stock at FBA.


This first video explains how SoStocked's new Low Inventory Fees dashboard works, how to read it and what actions to take when your products appear in that dashboard. The second video is a more in-depth webinar training on Amazon fees. In that video, Chelsea teaches about Amazon's low inventory fees, how they are calculated, and the fee structure. Make sure to watch both videos to fully understand these fees and their impact.


The most important thing you can do to prevent these fees from occurring in the future is to always make sure you have at least 35 days of buffer stock at FBA. You can adjust your forecast settings in SoStocked to help you with this. If you haven't watched the Buffer Stock tutorial, you may want to do so now.
