Stranded inventory

The Stranded Inventory report shows a breakdown of the units in your inventory that are in the stranded status.

Stranded inventory is an inventory at a fulfilment centre that does not have an active offer on Amazon.

Inventory can become stranded because of a variety of reasons. For example, the listing for that product may be suppressed, or may have never been created, resulting in a stored inventory that is accumulating storage fees, but cannot be sold because the listing is not active.

Important: If you have stranded inventory, you will be notified by email and a Fix Stranded Inventory link will appear on the top of your Manage Inventory page. Stranded inventory can be fixed by completing or creating the offer or removing the inventory.

Field definitions

Field name Description
primary-action The action needed to bring your inventory out of the stranded status. The possible actions are:

Relist: For products that have been listed previously but do not have an active offer, you can go to Inventory > Add a Product to create a new offer. If you see a message indicating that your product has already been listed but it needs to be edited, click the provided link to update your listing.

Create removal order: For products that you no longer wish to sell, you can select the product on your Manage FBA Inventory page and choose Create Removal Order from the drop-down menu on top.

Change to fulfilled by Amazon: If you have a listing, but it is a product that you fulfil yourself, none of your FBA inventory for that product will be available for sale. From your Manage Inventory page, use the Change to Fulfilled by Amazon action to enable those products to be immediately picked, packed, and shipped by FBA.

Create a new listing: For products that have never been listed, you must create a new listing for your SKU by going to Inventory > Add a Product .

Note: When relisting a product or creating a new listing, the following information must match the units in your FBA inventory:
  • ASIN
  • Condition
  • Merchant SKU

If these fields do not match, a second product will be added to your inventory that is not associated with the existing inventory.
