Remove inventory subject to a long-term storage fee automatically

Important: If you have enabled automated long-term storage removals, removal orders will be created one to two weeks after the inventory clean-up date. For more information on inventory clean-up dates and long-term storage fees, see FBA long-term storage fees.

You can choose to have inventory that is subject to a long-term storage fee automatically removed. You can remove all inventory subject to the fee or select a price range to determine which items are returned to you.

You can also choose to keep inventory priced above a certain amount in the fulfilment centre and pay the long-term storage fees for those items only, and have the rest either disposed of or returned to you.
