Consistent Low Inventory Fee on Amazon 2024

A low-inventory-level fee will be implemented for standard-sized products that consistently have low inventory in relation to customer demand. Inadequate inventory levels impact product distribution, delay delivery, and raise shipping costs. The fee is only charged if a product’s historical inventory levels compared to historical demand (known as “historical days of supply”) are less than 28 days. If eligible, the low-inventory-level fee will be added to the FBA fulfillment fee for its shipped units.

Monthly Inventory Fees

Beginning April 1, 2024, Amazon will implement reduced off-peak monthly inventory storage fees for standard-size products. The fees charged for the space your inventory occupies will be reduced by $0.09 per cubic foot. The pricing change will be seen in the storage charges for May 2024, which relate to storage in April 2024. Off-peak monthly storage fees for large products will stay the same, but peak monthly storage fees for standard and large products also won’t change.
