Twenty Tips for Selling on Amazon – Tip #12

12.  Reduce Storage fees with Just in Time (JIT) Inventory Management 

Just In Time refers to getting your inventory to Amazon just before it runs out.  This way you minimize the time items are in storage and therefore racking u storage fees.  Also this means you have less cash tied up in inventory at any one time.

Amazon offers a feature called Replenishment Alerts.  You can set an alert for fast selling products.  You can set the alert at the number of units or weeks of cover.  I know how long it takes me to order most of my products, get them delivered to me and then to Amazon so I tend to use “Weeks of cover” for my ordering threshold.  When the item reaches the specified limit, Amazon sends you an email.  Here is what you see when you set replenishment alerts:
