Effective January 1, 2020, Amazon will change the Inventory Performance Index (IPI) threshold for storage limits to 400 (previously 350). Amazon Storage will continue to evaluate storage limits each quarter.
If your IPI score is less than 400 during the next evaluation week of November 11, 2019, you will be notified of your potential storage limits for Q1 2020. You will then have six weeks to improve your IPI score. If your IPI score is still below 400 during the week of December 23, 2019, storage limits will apply for Q1 2020.
You can find your IPI performance at the bottom right of your Seller Central Home Page. Here is a screenshot of a typical index:
Sellers who maintain an IPI score of 400 or greater will have unlimited storage for standard-size and oversize items (monthly storage fees and long-term storage fees still apply).
To provide a head start on improving inventory health, Amazon is offering a limited-time, free inventory removal promotion for all sellers with an IPI score of 350 or above at any point in October 2019. Sellers without an IPI score are not eligible for this promotion. If you qualify, beginning October 14, 2019, we will waive your removal fees for any removal order that you submit for inventory in our US fulfillment centers. This promotion ends at 11:59 p.m. PT on October 31, 2019. More free removal promotion details.
