Don’t Forget: Long-term storage fee inventory cleanup

Amazon Seller

November 15, 2019 is Fulfillment by Amazon’s next scheduled long-term storage fee inventory cleanup.

FBA long-term storage fees:  On the 15th of each month, Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) conducts an inventory cleanup. On these dates, inventory that has been in US fulfillment centers for more than 365 days incurs a long-term storage fee (LTSF) of $6.90 per cubic foot or a $0.15 per-unit long-term storage fee, whichever is greater.

As announced in the 2019 US FBA fee changes summary, we are eliminating long-term storage fees for units that have been in a fulfillment center for 181 to 365 days. The last long-term storage fee charge for inventory in a fulfillment center for 181 to 365 days was January 15, 2019. This change is not retroactive. Any previous 181 to 365 day charges will not be reimbursed.

Note: Inventory enrolled in FBA Small and Light remains subject to LTSF charges on units in fulfillment centers between 181 to 365 days. See FBA Small and Light for current LTSF rates for these units.
