You can set up automatic removals for your inventory at Amazon fulfilment centres. You can enable removals for unsellable or stranded inventory or for both types of inventory. Eligible unsellable units can be automatically refurbished or liquidated as value recovery alternatives to the units, to be returned to the seller address or disposed.
For more information about the removal orders process, go to Remove inventory (overview).
Per-item removal fees apply. For more information, go to FBA removal and disposal fees.
To preserve the customer promise, Amazon fulfils inventory based on its location to quickly deliver the order to the customer. We don't fulfil inventory in the order that it was received in our facilities. For more information, go to Expiry dates on FBA products.
When inventory in an Amazon fulfilment centre is not in sellable condition, its status changes to Unfulfillable and it is set aside. If you do not create a removal order for your unsellable inventory within 30 days after Amazon notifies you of its required removal, it is likely to be automatically disposed of. For more information, go to FBA Inventory Required Removals.
