Stranded inventory report

The Stranded Inventory report shows a breakdown of the units in your inventory that are in the stranded status.

Stranded inventory is an inventory at a fulfilment centre that does not have an active offer on Amazon.

Inventory can become stranded because of a variety of reasons. For example, the listing for that product may have been suppressed or may have never been created, resulting in stored inventory that is accumulating storage fees but that cannot be sold because the listing is not active.

Field definitions

Field name Description
primary-action The action needed to bring your inventory out of the stranded status. The possible actions are:
  • Relist: For products that have been listed previously but do not have an active offer, click on Add a Product in the Inventory drop-down menu to create an offer. If you see a message indicating that your product is already listed but needs to be edited, click the provided link to update your listing.
  • Create removal order: For products that you no longer want to sell, go to the Manage FBA Inventory page, select the product, and choose Create Removal Order from the drop-down menu on top.
  • Change to Fulfilled by Amazon: If you have an offer, but it is for a product that you fulfil yourself, none of your FBA inventory for that product will be available for sale. On your Manage Inventory page, select the product and click on Change to Fulfilled by Amazon in the Action drop-down menu to enable FBA to pick, pack and ship those products.
  • Create a new listing: If you have FBA inventory of a product that has never been listed, create a listing for your SKU by clicking on Add a Product in the Inventory drop-down menu.
Note: When relisting a product or creating a listing, the following information must match the units in your FBA inventory:
  • ASIN
  • Condition
  • Merchant SKU
If these fields do not match, the stranded inventory in the fulfilment centre will not be associated with the new listing.
