The change in storage capacity has always been a problem for sellers. No, there is only half a month left before the Spring Festival. When sellers arrange for the Spring Festival to prepare goods, Amazon's storage capacity has once again dropped sharply.
According to the past, after the end of the peak season, the storage capacity will increase. Unexpectedly, the storage capacity will drop again and again. In order to increase the storage capacity, sellers have racked their brains and even sought help from service providers, but with little success.
Just when the sellers were at a loss, there were many rumors: "Sellers can pay to buy storage capacity after the 10th ", and at the same time, some sellers posted screenshots of chats with investment managers.
As soon as the news came out, the sellers were astonished and asked the investment managers around them for confirmation.
A seller said that he had consulted several managers, and some managers confirmed the matter and said that the new policy on storage capacity will start around March this year , when Amazon will open the purchase of storage capacity service, the official announcement time is January 10 , and the specific purchase method is uncertain , the background should be able to operate directly, using a model similar to advertising bidding.
In addition, the original expansion service may be cancelled, or the review may be more stringent; IPI will be changed to a monthly assessment, and the regular Amazon inventory can basically only be kept for 3 months, but it can be expanded .
It is understood that a manager revealed that the bidding price for 1 cubic meter is about 500 RMB, which is even more expensive than the shipping fee. Moreover, the original storage capacity service may be cancelled, or the review may become more stringent. IPI may also be changed to monthly assessment, and the regular Amazon inventory is basically only kept for 3 months, but it can be expanded.
In the past , IPI qualified directly means that the storage volume in the next quarter is unlimited but the delivery quantity is still limited and independent of each other. Now it is very likely that the storage capacity will be unified, and there will be no unlimited storage capacity, but Amazon will allocate storage capacity according to the score.
Several screenshots circulated within Amazon, which can more intuitively understand the change in storage capacity.
According to the new warehousing policy disclosed by the seller, the previous quantity replenishment limit will be cancelled, and the replenishment limit and storage capacity limit will be uniformly changed to storage limit (calculated by volume).
Although the replenishment limit and storage capacity limit are combined into a storage limit, the process is simplified and the seller's operational efficiency can be improved. However, the increase or increase in items such as overage inventory surcharges, storage utilization surcharges, and monthly inventory storage fees may face higher cost pressures on Amazon sellers.
Finally, Amazon has frequently cut storage capacity in the past few months, ranging from tens of thousands to thousands, and reducing storage capacity will gradually become a norm. With Amazon’s rules and policies changing all the time , I would like to remind sellers that they must Pay more attention to observe the official developments at all times, and make adequate preparations to deal with them.
