In order to manage FBA warehouses, Amazon locks some sellers' Amazon inventory. That is to say, sellers have a lot of products that are not in the warehouse, so they cannot be in the warehouse. This is also a problem that many Amazon sellers are very worried about.Dexin Overseas Warehouse
What Causes Amazon Inventory Lockdown?
There are two reasons for Amazon's inventory lock. One is that novice sellers ship a lot of goods to the Amazon logistics warehouse at the beginning. The result is that the seller's goods have reached the storage limit of the warehouse, but there are still a lot of goods waiting to be put into the warehouse. In order to better manage the storage space of Amazon's logistics warehouse, Amazon will lock the seller's inventory. Therefore, when new sellers make product inventory, they must pay attention to the inventory problem of products, and do not reach the upper limit of warehouse storage. Another is the slow sales of product inventory, and the Amazon platform will suspect that there is a problem with the ability of the seller to operate the product, and it cannot manage the inventory well, so it will also lock the product inventory.
How to solve the problem that the seller's Amazon inventory is locked?
1. Ship using the self-delivery logistics mode
Amazon's inventory lock basically happens to sellers who use Amazon FBA logistics, so when sellers can't use Amazon FBA logistics for delivery, in order not to affect the sales and weight of products, they can use the self-delivery mode for delivery. goods. This is why sellers need to prepare both hands when doing Amazon. Although most sellers use Amazon FBA logistics to save time and energy, they can also do some self-delivery, and there is a reliable logistics provider to choose from.
2. Overseas warehouse delivery
When the seller's product inventory is very large, the seller can completely consider the overseas warehouse model. Although Amazon FBA logistics can save sellers a lot of time and energy, once some products are difficult to sell and cause inventory backlog, the warehouse management fee of Amazon logistics is very expensive, which adds a lot of financial pressure to sellers. Therefore, sellers can use overseas warehouses as an alternative for warehousing. When Amazon's inventory is locked, sellers can also use overseas warehouses for delivery, which will neither affect product sales, nor affect product rankings and weights.
The time when Amazon's inventory is locked is uncertain. If the inventory is released soon, it will not affect the sales and ranking of the product. However, if the inventory lock time is too long, the seller will have to appeal, and the appeal will take a long time. At this time, the seller should consider transferring the inventory of the product, transferring the product to the overseas warehouse, or through other channel for product sales. However, this situation is often very troublesome. It is possible that the seller will have to perform a series of actions such as re-labeling, and it will cost a lot of money, so the seller must fundamentally solve the problem. Because the seller's inventory turnover rate and inventory type are factors that affect Amazon's inventory lock, sellers must improve their inventory management capabilities to fundamentally solve the problem.
