Inventory that is overstocked or stored indefinitely in our fulfillment centers limits our ability to provide space for fast-selling products customers want. Long-term storage fees help us to ensure that we can continue to provide high levels of service to all sellers and provide customers with products they want.
It is sufficient that you have submitted the removal request before the inventory clean-up date to avoid the long-term storage fee for requested items, but the removal does not need to be completed. Inventory in sellable condition will be available for sale and you will not be charged the long-term storage fee for items you have requested to remove or dispose of, unless you cancel your removal request.
This fee is in addition to the monthly inventory storage fee. The monthly inventory storage fee will continue to be charged each month. In addition to the monthly storage fee, the long-term storage fee is charged monthly for inventory that has been stored in our fulfillment centers for more than 365 days.
