Does FBA Have room in 2022? [Restock Analysis]
Show Notes

Restock limit changes to prepare for the 2022 holiday season
As we prepare for the busy holiday season, we want to ensure that we can receive, store, and fulfill products in a timely manner for all sellers using FBA. Therefore, we’re updating restock limits for standard and apparel storage types to allow all sellers to have at least four months of inventory in FBA. The updated limit will currently restrict about 5% of sellers using FBA from being able to restock additional products due to their already having high levels of inventory. For more information on restock limits, go to Restock limits by storage type: Frequently asked questions.
