Amazon is giving sellers in Europe an incentive to clear out slow-moving inventory from its Fulfilment by Amazon warehouses in preparation for the busy holiday shopping season. An FBA seller from the UK forwarded an email with details of a promotion that kicked off on September 1st.
“Amazon is running a free removals and Long Term Storage Fee refund promotion from 1 September, 2016 to 30 September, 2016. This promotion is applicable to units in U.K., France and Italy fulfilment centres on which Long Term Storage Fees (LTSF) was charged on 15 August 2016.”
The promotion applies only to units in the U.K., France and Italy fulfilment centers on which Long Term Storage Fee were charged in August 2016.
Another point to keep in mind: “Units of ASINs removed under this promotion cannot be sent to U.K., France or Italy fulfilment centres till January 1, 2017, unless your inventory level falls below the number of units you have sold of this ASIN in the previous four weeks.”
