Amazon inventory management is the process by which Amazon sellers track inventory levels, deliveries, sales, and orders. Amazon sellers are in complete control of replenishing their stock, automating quantity changes, adjusting for lead times, predicting supplier shipment speeds, and much more. Proper Amazon order management and efficient Amazon inventory control are key to maintaining a profitable business with fewer logistical delays.
Amazon order management is the process that begins when a customer makes a purchase and ends when the order is shipped and fulfilled. An Amazon order management system enables you to oversee all orders from a single dashboard. With an Amazon order management software, sellers can manage supplier orders, send orders to Amazon, and manage their order inventory without consulting several separate spreadsheets or forms.
Amazon inventory planning is when a seller identifies what the projected number of orders will be over the next 30-90 days to ensure they can meet the demand by replenishing stock at an Amazon fulfillment center. It requires an analytical mind to find the right mix so that the seller doesn’t buy too much or too little at any given time (accidentally tying up too much capital or running into stockout issues.)
In Helium 10’s Inventory Management platform, you can use the Inventory Levels feature to identify if a seller (or multiple sellers) are in a situation where they’re close to running out of stock.
To add inventory to your Amazon store, you must: click on ‘Add Products’, and add in the product information (Product Name, ASIN or SKU, etc.).
To check your Amazon inventory levels, visit the Inventory menu and click “Manage Inventory.”
To download your entire inventory list: go to ‘Inventory’ and click on ‘Inventory Reports’, select the report type, click on ‘Request Report’, and click the ‘Download’ button.
To sell through Amazon FBA, you must have inventory at an Amazon fulfillment center. You can find inventory through retail or online arbitrage.
This depends on search volume, where your product ranks for your keywords, seasonality trends, and lead times for inventory replenishment. However, a good rule of thumb is to start with 200 units and adjust your inventory levels from there.
Typically, it’s best practice to keep around 60 days’ worth of inventory at an Amazon fulfillment center at all times to cover any expected changes in sales volume. This will enable you to minimize overstocking while providing you with enough lead time to replenish stock if there’s an unexpected increase in sales.
