Master managing a Seller Central Catalog
In order to manage your inactive inventory, which could be due to any number of reasons, such as being out of stock, having a price issue, etc, you would need to go to your manage inventory page by selecting Manage inventory from the dropdown menu of the inventory tab on the top menu of Seller Central.show more
At the top of the next page, click on the link that reads inactive. On this page, you will be provided with a table that shows you all your inactive skews and the reasons. Therefore, you can choose to filter this table by reason, making it easier to do a bulk fixer product by selecting all items with the same reason. And clicking the action button at the top left of the table, or you can filter by fulfillment to manage those items being filled by yourself or by Amazon.
Alongside each line item will be the following fields, the inactive reason, the issue description, and fix issues. You can then go item by item if you choose, and click on the fix issue button to the right of each line to amend the inactive item and reactivate. Your stock could be rendered inactive due to the following reasons.
Out of stock, which means that you have no stock of the item. And in order to reactivate the SKU, you need to simply restock it, start date in future, which means that your product is not going live on the Amazon marketplace until a future date. So it would become active on that. Unless you wish to fix it by amending the start date to a sooner date. Pricing issue, which means that your item is priced below the minimum price you have stipulated or similar, in which case you would need to amend your pricing to a more relevant figure to reactivate the SKU. Paused, which could be due to an internal reason from Amazon or yourself for any number of reasons in which case you would need to amend the reason you paused the skew in the first place.
Or request Amazon to unco the SKU and reactivate it. To date, we have not come across this as a reason for an inactive inventory. So it is obviously quite rare blocked, which could be due to any number of reasons from Amazon, and they will inform you how to unblock the SKU when you click on the fixed issue button to the right of it closed, which could be because you no longer sell this, it.
Approval required, which is due to brand approval or category approval, and you would work with Amazon through the fixed issue button on this to gain approval blocked unless fba, which means that this item is blocked due to some merchant fulfilled issue and other issues, which again, will have explanations in the fixed issue button to the right of the SKU.
