Vendor Central: Why is Amazon Not Placing Purchase Orders
Perhaps your product is not showing us in stock in your catalog and that is why Amazon is not ordering. Perhaps its status is listed as temporarily unavailable. If it’s content, copy, certifications, cost, etc are not in order and need to be amended before you can make it available again. Alternately, you may simply have forgotten to check and update its availability.show more
In order to reset availability for your products or to check the availability status, select catalog from the dropdown menu of the items tab on the top menu of vendor central on the next page, type your ASIN into the search box and click the search button. When your product shows up in the table on the right side of the page, check whether the availability status says in stock. If it does say temporarily unavailable, then you would need to click the update availability link in the top left side of the page.
Then click the box to the left of this product. Click the box to the left of the in stock line and then click the edits availability button. The availability status will then change to in stock and your product should now show as available to Amazon and online. If your product is showing us in stock already, you can also change its availability to temporarily unavailable instead by clicking the box to the left of the temporarily unavailable text instead of the in stock text and clicking the edits availability button.
And then changing it back to in stock by selecting that same product and selecting in stock before clicking the edits availability button, this may jumpstart the system again, so that Amazon sees the item has just become available on their system and they may start placing purchase orders for it.
