Limited Time – Amazon allowing Free Product Removal

HYC received a copy of the following limited time offer from Amazon.  HYC is ready to assist with your removal orders, and long term storage needs.  Please contact our E-Commerce group at ateam@hyclogistics.com to set up your removal order.

Free Removals Promotion

Starting April 18, 2018, for a limited time, FBA will waive your removal fees for any removal order that you submit for inventory that you have in our US fulfillment centers. This promotion will run for a limited time, and after it ends, standard removal-order fees will apply. The end date for this promotion will be communicated separately.

If you have inventory for an ASIN that is slow-moving or has not been selling, removing it may help you improve your Inventory Performance Index. This is an opportunity to remove it for free while this promotion lasts and avoid paying additional storage fees for it. Please note:

  • Monthly Inventory Storage Fees are changing starting April 1, 2018.
  • Long-Term Inventory Storage Fees are changing starting September 15, 2018.
  • Beginning July 1, 2018, we may limit access to storage for sellers with an Inventory Performance Index below 350.

Learn more about this fee change.

Note: Removals, whether you elect to have your inventory returned to you or disposed of, normally take 10 to 14 business days to pick, pack, and process. However, removal times may increase to 30 days or more during the holiday season as well as during peak and promotional periods.

If you remove inventory during this promotion you will not be able to send us more units of the ASINs you remove until either:

  • August 1, 2018, when these restrictions will be lifted


  • When your inventory level for the removed ASINs falls below our projection of your sales for the next eight weeks based on your average sales rate for the removed ASINs during the preceding 90 days

You can get the latest updates on your inventory performance using the Inventory Planning dashboard. Select Inventory Age to identify aged inventory that may be subject to long-term storage fees, and to create a removal order. Or use the Manage Excess Inventory tool to help identify products that aren’t selling, and which you may want to remove during this promotion to avoid additional storage fees.
