FBA can help you scale your business and reach more customers.

Understand how your fulfilment model affects VAT requirements

Depending on the nature of your business, you will be required to register for a VAT number in a European country as per the regulations. Some of the factors that influence your VAT obligations are the fulfilment model and the country of inventory storage.

Amazon FBA Inventory Management

Use the tools in your selling partner account to list products, create shipping plans, send in shipments, track and monitor your shipments, and remove inventory from Amazon fulfilment centres.

Inventory Performance Dashboard

Your Inventory Performance Dashboard displays your Inventory Performance Index (IPI) score, along with key influencing factors. Be sure to check your IPI score regularly—a low score could lead to overage fees and limit your ability to send more inventory.

Manage excess inventory

Optimize your inventory levels by knowing when to mark down or remove your products. Monitor detailed information about storage fees, opportunities to drive sales, and suggestions to help improve returns on your inventory.

Track inventory age

Improve sell-through rates and avoid long-term storage fees. Use Inventory Age tools to understand how much inventory you’re holding, and see how long it’s been in Amazon's fulfilment centres.

Fix stranded inventory

Keep your listings active by including necessary pricing and condition information and resolving errors. If your inventory is in Amazon's fulfilment centres without an associated active listing, it’s not available for purchase.

Restock inventory

Keep your best-selling inventory in stock with personalized restock recommendations. You can also adjust for future promotions and seasonal demand patterns. Track your inventory and supplier orders so that you’re prepared to meet product demand.
