Sell through the seasons

Pro tips for tackling the ups and downs of seasonal inventory on Prime Day, during the holidays, and other events throughout the year.

Tip:

Don’t stress on storage

When determining storage limits, we account for seasonal sales spikes, recent growth, and popularity of current products.

So many sales, so little time

For starters, determine if your event is just a one-day occurrence or spans an entire season. Then follow this guide, along with your own sales insights, to home in on how much to order, ship, and re-order.
One-day events
With quick turnaround events like Prime Day, send all stock by the due date, then ramp up sales with pre-event campaigns. For best results, calculate expected demand and sales goals well in advance.
Season-long celebrations
From holiday sales to football fandom, longer events give you flexibility to adapt and replenish as you go. To minimize overstock, keep an eye on inventory levels as the season starts to wind down.

Tip:

Fan favorites

Your customers know best. Keep tabs on trending events and products by staying active on social media.

Leftover inventory—you’ve got options

Once you lock down your timeframe, make sure you have special offers, marketing campaigns, and off-site storage ready to go.
Amazon outlet
Outlet can help you boost sales, improve cash flow, and optimize inventory levels.
Markdowns
For slow-moving items, mark down products within a specific category to drive more discovery.
Buybacks
Negotiate a buyback with your suppliers—this helps ease any risk of buying seasonal products in bulk.
Bulk removal
Save yourself some time and avoid unexpected storage fees with a one-time removal service.
