What are you guys doing about out of stock listings?

Is it ok to delete listings that I have that are out of stock and probably won’t get them again?

I might be a good idea.

What happened to us years ago, from out of nowhere we would get an order for one of our products that was discontinued or what ever. If the listing is not in your dashboard it might not have any chance of getting sold while it is dead.


Yes it’s advisable to delete these as it improves ur in stock rate and prevents IP issues on historical sales.

I used to delete mine but found it difficult to find the sales data or item details later. I just close them now. That’s just my experience.


You can delete it, just keep the details like the ASIN in case you want to create it again. Out-of-stock listings left will just continue decreasing in BSR, not sure about deleted listings though.
