What would you do with 1500 units of inventory that sells 100 units per month?

If your product achieves 100 sales per month… and your inventory is 1,500 pieces… it takes you a year to sell all the inventory… what should I do? Send everything to FBA?

Only if you are rich enough to pay the FBA fees cover the cost of storing your products in Amazon’s fulfillment centers; picking, packing, and shipping orders; and providing customer service for products sold.

That’s after you prep, label your products, and ship them the Fulfillment center. Then comes the monthly, and long-term storage fees. overage fees if you exceed your limit of storage, removal, disposal, etc., etc.

If you sell 100 products per month, you will probably sell more by using FBA. So, send 150 units or so to start with. If things pick up, send more. If they don’t, you won’t have to pay to have them shipped back to you, or disposed of.

Depends on the margin/storage etc. I’d quite happily sit on it for a year aslong as decent margin and have space to store it without it all In FBA at one time
