With millions of transactions occurring daily, Amazon is a global ecommerce powerhouse. As an Amazon seller, you get access to their loyal customer base and can distribute products without managing fulfillment, shipping, or customer service.
But with all the benefits of Amazon FBA, there are plenty of risks and frustrations.
Amazon is in charge, and there’s little you can do as a seller when one of their rules doesn’t go your way. One of the most common struggles for Amazon FBA sellers is lost revenue due to inventory damages and misplacements.
Fortunately, you can file claims for lost and damaged inventory and recover lost funds.
In this guide to FBA inventory reimbursements, we dive into this type of claim and show you how to successfully receive reimbursements credited to your account.
What is an FBA inventory reimbursement?
An FBA inventory reimbursement means that Fulfilled by Amazon (FBA) credits your seller account for lost or damaged inventory. Per Amazon’s terms of service, they are supposed to care for your inventory. You pay storage fees for inventory and commission fees when you make a sale. Any losses or damages should come out of Amazon’s pockets, not yours.
