The considered FBA inventory in VentoryOne consists of:

  • Available Inventory

  • Reserved Inventory

  • Incoming Inventory

(Definitions at the end of the article)

Why are these three inventories considered as available inventory in VentoryOne?

For the calculation of "recommended submission quantities," the difference between available inventory and inventory for the FBA inventory target range is determined.

So, if we assume a sales velocity of one unit per day and we want an inventory range of 35 days in the FBA inventory, there must be 35 units in stock.

Once units are sold, a difference occurs, and a recommendation is displayed in VentoryOne. If the settings of the inventory target reach are correctly defined, the recommendation is in parentheses because the inventory is sold from the send-in frequency.

The definitions of the inventories are as follows:

Fulfillable Inventory

  • Goods have been received and are ready to be shipped.

Reserved Inventory

  1. Customer Order: These units are used to ship customer orders.

  2. Transport between Fulfillment Centers: These units are transported from one fulfillment center to another to bring the inventory closer to the customer. Units with the status "In transit to fulfillment center" can be ordered by customers. Customers may see a later shipping date if no other units are available for immediate shipping. Transport of units usually takes 1 to 5 days.

  3. Processing in Fulfillment Center: These units have been set aside for further processing in the fulfillment center. This includes checking item dimensions and weight or pending investigations.

Conclusion regarding reserved inventory: This inventory should be considered in the incoming inventory on Amazon because points 2 and 3 involve a relocation, and the incoming inventory is usually higher than the outgoing inventory.

Incoming Inventory

  • Goods have been registered by the seller through the creation of delivery plans.
