We like to make sure we have plenty of room in our fulfilment centres for the products Amazon customers like to purchase. That's why we perform inventory cleanups on 15 February and 15 August of every year, at which time inventory Units that have been in our fulfilment centres for 6 months or longer will be assessed an upfront, semi-annual Long-Term Storage Fee.
By enabling the Automated Long-Term Storage Removals settings
, you are requesting the removal (return or disposal) of Units affected by the next inventory cleanup. These settings apply to Units that would be subject to a Long-Term Storage fee on the next inventory cleanup date. When the removal order is submitted, we will send an automated e-mail notification with the removal order ID to the e-mail address you provide. Standard return and disposal fees will apply to the removals requested through this programme.
