It’s not the most fun part of your Amazon FBA business, but at some point you’ll probably need to remove some of your inventory from an Amazon FBA warehouse. When you remove your inventory, you’ll want to be sure to do it the right way and at the right time. In this video blog post, I’ll share with you how to create a removal order, as well as share with you three things you might not know about removal orders.
Currently, there are two ways you can remove items from your Amazon FBA inventory (besides selling the item, of course):
1. Return the item back to you.
2. Have Amazon dispose of your item.
Each of these options comes with a fee, but in all honesty, the removal fees are easily the most affordable Amazon FBA fees. In fact, check out just how low the removal fees are. These removal fees actually include the shipping box, the dunnage (air pillows, paper filling, etc.), and the postage to return the item to you. Talk about a bargain!
So how exactly do you create a removal order? And what are these three things you probably don’t know about removal orders? The answers and more can be found in today’s video.
Be sure to watch the video in full screen to get the best view of my screen capture walk-through of how to create a removal order.
So there you have it… the exact steps you need to take to create a removal order, as well as the three things you might not have known about removal orders, that you now know!

UPDATE: As of September 1, 2019, sellers now have the option to donate excess inventory in the US to a select US charity (chosen by Amazon). When you choose to dispose of your select inventory items, Amazon will automatically make eligible inventory available to charitable organizations. This includes items you both manually or automatically dispose of.
Know that as of September 1, Amazon will automatically opt you into this donation program, but at any time you can disable FBA Donations in your FBA Settings. For more details on the FBA Donations program, click here.
I’d love to hear from you now. How have you used removal orders (within Amazon guidelines) to help your Amazon business? What do you think of the new FBA Donations feature? Let me know in the comments below.
