Amazon will introduce a tiered rate structure for long-term storage charges, which are surcharges based on monthly storage charges, including a storage charge for 271-365 days of storage.
This change will take effect on May 15, 2022. Amazon recommends that you check your overage inventory and take appropriate steps [such as reporting deals, clearance or product promotion (Ads)] to sell these products before the 271 day threshold, so as to avoid paying these fees.

In this regard, many sellers laugh at themselves. Amazon is really a slap in the face, a handful of dates, making you painful and sweet.
So far, in addition to the outbreak of the epidemic in Beilun Port District of Ningbo City the day before yesterday (Ningbo Zhoushan Port is the world's largest port of cargo throughput, and Beilun Port District is the core port area of Ningbo Zhoushan Port), the location of the epidemic has affected cross-border sellers eager to prepare for shipment.
Then came the news that the Meisen sea ship, which was scheduled to sail in Ningbo and Shanghai from January 19 to December 20, could not return to China, and that the shipping date of No. 19.20 would be cancelled.
It is expected that the logistics freight will rise again, which will make it more difficult for sellers to stock up.
It is not easy for cross-border sellers affected by the global epidemic.
Fortunately, everything has two sides. The epidemic has led to home isolation, which has also promoted the explosion of online shopping. You can endure the temporary difficulties and enjoy a hundred days of sweet. All sellers see the rules clearly and take precautions to welcome the big sales harvest in the coming year.
