How to Approach Amazon's Rolling Long Term Storage Fees

the amazon files Aug 13, 2018
Something is on the horizon that will NEGATIVELY IMPACT the profit you earn in your Amazon business. This is not something you want to sweep under the rug and ignore. 

For years, Amazon has charged sellers long-term storage fees every six months (February and August). Sellers like you could get away with paying minimal monthly storage fees on items collecting dust in Amazon's warehouses. Amazon's warehouses were stuffed to the gills with long tail inventory - items that sold once in a while with no consistency.
