Listing Status Settings for Vacations, Holidays, and Other Absences

Fulfillment by Amazon
When you set your Listings Status to inactive, only your self-fulfilled inventory will be removed from the Amazon.com website. All listings fulfilled by Amazon through FBA will remain active.

If you are going on vacation, taking a holiday break, or would like to temporarily remove your open listings for your self-fulfilled items from the Amazon website for any other reason, you can take advantage of our Listings Status feature.

When you use the Listings Status feature, you don't have to set inventory quantities to zero or extend your shipping lead times. Set your listings to inactive until you are ready to fulfill orders again. And Listings Status provides a better experience for buyers by preventing them from placing orders that can't be fulfilled right away.

An inactive listing status does not inactivate your Buyer-Seller Messaging. Contact response time expectations remain in effect even while your listings are inactive. For more information, see Contact Response Time Metrics.

Note:
  • All sellers: Before changing the status of your listings, you may wish to check for any pending orders, since these will not be automatically canceled.
  • Fulfillment by Amazon sellers: When you set your Listings Status to inactive, only your open listings for your self-fulfilled items will be removed from the Amazon website. All listings fulfilled by Amazon through FBA will remain active.

Changing your listing status

To set your listings to inactive, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Listing Status page.
  2. Select Inactive.
  3. Click Submit.

Within 1 hour, your listings will be unavailable for sale on Amazon's website.

When you are ready to sell again, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Listing Status page.
  2. Select Active.
  3. Click Submit.

Within 1 hour, your listings will be available for sale on Amazon's website.

Note:
  • Listings Status can only be edited by users who have been granted the right to manage inventory. If you do not see the "Edit" button next to Listings Status, you do not have authorization to change the setting.
  • When your listings status is "Inactive," you will still be able to create and edit listings. Any additions and changes will be reflected on the website when you reactivate your listings.
  • Any applicable monthly subscription fees will continue to be charged, even if the fees comes due while your listings are inactive.
