What are your stock inventory and sales?

Remember the inventory period data.
Knowing the product inventory period, for example, the average 3 days, 7 days sales. Once the sales data is available, then you can control the inventory period. What’s important, you can deal with the slow-moving products immediately. This can avoid unnecessary storage costs.
Purchasing Cycle And Arrival Days
The inventory showing time is different, because of the purchasing period and delivery time. Only know the exact purchasing period and inventory showing time, then you can avoid the sales and keywords ranking dropdown.
FBA refill inventory formula
Purchase time + delivery time + customs clearance time + Amazon inventory processing time. According to this formula, the last shipment of inventory should maintain sales until the next one. Once you found the inventory cannot maintain the next shipment, then comes the out of the stock. Of course, we can control the keywords ranking by revising prices and reducing the CPC cost.
We can put this simply since sellers can’t control the problems of the products in the logistics chain. So they can only prepare more sufficient inventory to maintain the sales.
