Partner Reserve Quantity is a tool Sellers can use to set expected inventory amounts for SKUs at partner locations. Adding Partner Reserve Quantity values helps with filtering and viewing all items that are low or out of stock as well as color coding your Available Quantity values so you can quickly identify which SKUs need to replenished throughout the network to prevent overselling.
Once you have set up SKUs with Partner Reserve Quantities, identify SKUs with low inventory before stockouts and use Work Orders to assign more inventory to the partner warehouse as needed.
Important: Sellers participating in Amazon's SFP Program are strongly advised to add Partner Reserve Quantity for ALL Prime SKUs. It is important to monitor inventory regularly and replenish stock as needed so you do NOT oversell. It is also advised to turn off SFP listings if you are running below the buffer quantity to prevent any problems that can end up hurting your Amazon metrics.
