It can be frustrating for sellers when you have interested buyers looking at an item — but you’re currently out of stock in it. Not only have you lost out on that sale, but you might have also lost out on a buyer because they’ll be shopping with a merchant who does have their product available.

will show you exactly how to avoid such dreadful situations so you can avoid these as much as possible.

Start With the Source
Unless you manufacture your own products, you deal with a supplier or manufacturer.

Starting with that relationship should be your first step when it comes to avoiding being out of stock on Amazon. It doesn’t matter if you’re establishing a new relationship or have been dealing with them for a while — talking about production and sales cycles should always be a top priority so you don’t get caught with your pants down.

If you’re not sure where to start, here are some questions to ask your supplier/manufacturer to get started.
  • How long does it take to take to make [product]?
  • How long does it take to replenish your supply of [product]?
  • How does my the number of [product] I order impact you many units you make or supply?
  • What kind of negotiating do you do with your suppliers? Is there any wiggle room on that?
  • Can you guarantee a minimum order each month?
  • When are you busy times during the year?
  • Are there any holidays or blackout periods that affect things on your end that I should be aware of?
  • How much ordering notice do you need from me to fill the order?
The more scenarios you can anticipate on everyone’s end, the better equipped you’ll be to ask the questions that really matter. And when suppliers/manufacturers sense that you’ve got your stuff together, they’re more apt to take you seriously and do what they can to not leave you hanging.
