Inventory visibility

Manage your Buy with Prime product inventory

Monitor your Buy with Prime product inventory in one place with stock now displayed—down to the variation level—in your product catalog. You no longer have to cross-reference Seller Central and merchant console to see quantities of Buy with Prime products. The inventory visibility feature updates your Buy with Prime catalog automatically. You’re notified if there’s an issue updating your inventory or when your Buy with Prime products are out of stock.

Shoppers and customers can also see real-time inventory levels of their favorite products before checking out using Buy with Prime. When a shopper clicks the Buy with Prime button on eligible pages to checkout, they can select the quantity on the order preview page. Then if the desired quantity is more or less than what is available, the quantity will change to the amount available, and they can proceed to checkout.

Check product inventory in Seller Central

  1. Open Seller Central.
  2. Choose inventory.
  3. Choose Manage all inventory.
  4. Search your product by SKU, then press Enter.
  5. The status of your product should be Active. Products with no inventory have an Inactive status. Check for any notes related to other reasons for Inactive status.
  6. Check the Available column for inventory count. It should be more than zero to offer Buy with Prime.
