You have not probably thought about the importance of minor details like monitoring your product expiration dates. Come to speak of it, that is a pretty major detail! Most sellers who run their business on Amazon do not follow Amazon’s rules for expired products, nor do they check the condition of the products, or follow Amazon Safety Guidelines.
Due to this irresponsible approach, you can come across with serious issues, such as Amazon seller suspension.
You probably wonder why you should pay attention to those expiration dates.
Keep in mind that Amazon costumers are always in the first place. Sellers are replaceable, but not costumers. If you offend Amazon’s costumers by sending them an expired product, you are walking on a tightrope because you are putting the safety of customers at risk by selling expired products.
Here are the main reasons why your product can be consider expired:
- The expiration date has passed or is just around the corner
- It tastes old and stale
- It just looks like it’s pretty old
Stay Fresh to Avoid Expired Items Suspensions
Besides cleaning up your seller account from expired products, you should also implement the following actions:
- Keep tracking expiration dates to ensure that items are sold before new ones arrive.
- Make sure expiry dates are included on every item.
- If your product’s date is close to expiration, withdraw it from your warehouse.
- Check the storage condition such as temperature, humidity, and light.
