What is the Inbound Analyzer?

The Inbound Analyzer shows you information about units of a SKU that are inbound to Amazon FBA and helps you identify units that may have gone missing.

To view the Inbound Analyzer:

  1. Go to Restock Suggestions and click on a supplier or [All Suppliers].
  2. Scroll to the column containing "Inbound."
  3. Scroll down to or search for the SKU you want to analyze.
  4. Click on the hyperlinked number in the Inbound column, which is the number of units of this SKU that are currently on their way to an Amazon Fulfillment Center. The Inbound Analyzer appears as a pop-up modal.
