Listing status for vacations, holidays, and other absences

Set your listings status for multiple marketplaces

If you sell on multiple Amazon marketplaces, you can choose between changing your listings status for all marketplaces or for specific marketplaces only.

  • To change the status of your open listings for your self-fulfilled items in all marketplaces, use the All Listings option and check the box next to Active or Inactive as desired.
  • To make exceptions and set your listings status per marketplace, use the options to select either Active or Inactive for each marketplace.

If you are unable to fulfill orders for any reason (for example, family emergency, inclement weather, going on holiday or vacation, and so on), you can change your Listings Status to Inactive. This will remove all of your listings from Amazon product detail pages and search results within one hour. If you have any Fulfillment by Amazon listings, they will remain active on Amazon. You can change your Listings Status for all of your listings, or just for specific marketplaces.

Important: You must process return requests and respond to messages from customers within 24 hours, even if your listings are set to Inactive. You can update your settings to receive return request emails with links to Authorize, Close, or Reply, and you can have Amazon automatically authorize return requests. Learn more about automating returns and about the importance of responding to customer messages.
Note: Before changing the status of your listings, check for any pending orders, since these will not automatically be cancelled. You may want to set your listings status to Inactive prior to the date you will be away, since pending orders may take time to resolve.

You can still create and edit listings while your listings are Inactive. Additions and changes will be reflected on Amazon when you change your Listings Status back to Active.

When you are ready to sell again, change your Listings Status back to Active, and your listings will reappear within one hour.

Note: Any applicable monthly subscription fees will continue to be charged, even if the fees comes due while your listings are inactive.

Listings Status can only be edited by users who have been granted the right to manage inventory. If you do not see the Edit button next to the Listings Status section, you do not have rights to change the setting.

Note: Vacation settings are not applicable to Amazon Pay.

To set your listings to Inactive or Active, complete the following steps.

  1. From your seller account, select Settings, then select Account Info.
  2. On the Seller Account Information page, in the Listings Status section, click Going on a vacation?
  3. Select one of the following options:

    Option Description
    Set all listings to Active: All of your listings will reappear on Amazon product detail pages and search results within one hour.

    Inactive: Removes all of your listings from Amazon product detail pages and search results within one hour.

    Individual Marketplace Listings Active: Listings in the marketplace(s) you specified will reappear on product detail pages and in search results within one hour.

    Inactive: Removes all listings from the marketplace(s) you specified and search results within one hour.

  4. When you are finished, click Save.

Any applicable monthly subscription fees will continue to be charged, even if the fees comes due while your listings are inactive.
