If you have been procrastinating your holiday season planning, now is the time to act!
To ensure your products are inventoried and available for sale by Black Friday/Cyber Monday on Amazon, sellers should have their goods in Amazon US fulfillment warehouses by Wednesday, November 2, 2022.
With this deadline only a few days away, there is no time to waste.
If you are banking on holiday season sales in December in the run-up to Christmas, your deadline to have your inventory in Amazon centers is Thursday, December 1, 2022.
Technically, this gives you a bit more time, but if you wait until the last minute, you will miss many busy holiday shopping days.
Amazon says the deadline recommendations are estimates and subject to change without little notice.
If you waited too long and think it’s too late, don’t fret yet. It’s possible that products arriving past these recommended deadlines will still become available on the marketplace in time.

Amazon Holiday Prep Resource
For sellers new to Amazon, the company has a ‘Prepare for the Holiday Season‘ landing page that will help new sellers guide them through this busy season.
Even if you miss some of the holiday shopping season by being late to the game this year, consumers continue to look at Amazon as their top marketplace for shopping.
Effectively, only Amazon has the logistics network to offer last-minute deliveries to last-minute gift shoppers without charging them expensive express shipping fees.
There is still time to get something out of the holiday season on Amazon even if you waited this long.
