You can set the minimum order quantity (MOQ) on your low-priced listings. The standard selling price is less than €10 on Amazon.de, Amazon.fr, Amazon.it and Amazon.es, and less than £10 on Amazon.co.uk—VAT-inclusive price for both Fulfillment by Amazon and seller-fulfilled orders.
Customers will only be able to buy quantities that are greater than or equal to the set MOQ limit. For example, if the MOQ limit for a product is set to two, a customer will not be able to place an order for one unit, but can only order two or more units of the same product.
You will be able to list low-priced items that are not profitable when sold individually, lowering per-unit preparation costs and especially shipping costs, by selling more units in the same shipment. Additionally, you can shift from hard bundling to MOQ, allowing customers to have better purchase options.
To set up a MOQ offer, the following conditions must be met.
You can create your MOQ offers in two ways:
No. There are no additional fees for applying MOQ limits on your eligible offers.
Yes, you can.
The reasons include:
* You can enter a number from 1 to 6. It will only be considered MOQ if the number is greater than or equal to 2.
You have two options.
You can download the listing reports here (Inventory Report, Active Listings Report, Open Listings Report, Cancelled Listings Reports, Inactive Listing Report, All Listing Report) and filter per Minimum order quantity columns to have an overview.
You can modify or delete MOQ attributes (Minimum order quantity, Sell remainder) whenever you want in the listing tools (Manage Inventory page, Feed/Templates, API). They will apply to future orders only.
Yes. Build International Listings will automatically synchronize your first time MOQ setting from your source marketplace to target marketplace listings. However, any post adjustments of the MOQ setting in your source marketplace listings will not be synchronized. If you want to adjust the value in target marketplaces, you will need to adjust it for those target marketplaces directly in Seller Central. For target marketplaces where MOQ is not activated, your MOQ setting will not be synchronized.
Yes. MOQ limits will be automatically applied on eligible offers for Amazon Business (B2B) orders. If a quantity discount is configured on the business price for the requested offer (see here for more information), MOQ limits will not be applied for Amazon Business (B2B) orders.
MOQ activates automatically and reflects within a few hours.
Note that MOQ applies at offer (SKU) level. If your offer is sold only in one marketplace, MOQ will only apply in that marketplace. Even though Build International Listings will automatically synchronize your first time MOQ setting from your source marketplace to target marketplace listings, you will be able to modify MOQ settings in the target marketplace.
Products that are already sold as a hard bundle pack are not recommended for MOQ feature.
No, MOQ applies at offer (SKU level). MOQ applies only to a specific offer and it cannot be used to bundle 2+ different offers in the same order.
There is no specific FBA preparation or inbound requirement for MOQ offers inventory, you can ship the inventory as your regular FBA inventory.
