Now that it’s nearing Q4, we wanted to share some of the key dates Amazon sellers should look out for, starting this September.
Open up your calendars and read on to make sure you know the important dates to track for your Amazon business.
September 7 – This is the deadline to submit 7 Day Deals, Best Deals, and Lightning Deals to Amazon.
September 15 – This is the last day you can order inventory for Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and the overall holiday season. With shipping delays and projected supply chain bottlenecks, we recommend you do this even earlier if possible.
October 1-7 – This is Golden Week in China. It’s a holiday observed nationally, so many manufacturers and suppliers in the country will not be open for business during this time. Plan accordingly.
October 21 – This is the inbound shipping cutoff for most vendors, which means your deal inventory must be in transit by now.
October 31 – This is the last day you have to order inventory before Chinese New Year, which will be on February 1, 2022. Plan your supply accordingly.
November 1 – This is the last day you have to get inventory into an Amazon FBA warehouse for Black Friday and Cyber Monday, and the holiday season. Tip: Work with us for 1-3 day prep turnaround to get your items into FBA lightning fast!
November 25 – Thanksgiving Day, we all know what that means!
November 26-28 – This is Black Friday, and the Q4 sales rush begins.
November 28-December 6 – This is Hanukkah, plan accordingly if you or your partners plan to take this period off.
November 29 – This is Cyber Monday, so get ready for those electronics sales.
December 20 – We recommend you send all holiday gifts out by this time at the latest.
