What does the Slow Moving icon mean & why is this ASIN slow moving?
Amazon uses various metrics to decide if an ASIN is Slow Moving. They include the number of sellers, total sales over a certain amount of days, total reviews/review types. Note Slow Moving is not based on Rank and has nothing to do with the sales per month. Amazon does not publicly document their various conditions to consider an ASIN Slow Moving but more information can be found on the Amazon Seller Forums. The primary reason why Amazon tags an ASIN as Slow Moving is to alert an amazon that they have determined:
- They that have enough of this ASIN stocked
- That this ASIN it's not moving out of the warehouse in the volume that meets their metric for the category the ASIN is in.
Below is an example of a Slow Moving ASIN that you can see.
