Vendor Closure Dates

Out of Office Closure Days

While you may be in the thick of Q4, the holiday periods are soon approaching. The time you get to rest, when the office and warehouse are closed. Amazon have certain days when they do not process purchase orders including Thanksgiving and Christmas Day, however many businesses may be closed throughout the holiday period when they will not be able to receive or process purchase orders.

To avoid receiving purchase orders when the offices are closed, you need to let Amazon know. You do this by adding these closure dates into Vendor Central, which Amazon refer to as outage dates. To do this click on the link below:

In addition to turning off purchase orders during those dates, Amazon uses this data to help with their inventory planning. Therefore, it is important all closure dates are included and kept up to date.

One thing to add is that despite adding in these closure dates, Amazon do state that you may still receive purchase orders. If that happens, just confirm the PO the day you return to the office.
