Problem

Within the inventory listing you get the following message as an update status. 

Amazon Throttling Error.png

Cause

Throttling is the process of limiting the number of requests you can submit in a given time. Amazon limits the number of requests made to them per hour per account and throttling is imposed when an account puts too much load on their servers. This can occur when you perform large inventory updates in a single instance or continuously perform forced updates on the Amazon channel.

Solution

To unthrottle an account, contact Amazon to find out the reason your account has been throttled and when the throttling is removed, perform a forced update on your inventory. Beware that a forced update of a large inventory could result in your account being throttled again.

Force Update

The force update option forces Amazon to update all inventory listings in a single request.
