In recent years, Amazon has been slowly improving product security. First, in the summer of 2020, FBA sellers face new restrictions, making it difficult to launch new products on Amazon. The limitation is that the number in the ASIN level is only 200 units. Amazon removed the new variable after that. In April 2021, ASIN level restrictions were lifted and Amazon introduced a range of security level models. The available inventory storage space is six different types of storage: clothes, aerosol, shoes, light, oversize, standard size and recently, as of January 1, 2022, Amazon’s Inventory Performance Index (IPI) for storage size becomes 400 (previously 500). Although as part of its strategy, Amazon is expanding its security capabilities. The main purpose of this restriction is to prevent large shipments during the holidays, because this consumes storage space.

However, the criteria for maximum security are as follows:
- Individual Seller Accounts:
They have a storage capacity of 10 cubic feet, the value does not change. Seller accounts are not subject to margin increases.
- Professional Merchant Accounts:
Depending on the following criteria, they may or may not have a very low margin of safety:

- Sellers will not receive maximum protection if they are new sellers who have been active for less than 26 weeks or sellers without complete sales data. to produce an IPI score within two weeks of score verification.
- Commercial accounts with limited storage must have a minimum of 25 cubic feet for clothing, bulk, standard, or footwear products.

Non-Apparel: Amazon will use Dimensional Weight when greater than Unit Weight for all standard large, small over medium, medium and large sizes.
