The convenience of Amazon Fresh is hard to beat, but it can be frustrating when your favorite grocery items are out of stock.
If your go-to snacks are sold out on Amazon Fresh, when can you expect them to restock? I have done some digging to find out exactly when Amazon Fresh restocks..
When Does Amazon Fresh Restock?
Amazon Fresh generally restocks completely within 30 days. However, they’re constantly getting shipments and some items may be back on the shelves within 2-3 days. If there is an item you want and it’s sold out, you can set up reminders in your Amazon account and be notified as soon as it’s back in stock. If you have placed your order, you will receive a refund for any out of stock items.

What Happens When You Order An Out Of Stock Item On Amazon Fresh?
If you order an item on Amazon Fresh that is out of stock when they begin preparing your delivery, you will receive a refund for that item automatically.
If the order does not get refunded automatically, you can always contact Amazon customer service to request your money back.
Sometimes the item is restocked rather quickly and you will receive it in the next shipment. an Amazon support specialist will be able to help you decide whether t’s scheduled for a later delivery or not.
You can also set up notifications for items that are out of stock. Amazon Fresh will notify you via email as soon as your item is back in stock.
If it’s a popular product, you will be the first to know when it’s back and checkout ASAP, before it goes out of stock again.
Does Amazon Fresh Show Out of Stock Items?
Amazon Fresh tries not to put out-of-stock items in the search results to avoid confusion. However, you can select ‘Include Out Of Stock’ under the filter ‘Show Results For’ if you want to see all items.
Here you will see all items on Amazon Fresh regardless of availability.
If you search for a specific item by brand name, Amazon Fresh will show it to you regardless of availability as well.
But if you just search for ‘eggs’ Amazon Fresh will only display the available eggs unless you refine and filter your search.
If you include the brand name and specify to show ‘Out of Stock’ items and the product doesn’t appear, it simply means Amazon Fresh does not offer that product whatsoever.
How Do I Get Notified About Item Restock on Amazon Fresh?
When browsing the Amazon Fresh website, you will see the red ‘Out Of Stock’ notice next to certain products instead of the ‘Add To Basket’ button.
If you want to be notified when this item is back in stock, click the button saying ‘Alert Me’ to the right of the product detail where it says ‘Out Of Stock.’
When clicking the ‘Alert Me’ button, Amazon will set up automatic emails to send you once the product is back in stock.
This is the best way to be on top of out-of-stock items and be able to puchase them as soon as they’re back in stores.
Sometimes you won’t have the ‘Alert Me’ option. In this case, it can mean two things.
- Amazon Fresh does not plan on restocking the item. In this case, you should consider finding the product elsewhere.
- It simply isn’t offered for this product or Amazon fresh store. An Amazon customer service associate will be able to help you understand more about this.
Amazon Fresh allows customers to set up notifications for out of stock items.
If you order an out of stock item, Amazon will automatically refund you the amount for the item but still process the order for the remaining products.
Amazon Fresh typically restocks all its products within 30 days but this varies by location and store-to-store.
