Amazon Seller Opportunities - How To Maximize Profit This Holiday Season.

Amazon Selling in Quarter 4 - Holiday Season & Beyond

Beginning around this time, sellers will notice a welcome influx in sales.

  1. Have enough stock starting Black Friday, until the end of January - Be prepared for Cyber Weekend, Christmas & January sales. Make sure your stock can cover this period. Some sellers may triple there business or more over this time.
  2. Prepare your stock in good time - Suppliers, factories and warehouses are going to have delays over this period. Shipping with couriers can be lengthy and a little more problematic. Plan carefully. Try to analyze last year's sales or your 3-month preceding sales and potentially triple these as a forecast, depending on your niche. You can use Amazon reports to help you do this. 
  3. Carefully watch sales and restock normally slow-selling products selling fast - Watch out for slow-moving products that become big sellers over the Q4 period. When people are buying gifts they may be entirely different from purchases they ...

How To Fix & What You Can Do - Amazon Blocks Restrictions & Account Deletions

What to do when you’re going round in circles with Amazon Seller Support & Seller Performance

As an Amazon Seller, it won’t be long before you have your first brush with Seller Support or the more ominous Seller Performance. Seller Support is the customer service team helping to keep Amazon Sellers on track in Amazon Seller Central. The problem is they are often misinformed, have poor communication skills or even a poor grasp of the English language. Think as Seller Performance as the so-called Police of Sellers on the Amazon platform. The problem is that they can turn from Police into the Gestapo. 

Amazon Block Suspensions and Warnings - What can I do

Seller Support usually has impressively quick response times. These are often within 4 hours if you remember to mark your query as urgent (if available). If your query is not urgent, it is still a good idea to tick this box. As often by ticking it means you ...

Amazon’s Automated Repricer: Why you shouldn't use it.

Amazon’s Automated Repricer: Why you shouldn't use it.

In 2016, Amazon released its own automated inventory repricing tool dubbed “Automated pricing” which was available and free for all sellers with a professional account. I am guessing Amazon saw how much its third-party sellers relied on external repricing tools. If you are reading this then I am assuming you are familiar with what a Repricer is and does but if not, a Repricer uses rules or algorithms to automatically change prices based on inputs that you set. It can reprice a listing on Amazon up or down depending on the competitor's price. If you are not familiar with Amazon with Amazon's automated Repricer you can watch this Youtube video from Amazon here
