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

Despite Amazon’s Efforts, eBay Keeps Its Leadership in the Australian E-commerce Landscape

Amazon and eBay do Australia

BigCommerce has recently released the '2018 Omnichannel Buying Report'

In an attempt to exhaustively analyze the role of online and offline channels in a highly competitive Australian e-commerce space, BigCommerce surveyed the online and offline buying habits of over 3000 Australian digital consumers. The results of the study show that Australian consumers spend $1 out of $4 of their monthly discretionary income online.

Back in November 2017, Amazon entered the Australian marketplace and started an aggressive marketing campaign with a clear goal in mind: dethrone eBay. Despite Amazon's efforts, the study shows that eBay practically doubled Amazon's figures. When asked about their past six months purchases, 63% of respondents reported an eBay purchase, while only 24% of the respondents have used Amazon's services.

The study also highlights the fact that, at a global level, Australian consumers spend online approx. 26% of their discretionary income, which is 5 ...

Size

Whatever way you trade on Amazon, be it as a third party seller or as a wholesaler, there will always be logistical costs to take into account. These include warehouse space, shipping etc. This one may seem fairly obvious, but the heavier and bulkier an item is, the higher the cost is going to be.
