* Amazon Central / Re: Fake Reviews on Amazon
« Last post by Southern Jewel's Fab Finds on May 10, 2018, 03:43:53 PM »
from the article:

Jake picked up the box on his desk, tore through the packing tape, unearthed the iPhone case inside, snapped a picture, and uploaded it to an Amazon review he’d been writing. The review included a sentence about the case’s sleek design and cool, clear volume buttons. He finished off the blurb with a glowing title (“The perfect case!!”) and rated the product a perfect five stars. Click. Submitted.

Jake never tried the case. He doesn’t even have an iPhone.

Jake then copied the link to his review and pasted it into an invite-only Slack channel for paid Amazon reviewers. A day later, he received a notification from PayPal, alerting him to a new credit in his account: a $10 refund for the phone case he’ll never use, along with $3 for his trouble — potentially more, if he can resell the iPhone case.

The canes were out of the sealed wrapped candy canes.
Damaged to the point of powder in the bottom of the box.
These were Raspberry... So they would've been decent sprinkles for chocolate ice-cream.

It always amazes me when I run across vendors that freely share or expose their sources.   E.g., at fairs and trade shows I often see boxes in the recycle bins or trash areas with the return address still attached.  smh

I've gotten a couple of them like that. Gotta love dumpster diving!

and he's spot on.  To top it off, now they've slowed down the 2-day Prime shipping.  Used to, I could order on Friday and get it on Sunday.  Now, It usually won't arrive until Monday or Tuesday.   Similar thing with the overnight shipping upcharge.  When I order, many of the items don't even have the overnight option available (even though they're FBA or sold by Amazon), and those that do have the fee a lot higher than it used to be. Sure, everything has gone up over the past few years, but still. . .  For those that don't have the overnight available, I suspect it's a case of the items being warehoused further away from me.

No way am I having my suppliers ship directly to Amazon. Last thing I need is for Amazon to jump on any more listings of mine.
^^^^ This! ^^^^
Yeah, let's all give Amazon our sources for our products  ::)

But since Amazon likes to steal seller's vendor data and then strike a deal with the vendor directly, I wouldn't do it.

My thoughts exactly.

I don't know, as I haven't been "into" eBay in years.
It's my bent and dent store.
But....

I am heading back with a renewed sense of purpose.

If I don't revisit this in the next week, bump it to remind me.

I have some items I'm putting on Etsy, some on eBay, some on a website.

And would sincerely like to get into the promotions of eBay... again after years.
