Amazon Two-Step Verification is Mandatory by November 1

Oct 20, 2017
We want to make sure that all Seller accounts are more secure during and after the holiday season. To accomplish this, we require all Seller Central users to enable Two-Step Verification (2SV) before November 1. After that date, you will not be able to sign into Seller Central until you enable 2SV. Make sure that you and anyone with permissions for your account have enabled 2SV in order to ensure uninterrupted access to Seller Central.

I honestly assumed that Amazon would change it and say this is the norm...
Meaning we would have to be on our toes and change it back.
But, nope they didn't do that.

Prepaid returns on seller-fulfilled items

Amazon will enable prepaid returns for sellers, starting October 2.

The update is scheduled to take place over several weeks.
If your account has been enabled for prepaid returns, you will see a notification at the top of the Manage Returns page.

This return process will automatically approve all seller-fulfilled returns that fall within the Amazon returns policy.
Customers with approved returns will be able to print a prepaid return shipping label through the Online Return Center instantly.

You can continue to track your return requests on the Manage Returns page.

I checked my Manage Returns and don't see that I'm included. Phew!

From your brain...that's where the word came from.

Good, I'm glad I asked for clarification.
Still a nope.
Interesting...very interesting.
There is such a world-wide market.
As I'm hoping to retire, I just don't have the want to move forward outside of Amazon US.
EBay, heck yeah...I opened international sales...easy peasy.
I send to an eBay center and they handle everything else, paperwork, forms, etc.
If I could find one to sell, I would.

Tell me about it...I was flippin floored at the predicted cost after the new holiday fees went into effect.

For the most part the itemswere low cost to store at warehouse, then holiday storage fees would've been implemented in October.
Smarter to pull them out for free before the fees hit. I'll send them back in January after the holiday storage fees are dropped back down.
I don't live in the really big major cities...close enough, yet far enough to have a much more laid back life.
I do like Tampa/St Petersburg and north of Orlando though.

Don't give them any ideas.

I mentioned this months ago...I think in July 2017.
Are prescription drugs the next target for Amazon?

Another day, another report that Amazon might try to upend a part of the traditional retail industry.
Are pharmacies and the health care business next?
Two analysts at Leerink, a boutique investment firm that focuses on the health care industry, said in a report Friday that Amazon (AMZN, Tech30) will "almost certainly" get into the prescription drug distribution business within the next two years.

Shares of the CVS (CVS) and Walgreen (WBA) drugstore chains both fell nearly 5% Friday following the release of the report. Pharmacy benefit management company Express Scripts (ESRX) dropped more than 2.5%.
The stocks were all down again Monday. CVS and Walgreen dropped 3% further and Express Scripts fell 5% -- even as Amazon rose and the Dow and Nasdaq hit new all-time highs.
Amazon is simplifying how we display prices to customers
Oct 5, 2017

Starting in mid-October, Amazon will begin simplifying the detail page to show your lowest offer price and a "list price," if you choose to provide one. When this change happens, prices formerly described as "sale" prices will be displayed as "prices." If you use the sale price, there will no longer be a separate field or display for pre-discounted prices after the change occurs. You do not need to take any action when the price display changes.

You might be interested in the following features:

List price: To include a list price, please review Amazon's Policy on Reference Prices, and complete the "Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP)" field in Seller Central or in the inventory upload file. List prices must represent the price at which sellers or other retailer(s) have recently made substantial sales of the product in question. Sellers also are responsible for ensuring that the list prices provided to us remain current.

Promotions: To let customers know that you are offering a sale or special discount—such as percent off, buy one get one, or free shipping—using Promotions tools. For more information, see the Promotions Help page.

Things that make you go hmmmmmm
I didn't completely remove all of a sku.
I am selling sporadically selling items out of season that others are sold out of but still have a crazy high rank.
Removed some and left some.
I can send back to Amazon January 2nd (or earlier if I sell out).

It's a gamble but dang one of the items would cost me $162.00 a year it the heck outta there!

So, if I am understanding this correctly, they want more cheaper, smaller-item groceries?
Not sure if this is what you're asking..
Do you consider cake mixes/muffin mixes/bags of candy etc smaller items even though they are over 16 ounces?
Not seeing the credits to my account though...Are you?
182 items on their way to me.
Self-fulfill, Baby!
If they arrive in my hands in perfect condition....which hasn't been the case in the last year or so removals.

Amazon Referral Fee Discount on Grocery Products

Oct 2, 2017
To help sellers list more products and keep prices competitive, Amazon is offering a limited-time referral fee discount on Grocery products.

This fee promotion starts at 12:00 a.m. October 15, 2017 (PST), and will run through 11:59 p.m. October 14, 2018 (PST).

During this promotion, the referral fee will be 8% of the total sales price for Grocery products that have a total sales price of $15.00 or less.

This is down from 15% of the total sales price on all Grocery products.
The total sales price is the price paid by the buyer, including the item price and any shipping and gift-wrap charges.
