* Amazon Central / Re: Amazon Toy Category Now Restricted?

Yep.
Saw that on the forums.

I didn't receive the original.

Speculation (yammerings) on the Amazon Forums is that more than likely Amazon swooped in and purchased all the Toys R Us merchandise.
And I did see a familiary name pop out that might just be one of our members.
<wink>

Old Seller posted this on the forums (that's his member name not that I'm callin' names)
*****************************************************************************************************************
"Dear seller,
Please read this email carefully. The listing information described below may affect your ability to sell certain products.
As part of our ongoing efforts to provide the best possible customer experience, we are implementing approval requirements for Toys products.
What does this mean for me?
Effective on 2018-04-18, you will need approval to list the affected products. If you do not obtain approval to sell these products prior to 2018-04-18, your listings for these products will be removed.

Why am I receiving this message?
You are receiving this message because you have sold affected products in the past. There is no penalty associated with this action.

How do I seek approval to sell the affected products?
If you would like to seek approval to sell the affected products, complete the following steps to start the application process:
In Seller Central, click the Inventory menu, and then select Add a Product.
Search for the ASIN you want to sell.

After much gnashing of teeth and confusion it seems it applies to 5 sub categories. here’s a reply from SS late in the day:-

"Greetings from Amazon.
From your correspondence, I understand that your concern is regarding the email received about approval for toy category.
Please note that this is just a generalized email that has been sent out to most of the sellers on the Amazon platform for category approval.
I would like to inform you that there is no action required on your part if you have not listed the products in the Toy category.

However, in future if you are listing products in the toy category, you would need to request approval using the below steps:
1.In Seller Central, click the Inventory menu, and then select Add a Product.
2.Search for the ASIN you want to sell.
3.In the search results, click the Listing limitations apply link next to the ASIN.
4.Click the Request Approval button to start the application process

Toy safety gating team had multiple overlaps in their processes for approving sellers that sell products that sell toys, therefore they have launched one approval process which will encompass all of the ASINs being captured by the below multiple gating categories into one category.

The below gating categories have now been combined into one, meaning all sellers that apply for approval for the below categories will now apply to one Toy gating category.

• Toy Building Blocks
• Learning Toys
• Infant Toys
• RC Vehicles
• Outdoor Toys


If you have received approval previously for the above mentioned categories, you need to to apply for approval again, and your product listings will not be affected in any way."

Many people have received that email. Most (if not all) never received the "original" email informing them that toys would be a restricted category.

From the way the arguments went before the justices, it is definitely up-in-the-air on what the outcome will be. Both sides argued (and made valid points) about small businesses being hurt.

Yeah, that's gotta be it.  Good thing they don't know about the 40+ shirts and the 30+ ties I've bought from JCPenny  :-X :laugh

Much better quality from JCPenny than what you would get on Amazon. I know because that's where I buy my shirts and ties also  :laugh

I was invited, too.

My purchase of clothing, shoes, accessories this past year is zip, nada, zilcho.

Amazon is trying to get you to start buying more clothing from them.
Yep.

Maybe Amazon is trying to get me to start buying more clothing from them?   :?

Hello from Fulfillment by Amazon,

On March 1, 2018, we announced changes to our monthly and long-term storage fees. This included a new storage limit policy, which states starting July 1, 2018, sellers with an Inventory Performance Index (IPI) below 350 may be subject to quarterly storage limits. Removing excess and aged inventory may help you reduce storage costs and improve your IPI.

Therefore, starting today, April 18, 2018, for a limited time, FBA will waive your removal fees for any removal order that you submit for inventory that you have in our US fulfillment centers.
 
To take action, in Seller Central, go to Manage Excess Inventory (Pro sellers) or FBA Inventory Age (Individual sellers). Then choose Create removal order from the menu next to any FBA item in your inventory.
 
If you remove inventory during this promotion, you will not be able to send us more units of the ASINs you remove until either:

    August 1, 2018, when these restrictions will be lifted


OR

    When your inventory level for the removed ASINs falls below our projection of your sales for the next eight weeks based on your average sales rate for the removed ASINs during the preceding 90 days

Note that removals during peak and promotional periods can take longer to process than the standard 10 to 14 days. Learn more about free removals.

If you have inventory for an ASIN that is slow-moving or has not been selling, take advantage of this opportunity to remove it for free and avoid paying additional storage fees for it. This promotion will run for a limited time, and after it ends, standard removal-order fees will apply.

Learn more at Remove inventory from fulfillment centers.

Thank you for selling on Amazon.

Sincerely,

The Fulfillment by Amazon team

Massive peanut butter fan.
A grilled peanut butter banana sandwich?
Once a year treat for me...swooooooon!

I'm known for my nightly dipping into the peanut butter jar.
