You got me beat. My last one was in March. And the payout wasn't even three dollars.

Our city leaders are more worried about getting the new football stadium ready for the first home game. Since my parents live about a mile down the road from the stadium, every time I go visit them something else has been done. And a little re-purposing was done but it had no involvement from the mayor or city council. All they care about is how many new things they can blow a bunch of money on. But the city pension is not fully funded and the only re-purposing of buildings occurred at the mall by a company that sells power sports equipment such as Can-am, Sea-Doo, Ski-Doo, Kawasaki, Arctic Cat,  motorcycles, ATVs, personal watercraft, side by sides, Spyders, dirt bikes and snowmobiles. The opening will be very soon and it takes up the entire old Macy's building at the Mall. That is the first new business going into the mall area in years and years. Almost as many closed restaurants as there are ones still operating.

Our city leaders just don't get it. Just because this is a poorer area than other neighborhoods doesn't mean we have to settle for a bunch of old dilapidated buildings and structures.

Yep. Capitalism 101...if it can be flipped on Amazon, then it's fair game!

I have never had a need for this type of service. I've managed my own stuff being labeled, bagged and sent to FBA quite well for years now.

I think we might have to open up our own marketplace. Get our friends and family to advertise it for us. I can advertise it to the kids in my class and we all know that kids will spread the word like wildfire.

I love how some of these things are being bought and then re-sold on Amazon. Oh, the irony!

It is my guess that you see empty buildings being re-purposed in areas that have some scarcity in land. We do not have the same level of scarcity as some other city have. Which makes our blight that much more horrendous.

What I can't figure out is... if Amazon is going to cover these anyways, why should I have to wait up to 37 days for my money? And why should I have to pay to get my money? Sounds like Nigerian scam somewhere in the details...

Introducing Pay by Invoice with Guaranteed Payments

As previously announced, we are now offering Amazon Business customers the “Pay by Invoice” payment method. Pay by Invoice gives qualified Amazon Business customers the option to receive an invoice with an extended payment due date. Pay by Invoice represents a new growth opportunity for sellers by encouraging Amazon Business customers to use the Amazon Marketplace as their primary channel for B2B purchases.

What does this mean for you?
As a seller on Amazon, you do not need to do anything to make your items available for purchase by Amazon Business customers using Pay by Invoice. Your products will automatically become available for invoiced purchasing with no added fees or effort. Amazon will handle all aspects of the invoicing process, including credit risk assessment, billing, and collection activities. For all Pay by Invoice transactions, payment to you is guaranteed, even if the Amazon Business customer is late or defaults on their payment to Amazon.

For any invoiced orders that you receive on Amazon, your payment on these orders will be credited to the available balance of your Selling on Amazon account as soon as the customer payment is processed and no later than the 7th day past the due date of the customer’s invoice.

Get Paid Faster
We are also launching the ability for you to “Get Paid Faster” for invoiced orders. With this feature, your payment for Pay by Invoice orders will be credited to the available balance of your Selling on Amazon account immediately after shipment for a processing charge of 1.5% of the invoiced order amount. To take advantage of this option, change your invoiced order payment settings to get paid faster for all your future invoiced orders.

The invoiced order payment process is in effect starting today, August 8, 2018, although it may take longer to receive your first invoiced order due to the limited number of Amazon Business buyers qualified for Pay by Invoice.

You might want to read this. Media products such as books and DVDs for store owners are going up to 12% for both store and non-store subscribers. With no change (reduction) in pay-pal fees, the difference in the cost of selling media between Amazon and Ebay will shrink. I just hope I get to keep my small discount with having the top-rated-plus status.

Other important information is in the update. It might be worth a read depending on what you sell there.

Just came across this and thought it was a good read about a new e-commerce website

Many people do not think about one of the major causes of the retail brick and mortar apocalypse: There are too many stores. At one time, we had 5-6 times more stores per capital than in Europe. Maintaining that type of asset and infrastructure protection is expensive. The landscape for retail brick and mortar is not going to get better for a long time. Many companies are still trying to expand whereas others are trying to downsize. Until a good equilibrium is found, you will continue to see retail in the news.

At our local mall area, there are so many empty storefronts. Inside the mall is even worse. Sears is empty, Dillard's is empty, the food court only has like 4 or 5 stores. There are only two restaurants where you can gain entry directly from outside as well as inside the mall. An empty Walmart across the street from the mall as well as two mainly empty shopping strips, an empty Toys R Bust store, 5 or 6 vacant restaurants surrounding the mall, and I could go on and on. That's just the mall area. The city north of us on Lake Erie is about 10 times worse since the steel mill and ship yard shuttered. There are literally hundreds and hundreds of empty commercial buildings, churches, homes that should be condemned but aren't, etc.

Too many stores in any area will eventually make for a lot of empty storefronts, especially when your stupid mayor and city officials allow companies to suck up empty lots and build instead of steering them toward revitalizing existing commercial buildings that have been vacant for years (and in some cases, well over a decade).
For some unknown reason, I just noticed this thread and took a look at It looks to be pretty cool, initially. Right now I am too tired at 3 a.m. to really look but some of the stuff reminds me of Bonanza (a little). I like the subscription prices. Seems to be a lot of templates to choose from, also. I'll have to look more at that when if I get a chance.

Heh, I did that on a hot seller that my other two main competitors were out of stock and weren't available for shipping for almost a week. I made out like a bandit on that one. Sold around 35-40 units that day and made a couple hundred extra profit on the mark-up.
I am more than happy to take one for the team  ;)
