I think it would best in their best interest to offer to 3P sellers.
I like to think that it's coming.
As do those that advise me financially.
Remember it's not only Bezos but JP Morgan and Buffet.
Neither of those partners are slouches.

Thanks for your opinion.
It matches mine.

Yep.
Many peeps search for a certain part?
Amazon knows what to start selling as versus neighborhood hardware stores.

You're right!
Nope, whining will still happen.

These have been around awhile.
But as per usual I'm such a small seller in the big ocean of Amazon Sellers, I just don't know about these types of additions.

What are Amazon Headline Search Ads?
Amazon made Headline Search Ads available to third party sellers in Seller Central. Up until this point Headline Search Ads were only available in Vendor Central through Amazon Marketing Services. If you use Seller Central you have likely noticed that Headline Search Ads are now available to you, but you might be wondering how exactly this type of advertising campaign works and how best to use it.

2018 Holiday Selling in Toys & Games on Amazon.com

Wow! Seems like the notifications keep getting earlier and earlier.

Dear Seller,

•       Use Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) to ship products to customers.
•       Check your orders frequently in the Manage Orders section of your account.
•       Minimize order cancellations and display the inventory for sale that is available to ship.
•       Ship orders and confirm the shipments in a timely manner.
•       Ensure your seller policies are up to date.
•       If you work with outside drop-shippers, solidify their SLA commitments for providing prompt shipping confirmation.

Thank you for selling on Amazon.

Regards,
Amazon Services

Amazon App Gets Part Finder Feature

For those times when you are faced with matching a fastener or screw you've never seen before and have no idea what search terms to use to find it.
Amazon will find it for you using your smartphone camera, a white surface, and a penny.

Speaking to one of my son's this AM and..
Yep in his geek section of the internet... that's what they are all saying, DoS, DNS attack.
It affected the AWS area, too...that was the key he said.
It wasn't so much an attack on Amazon or it's sales as an attack on Bezos, owner of Washington Post.

Hmmmmm.

Still staying in my little Amazon corner in FL and still thankful my sales were and continue to be good.

Second that!

Financial Advisor meeting last year he and I discussed the pharmaceutical deal along with how this would enable Bezos wish to partner with J. P. Morgan and Buffet for a new healthcare insurance provider.
Laying the groundwork so to speak.
First offering to employees, then to 3rd party sellers, then the public.
We discussed alot more than the above and.....

Fast forward this year.
Financial Advisor meeting to discuss yada yada yada and began to discuss how much of we talked about came true in the last year.
Let's just say what he and I discussed was 98% correct.
Whole Foods, Toys R Us, acquiring pharmaceutical companies, etc etc

In his sector, he said this acquisition is another layer moving forward.
He and my accountant don't even charge me an hourly fee to discuss Amazon (and ebay, brick and mortar vs ecommerce) with me.
Hubster sits there and enjoys listening to us throw out numbers, names, articles, etc to one another.
Not that I'm any kinda soothsayer, but I've just been doing this so very lonnnnnng. 
My views as a seller, what I've been approved for, what I've come across, what new laws are on the books and how it affects we ecommerce/brick and mortar sellers.

We have predictions for next year...healthcare will be interesting to see how this moves forward.
The pill pack purchase alone for FL and nursing homes/assisted livings/independent living for seniors.
Big Business!

Amazon and start-up Xealth are planning a pilot where doctors would 'prescribe' products to be delivered after patients leave the hospital

Amazon, Providence and Xealth are working together on a pilot which could launch in months, according to two people familiar. <-----

The idea is to "prescribe" medical products and services to patients before they're discharged. The products would be fulfilled by Amazon or another e-commerce company, and Prime members could get discounts.

That helps Amazon court a new demographic: Those with complex medical conditions, new mothers, and people recovering from common procedures and surgeries.

My sales were up 3X what they have been.
Warehouse workers were standing/sitting around as they couldn't check items shipped in, couldn't pull items, couldn't pack items...everything down.
IT workers making killer overtime.
Would love to have been a fly on the wall.
Get. It. Fixed! Now.

One of the dark rumors going around is that hackers took the site and the AWS sites down with attacks when they knew it would be at it's busiest as a message to Bezos.
ACK!
Makes sense but I'll just stay in my little corner in FL and thankful my sales were really good!

I just want the cash so I can keep ordering (stuff other than DVDs of course).

The circle of life.
<smile>

I was on letgo.com last week and noted that a person had several LOTS of DVDs.
They are gone.
Might be an option.

Shameful those are allowed to be sold at all.
