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...

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).


I hear ya!
There is a huge retail apocalypse that isn't being discussed.
The jobs that are lost.
I feel for them.
With our local Sears closing down, there was a news reporter interviewing employees and some of them had been there since the 80's.
Can you imagine?
I can't.

You're right, there were too many stores being built.
Time to get with the times and move forward.
My children would rather save their time by buying online, having it delivered and enjoying their time doing other things.

I watched a documentary last year or the year before (and also a 60 minutes segment) that many cities are turning their malls into apartments.
And it's working!
Excellent article

The individual stores are being turned into apartments/condo's on their 2nd and 3rd floors.
Security won't be an issue and easily taken care of.
The dead food court, will be filled with what people are looking to eat.
Quirky, local, organic, healthy, fresh foods.
Similar to this place I enjoy in nearby Tampa. Armature Works
Along with a lounge or two/coffee bars/craft beer.
Using the larger stores for grocery stores.
USPS/Fed Ex/USPS stores will be available.

The one that's being discussed in Tampa will have a gym with swimming pool added. Exercise running tracks in the lesser busy areas of the bottom floor.
I'd consider it as a soon to be retiring adult and it would be a great solution for my disabled daughter.

I did see that an old mall in TN was turned into a medical facility.
Smart move.
It had different offices for doctors, testing, walk in clinic etc all under one roof.

Our oldest mall in town was turned into one of those mega churches.

There are uses, people just have to accept moving forward instead of backward...so the property isn't going to waste.

It's a good site.
I found it through a Reddit discussion.
I'm not sure of the quality of the items, but there were no gripes.

Thanks!
I've been cleaning out my own DVD's in the last month.
Grandchildren are now in possession of the Disney dvd's.
I'm keeping 4 that I have a hard time streaming from any of the legit sites.
The rest I'm working on deciding where to sell.

I can remember my first one of these.
I received it last December and it scared the bejesus outta me.
I wasn't expecting a payment drop.
Nor was I expecting one for that amount of money.
Had to do hella amount of searching out of why I received this payment.
I had to turn to Seller Support for the answer. 
UGH!

I haven't moved forward with the new option of choose which payment option.
Payment faster for a 1.5% charge?
Nope.
I don't receive enough of these types of payments to warrant a charge of 1.5%

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.
