Keeping your business safe from fraud

At Amazon, we’re creating effective ways to keep malicious actors out of the marketplace and your business safe.
We’ll cancel any order that we suspect of being related to buyer abuse, and we’ll also close the accounts of buyers engaging in fraud.

* Amazon Central / Let Amazon Giveaway help you drive sales

Amazon Giveaway helps Fulfillment by Amazon sellers increase product awareness and sales.
Giveaway hosts feature their Amazon products as prizes.
We take care of the rest: targeted marketing to customers likely to buy, selection of winners, and shipment of prizes to the winning customers.

We recently launched a new feature that provides sales data for every giveaway created by FBA sellers. This lets sellers calculate the return on what they spend for each giveaway.

Go to Your Giveaways to find the sales data, pick top-performing giveaways, and rerun them using our Copy this giveaway feature. For more information, including how to create a giveaway, go to Amazon Giveaway for FBA.




My opinion: Let's not.

Tax collection for orders shipped to Minnesota State - Effective October 1, 2018

Based on changes to Minnesota State tax law, Amazon will begin calculating, collecting, and remitting sales tax for all orders shipped to customers in Minnesota on October 1, 2018.

Your existing tax calculation settings, order details, and payments reporting will update automatically to reflect this change. No action to your tax settings or seller account is required.

Answers to common questions are available in the Marketplace Tax Collection FAQ. Consider working with your tax advisor to determine any ongoing tax remittance and reporting obligations your business might have.

For more information from Minnesota, see Update for Marketplace Providers.

Free replacements for customers—at no cost to you
from Amazon Seller News

Getting a replacement for an FBA item just got easier for customers. As of September 5, 2018, a customer returning your item can ask to have a replacement sent to them free of charge—and there will be no cost to you.

For you, this means less time focusing on payments and refunds because the sale of the original item is unaffected. For customers, this means more convenient FBA returns, consistent with Amazon returns as a whole.

How it works:

1)    To get a replacement item, a customer starts a return through the Online Returns Center or Customer Service.
2)    If a customer requests a replacement, Amazon ships one from your inventory and asks the customer to send the original item to one of our returns centers. If they don’t send it back, or if the original item is returned damaged, Amazon will reimburse you according to the FBA customer returns policy. See the Replacements section of the policy for more information.


So I lose money at Amazon's cost and another 45 day wait I'm sure.
Ugh.

* Beyond eBay & Amazon / Re: Facebook analytics

I miss the days of the analytics we could sign up to receive via eBay.
Can't remember the company (Bobby would) but it was a phenomenal service.
Where your buyer came from, what search words they used, hours/minutes they stayed on your sales page, hours of day items were bought and more.

Now, that info was helpful.

This info/analytics not so much.

To be honest, I've never done MCF.
We used to have several sellers here who were into MCF big and tied it together with affiliate ads.
Those sellers not only used eBay but also their own websites.

You're on the right track with the stats you posted though.

Gimme a couple of days to get back into the swing and I'll do more research.

I'm pleased with what I have up on eBay and it's sales and would feel comfortable with using MCF if the cost justified.
You can and could double your sales (if not more) by using this service and I applaud that you are considering.

From what I hear it works smooth as silk.

I don't work hard enough on eBay or sell enough on eBay to justify the extra $.

Blinded by the big boys?
Nope.
Nada.
Zip.
Zilch...Not me.

I like having my little corner of the ecommerce world and you're right, when it ends it ends.
Which for me looks like it will be coming spring of 2019 or after the holiday season of 2019.
I'm getting too old.
<smile>

I've been outta town taking a break for the last week.
I'm pulling my bootstraps up and getting back into the swing of ecommerce.
And not with the biggest smile on my face.

It's nice to get away.
