The "bots" flagged a whole slew of products such as books, software, etc. that were supposedly "pesticides". There's at least 16-17 threads on the Amazon forums right now about it. I guess the person that wrote the programming for the bot wasn't the sharpest knife in the drawer.

Dear Seller,

As part of our ongoing efforts to protect our customers and enhance the customer experience, we are updating the requirements to offer products that qualify as pesticides or pesticide devices. Pesticides and pesticide devices include a broad set of products, and it can be hard to identify which products qualify and why. You are offering, or have previously offered, products that are affected.

To continue your current offers on affected products after June 7, 2019, you will need to complete a brief online training and pass the associated test. You will not be able to create new offers on any affected products until you receive approval. You are required to take the training and pass the test only once, even if you have offers on multiple products. This training will help you understand your obligations under EPA regulations as a seller of pesticides and pesticide devices.

To avoid interruption of your offers, you may either click this link to Seller Central to start the approval process using a sample ASIN: https://sellercentral.amazon.com/hz/approvalrequest/restrictions/approve?asin=B0002YP612, or request approval using any of your ASINs listed above.

Frequently asked questions:

1. Why am I receiving this message?
You are receiving this message because you are offering, or have previously offered, one or more pesticides or pesticide devices. EPA regulations define pesticides and pesticide devices to include a broad set of products, including many that you might not expect. For example, they can include:

• Ultraviolet lights;
• Air treatment units or filters;
• Water treatment units or filters;
• Sound generators;
Insect traps; or <---this is what I had years ago offered. YEARS. FIVE plus years ago.
• Products that make pesticidal claims, such as "disinfects" or "sanitizes".

For additional information, see EPA guidance on what a pesticide is: https://www.epa.gov/minimum-risk-pesticides/what-pesticide and what a pesticide device is: https://www.epa.gov/safepestcontrol/pesticide-devices-guide-consumers#2.

You can also see Amazon’s Pesticides and Pesticide Devices policy for more information: https://sellercentral.amazon.com/gp/help/202115120.

2. What does this mean for me?
To create a new offer on any pesticide or pesticide device, or to avoid removal of your existing offers of these products after June 7, 2019, you must obtain approval by completing an online training and passing the associated test. You need to take the training and pass the test only once, even if you have offers on multiple products.

3. How do I seek approval to sell the affected products?
There are two ways to request approval. You can click on this link https://sellercentral.amazon.com/hz/approvalrequest/restrictions/approve?asin=B0002YP612  to start the approval process using a sample ASIN (you are under no obligation to list against this ASIN, but can use it to trigger an approval request).

Alternatively, you can use one of your affected products as follows:
• Login to Seller Central, click Inventory, and select Add a Product.
• Input one of your pesticide or pesticide device ASINs from the list provided above.
• In the search results, click the "Listing limitations apply" link next to the ASIN.
• Click the Request Approval button to start the approval process.

4. What does the approval process consist of?
You will be required to complete a brief online training and achieve a passing score of at least 80% on the associated test. Only U.S. sellers are permitted to request approval.

5. Can I still use FBA?
Effective June 7, 2019, only sellers approved to sell the affected products may send shipments of those products to fulfillment centers.

6. How will this affect my existing FBA inventory?
If you have remaining inventory of qualifying products in Amazon fulfillment centers, you can continue selling your remaining inventory until June 7, 2019. After June 7, you either need to (i) obtain approval to continue to sell the affected products or (ii) create a Removal Order for return or disposal of your remaining FBA inventory. For assistance creating a Removal Order, please visit our How to Create Removal Orders page: https://sellercentral.amazon.com/gp/help/external/200280650.

Thank you,
Amazon Services

* Everything eBay / eBay Store Levels and Selling Fees
« Last post by Southern Jewel's Fab Finds on April 08, 2019, 11:46:38 AM »
I decided to change my eBay account to a lowest level store level.
It has the vacation mode that I want/need.
It's only $4.95 a month as I agreed to a year.

As I'm slowing my Amazon down only 210+ sku's down from over 5000.
Woo Hoo!

I used to really, REALLY enjoyed finding items that I know will sell on eBay.
Vintage, Collectibles, Hard To Find items, etc.

Having a ball scouring thrift stores for items.
I do have lots of experiencefrom years on eBay plus an account that currently has over 35,000 positive feedback.
Now to list them.
<smile>

Whoops forgot to add the link to eBay Store Selling Fees

From what I've seen, several eBay sellers are already talking about jumping ship because of this.

Every time there is a new policy:
They ALWAYS talk about jumping ship.

* Everything eBay / New PayPal Policy Regarding Fees and Refunds
« Last post by WayOutWest on April 05, 2019, 05:23:51 PM »
Effective May 7th, 2019

"We're changing how we treat refunds. If you refund (partially or fully) a transaction to a buyer or a donation to a donor, there are no fees to make the refund, but the fees you originally paid as the seller will not be returned to you."

In other words, the 2.9% fee from the original transaction will no longer be refunded (as well as the original 30¢, which they've always kept).

I was wondering about their pricing. It seemed way overpriced to me, but a lot of cosmetic products are way overpriced, imho.
