Changes to Marketplace Tax Collections

Beginning on January 1, 2018, Amazon will calculate, collect, and remit sales tax on third-party seller sales shipped to Washington State.
Washington is the first state to enact legislation requiring online marketplaces, like Amazon, to collect sales tax on behalf of their third-party sellers.
We will automatically take these actions for your Washington orders; you don’t need to update your tax collection settings or account information.

Oh Dear Lawd!
Worked up a shipment today and one of them goes to MD!!!
I'm cancelling it.
I'm not taking any chances.
Just self-fulfill the almost 100 items or cancel the shipment and hope that it goes to another warehouse.

I understand that you want to know more about the Amazon Services LLC (beta) tab how some Business Buyers use a different disbursement cycle than your regular disbursement cycle and also if Amazon signed you up for this.

The reason to this is that Certain orders from business customers need to be recorded by Amazon under separate legal entities (Amazon Payments Inc. and Amazon Services LLC), so these transactions are displayed separately. You will continue to be paid in the bank account you have designated. Any orders reflecting under the Amazon Services LLC payments tab are orders in which an approved business buyer purchased an item and paid by invoice.

Invoices have payment terms (such as net 30), which determine the due date of the invoice (30 days after invoice date in case of net 30). Amazon credits sellers on their Selling on Amazon account for these orders when the buyer has paid the invoice.

Furthermore, Amazon supports the risk and pays sellers in case buyer payment has not been received 7 days past the due date of the invoice. You will continue to receive payments based on your current payment cycle.

For example, if you are on a 14-day cycle and you receive an order on January 1, the payment for this order will be initiated on January 15. However, since the cycle is based on when the orders are placed by the customer, the payments from these two different entities (Amazon Payments Inc. and Amazon Services LLC) may land on different days.

I've had 2 boxes of inventory shipped to Baltimore Amazon Warehouse.
They have been delivered.
This is both verified on my Seller Dashboard, UPS, the warehouse and via Seller Support.

Oh, did I mention that December 1st and they have been sitting on Amazon's Baltimore Dock since the 1st of December?

I'm not alone.

Thread: Baltimore Warehouse

I've been advised to wait to file reconciliation until the 16th.
And we all know that often doesn't go as planned.

From the thread I learned something new.
Anyone know if you incur storage fees for packages that were delivered but not checked in?
Yes, you start paying for storage as soon as the box is marked delivered, I believe.

I don't know but I'm asking Seller Support.

This happened to me last year and I fought it tooth and nail.
Shipment found in January and all my holiday seasonal items were placed into my inventory....way too late.

This doesn't bode well for me or my inventory.

I received an email from Amazon (yes I checked headers) yesterday that took me aback.
It stated my payment was on the way.
Payment drop amount was not the same as my seller dashboard.
Payment drop date was off.
Got with Amazon and they validated it was a legit payment drop.
I questioned it and received screenshots and a much more in depth explanation.

Amazon Services LLC (beta)
Business to Business sale by Amazon and is processed separately by Amazon.
The disbursement date may also be on a different date than your regular disbursement.
Amazon Services LLC makes the payments for transactions in which buyers agree to pay after the shipment of goods or completion of services."

I don't remember signing up for this or if I was given an opt out instead of a sign up.
I'm usually on top of these types of emails that are sign up for this service or opt out.

Does she need my mailing address for my gift?

My two 'bitcoins' on this issue.
Bezo's will make his own.
He's never been one to fit in but to strive for outside the box.

Dinner out with your better half.
You're Welcome.
We have one in Lakeland.
I wouldn't call us rural with close to 175,000 residents.
BUT, we do have excellent access to I-4, airports and trains.

Now Ruskin, FL....used to be rural but has close proximity to rail, major roads, airports and trains.

On Reddit the other day in the FL subreddit a pic was posted of an Amazon plane (similar size as FED EX/UPS) at Tampa International Airport.
How kewl is that?
Hopefully the new returns page fixes that.
Give it a year.
Maybe longer.

I've seen them on our local craigslist and on the letitgo app.
They aren't selling for as much but about the same when you take off fee's from eBay/Amazon.
The above stated from another proud nerd.

Coming home knowing upkeep needed to be done.
How you manage both is beyond me and these creaky old bones of mine.

Unless they are starting their own type of bitcoin.
I never heard of it either.
Boy, I wish I'd have purchased that dot com ages ago.
I can think of several biz's that would've offered a pretty penny.

I don't know what is going on in the warehouses.
I received requested removal items in bubble out envelopes that should've been in boxes.
Damaged of course.
That's just pitiful.

I believe it would be in Amazon's best interest to remove any negative that is left for an FBA order.
It's smart in the long run.
Buyers don't always know they are buying from a 3rd party seller and believe that if they leave a negative Amazon will swoop in and take care of the purchase.

Had one yesterday that was an Amazon Fulfilled and arrived damaged.
Filed for strike thru/removal.
Filed a second time.
Upgraded to Team Leader.
Finally, yesterday afternoon the team leader...Oh of course that should be struck through...Amazon warehouse shipped the item and it arrived damaged.

Not right that we the sellers have to work through the bots to get this issue taken care of.

I hear you loud and clear.
Product Review.
A feedback regarding color was recently left for me.
Item has white background.
I checked on 2 iPads, 1 iPad mini, 1 laptop, 1 desktop computer.
All show background of item with a white background.
I can't help customer's settings on their means of viewing Amazon are skewed...the item has a white background.
Customer states item page looks gold.
Plus, item delivered late by Amazon.

Removal or strike-thru of feedback.

Modified to add...
I sent this to issue to jeff.
I pay high fees to Amazon to insure my customers receive their package on time.
And also to insure that I am treated as a priority as a seller.

I hate having to do this, but if he would only look at the 'little' folks selling on his venue, he would understand that we work hard and follow the rules.
