I met this people today.  Matter of fact I won 6 months free. 
Monthly fee is only $20, commissions are lower than Amazon.

Check it out.  Scott reedy is the seller Recruitment Director.  If anyone is interested in talking to him, I have a phone number and email for him.  Let me know and I will get you that info privately.

* Amazon Central / How can we dispute the storage fees?

Is there a way to dispute Storage fees?

It sure looks they they based ours on and average of the past months (excluding June).
In June we got a ton of stuff back - like a ton! Even a pallet of returns was delivered
And there is relatively no difference in charged! 
We haven't shipped must in

Can we dispute it?
* Amazon Central / August 15th is coming - new 6 month long term fees
« on: June 09, 2015, 11:06:29 AM »
At this time I BELIEVE the only way to see which items will be charged the new 6 month long term fees is to DOWNLOAD the inventory health report in reports > fulfillment
In column AU you will find the charges for all 6 month long term items. 
In column AO you will find the charges for all 12 month long term items

Our 6 month column added up to $1660.74
But out 12 month column was only $33.89

I immediately started doing removal orders for Christmas items that I could swear I requested back back in February!!!!
* Amazon Central / Category approvals issued instantly for thousands!
« on: June 06, 2015, 03:23:26 AM »
Ok nothing official said about this yet
But on Friday 6/5 amazon screwed things up!
Sellers were able to request approval in categories- clothing, jewelry, shoes, health & beauty, grocery, automotive and every other category that needs ungating
And instantly get approved
No pictures
No flat files
No nothing!

Was this FREE DAY an attempt by amazon to shut down all those "ungating" services that have steadily been popping up?  Who knows

Personally I hope they revoke all those approved and start randomly request manufactures/wholesale invoices from sellers previously approved
Because they all had to check the box that said they were buying from the manufacture or wholesale .... So make them provide proof once in a while!!!

* Amazon Central / Amazon merchant growth in 2014 ... Thanks to eBay!
« on: April 07, 2015, 12:15:59 AM »
eBay's once-loyal merchants are moving more of their business to Amazon, saying they get more for their money by selling merchandise via the Web retailer.

Amazon's pool of merchants climbed to more than 2 million in 2014, while the number of sellers on eBay has remained flat at about 25 million in the past two years. Businesses that at first set up online storefronts on eBay say they're surprised how quickly sales surge on Amazon once products appear on both sites.
* Amazon Central / Lush Cosmetics
« on: March 20, 2015, 02:10:58 AM »
Personally never heard of them
But they mean business
This company called Lush Cosmetics is suing amazon sellers for selling there products
Apparently they buy it direct from Lush on their website in quantities that are obviously not consumer usage

Long story short
They serve you with paper of the federal lawsuit
They either sue you or you pay the $50k and sign that you won't ever sell their stuff

Seems like there is some link between Lush Cosmetics andMacys as people reported getting Lush Cosmetics in Macy bags

* Amazon Central / That phone call might not be from Amazon!
« on: February 06, 2015, 01:13:43 PM »
I read about this on Facebook

I want to first say ...
When Amazon calls me - I always make them tell me the last four digits of my bank account.  If they can't or won't I certainly am not telling them my information after all, they called me!

BEWARE!  Copied from Thrifting for Profit (Facebook group)>>>
Posted by Mark Bendickson

HEADS UP, I received a call this morning from the Atlanta area, 404-345-1000. There are reports online about issues with this number calling people linked to Amazon, and as we all know fraud is rampant in this world. If you want to educate yourself about this one, read about it here:

In the past I've made it a habit to not picking up calls that have no caller ID, but this can also work against you when you are trying to communicate with Amazon, Distributors and Wholesalers.

For those of you who want an extra layer of protection, check out the free Google feature called Google Voice. Not only is it a good buffer layer for unwanted calls, it can become your official answering service.

Later he posted this>>>

Alas, the plot thickens. I sent an email to Seller Support indicating the call I got and the reports that went with it, and asked it to be escalated to the appropriate levels. I got a confirmation the report had been filed, a response from a tech who incorrectly stated the problem, did not escalate and closed the case. When I clicked on the follow through case reference #, it reported as not being a valid case. When cross referenced by viewing my open cases, there was not a case shown. So, I called back and requested to talk with a manger, explaining the issue at hand, the inappropriate response and the possibility of involvement from the tech (probably unlikely but who knows) and the fact that my open case disappeared completely. I'm now forwarding all my documentation to her for investigation, as well as contacting an Amazon Fraud Investigation Team at stop-spoofing >AT< Put that email address in your files should you get such a fraudulent call.


Well, they've closed the case already and only asked me for feedback regarding the supervisor who helped me.  I guess we don't get to hear what happens with the tech.  The missing report has not shown back up yet.  Game over.

I'm betting Steve spends more ... Lol

"While the split props up PayPal with $5 billion in cash and no debt, it leaves eBay saddled with $7.6 billion in debt (against $2 billion in net cash) and an online auction business that revolutionized e-commerce early on, but is now showing its age, the website said."
* Everything eBay / eBay to cut 2400 jobs
« on: January 23, 2015, 03:53:21 AM »

EBay also said it plans to cut its workforce by 7 percent, or 2,400 jobs, in the current quarter.
apparently we can blame this on New York!

This product has been identified as a toy gun or “imitation weapon” that is prohibited by Amazon’s Restricted Products policy. State laws, including New York General Business Law Section 873, prohibit the sale of certain imitation weapons that can reasonably be perceived to be an actual gun. Amazon policy requires that third party sellers comply with all applicable federal, state and local laws. To help ensure that sellers comply with New York law and Amazon policies, we have suspended the ability of third party sellers to offer this product.
