My current IPI is 568 and still climbing higher. If anyone needs assistance in working how to increase their score, don't  hesitate to ask.

If anyone does FBA, I am sure you are aware of the IPI. Here is a brief synopsis from the forum moderator Susan:

"Good inventory management can lead to reduced costs, improved profitability, and more business growth for FBA sellers. Improved inventory management will also help your products be received and delivered to customers more quickly. The Inventory Performance Index87 (IPI) measures inventory management over time, including how well you balance inventory levels and sales, fix listing problems that make your inventory unavailable for purchase, and keep popular products in stock. We will continue to improve the IPI score to ensure it encourages and reflects inventory management best practices.

As there has been some confusion about the new metric, here are answers to frequently asked questions:
What does my IPI score mean?

An IPI score above 450 means your FBA inventory is performing well, and a score above 550 indicates your inventory is a top performer. A score under 350 could lead to limits being placed on your FBA storage and to overage fees, as outlined in the new storage limit policy"

Buying bread from a man in Brussels
He was six-foot-four and full of muscles
I said, "do you speak-a my language?"
He just smiled and gave me a vegemite sandwich

Removed? Good for you! Feedback rate is horrible anymore on Amazon. Unlike the bay...where everyone and their mother-in-law leaves feedback.

I'm not sending in anything more than 1 unit per SKU for Christmas starting September. I'll build up from there.

I replied "very interested"...knowing it would cost an arm and a leg per month so I'd never sign up for it anyways. I don't think they would do it anyways. I think these polls are just to keep us distracted and "hope" for some positive changes in the future.

Well, I haven't started any promotions yet, but I did actually purchase a monthly store subscription and have been listing like crazy all of my free removals from FBA. Still haven't gotten to over half of it yet but some of it is already selling. Once I'm done listing stuff in the next week or two, maybe I'll have my own special "Prime Day" where I go crazy nuts and set up a promotion to all of my "fans" (ha... just liked the sound of actually speaking it).

Oh, and here's your bump...

I just pulled a bunch of junk out of FBA with the free removals. I'm not sure I want to send anything else in right now unless it's selling like hotcakes.
That should reduce the whining on Amazon forums by 1.5 - 2 percent.

So... when exactly is Prime Day? Will we find out only two weeks ahead of time like last year?

I already sell internationally through FBA export. I'm not sending junk to Australia. That is such a joke. Although, maybe I can find some stuff that would go better in the land down under.... where women glow and men plunder...

dang it.. now I've got that song stuck in my head
* Amazon Central / Re: Fake Reviews on Amazon

I never realized that the fake reviews was that intense. Yes, I knew about how fake reviews bumped up products in the search results but never realized that there was a "business" for fake reviews. Sheesh.

It always amazes me when I run across vendors that freely share or expose their sources.   E.g., at fairs and trade shows I often see boxes in the recycle bins or trash areas with the return address still attached.  smh

I've gotten a couple of them like that. Gotta love dumpster diving!

As an eBay newbie, I was hoping to get some help from some veterans. I would go to the forums over there but they seem kinda dead. Plus, it's not as easy to navigate (at least not for me, a  mere simpleton and peasant).

I am thinking about upgrading to a paid basic membership so I could list additional product to clear out. I would like to create a promotion that if customers buy 3 or more videos, they would be priced at 5.00 each instead of their regular listing price. I don't want to do that with all of my inventory, just certain skus. Is there a way to do that? If so, how? If not, is there something else I can do similar to what I was thinking?

Yes, there are many sellers that do this. Some do it with the product they order from Alibaba/China. Others use it to ship directly to Amazon. It would make sense if Amazon itself wasn't selling anything because it would save on time and added shipping expenses. But since Amazon likes to steal seller's vendor data and then strike a deal with the vendor directly, I wouldn't do it.

I have noticed the same thing. I have to type something in the search bar for the page to be enabled. That is so annoying when trying to open multiple cases with limited time.

I've never really cared for NECCO. But, it is a shame to see a long-time company finally close its doors.
