They're selling fairly well on eBay. Once first of the year rolls around, I'll go through the inventory I have here and see what to do. I might get rid of them then but I want one more Christmas to try and make some cash.

Maybe I'll do what other sellers were doing Monday morning before Prime Day started: Jack up the prices.

I figure wait for the state(s) to demand the filing by smaller sellers. Which, will eventually come, but I don't see a reason to make it happen any sooner than necessary.

Put them all in a pile. Pour lighter fluid on the pile. Light match. Put lit match on pile. Burn baby, burn!

I thought along the same lines that it was a DoS attack or something similar. Wouldn't surprise me that it was successful. Amazon's platform is older than dirt.
Amazon has been wanting to get into the healthcare market for awhile now. Makes sense since Amazon wants to be everything to everyone. I wonder how long this has been in the works.

Sounds interesting. Get a reduction in processing fees = more profit for me. Sign my fat little self up!

Have you considered looking into selling the DVDs as a lot?

Yes, I have. However, I would really hate to let everything go for 10-15 cents each.

I'd rather sit on them and sell them to get some decent cash flowing in. Some will be sold at a profit, many at a loss. I just want the cash so I can keep ordering (stuff other than DVDs of course).

It would be nice if buyers could actually purchase something. It has been a regular sales day for me--nothing special. I'm hoping tomorrow is a different story.

I've seen the eBay ads. I've also noticed Amazon ratcheting up their advertising as well. I guess they need more suckers customers to buy their cheap Chinese junk.

Good for you for cleaning out the closets and making some dough.

I've been selling a LOT of DVDs on eBay since we had the first free removal April 18th. Been cranking out around 15-20 a week. Barely  makes a dent in the approximately 1,400 - 1,500 I removed for free though. Come August 1, I'll send one unit of each title back in and see if it increases my sell-through rate. I'll leave them at a higher price so I don't aggravate another seller's repricer. I'll just discount them for business customers to get them moving. Tired of the race to the bottom.
I am as ready as I'll ever be. I added business pricing to some products as well.

I was just reading this on yahoo finance and got a kick out of the user comments

One comment was by Jay who said "Why is this in the Yahoo Finance section, when it's clearly an ad for Amazon and Bezos - and Yahoo wonders why no one trusts it." I guess it was a dig at Amazon and Yahoo both. Why not kill two birds with one stone, I guess :)

I've  used about 50 of the 200 free additional listings. I'll be adding some more stuff this week now that I'm somewhat caught up.  Had to drop off some stuff at the UPS store to be scanned since my printer/scanner will only do 8.5x14 max. I looked up the cost of a flatbed scanner for my needs. Minimum $2,000 and the decent ones are well over $3,000. No thanks. UPS has a customer for life! ha!

Yes, I have been offered the 200 free listings but I haven't had the need to use them yet. As I put more stuff up there, I just might need those extra listings. I hope they're still available when I do need them.

I noticed the same thing. Kinda cool to see "unlimited storage" across the board  :D!
I don't think 3P will ever completely go away. Niche or high demand commodity items are always going to be there. The only problem is, determining which commodity items are going to sell (as well as be allowed).

I wish they would make professional selling accounts mandatory and then raise the monthly fee by 20 bucks a month. That would clean out a lot of crap.

Tax Jar = $$$ down the drain
Prepared? Kinda sorta. I guess. Still determining what specials I am going to run. Oh well, we'll see.

I am seeing more and more success on eBay. I am hoping the holidays will really kick it into high gear for sales there.
On the occasions I do become extremely agitated, I recommend Alibaba and tell them that is where they can buy legitimate brand-name stuff for dirt cheap and make tons of money on Amazon.

And if they are that stupid to actually do it, they don't need to be selling on Amazon. Just wait for them to get suspended so I can then yell at them for buying stuff from Alibaba thinking it was legitimate.
