Heh, I did that on a hot seller that my other two main competitors were out of stock and weren't available for shipping for almost a week. I made out like a bandit on that one. Sold around 35-40 units that day and made a couple hundred extra profit on the mark-up.
I am more than happy to take one for the team  ;)
Wow. Just Wow.
Already happening on the forums now. Ha!

I'll still go down to Home Depot and, if I am really feeling like I want to be tortured, Lowes
No, but Jeff Bezos is.
Offering to third-party sellers? We're disposable scum of the earth whose only mission is to enrich Bezos. At least that's how Amazon acts. I doubt third-party sellers will able to benefit from the health insurance unless we bought it outright on our own. I doubt we'd get any kind of break after xx years of service.

Well, the "official" story is that Amazon did not have enough servers ready to handle the increase in traffic. Yeah right.
I didn't see any responses to the thread, only a link to a CNBC article detailing how an RA seller got suspended for inauthentic goods. If anyone has been reading the forums, it should be clear that Amazon is going to be fine with RA up to a point. But once the hammer comes down, it is extremely difficult to get reinstated from a counterfeit claim. If the couple had been doing their due diligence, they would have seen the risk in what they were doing. I'm not criticizing RA itself as many of us got our start that way. But that was back in the good ole days. Times they are a changing.

Yes, it does seem to be earlier than previous years.

Will that stop the amount of whining come October 17th? Nope!

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.
