I believe there will always be a niche for the hard to find and discontinued items that used to be so easy for me to find.
The problem then will be being approved for those categories where you have found a hard to find or discontinued item.
Predictions anyone?
My money is on 5 years.

* Amazon Central / July 2018 Amazon Storage Monitor
« on: July 02, 2018, 07:28:26 PM »
I found today when working up a shipment to the warehouse...
I have a storage monitor.
It's helpful.
Does it take up the bottom of the page?
Yes.
Do I think Amazon is testing?
Yes.
Do I think Amazon will update it's location and info?
Yes.
Not too worried about the storage monitor, it does make me aware of how much cubic feet I have at the warehouse and how many oversize items I have.
This will be worked out.

Take control of your Inventory Performance Index

Jun 29, 2018
Use the Seller Central Inventory Performance Dashboard to improve the key factors influencing your FBA Inventory Performance Index (IPI). The dashboard shows you how these factors – excess inventory, stranded inventory, sell-through rate, and in-stock rate – influence your score, and suggests actions you can take to improve your IPI.

I have never seen a more ignorant buncha new sellers posting questions to the Amazon Seller Forums in my entire time with Amazon.
Some of the questions make me wonder if they have their full faculties or not.
Geesh!

* Amazon Central / New FBA Amazon Fulfilled Inventory Message
« on: June 14, 2018, 10:58:04 AM »
If you're not already using the new FBA Amazon Fulfilled Inventory Page....
You will be soon.
Important: This page will soon be replaced with the new Manage FBA Inventory page.

Me = Old Dawg and hates new tricks

Better get on this before I wake up one day to find only the new interface.
No date, but if Amazon has the pop-up window to alert us, then it's time.

* Amazon Central / Feedback May 2018
« on: May 16, 2018, 08:45:46 AM »
Received a negative.
Negative was for condition of item when received.
Normally this is a strike through but with feedback still remaining to be seen.

Notified Amazon.
Removed.

This time is different.
No strike through on the number feedback nor was the typical message from Amazon placed on the feedback.. ---->Message from Amazon: "This item was fulfilled by Amazon, and we take responsibility for this fulfillment experience."

New?
I believe so.

The percentage of the feedback isn't worth a flip.

* Amazon Central / Amazon Seller Central down April 23 2018
« on: April 24, 2018, 09:35:00 AM »
Seller Central down for anyone else? Or just me?

Noted this last night when I signed in before hitting the hay.
I have no idea how long it lasted, but my head hit the pillow hoping Seller Central would be up and running this AM.
Looks like Inventory was able to be accessed 5 hours ago.

Wondering what changes are coming?


Edited to add: Some sellers aren't able to sign into their Seller Central yet.
Some sellers are able to sign in (myself being one) and are seeing some changes as I predicted.
I haven't looked to see if there are any major changes...but will report back.

Hello from Fulfillment by Amazon,

On March 1, 2018, we announced changes to our monthly and long-term storage fees. This included a new storage limit policy, which states starting July 1, 2018, sellers with an Inventory Performance Index (IPI) below 350 may be subject to quarterly storage limits. Removing excess and aged inventory may help you reduce storage costs and improve your IPI.

Therefore, starting today, April 18, 2018, for a limited time, FBA will waive your removal fees for any removal order that you submit for inventory that you have in our US fulfillment centers.
 
To take action, in Seller Central, go to Manage Excess Inventory (Pro sellers) or FBA Inventory Age (Individual sellers). Then choose Create removal order from the menu next to any FBA item in your inventory.
 
If you remove inventory during this promotion, you will not be able to send us more units of the ASINs you remove until either:

    August 1, 2018, when these restrictions will be lifted


OR

    When your inventory level for the removed ASINs falls below our projection of your sales for the next eight weeks based on your average sales rate for the removed ASINs during the preceding 90 days

Note that removals during peak and promotional periods can take longer to process than the standard 10 to 14 days. Learn more about free removals.

If you have inventory for an ASIN that is slow-moving or has not been selling, take advantage of this opportunity to remove it for free and avoid paying additional storage fees for it. This promotion will run for a limited time, and after it ends, standard removal-order fees will apply.

Learn more at Remove inventory from fulfillment centers.

Thank you for selling on Amazon.

Sincerely,

The Fulfillment by Amazon team

Amazon Toy Category Now Restricted?

I didn't receive the original email stating my account was restricted.
AND supposedly it was Amazon Services Europe.
Who knows....seriously.

I did receive not one, not two, but three emails stating:

We recently sent you an email with the subject line “Important information about your listings on Amazon,” regarding listings in the Toys category.

This message was sent in error, so please disregard it. There are no new requirements associated with your Toys listings at this time. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Thank you for selling on Amazon,
