If they want to contact me via an order that FBA fulfills... that is what the buyer seller messaging is for.
If I self-fulfill an order my business card is enclosed with my business number.

From what I've ascertained, this last year plus worth of sellers were harassing buyers by phone for feedback and more.

I've been doing the same thing.
I paid for some to be returned to me.
I paid to have Amazon dispose of them for me.

Amazon reveals how third-party sellers are kicking its butt on sales

In a new report, published on Tuesday, Amazon said its sellers in the US earned as much $90,000 a year from selling on its stores.
And on average, these sellers in the US, are earning as much as $90,000 a year from selling on its stores, creating 1.6 million jobs around the world, Amazon said.

Ummm, yuh.
We (the third party sellers) have been doing this for some time.
Amazon's big $$$ is via cloud services.

I've been experiencing just the opposite. Everything has been 2 day and many not having 1 day upgrade as an option :( Hopefully this is merely a temporary side effect of the upcoming changes.

Amazon can already ship to 72% of US population within a day

The map on the page and I also posted it says so much about the density of population in the areas that Amazon does one day shipping. (image credit on image)
Man, just look at the difference between 2014 and 2019.
WOW!

It's a really good article.

I don't have a Facebook account.
However, wasn't there an update of some sort to Paypal and embedding the Paypal code that was announced a few months ago?
I'll see what I can find.
I haven't worked with HTML in so long.
I wonder if I could still code it in correctly.
<smile>

There's a donate Paypal button on this site.
Perhaps I'll test it out tomorrow and see if there are any errors.

Customer phone number anonymization

May 2, 2019
You or your delivery carrier may only contact the customer via phone for delivery issues through our phone number anonymization system.

When calling a customer, use the temporary phone number, including the extension if provided, and follow the prompts. The phone number will expire once the package is delivered. This system is scheduled to be rolled out over the next few weeks.

As a reminder, in accordance with our Communication guidelines, you should only contact customers to fulfill an order. If you need to contact a customer for any reason other than package delivery, please use the Buyer-Seller Messaging Service.

Refer to the Prohibited seller activities and actions policy for information about appropriate use of customer phone numbers.

I remember (and I'm still experiencing) alot of warehouse transfers of my inventory.
REALLY spread out to many warehouses.
Granted, I don't have that much in the warehouse(s).... but... hear me out, Perhaps that is why only certain warehouses are offering one day as it is in their nearby warehouse.

Hope it gets better for you.

Still one day arrivals of packages this week.
It is spurring me on to buying more on Amazon.

Amazon Confirms It Will Close Four Fulfillment Centers For Retrofitting

According to the news report, the facilities to be closed are called "Amazon Robotics Quick Deploy," which handle small items and use Kiva orange robots that move shelves of goods to human pickers. The centers, located in California, Illinois, New Jersey and Texas, will be re-designed for use as sorting centers, Amazon Fresh delivery hubs and print-on-demand book sites, according to the report. An Amazon spokesperson told Yahoo that it has determined that various facilities are now better suited to handle different types of inventory than they have in the past.

To borrow another persons comment:

That's pretty kohl.

Amazon plans to make Prime shipping one-day by default

I'd been wondering why the past 2 months most of my Prime purchases have given me the option of Free One Day Shipping.
AND even more important, ALL of them arrived in one day.
This incentive has moved me to purchase MORE on Amazon as versus getting in car, driving to store, fighting the crowd, purchase item and take it home. ( I was going to start it off with get dressed but...I am essentially dressed, just happens to be my comfy home clothes. ha)

Woop Woop!
Wondering if other retailers will step up and match.
Hmmmmmm.
