I saw that story. So sad for the families of the victims. My thoughts and prayers are with them.
* Amazon Central / Amazon Prime Cargo Plane Crashes Dueing Approach to Houston
« Last post by WayOutWest on February 23, 2019, 05:35:52 PM »
Am Amazon Prime cargo plane just crashed while approaching its destination of Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston, killing all 3 crew members aboard.

At the time of the crash, visibility was over 10 miles; high winds from the edge of a storm front are believed to have caused the crash.
This is a developing story. 
I did not receive this letter in my email so I am assuming my products are good?

Yes, I know what the saying is about making assumptions. I guess I'll wait and see if I get one of these messages. Another pain in the butt. I know a lot of people R/A so I wonder if I will see less competition this year.
Heads Up!

Sorry for the late response. Our tax office has been crazy with tons of people the past few weeks. For the two-week period ending last Friday, I've put in around 140 hours between doing taxes, teaching and e-commerce. I've been sleep deprived since this is my busy time of year with everything going on. Finally got a day off from everything last Friday. And I still did not get much sleep. Is April 16th here yet?  :laugh

I use for all of my shipping needs. With my new thermal printer, I am just cranking out the shipping labels like lightning. Too bad sales have slowed to a crawl.

I am in complete agreement with you on the tracking subject. I want to know where my stuff is and when it will be/is delivered. Nothing drives me crazy like someone shipping something to me with no tracking. Just imagine how much free stuff we could get if we didn't have scruples and claimed we never received it.

Thanks for the link to the PayPal shipping for items not on Amazon/eBay. It might come in handy some day.

This forum goes away on March 4th, 2019
Forum is up for grabs only to someone I trust.

Retirement from eCommerce is coming and with it goes this forum.
Hope to be only doing a holiday season after this year.
Just cause, I can't give it up. <smile>
And the tax write-offs.

I'm going to turn off the lights and close the door on my way out.

You were using the partner'd shipping with eBay, correct?
They have a partnership with USPS as Amazon does.
Not sure if you've seen this posting on the forum but there's a to Link to Print Labels using Paypal (where you still receive a business rate discount for buying USPS postage).
I use this all the time when I've sold an item not from Amazon or eBay.
Works well.
Or you could use the sign in for USPS business account to buy postage BUT the site doesn't offer first class only priority. <-----hardly ever use

I had 2 orders from an eBay seller this past December.
Seller placed stamps on the envelopes to ship.
I don't know if the recipients received their item or not.
I'm not forgiving about that, I want my delivery confirmation/tracking.
Tried to explain to the buyer that it is a protection for them more so than the buyer.
If I wanted to (and I'm not. I believe in Karma) I could file against seller and would win because they do not have a delivery confirmation for the shipping of their product.

So I had an order on the bay that I had to ship from here (Ohio) to California. Holy crap, Batman! Had to pay an extra 58 cents to ship the cheap package. What used to cost $3.05 is now costing $3.63.

I am taking bets on how many sellers will just ship everything media mail and take their chances. Especially when a seller can purchase shipping through Amazon and eBay.

Lovin' eBay all over again.
Made $$$ during the Christmas season, Alot more than expected.
And considering opening a store on eBay instead of selling each individual item for a fee. (which is still lower than Amazon)
I love the vacation mode of an eBay store.
eBay vacation help

I do love the vacation mode of Amazon, too.
I continue to make money on Amazon on vacation if my items are in FBA.

I have continued to research this subject and coming up with alot of info that I just don't understand.

Yep, LTSF was a <perk> moment for me.
And the new sellers?
Killin' me. Just killin me on Amazon.

You're smart.
Don't keep all your eggs in one basket.
Always consider more than one venue and if leaner works and you're still making money.... then better in losing out by having bigger expectations.
12 years ago, you wouldn't have heard a peep from me about not having higher expectations, I was 100% positive in my future with Amazon sales...
Not so much anymore.
I've never seen changes coming about as quickly as they do with Amazon now.
Rollin' em out faster and faster.

Me = Old Dawg
I don't do well with fast changes.
