Amazon Marketplace hints tips and more

Excellent post on the Amazon Boards by member marilynsattic.

Amazon Marketplace Rules EVERY New Marketplace Seller Must Know (aka This Ain't Ebay)

Welcome to the River. Amazon is not eBay. Learn the differences or your stay here will be VERY short—Amazon has little to no tolerance for errors made from ignorance of the rules and they don't believe in second chances. The minute you list an item for sale on any venue, you have agreed to the venues rules and are in business--be it big or small, it’s still business. From the college student selling off their textbooks to the megasellers selling multiple types of goods, it’s all business.

The selling model of Amazon is completely different from eBay. 

On eBay there are 50 million different businesses, all of whom can set their own terms and policies as long as they don’t violate eBay’s overall rules.  If a seller screws up on ebay, ebay is not on the hook to the buyer.

On Amazon, there is ONE business—Amazon’s.
