2018 Holiday Selling in Toys & Games on Amazon.com

Wow! Seems like the notifications keep getting earlier and earlier.

Dear Seller,

As a reminder, in order to maintain a great customer experience this holiday season, we have established holiday selling guidelines for the Toys & Games store.

Only the sellers who meet the criteria listed below will be eligible to sell in the Toys & Games category from October 17, 2018 through January 05, 2019.

•       Your first sale on Amazon.com has to occur prior to August 18, 2018. The sale does not need to be specific to the Toys & Games store.
•       You have to process and ship at least 25 orders from August 01, 2018 through October 01, 2018. The orders do not need to be specific to the Toys & Games store.
•       Your pre-fulfillment cancel rate for the period from September 01 through September 30, 2018 has to be lesser than 1.75%.
•       Your late shipment rate for the period from September 01 through September 30, 2018 has to be lesser than 4%.
•       Your order defect rate has to be lesser than 1% short term as of October 01, 2018.

Orders that use Fulfillment by Amazon will not be subjected to the above criteria provided your account is in good standing.

You can find your cancel rate, late shipment rate, and order defect rate in the Performance section of your seller account. If your account does not meet the above criteria, we encourage you to take corrective action to ensure your eligibility to sell in the Toys & Games category this holiday season.

Eligibility for selling in the Toys & Games store is determined separately for each country. If you sell in multiple marketplaces, your account will be evaluated for each country.

We will provide a final notification about your eligibility to sell in the Toys & Games store by October 11, 2018. Beginning October 17, 2018, we will monitor the performance and listings of the sellers who are approved to sell in Toys & Games store during the holiday season.

Amazon Services reserves the right to cancel listings, remove selling privileges, and prohibit the sale of specific products to maintain a great customer shopping experience.

Here are some steps you can take to remain eligible to sell in Toys & Games store throughout the holiday season:

•       Monitor your performance metrics and take corrective action when necessary.
•       Use Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) to ship products to customers.
•       Check your orders frequently in the Manage Orders section of your account.
•       Minimize order cancellations and display the inventory for sale that is available to ship.
•       Ship orders and confirm the shipments in a timely manner.
•       Ensure your seller policies are up to date.
•       If you work with outside drop-shippers, solidify their SLA commitments for providing prompt shipping confirmation.

Thank you for selling on Amazon.

Regards,
Amazon Services

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

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

In the past did we receive monthly updates to Holidays Toys and Games?
Searched via my notifications from Amazon and don't see monthly notifications.
Received another today that I qualify.
Just seems early to receive this many notifications.

Yes, we did receive early notifications in previous years, albeit not as many and not as early as this year.
