amazon new product
« on: July 12, 2007, 06:20:36 PM »
So I was thinking about trying to sell a few items on Amazon.com. I'd never looked into selling there before, but I checked into it. But the main item I wanted to list isn't on Amazon yet, and it says that only Premium sellers (or whatever) can create new item listings? So if I don't want to become a premium member, I just can't list it on Amazon?

Yep.   If you have a marketplace account, you must have a promerchant account ($20 a month for the first two months, $40 a month after that) to create a product page.

But, many of the non-media categories are restricted (i.e. jewelry, clothing, beauty), which means you can't sell in them unless you have a seller central account and are approved for that category.

AND as I found out you have to GUARANTEE so many items listed within 60 days.  And if they are not listed, you get threating emails that you will not be allowed to sell there, that they will cancel your account.  Although even though they tell you that they will cancel your account on such in such a day if xxxx amount of items are not listed - they don't seem to follow through with the threat and keep charging you. Yep, I found out the hard way - thinking my account was canceled only to see it continously being charged.  BUT I got to say, after several emails they did credit me back for the charges that continued.

I couldn't list there because it took over 20 minutes to list an item.  Even attempted to use their bulk lister.

AND
if the UPC number was already used and the seller had no description except for We Ship International - you were stuck with that as a description!

AND  if they item don't have a UPC you can't list it without getting special permission - which they won't give me and told me to BUY the UPC codes myself - which unless you are a manufacturer or disturbutor you can not buy them! Not to mention, they are not cheap!

YEP and you would be surprised how many clothing items don't have UPC's!


Look at this Amazon sellers items

OH, I'm sorry it's not the product descriptions --- it;'s the product features -- they must have corrected it since I was attempting to list there.
Product features on every item = Ship international.

Now, being I have the same Big & Tall guys items that wopuld appear in all my listings as well. 
Sorry but Ship International is NOT a feature of the product!
