I have been selling for on Amazon for about 2 months now. I have been gated in toys ever since I started due to the holiday season. From what I understood Amazon only restricts sellers from November 17th - January 5th. January 5th came and went and I am still gated in toys. What am I missing?

Like to find out where to start. Intro: Andrew out of Miami, Florida where we sold fine jewelry for 36 years. Now that we are retired I want to sell off the remaining stock at a fair price based on weight and quality. The concern I have is chargebacks and returned damaged or missing parts. What's my best way to be covered? In the past, we spent a small fortune in time (video recording the product and packaging) and requiring the buyer to show ID and signature delivery with registered USPS.

I've been shopping around for a new processor for my "high-risk" business and agents from two different companies stated they wanted my username and password for my account with you and my other two "low-risk" processors, which are both active. This sounds absolutely criminal. Have you ever heard of such a thing? The excuse the last agent gave was: "Yes, usernames and passwords. Because none of them provide monthly statements, the underwriters need the logins so they can review the accoun

Hi, I can't believe how hard it is to find a 3rd party solution for this! I run a consignment apparel business only from an Ebay store (no cross channel selling). I need a simple solution that will: 1. Keep track of my consignors and their inventory I'm selling for them 2. Limit Access to my Ebay account so that my "lister" employees have only limited access to my eBay account purely for listing purposes and nothing more 3. Simple to use and nice presentation 4. Reporting capabilities

I am transitioning into using Kyozou. I have had several issues but right now I am having one with the item location ability. An item, auto part in my case, should have a unique location or shared with other items, say in a box of small items. I sell auto parts. The Kyozou solution is to use a drop down box to choose a location for each item. OK that is 3 warehouses X 50 bins X 8 shelves X 4 boxes.The math says appx. 4,800 locations that have to be created to populate this drop down box to choo

Received a letter from California out of state to register to pay taxes because our fba inventory is in their state. How do we handle this, being a small business ? We can register with California, however how do we collect prior sales taxes for last three years from Amazon customers. What is the best solution for filing sales tax for all the states? Any suggestions would be appreciated.. http://cdtfa.ca.gov/industry/wayfair.htm?CampaignID=7010b000001cS8O&lsmr=Direct%20Partner%20Referral&

What website is the least expensive costs? Typically I go to Yahoo to look new items. I tapped on the main item I saw, a toaster, and bought it from a site I hadn't known about. When the toaster came, the receipt indicated it as $15 short of what I paid. Clearly, I was disappointed. What is a good place to shop on the web?

If you think about buying from Direct liquidation .com STOP and read this FIRST as of for most of us resellers who are looking to buy liquidation deals from one of these site for a resale purpose!

Hi I'm a relatively new Amazon seller based in the UK selling into the UK and EU - most of the products i sell are imported from China either directly by myself or through a wholesaler in the UK. I've been talking to some insurance brokers about insurance packages but the stumbling block is always product liability for products from China - the brokers also do not seem to be that aware of e-retailing. Can anyone recommend an insurance company/ broker who has experience of this type of bus

I'm hoping someone here has done it and can answer my questions - 1) Is there a way to determine which warehouse/fulfillment center location your item is being shipped from (without having to start a chat and ask someone in a chat)? 2) Does anyone here know if Walmart.com will send an item as a gift (no invoice with the item), t
