Amazon sellers can get protection of up $70,000 if rival sellers start taking potshots at them, thanks to the new Monitor & Protect service
For Amazon sellers, having their account suspended has become an occupational hazard. But this doesn’t mean that it’s any less damaging when it happens. Sellers have to contend with the fact that they have little or no funds coming in, while expenses like staff costs and rent still have to be paid.
Using a suspension consultant is a great way to get reinstated quickly, but if Amazon have a backlog, your account could still be out of action for a while.
Now Thompson & Holt have an innovative new type of cover for Amazon sellers, included as part of their Monitor & Protect package. This includes account health notifications and listing hijack alerts, to help sellers avoid suspension in the first place.
But if sellers do get suspended through no fault of their own, there’s cover to fall back on of up to £50,000 (around $70,000), underwritten by Lloyd’s of London. This allows sellers to claim back lost revenues, less any savings made, while their business was unable trade.
Appeagle, one of the world’s top repricing tools, has a big vision for the future of online selling, as it rebrands to Informed.co
When a business is a leader in its category, it’s uncommon to see them expand into uncharted territory. But, that is exactly what leading repricing software, Appeagle, is about to do as they dive into the world of seller analytics.
In recent times, repricing has matured, thanks to it being simpler to automate and the technology behind it becoming more advanced. So, Appeagle wanted to see if there were any other parts of a seller’s business that they could enhance. There were. By building brand new analytics tools, they could help online sellers make better decisions.
Appeagle have marked the change of direction with a new name and a new brand. They are now Informed.co, and their ambition is big – to be seen by ecommerce businesses in the same way that website owners see Google Analytics: the go-to source of data about their business, with intelligent insights and recommendations.
From bulk editing to quickly duplicating listings, here’s how Wonder Lister makes having thousands of items on eBay a whole lot simpler.
Picture this: you’re a marketplace seller, you have thousands of different products, and all of a sudden your most popular brand changes its name, meaning you need to edit all of your listings.
If you sell on eBay, this scenario could cause you all kinds of problems. Unlike Amazon, where the catalog reigns supreme, on eBay you’re responsible for the content of all of your listings. That’s okay if you only have a few, but if you have thousands then finding the right ones and changing them accurately can be a massive undertaking… Unless, of course, you are using Wonder Lister.
Wonder Lister is an eBay selling tool with a huge number of useful features, including a very fast and flexible bulk editing system. It allows you to search all of your active eBay listings, find the ones that need changing, and edit them all at once, from a desktop app.
An eBay management tool is a must-have for large sellers. For just $5 per month, Wonder Lister allows up to 1000 active listings. At that price, it supports 2 eBay accounts and 1 eBay site, but the higher-level plans support unlimited eBay accounts and listing to all of eBay’s global marketplaces.
SellersFunding can make a preliminary loan offer, based just on your Amazon seller name. Here’s how their technology makes it possible.
If you’ve ever taken out a business loan from a bank, then you’ll know that the process is complex, and takes a long time to complete. There’s credit history checks, business plans to draw up, and even after all that effort, online sellers are often declined because the banks don’t understand their business model.
But now there is another way, thanks to the cutting-edge technology used by online lender SellersFunding. They understand online sellers, and offer features such as up to a 90-day grace period, which allows sellers to source, receive and start selling their products, before having to make repayments.
Better still, their algorithm can pre-approve your loan application in minutes, based on just your Amazon seller name. How is that possible?
From mobile devices to virtual reality, home products, fashion and luggage, you can source almost anything at Global Sources trade shows
If you are a private labeler or a seller looking to develop a brand, it’s very likely that you’ll be sourcing products from factories in Asia. So it makes a lot of sense to attend trade shows there, and meet face-to-face with potential suppliers.
Not only does this cut out lengthy email conversations, where your requirements can be easily misunderstood, it helps you get a feel for the right supplier and start building a relationship with them.
Trade shows also give sellers a chance to get hands on with potential products. In the age of the internet sellers can be all too tempted to source products without ever seeing them. At trade shows, sellers can get their hands on sample products, test them out and make a far more informed decision on which products to source.
