Hands down, Amazon Prime Day is the best day of the year for both customers and Amazon Sellers.
Why? Because Amazon Prime Day is Amazon’s biggest annual sales event where they offer better-than-Black-Friday deals! This has been the best event for Amazon since its first-ever Prime Day took place last July 15, 2015, to commemorate 20 years since Amazon.com went live and 10 years of Prime.
For those who are unfamiliar with Amazon Prime Day, it is an exclusive event for Amazon’s more than 150 million Prime subscribers. It’s a day when Amazon offers some of the lowest prices of the year on Amazon devices and leading brands.
Prime membership for customers costs $12.99 a month ($119 a year) but it provides many benefits, like free two-day shipping, rewards at Amazon stores like Whole Foods, and hundreds of streaming movies and TV shows from Prime Video. New subscribers can try Prime with a free 30-day trial.

If you are launching a product as an Amazon Seller, product labeling might be last on your long list of priorities. If this is the case, you might want to revisit that priority list. Product labeling might not sound important, but trust me when I say it is something you should take seriously, especially with Amazon, where more than 4,000 products are being sold every minute.

You have heard about product bundles since you were young. Bundles have been a popular sales strategy in brick-and-mortar stores, like department stores and supermarkets for many years. The concept is simple: group different or related products together into a single unit at a discounted price. The idea is to price the bundle at a lower price than the sum of each product when added together. It makes sense, right?
The actual challenge is how to translate this terrific sales concept to eCommerce. In the digitized online sales world, one can’t simply make and add a new product code for a bundle and sell them alongside the individual products that are part of the bundle. The problem is, this can mess up stock levels or get your inventory all mixed up. It gets more complicated and utterly confusing if each bundled product is located in a different warehouse.
This dilemma gave birth to Amazon’s Virtual Product Bundle program. The program was rolled out during the...
Still trying to figure out what the Amazon Account Health page is all about?
In some measure, Amazon’s business model centers on the execution of its third-party sellers, referring to you.

These tools are accessible in Seller Central through the Performance Menu.

Amazon has allocated a page in your Seller Central account called...
As an Amazon Seller, you might have realized by now that one of the most critical aspects of managing a successful Amazon operation is understanding how to handle returns to avoid account or listing suspensions.
For the past several years, return delivery costs have reached 75% or a whopping $550 billion in 2020. That figure only accounts for the return shipping fees. As an Amazon Seller, you may be paying more than that. When you factor in the processing fees, restocking, and reselling items after their return Being an FBA seller, you may also be charged inventory removal and disposal fees if Amazon deems your product is no longer sellable.
Successfully managing these returns is mandatory to minimize their cost and maximize your profits.
At first glance, the Amazon Seller return policy may seem complicated. They have a policy for nearly every category, and simplifying things seems inconceivable. Nevertheless, there are three reasons why a...
Last September 2020, Amazon introduced Amazon One. New biometric technology allows shoppers at Amazon Go stores to pay for their purchases by scanning the palm of their hands. It was a breakthrough that everyone is practically giving a hand to experience.
Amazon maintains its position as the No. 1 online retailer in North America, with its online sales representing nearly 31.4% of the United States e-commerce sales growth in 2020. Amazon also takes a massive cut by selling payments services and other technologies to external shopping sites. That is a large piece of the online sales growth, something we are all too familiar with when it comes to Amazon.
This is why it is no longer surprising to see the e-commerce giant grab a piece of the brick-and-mortar shopping market, and Amazon wants all its customers to lend a hand practically.
