Hello Amazon Seller,

First off, thank you for being a subscriber, and thank you for opening this email.

Let's start with some good news for all sellers. Amazon has decided to postpone a planned increase in its fees. The news was announced over the holiday period.

Being an Amazon Seller in 2020; Year in Review

Molson Hart is the founder of an educational toy company called Viahart. In this post, he details his experience of selling on Amazon in 2020. He shares a breakdown of his operating and marketing costs.

I love the transparency, honesty, and humor of his writing. It is one of the best articles of this type I have read in a long time.

How Amazon Payouts and Unavailable Balances Actually Work

As an Amazon seller, getting access to your money can be a frustrating experience. It’s normal for sellers to wait at least 14 days to get paid. If Amazon decides to hold back your money for even longer, it puts you in a tight spot with cash flow. It’s frustrating not knowing when your hard-earned payouts are going to hit your bank account.

Have you ever wondered why there’s a 14-day delay in the first place? Why do you sometimes have to wait even longer than two weeks for payment?

To help you answer these questions (and more), Payability has put together the definitive guide on understanding how Amazon pays its sellers. They cover Amazon’s payment terms, when and how you’ll actually get paid, how you can initiate early payments, what your cash flow options are, and more.

It was an eye-opener for us.
