Amazon Limits Use of Payment Services to Vetted Providers

Amazon launched a new program that impacts how sellers can receive proceeds from their Amazon sales. Many merchants choose to have disbursements made directly into their bank accounts – those sellers won’t be impacted by the new policy. But some merchants use a third-party service, which Amazon calls Payment Service Providers (PSP). These would be companies like Payoneer, PingPong, or WorldFirst.
  • If you do not use a PSP, but instead are using a bank account directly issued to you by a bank, no action is required.
  • Beginning on March 1, 2021, sellers adding a new bank account from a PSP must use a PSP that is participating in the Program.
  • Sellers using a PSP not enrolled in the program have until May 31, 2021, to become compliant

Inside Amazon’s Opaque Editorial Recommendations Ecosystem

I try to stay in the know with Amazon, but I am constantly surprised by new features I don't know about. A case in point is Editorial Recommendations. Why am I just now noticing them? If you go to Amazon and search for "Best Dust Mask", scroll down the third row and there is a recommendation. So the people writing them are being paid, the seller is making bank, but there is a shady side to this where others make money as well. In a world where nothing surprises us anymore, I think you will find this not too surprising, but interesting all the same.

Cross-border Fulfillment in North America

I didn't write about this when it was first announced in October, but due to its obvious benefits, I thought it worthwhile to tell you about Amazon's Remote Fulfilment with FBA program. The program enables Canadian and Mexican orders to be fulfilled from US inventory.

It works in exactly the same way as the European Fulfilment Network in that inventory is sorted in the 'home' marketplace but made accessible to customers in other countries.

Once the order is made, Amazon will move inventory across the border. FBA fees are slightly higher and delivery slower.

Below is a link to Amazon's fact page on this program

Condition Guidelines For Amazon Product Listings

Most sellers sell new, but there are those of us who sell used as well. Assigning the correct condition to each product you list on Amazon is the first step toward providing a great customer experience. It is important to make a careful assessment of your product before specifying its condition.

It never hurts to remind yourself of these things.
