How to Deal With Amazon’s New Long-Term Storage Fees

2018-08-13T12:15:38+00:00

We’ve got a bit of good news/bad news for you. The bad news is Amazon’s implementing new long-term storage fees, but the good news is FeedbackExpress has you covered so you can go into it informed and keep rocking your all-star seller status.   Why is Amazon Changing Their Long-Term Storage Fees? The biggest reason Amazon is making a change to their long-term storage fees is to deal with all the excess products in their warehouses. Too much of it gets left sitting around for months and months — not only are sellers not making money on that stuff, but Amazon isn’t either. So, the change in fees is a gentle nudge for sellers to start moving on getting their stock into buyers’ hands. Amazon’s business model is efficiency and you see it in all aspects, from two-day (or faster) shipping, having multiple streaming services available, and delivery to more and more locations. Changing the fees is simply another extension of that, so if you approach it with an efficiency mindset too, you’ll be able to take this new change in stride.   What Can

5 Things to Look For in Amazon Feedback Software

2018-08-07T14:05:43+00:00

When selling online, you’re only as good as your reviews. Reputation is everything, considering shoppers don’t have a chance to see you and your products in person. When it comes to finding the perfect Amazon feedback software, FeedbackExpress has you covered.   1. Check Out the Support System One of the biggest reasons Amazon does as well as it does is because its customer support is amazing. Buyers feel very comfortable using the site because they know their needs will be taken care of to a great degree. You should look for the same with feedback software. You’re a customer using a service, and one of your top priorities should be that if you need help with anything, it’ll be there. And like any customer, you want to be treated like a person and know there’s a live human on the other end helping you out instead of a generic FAQ section.   2.

A Guide to VAT for Amazon US Sellers

2018-08-07T11:36:35+00:00

Do you sell primarily in the United States market but are thinking of expanding? If the United Kingdom or European markets are on your list, you’ll need to familiarise yourself with Value Added Tax (VAT). Luckily, FeedbackExpress will break it down for you in an easy-to-understand, not-dry way.   Understanding What VAT Is VAT can be compared to a sales tax in many states in the US, the kind where you have to collect it from buyers if you sell in that location. Depending on where you sell in, you might have to collect it from buyers and then remit the returns to specific countries. And just as how sales taxes vary from state-to-state, the rules and rates for VAT differ based on which country you’re selling in, too. However, it’s important to note one key difference between VAT and company taxes. With company taxes, you only need to pay those if your business is locally registered in a certain country, but with VAT, you have to collect and remit it based on where you locally sell. And just like company taxes, VAT is something

7 Habits of Highly Effective Amazon Sellers

2018-08-03T14:13:21+00:00

A lot of being a top seller comes from preparation and attitude. Top sellers learn best practices and cement them into habits until it’s all second nature. If you want to play with the big boys, then FeedbackExpress has seven tips and tricks you can employ to become highly effective at the game.   Habit 1: Write the Route YOU Need to Take to Success Think back to the last time you gave someone directions. Did you tell them the fastest route? Or the easiest one? Wherever you’re going, there’s usually more than one way of getting there. Compound that by the fact that each person needs different things to arrive at their destination, and there are plenty of routes to success. What yours will look like depends on your personality, work style, ambition, skills, limitations, resources and more. And when you’re writing your route to success, remember to factor in detours so you don’t get discouraged when your path doesn’t travel in a straight line.   Habit 2: Learn How to Delegate Tasks to the Right People Being at the head of things, you

8 Tips for Winning the Amazon Buy Box and More Sales

2018-08-21T14:43:48+00:00

Interested in more sales? Winning the Buy Box? Just doing better in general on Amazon? If you’re nodding your head, then this FeedbackExpress post is for you. We’ve got 8 tips you can use to work toward getting more sales and trying to win the Buy Box.   1. Use FBA If I’m shopping for something on Amazon and I come down to two items, one with free two-day shipping and one with paid 20-day shipping, there’s no question in my mind which one I’m choosing. And with more and more buyers opting for the benefits of Prime, having your products be Prime-eligible means you open yourself up to a bigger pool of potential sales. Plus, if you’re trying to win the Buy Box, you’ll have a huge leap ahead if you use FBA.   2. Be a Professional Seller You won’t be able to compete for a Buy Box without being a Professional Seller. But even if that’s still too lofty a goal for you, switching to a professional account has other sales benefits, like: A flat monthly fee ($39.99) instead of a fee
