Hi Steinar,

I've been using Amazon for a long time and they never asked me regarding my shopping habits, unless of course I initiated a report about an order or a seller. Just want to give you an advice not to give too much information nor trust easily any email claiming to be from Amazon, eBay etc. :)

Cheers! :)

Hi Steinar,

Looks like you are really exploring many online selling sites and that's great!

I found this interesting article which you may find helpful. If I'm not wrong you are also selling at eBay, right? What better way to know how expensive or how much better Amazon is than to have it compared to eBay :) Here's a 12 point comparison of both sites - Link hidden: Login to view

Hope this helps, cheers!

We were contact by
Amazon stating they belived we were selling fradualent merchandise and closed our account permanently. I am a new seller to Amazon and tried to appeal their decision and it was still rejected. If you go to the contact us they will call you back and you can verify the email you received. I really wish we can get back on, but if not.....life will continue.

Good luck and happy selling.
Tracy

Hi Tracy,

So unfortunate, sorry to hear about your Amazon experience. They are pretty strict though, and once your kicked off there is now way of getting back in. One of our members also shared with us that although it was his wife who got kicked off Amazon, even he can't or is not allowed to sell in there :(

Tough but you're right life will continue and there are still many other viable auction sites for you to sell at!

The best of luck :)

like anything else it has both it's pros and cons...

pros:

1. amazon's network. your product will be well represented all over the Internet because of the very far reaching network...great stuff for the seller.

2. this is a two edge sword here...their customer service...the good thing is that they'll call you uP right now if you want them to...the bad...not all of the reps know what they're talking about.

3. the listing options/descriptions for your products are pretty extensive...which allows you to be able to out rank your competition on the search engines.

4. a wide range of service & support info...if you can either find it...or dig it outta one of their knucklehead customer service reps...although beware of charges...they try their best to keep their hand in your wallet...

cons:

1. they're expensive! they want a monthly byte as well as a byte(%) outta each sale you make on their site.

2. they only pay every 14 daze...and if your forget to download your monthly statement...come tax time...you've got additional issues to get your sales/income/expenses from them later.

3. you must confirm every sale via their user interface or you don't get paid for that sale.

4. you have no meaningful recourse to any dispute that may come uP as amazon is law...end of story.

5. you don't own your customers...to a point...you have to be a little slick to get your customers email or phone number...

good luck with your amazon business...
