PODCAST SHOW NOTES
Amazon Seller News Headlines
News is happening every single day that impacts Amazon Sellers and eCommerce companies in general and here are a few that caught Steve's eye this week:
1) Amazon admits it uses marketplace Seller data to come up with products.
2) Amazon responds to some Seller concerns but ignores others.
3) Amazon's written response to FTC Anti-Trust Inquiry.
Top Take Aways:
Forcing Brands to match prices of "competitors"Buy Box factors remain elusive.
Amazon Seller count lower than press estimates.
Amazon eludes details about their own brand placement.
MSRP pricing vs. Sale pricing is weird.
Amazon's unfair use of data, placement, and external competitors is damaging US businesses.
Don't forget that we must remain calm and carry on a dialogue to get change to happen.
Losing our minds and yelling will not solve this situation and I believe there are ways to make improvements without the government getting too involved and without Amazon unfairly using its power.
