I received an email a couple of weeks ago from Amazon Handmade, suggesting ways to get ready for the holiday season. One of the tools it suggested was to run Deals, so I clicked on the link to the Deals page, only to find that none of my products were available on that page. Nothing even came up when I searched for them via the ASIN.
Feeling curious (and optimistic) I asked the Amazon help people why none of my products were showing on the Deals page. I told them I’d checked the eligibility criteria on this page: https://sellercentral-europe.amazon.com/help/hub/reference/G202111490 and that my shop and products seem to fit the requirements.
They responded the same day with - you’ll never believe this - a response that was basically copied and pasted from the eligibility-criteria page that I’d specifically told them I’d read.
So I’ve come to the experts to ask my question instead!
So I was wondering if:
- I’ve misunderstood something? or
- Deals don’t apply to Handmade items? or
- if it’s just (sigh) “one of those Amazon things”?
