Yet again Amazon pushing sellers to reduce prices effectively wiping out margin while amazon retain the full % of their referral fees and benefitting from being able to advertise cheap prices on the platform at the expense of 3rd party sellers.

Really, in the grand scheme of things what would it cost you Amazon to cut your referral fee for these special offers.

We never participate purely on principle that if we are to have a functioning business relationship we expect the other party in the relationship to reciprocate.
