It would feel like a fairer relationship between Amazon and sellers if Amazon would make some concessions towards the fees with respect to this.

I really don’t like the idea of Amazon encouraging us to lower our prices to the point where the margin is potentially zero while Amazon still take 15% referral fee from the sale.

I’ve said it many times before but the resentment you are creating between Amazon and sellers during the “good times” for Amazon will be difficult to repair should Amazon find itself in a position where it is needing to persuade sellers to remain engaged in the platform.

I don’t have any major issues with the platform, but the way you treat sellers and your wider corporate antics are less than exemplary.

Hello Amazon team,

I don’t see the Early Weeks right now. Is it possible that I will see the option to make a deal during Early BF Weeks later on?

Could you share the details of the criteria of our products be elligible for BF/CM and Early Weeks deals?
Some of our best selling products aren’t currently elligible for Black Friday which doesn’t make sense at all.

Thank you in advance.
Best regards,
Marija
