hello everyone and welcome to the EZ
promotions youtube channel my name is Paul and this is the Amazon seller
related news for October 2019 if you enjoy this video or want to learn more
about us selling on Amazon and all things e-commerce then subscribe to our
channel and be sure to like this video number one introducing SBA sold by
Amazon sold by Amazon was in an invite-only testing phase earlier this
year and has become live for USA sellers and no doubt the rest of the
Amazon network very very soon though what is SBA? SBA allows third-party
sellers who sell their products for FBA and are brand registered to allow Amazon
complete control of their pricing of their products
Amazon agrees a bottom-line profit margin with the seller and then takes
control over your pricing ensuring you are always winning the buy box according
to the Amazon brand health index price competitive is Amazon’s number one
standard that Amazon uses for performance of brands SBA service is
aimed at allowing Amazon to always have the cheapest price on your product over
companies such as Walmart or your own e-commerce website, the concern for many
is that this is yet another way to get sellers hooked on the Amazon platform
and as we’ve seen so many times before the bigger you get on Amazon the more
dependent you become on them then you get hit with the bigger charges and by
then it’s too late pull your brand out of the platform without taking a massive
hit on sales number two Amazon sets its lawyers on the gurus we’ve all seen
their ads on YouTube and Facebook and many sellers would have been drawn into
becoming an Amazon seller by the promise of get-rich-quick with Amazon and in my
course I reveal the top secret way to win on Amazon unfortunately like any
business selling on Amazon isn’t a get-rich-quick scheme and these gurus
promise a lot charge a lot for their courses and there are countless people
who have been left with a big hole in their finance
little show, well it seems Amazon has had enough or at least enough of the gurus
taking their name and abusing Amazon platform two California men have been
taken to court for their scheme of fake reviews dishonest marketing and infringing
on the Amazon trademark and logos in the court papers served to the to gurus
Amazon said the following defendants improperly exploits Amazon’s name
intellectual property and reputation so they get rich quick scheme to unwitting
entrepreneurs around the country these victims pay up to tens of thousands of
dollars to defendants based on defendants false portrayal of an
affiliation with Amazon relying on these misrepresentations start business
selling on Amazon the two men are accused of charging up to ten thousand
dollars for courses on how to gain the system when selling on Amazon the two
men run a review exchange system with their students which is something Amazon
has real problem with as of late as fake reviews undermining the Amazon platform
which funnily enough leads us on to our next story number three
Amazon reportedly failing to crack down on fake reviews which a consumer Action
Group has spoken out against Amazon’s lack of action on fake reviews this
month their investigation showed a number of products from unknown Chinese
brands an exceptionally high score for their products on Amazon a lot of these
products had suspiciously repetitive phrases in their reviews and had higher
ratings and some of those products and highly familiar brands when which tested
eight of these products from the electrical category
they failed to meet even the basic performance tests which has not only
targeted Amazon according to them the whole e-commerce industry have a severe issue
with fraudulent reviews that’s only getting worse Amazon this year started
targeting review groups along with banning sellers and removing suspicious
reviews review groups used to be a way to get good reviews quick when launching
products but have always been against Amazon’s Terms of Service number four
making a profit from self-published blank books on Amazon Kindle in a great
article on money.com, link in the description along with sources for all
of today’s news it’s revealed how people are selling blank page books such as
notebooks and journals and Amazon’s Kindle direct publishing platform now
some of these are print on demand books such as mazes or puzzle books and some
of these are just downloadable where they just seem to be money to made and
it is a very novel idea this is a great low cost and low input way to make some
cash on Amazon but be warned you will still have to put the effort for
research and creating a good product if your customers even if it is blank pages
