So many factors make Amazon and/or ebay great or not so great. Mostly the seller themselves and then the items being sold dictate how wonderful or horrible a platform is.

Yeah it really depends on what you're trying to sell and how. I made the mistake of putting a large chunk of my eBay inventory post-suspension onto Amazon. It hasn't gone too well. Amazon has much more strict rules on what you can sell and how. Their performance metric system is very strict. I have dealt with far more returns there then on eBay. I am certain I have run into at least a few scammers in a very short period of time there.

It seems to me it's more for folks who are authorized resellers from retailers, overseas wholesale, or penny book sellers.

@ beaches it's probably a new account and they have to take precaution to cover A-Z guarantee claims or chargebacks. Once the account gets established they will probably offer the option of a manual disbursement. If you need your funds that quickly sign up for a pro account you can request withdrawals within 24 hours and the first 3 months are free!

Stick with it Amazon is great. Think of the benefits no PayPal to deal with is a major plus and if your selling popular items trust me the traffic volume is huge.

Beaches, from what I remember you sell DVD's that are... well... you know. Right?

Amazon has a ZERO TOLERANCE policy for counterfeits. That has not changed. In fact, I didn't think you could even sell DVD's on Amazon anymore without pre-approval.

But whatever the deal is, the fact remains that if you are going to try to sell this stuff on Amazon, then Amazon is going to give you a bad time about it.

If I have you confused with another forum member, I apologize.

Amz can be amazing.

It all depends on what you sell and your customer service skills.

Fraudulent buyers do show their ugly faces from time to time, but "paying off" these scum will keep you in business rather than fighting with them and letting them take a hit at your metrics.

Also, Amz have never stolen any funds permanently from me since I have used them and that is 6 figures+

There is huge money to be made with Amazon and they are 10x better than eBay has ever been.

I second that sentiment.

Amazon is amazing and if done properly can make you an absolute fortune. FBA is the jewel in the crown. I can travel the world with a laptop, buy stocks send to FBA for amazon to sell. I have never touched an item I sell for over 3 years.

Look, all we're trying to say is that Amazon can be an amazing selling platform when used properly. Yes, they have VERY high standards, but for most people, they have higher profits than on eBay.

But if you hate Amazon, then stop selling there. No one is forcing you to.
