Important notification regarding impacts of the Novel Coronavirus


#100

I only sell a few books FBM, I have thought about just using vacation mode in case I am ordered to shelter in place until shelter in place is removed. If my account is on extended, like 3-5 months of vacation mode will I lose my account?


#101

Unless access to the books is a problem, then you should have no difficulty shipping under shelter-in-place conditions.

I am in California. I go to the Post Office with my packages.

Ok thank you, I appreciate that.

HOW ABOUT HELPING OUT THE SMALL BUSINESS PEOPLE WITH LOWERING THE AMAZON FEE’S?
The impact of the virus is obviously going to hurt consumer spending for many products can we get a break on the fee’s to stay alive?


#104

And the IPI! That’s worse than fees.


#105

No the IPI only affects FBA Sellers while fees are the bane of all sellers. The Pro Fee, the fulfillment fee, the $1.80 per media item fee, the fee the fee.
If the Pro fee was reduced or eliminated for three months that would be a small savings; if the fulfillment percentage fee was halved/eliminated that could be no savings if no sales.
But this thread is about what to do from the virus. The choices are stay active and hope for sales or go on vacation.
Both are not great choices under the present circumstances.
