Not that poster but I have been selling on Amazon since January of 2000 so there are some of us still selling after 20+ years.
And yes, I think a lot is going on to impact sales right now. One of those is the public’s changing opinion of Amazon. Formerly the awesome underdog, the average shopper now sees the site as confusing (compared to others), hard to shop, and expensive. What was amazing customer service is now decent at best. Add in news stories about poor working conditions and leadership fighting union votes and well, there isn’t a lot of good news.
Jeff Bezo also went from being a sweet married man to someone who dumped his wife for his wife’s friend. He went from building the company to spending his billions on yachts and traveling with other rich people. His space company is struggling big time which is embarrassing–sort of like the shape of their rockets.
I am talking to more and more folks who are canceling Prime which says a lot right there.
Amazon needs to clean its room main site, work on PR and start focusing on customer experience again.
