Selling Nintendo Products


#286

Go to the Inactive inventory (New) page that shows the reason for inactivity of each listing.

First click on Inventory. When you get to the Inventory page, you’ll see a link to Inactive Inventory at the upper right of the page. Says “new” in red next to it.

Hello Sellers,

Yesterday’s email was sent in error and all impacted listings were reinstated within hours. We apologize for the confusion.

Hey if this was an error why are all my Nintendo FBA items now stranded and when I go in to fix the stranded inventory it won’t allow me to do anything. Very annoying I have FBA shipments I’m working on that have Nintendo products in them and it will not let me ship out due to stranded inventory


#289

Not buying that for one second. It was more than just an email. All permissions were reset and even ungated sellers were required to resubmit applications for approval. It wasn’t a mistake. A decision was made, and then reversed for some reason. I’d love to be a fly on the wall and hear what really went down.


#290

This is a complete joke. They’re literally screwed over hundreds of legitimate sellers. Unreal.


#291

I’m wondering if they were trying to gate Nintendo Switch products. Just a hunch.

Or there were so many angry sellers contacting Amazon they reversed course.

Whatever the reason they’ve spooked a lot of people.

Hi Susan, I started this thread and also emailed Jeff & his team about this. I am so glad you all heard the sellers’ concerns and took action. Any idea what caused this error?


#294

Hi Pantingfish08 – have you tried re-listing your offers?


Important information about your listings on Amazon.com

Thanks for the reply, this afternoon relisting stranded inventory wasn’t working, but now it seems that it is available in my inventory. Thanks. On another note, I assume this is a warning for the future for us who sell Nintendo products. How does an email like that get sent as a mistake, how is an email like that already typed up and ready to go?


#296

Actually take that back, it says in one place that they are available, but when I go to my FBA inventory they do now show up


#297

Apparently Amazon states they make a mistake on the Nintendo listings

Amazon blames error for blocking Nintendo reseller from listing products

Best if everyone read this article, there is more to come with the Feds vs Amazon and anti trust in US, as in EU


#298

We had hundreds of Nintendo product listings that were affected/deleted by this “error”. Is there any way to “bulk fix” this without spending hours relisting everything one by one?


#299

I am going through each system one at a time, I had some that looks like Amazon relisted and others that were gone and needed to be checked individually, this will probably take weeks to get sorted out for us


#300

Don’t you also have to provide an invoice of a ‘bulk listing’ or ‘bulk purchase’ of the same game? Isn’t one of the requirements like a bulk of 10 or 15? None of the
is requirements make any sense to me either. It would be okay to have one or two out of four or five but all four or five? I pick up Nintendo games from yard sales. Am I supposed to ask for a receipt? Lol

Usually if I come across something I can’t list I’ll find or try to find an alternate listing on Amazon. Meaning another listing someone else made. Sometimes even a repro listing…I’ll make it cheaper which oddly enough some of the new repros are 2-4 times more expensive than the actual authentic game itself. And in my description the very first word it is “Authentic”!

If I come across the listing that I’m blocked on & or doesn’t have any alternate other listings then I normally just sell it on Mecari. That’s been pretty helpful for me.


#301

Aside from the obvious “item must match the listing exactly” issue, at the point there is an actual crackdown on those “repro” listings, you don’t want to have an offer on those pages. You should close the listings and delete them from your inventory entirely. If you can’t list it under the authentic game’s catalog page, don’t sell it on Amazon. It’s your business, but eventually those selling fakes will get shut down for IP violations or selling counterfeits, and you don’t want to be collateral damage on one of those listings. Nintendo is fiercely protective of its brands.


#302

I used your method and it worked for about 80% of my Nintendo listings. For the other 20% they are still showing up as inactive. I have changed the price by a few cents so there is an actual change but to no avail. Any ideas? Do you accept red or green mushrooms as payment?


#303

let’s say I am a Trumper, as you say, wouldn’t I take the side of the big bully corporations?

I not saying they cannot pick and chose their buyers, but whether public or private, the laws apply to both. And there is also legal recourse for account closure without valid reasons. Might take a boatload of attorneys, but the laws are there.

However, blocking sales at the request of the manufacturer is copyright bullying, that is against the law!

Also, it sounds like you have a problem with the constitution? Too sad!!!


#304

Can someone tell me why I am still allowed to sell all my Nintendo games such as the one below

ASIN: B000IOM45C

What is so special about this Nintendo game?


#305

Because you didn’t read the last few posts immediately above yours

So, my Nintendo listings did not get automatically reinstated, but considering my seller account is completely fubar at this point, I am not surprised.


#306

I am confused

Can you explain? I still have my intendo games active on amazon. But i have no invoices. Would i be in trouble?
