We sell used media, individual copies. We are sourcing a lot, every day. At any given time, we have around 3,000 units for sale. The turnover is crazy. Everything sells within 90 days at most. We do some self-fulfillment on eBay, which is great. I’m glad to have that outlet for collectibles and other special items. If we convert to Amazon self-fulfillment, we will go nuts here. Yes, of course it’s “possible” to do, but absolutely everything would have to change, and we would have to rent a space (NYC, hahaha).
It’s very upsetting how Amazon is handling the inventory limits. I don’t deny that they are necessary. However, it’s unethical to increase the limit by the hundreds pretty much every week since April, obviously in response to the good items we send in, and how our inventory performs, and there really is only good stuff that Amazon customers want, and then, without anything changing on our end, the limit is dropped overnight from consistenly 2,000 additional units available to ship, to 500 below the limit, no explanation given, no solutions offered, with all metrics in the green and no excess inventory, everything exactly as they want it to be.
To top it off, they offer a $14K loan, so I can send in more inventory, and list 138 items that are in very high demand, that they want me to ship in today. Oh the cruel irony…
Seller support knows nothing. They read from help pages.
