So now we have all agreed the payment and disbursement is a good addition to Amazon.
Today I was on the phone again asking why my “Keyword” Easter Bunny was not working. They said it is buried in all the other Sellers that listed this Keyword. I understand that, I am on individual and only recently sold two items, due to my item being easier to find now. I said there are only 7 pages though of sellers, when you type Easter Bunny into the search on www.amazon.com, and I am not on any???
The response I found really disappointing if it is true and why I am asking on the forum
The operator said, so the customer can have a better experience we are only listing 7 pages on all our items. This is a new change. I said:
Sellers pay $39 USD per month to sell on the platform and Amazon as not advertising some ads alongside with others? That has to be illegal.
How can you take this from some sellers and not advertise their items on the same fairness as other sellers with the same Keyword?
There would have to be MANY sellers with this Keyword that is not being used. Yes you can say well some sellers SELL more than others. But we all pay to have our item on their pages.
I don’t normally complain but, I’m sorry this is very wrong. They used to have 100’s of pages and yes I understand most people won’t scroll through. Well they will just stop looking, Amazon should not be refining this when they are not refining there monthly cost to the majority of sellers.
It has made me think twice about upgrading to professional and giving it a proper go.
