When seeking selling approval for higher priced DVDs you get this information:
Only sellers who meet the following criteria are eligible to apply:
•If you do not have a Professional seller account, you must agree to upgrade to a Professional selling plan within 30 days after your application is approved
•Order-Defect Rate (ODR) of 1% or less
•Cancellation Rate of 2.5% or less
•Late Shipment Rate of 4% or less
Your current metrics are available in the Performance section of your seller account.
If your account does not meet the minimum criteria, your application will be rejected. Please take corrective action and ensure your performance metrics meet the minimum criteria before completing the application.
(makes absolute sense!)
If you meet that and apply for approval you then get this:
Do you buy the products you intend to sell directly from distributors or liquidators?
(that knocks out all sellers that get items from thrift stores, garage sales or personal inventory)
How many units do you intend to sell?
(They refuse your application unless it’s over 30)
Do you have three purchase orders (POs) or invoices from the last 90 days displaying your largest inventory purchases?
Requirements for purchase orders or invoices
•Must be dated on or after October 16, 2014
•Must have document issuer’s name, address, phone number, email or website
•POs must have your name or issuing business name
•POs must have contact information for your business (e.g. address, phone number, email or website)
•Please obscure pricing information (optional)
This just takes the small seller out of the equation completely.
Applications are now being taken but the approval process is ridiculous!
