Hi Sellers! I have a new Engage with Amazon question for you...

What are the 3 most important values that guide your business?

Excited to see your answers!

What's Engage with Amazon? I like to think of it as a section of the forums where we can connect and collaborate together as a community. Everyone is welcome to chime in on the discussion and share their unique perspectives. There's really no pressure here, just a fun way to engage with each other. Looking forward to connecting with you all!

Things to Know - Your Seller Account
by Seller_4GjtS9k0cnHHvin New Seller Community group

Welcome to all of the community members! We have many new sellers joining us here in the New Seller Community daily. With that, we are going to jump into some "Things to Know", a new series we will publish here over the next several weeks.

Now that you have read your Amazon seller agreement (you have read it, right?) and associated policies and guidelines, we want to give you some additional information over the coming weeks that is key to selling successfully on Amazon.

We find that new sellers on Amazon often bring with them their experiences with other selling services and assume that all seller services work the same. They might think that there's no need to pay much attention to the details in your seller agreement and the program policies and guidelines. As a result, we receive communications from sellers that begin with, "I didn't know I was supposed to...".

We don't want you to find yourself in that position, so we are providing you with some of the things that are most commonly overlooked by new sellers over the next few weeks, starting with your Selling Account.

Things to know

  • You may only maintain one Seller Central account for each region in which you sell unless you have a legitimate business need to open a second account and all of your accounts are in good standing
  • You can help build customer trust in your business by providing clear and detailed information about your policies

Things to do

  • Provide the business name that will be displayed on Amazon so that customers remember your company
  • Upload your logo to your seller account — your storefront logo image must be exactly 120 x 30 pixels
  • Only enter company information specific to how you manage your business on Amazon

Things to avoid

  • Including website URLs in product feeds, business name, or other company information that might refer customers to your website or a third-party website

I am hopeful many other sellers within our community will chime in below with their tips and tricks they've learned while starting out.

Come back next week as we will cover Listing "Things to Know" and as always pop those questions you may have below!

Hello, Forum Community!

I want to invite you to participate in a discussion about books that have helped you grow your businesses and be successful in the world of selling on Amazon. We all know that knowledge is key to success, and books can be a powerful tool to learn and grow as entrepreneurs.

I would love to hear your recommendations, but to start, I want to share a couple of books that I personally find valuable:

Eric Ries "The Lean Startup": This book helps you understand the importance of agility and iteration in the business development process. Learn how to validate ideas quickly and efficiently, minimizing risks and maximizing opportunities for success.

Tim Ferriss "The 4-Hour Workweek": This book changes your perspective on work and lifestyle. It helps you focus on the tasks that really matter and automate processes to free up time and energy for what you are really passionate about.

I look forward to hearing your recommendations and sharing experiences about how books have positively impacted your businesses! Don't hesitate to join and share your top reads!

Don't Miss Out! The Amazon Seller's Playbook on Sourcing and Selling Products
by Seller_4GjtS9k0cnHHvin New Seller Community group

The Amazon Seller's Playbook: 5 Must-Know Guidelines for Sourcing and Selling Products

As all of you have know by now, there is so much to learn as a new seller with Amazon. Sometimes it can be overwhelming and getting started is not always easy. With so much information to learn and absorb it is easy to overlook some of the very most important policies and requirements when starting out. One of the biggest questions we receive is how to find or source products to sell. Whether you're selling branded products from a third party or your own private label items, there are several guidelines you need to be aware of.

With so much information across the vast internet from various sources, a fellow community manager has cut through the noise and put together a Sourcing Playbook, outlining the 5 must-know guidelines for sourcing and selling products here on Amazon.

This is certainly a thread that I would recommend reviewing and bookmarking as a resource.

Take a look here!

Give us a thumbs up below if you found this information valuable!
