This is the second installment in my series about the differences between the eBay and Amazon selling platforms. For each of the next eight weeks I will continue to discuss these areas and try to dispel some of the myths that surround selling on Amazon.com
I asked veteran Amazon sellers via Facebook what differences they found between selling on eBay and Amazon FBA. There were ten areas identified as noticeably different between the two platforms:
- What You Can Sell
- The Rules
- Customer Service
- Getting Paid
- Sales Tax
- Profit Potential
Today I'll discuss what NOT following the rules can do to one's ability to sell on Amazon.
Both eBay and Amazon, like most e-commerce selling platforms, have guidelines for sellers to follow in order to sell their goods on the platform. In the end it's all about the buyer experience; both platforms look at customer service, listing standards, and product offerings, among others, to determine a seller's fit for the platform.
