Are You Selling Hygiene Or Topical Products In Europe?

April 5th 2021 a factory seal will be required on all hygienic and topical products. The seal comes with a slew of requirements to deter forgeries. Amazon wants returns to be pristine for resale so they are looking for an intact factory seal. The seal will prove that a product was never opened or used by a customer who returns it. Products not fitted with a qualifying seal by 5 April or returned products with a damaged or missing seal will be marked unsellable and will be disposed of at the seller’s discretion.https://sellercentral-europe.amazon.com/gp/help/GQFZBRVVEEG3ZE9C

Fakeish News

We’ve heard from an anonymous source that Alexa has just purchased a controlling interest in Paramount Pictures prior to the release of Paramount plus. Though we’ve been unable to confirm this, it appears that the reason for this investment is Alexa's newfound interest in film production and getting in touch with her more artistic side. You may find subtle changes to the cast of certain films in IMDB, but don’t worry, this is normal … Additionally the soon to be released film Without Remorse staring Micahel B Jordan (and by the way, this is being produced in conjunction with Amazon Studios) is said to have a sudden cast change … Lauren London due to inexplicable health concerns has suddenly been removed from the production to be replaced by none other than … Alexa.Talk about making a grand entrance! Yeah! We’ve sure got some exciting times in our upcoming movies.Exciting indeed! Until next time, keep selling well! That is all for this episode, cheerio!
