WORLD OF AMAZON

Reminder: Updated Amazon GuidelinesTomorrow, November 3rd, Amazon begins enforcing their updated communication guidelines. For reference, here’s the PDF from Amazon covering the updates:Amazon Communication Guidelines PDFMBS users can log into their Email Rules here:Log Into MBS Email RulesMost of these updates are subjective and require you take a direct look to see what, if anything, needs to be adjusted. Not a bad idea to take a quick second or third look.Under the new Guidelines, here are reasons sellers may send proactive messages:
  • Resolving an issue with order fulfillment.
  • Requesting additional information required to complete an order.
  • Asking a return-related question.
  • Sending an invoice.
  • Requesting product review and/or seller feedback.
  • Scheduling the delivery of a heavy or bulky item.
  • Scheduling a Home Services appointment.
  • Verifying a custom design, or any other reason where contact is required for the buyer to receive their purchase.
NOTE, in order to prevent Amazon from flagging messages after November 3rd, there are a few specific items we can guard against. Namely:
  • Product Images (the ${sku-image} variable in the message body)
  • Coupons
  • Emojis
Any messages that still have one of those three in them will be paused in order to prevent them from being blocked. Do look over your emails for other points in the guidelines, but those in particular we’ll pause.We’re all used to rolling with the changes on Amazon, and this go-round is no different. To all of it we say, Onward and Upward! 

MBS IN THE NEWS

This week …MBS Releases Two New Podcasts On PPC And Product Sourcing 

HUMOR

Reaching the end of a job interview, the Human Resources Officer asks a young engineer fresh out of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, “And what starting salary are you looking for?”The engineer replies, “In the region of $150,000 a year, depending on the benefits package.”The interviewer inquires, “Well, what would you say to a package of five weeks vacation, 14 paid holidays, full medical and dental, company matching retirement fund, and a company car leased every two years, say, a red Corvette?”The engineer sits up straight and says, “Wow! Are you kidding?”The interviewer replies, “Yeah, but you started it.”
