Hello & Welcome

Did you know you can fully automate Amazon’s Review Request feature in SellerMail. This feature has been available for some time, though you may not have been aware. Using this feature does not count against the email totals in your SellerMail plan.

Check out Tips & New Stuff below for more.

Another big item of note this week, Amazon will now begin enforcing liability insurance for sellers. This is because beginning September 1, 2021, for products sold through, Amazon will facilitate resolution of property damage and personal injury claims between the customer, the seller, and their insurance provider.

To learn more about this upcoming shift, and what it means for you as an Amazon seller, check out Amazon’s info page in Seller Central:

Amazon A-to-Z Claims Process For Property Damage And Personal Injury

And there’s more!

Yes indeed, as with every issue we bring you plenty of juicy tips and helpful links to information. This issue we’ve got trends, strategies, extra Amazon insight and more.

Read on!

And as always, have a great week ahead.



Get Customer Reviews

For those of you using our SellerMail tool for automated customer emails, the 

“Request a Review” emails do not count toward your overall Sent count.

That means “Request a Review” emails sent using SellerMail’s automated campaigns will not incur charges for any overage amount. What this means for you is that your automated review emails are free. And what that means is … what are you waiting for?

Let’s get those review requests rolling!

For those of you not using SellerMail, now’s the time to fire it up and get started collecting those Amazon reviews.
