4 Mistakes Every Amazon Seller Should Avoid


With the economy not looking up still, many people are looking for way to make a good passive income. Selling on Amazon is being found as quite profitable for making additional income from home. However, new sellers without enough experience and know-how about product sales often end up making some basic errors which result in unsatisfied buyers, lower sales and even suspension of accounts in some cases. Read on and find out about the 4 basic mistakes that are often made by Amazon sellers. If you avoid these as a seller Amazon might not take it too kindly.

Perplexing titles

Give clean and concise titles to each item that you showcase on your listing page on Amazon. Often, sellers tend to stuff their product titles with keywords in order to make them rank better on the search results. Do not include exclamatory words, adjectives or unnecessary information into the titles.

Not keeping Amazon-appropriate photos

The Product Image Requirements section of Amazon clearly mention that all the photos uploaded onto the website should be in focus, kept on a pristine white backdrop and not have any inset images or graphics or any extra text. Many new sellers, especially those habituated to selling on eBay, tend to flout this policy. Amazon follows strict rules about keeping a professional catalog. You can use 3d cart Amazon to make the process easier for yourself.

Entering wrong weights

Many sellers end up entering wrong product weights for the items offered on FBA. FBA or Fulfillment by Amazon is a program that allows sellers to ship various products to the warehouses of Amazon. Once the item is sold, the order is fulfilled or shipped by Amazon. While a new item is entered in the catalog, sellers have to be cautious about properly entering the weight for it. Otherwise, they have to pay additional fees for the product. Many sellers tend to commonly enter wrong weight for the items.

Sending glass containers

There are strict rules in FBA regarding the type of items that can be sent to the fulfillment center of Amazon. Even if you send glass containers, they should not be over 4 ounces and have to be bubble wrapped. The container should also last after a drop test of 3 feet on concrete surface.
