This episode includes questions about handling returns through Amazon FBA, product categories as it relates to seller accounts, product selection tips, and customizable product offers. This episode is going to ramp up your ability to make your private label business rock!


What happens when a customer returns one of my products?


One of the aspects of Amazon private label sales that is seldom talked about in depth is the issue of product returns. It’s going to happen. You are going to have products returned either because they are broken in shipping or have some sort of flaw. What happens at Amazon when somebody returns one of your products and what can you do from there? Scott’s going to walk you through every step of the process so you know what to do, on this episode.


Should I keep all my products in the same categories?


A listener has noticed that some Amazon sellers have their products listed in a variety of categories. She’s wondering if there’s any advantage to this, or if it’s a waste of time. Scott’s got a definite opinion about this and it all centers around the use of keywords and how they impact what a searching customer is going to find when they are looking for a product. There is some powerful food for thought in Scott’s response to this question, so be sure you take some time to give it the thought it deserves.


Is there any way to make a customizable offer to an Amazon seller?


Wouldn’t it be great if you could offer your products in a customizable format of some kinds? A listener today asks if there is a way to make a custom offer to particular Amazon customers. While Scott’s not sure exactly what will come of it, he chats a bit about a new Amazon program that’s still in beta mode, called Amazon Custom. You can find a link to the program in the resources for this episode, and hear what Scott has to say about it by listening.
