Amazon Stopped Buying My Products – How to Find a 3rd Party Seller

Has Amazon Retail recently stopped purchasing your products?

According to ZeroHedge.com, Amazon abruptly stopped buying products over the past two weeks from many of its wholesale vendors and is instead encouraging them to sell their products directly to consumers on Amazon’s marketplace.

This is all fine and dandy…but what if you don’t know how to do that? What if you don’t have the resources in place to make the transition in a timely manner?

If that is the case, your best solution is to find an established 3rd party seller to step in and take up the slack.

Once you have identified the correct 3rd party seller, you can expect them to start sending you POs the size of what Amazon retail was doing.

How do I determine if they are the right one for me?

Determining if a 3P seller is right for you will depend on your goals and your expectations.

Are you looking to maximize your success only on the Amazon platform? Or do you also want them to assist you outside of the Amazon marketplace?
