Amazon Sends Emails to Toy & Hobby Sellers Giving Specifics about Criteria for Holiday Season Selling

Amazon Toys & Games Selling Guidelines – Success for 2009 

This year, Amazon is sending out emails to their Toy and Hobby sellers letting each merchant know if they are on track to sell on Amazon during the busy holiday season.  I like how the email doesn’t just have a general “you are on track” or “you are NOT on track” message but rather Amazon’s email gives specifics about each line item requirement.


Below is the email we received today:
