Book Sellers on Amazon: Diversify the Source of Inventory
If you’re getting a bunch of books from eBay, thrift stores, Goodwill, or wherever, Zachary has some advice for you to be prepared in case there’s a problem with Amazon.
One of the things we end up recommending to our clients who sell books is reaching out to either a big distributor or a really well-known bookstore like Barnes & Noble and buying either one or two different books, just to make sure that you have an invoice ready.
In case Amazon ever does come at you with, “Hey, we need proof of product authenticity,” or “We need to see invoices,” one of the things you can say is, “Well, this is one of our distributors,” and you can list off their contact information, you can throw in an invoice, and that will put Amazon at ease regarding where you end up supplying your books from.
Now, I’m not saying it’ll work 100% of the time, but it’s a useful tool and an asset to have whenever dealing with Amazon.
What you can do is bootstrap the invoices, the receipts, and the sources that may be sort of lower quality with a higher quality one. This works when we’re arguing plans of action to Amazon. When it comes to plans of action, we have literally dozens, if not hundreds, of videos and articles on plans of action and every plan of action, whether it’s for you, a bookseller, or a seller of any other product, all it is is an exercise in persuasion. You’re trying to persuade the reader in India that works for Amazon to reinstate your account or reinstate your listing. This argument works. Mix up your sources and diversify, so you have invoices and receipts from multiple types of sources for your books.
