The Worst Part of Selling on Amazon?
If you ask 100 Amazon sellers what's the worst part of selling on Amazon, the #1 answer is the requirement to receive customer returns for any reason.
The #1 Reason Most Amazon Sellers Go Out of Business?
The biggest reason Amazon sellers go out of business or quit selling on Amazon is because customer returns have drained all their profits and left them with no other choice but to stop selling on Amazon.
Why Are Customer Returns Crushing Amazon Sellers?
Because returning a product on Amazon is so easy, customers have become conditioned to recklessly buy items on Amazon with little or no concern if the item they are buying is actually the item they need. Will it fit? Is it the right color? Does it work how the want it to work? No worries, if not, they'll simply return it.
Amazon sellers will tell you they receive a higher % of customer returns on Amazon than any other sales channel.
Amazon Sellers are Left Holding the Bag
At the end of the day, sellers are left holding the bag when it comes to Amazon's loose customer return policy + buyer's reckless buying habits.
Note: Amazon has recently closed their "Vendor Central" program and is shifting more and more of their marketplace business to 3rd party sellers instead of buying and selling their own products. One reason for this shift is the high cost of "Doing Business on Amazon" with their high customer return rates.
Here's the Catch - Most Customer Returns are NOT DEFECTIVE!
This is extremely important...most customer returns on Amazon are NOT DEFECTIVE. That's right, there was nothing wrong with the product. It wasn't manufactured incorrectly. It wasn't misrepresented. The seller did nothing wrong to warrant the customer return.
80% of customer returns that Back-Track inspects are NOT DEFECTIVE! The returns are simply an open box, maybe a part or 2 missing and the product looks to be brand new or nearly brand new. After our thorough testing process, our techs find nothing wrong with the product most of the time.
What are Amazon Sellers Doing to Beat the System?
Before you decide to close your Amazon shop. Before you decide to quit selling on Amazon. Take a look at what other Amazon Sellers are doing to BEAT THE SYSTEM!
Until now, Chinese sellers have limited options on how to handle customer returns sitting in Amazon's FBA warehouse.
- Ship the items back to Hong Kong or China for repair.
- Allow the customer return product to expire and Amazon automatically "Disposes" of it for the seller. This typically means it will get liquidated on pallets through online liquidation channels.
The truth is, both of these options are horrible. It's a lose-lose scenario that Amazon sellers have simply lived with as a "Cost of doing business" with Amazon.
