Amazon Q&A roundtable

Amazon Q&A roundtable

Open Q&A sessions with our community partner Fuel My Website
about how to get your products listed on Amazon.

In partnership with Amazon experts and GS1 UK community partner, Fuelmywebsite, we are hosting open roundtables for you to ask any questions about getting your products listed on Amazon.

They help brands maximize sales and profitability on Amazon by providing complete set-up, strategy, management and support.

First Q&A

The first of our roundtable sessions was well attended and we were happy to see so many members and new faces.

Kevin Dixie is the founder of Fuelmywebsite and Amazon expert alongside Lorna Leaver and Daniel Bateman from GS1 UK.

We have outlined the questions answered in the webinar below.

    Questions asked

    1. How long does it take to set up an account and sell on Amazon?
    2. Does Amazon accept baked goods with shelf life of 12 days or less?
    3. I would like to know if we can have both accounts for Amazon Handmade and Amazon General platform?
    4. We used to sell a lot on Amazon and then the sales stopped and we’re not sure why! Can you help?
    5. If you have a licence to be an exclusive supplier of a product, how can Amazon help to stop the sale of counterfeit products, or products organisations are not licenced to sell?
    6. I have my licenced barcodes in the GS1 system where I can add product data, but I wonder if Amazon checks the data or do they just match the company name and brand?
    7. What are the differences between a vendor and a Seller Central?
    8. We would like to know if the weight data is just the product weight, or overall weight including packaging?
    9. I sell my own branded FBA hair oils and wonder if my products need individual packaging, or can I send them to Amazon loose wrapped in bubble wrap?
    10. Recently when adding products I receive an error saying the UPCE EAN does not match the product, has something changed?
