I don't think Amazon really cares as Amazon still makes something for the marketplace seller selling something thru them. Fulfilled by Amazon just means Amazon makes even more.lcmt wrote: ↑Jan 11th, 2019 7:51 pmPeople need to clarify the following as some people got mix-up the definition of the marketplace seller :
(1) There are two methods sold by marketplace seller in Amazon. FBA (Fulfilled by Amazon) and Shipped by the marketplace seller.
(2) The rebate is automatic or they need to submit a claim
Honestly, there is no way ebate will offer rebate for the item shipped by marketplace seller. If so, it offers a big loophole to commit fault.
Check out the fulfilment fees....$2.41 for a under 1lb item. Added to that there are storage fees for the inventory they hold.
Let's say the item sells for $24.10. $2.41 is 10% of the revenue=> they can afford 8% rebate.

Check out the "referral fees" for "sold by" marketplace sellers...most are far greater than 8%

Judging by what Amazon makes from "marketplace sellers", paying a 8% rebate is not losing them any money.
Where is the "big loophole to commit fraud"?
Failure is always an option...just not the preferred one!
