Activate Amazon vacation mode and prevent delivery delays

To keep your customers happy on Amazon, you should avoid deliveries arriving late. But what do you do if the delivery time is extended due to regional holidays? One possibility is to activate the Amazon holiday mode. We'll show you how to make it work. In addition, there are new regulations for the sale of erotic items on Amazon. Furthermore, we would like to inform you about the current webinar dates.

H2 To enable Amazon Vacation Mode

To avoid delivery delays, you can either extend the processing time or activate the so-called Amazon holiday mode. In fact, doing neither of these will negatively impact your late delivery rate. This rate should always be less than 4 percent. Accordingly, for every 100 items, only 4 should arrive late to your customers. When it comes to holidays that are celebrated throughout Germany, Amazon itself responds to the delays and informs customers about the expected date of receipt of the goods. In the case of regional holidays, things look different: Customers are sometimes not informed and may react unhappily to the fact that the goods arrive too late. This is because they may not be aware that it was a holiday at all. In addition, Amazon counts the late deliveries to the corresponding rate. Therefore, our tip: Either adjust the delivery time for regional holidays or activate the holiday mode.

H2 New guidelines on erotic articles

Amazon recently set new guidelines for erotic items. Among other things, some items, such as massage wands, have been added to the category. However, if you offer an item yourself that now falls into the category, you don't have to pay any special attention, as the changes will happen automatically. However, you do need to make sure that all items are new and have a clearly visible expiration date. In addition, there must be no offensive language included. The guidelines for abusive content are also exceedingly strict.
