This article is about what Amazon sellers will soon have to consider regarding the ASIN specification. The change concerns the new mandatory attribute “melting temperature”. We will also discuss delivery delays with Amazon FBA shipping. Furthermore, we will show you how you can save a lot of money on the sales tax service!
New attribute for ASIN specification
Amazon has recently introduced a new attribute that you can select when creating a listing. The attribute refers to the melting temperature of products such as chocolate, lip balm or items made of wax. Currently, the attribute is still voluntary for ASINs, but it will become mandatory from 27 May 2021. Therefore, it is best to add this information to as many ASINs as possible now so that they comply with the future guidelines.
Delivery delays with Amazon FBA shipping
Due to the current very high volume of deliveries for Amazon FBA shipping, there are delays. As a result, some deliveries are arriving at the logistics centre later than expected. Amazon has commented on this and announced that they are trying to solve the problem as quickly as possible. In addition, they have assured that all goods will still be stored safely until deliveries can be resumed.
Use the VAT service free of charge
Amazon VAT services are an excellent way for sellers to get help with their tax affairs and save time as a result. The service also allows you to put tax registration in the UK, Germany, Italy, France, Spain, Poland, Czech Republic entirely in the hands of the service providers. By registering this month, Amazon offers you another advantage: the first 6 months in which you use the VAT services are completely free of charge for you! After that, you will have to pay a monthly fee, which starts at 33.30 euros. So take advantage of the opportunity to save a lot of money until then.
