Low-priced products are sometimes not very profitable on Amazon. One solution can be to sell the corresponding items in a higher quantity each time. Fittingly, Amazon has recently introduced a new minimum order quantity feature. Therefore, we show you how to create linstings with minimum order quantity. We also have a tip for sellers who want to use the sales tax services in Italy. Furthermore, there is important news for sellers who ship their goods themselves.
Set minimum order quantity on Amazon
The new minimum order quantity feature on Amazon applies to products that cost less than 10 euros or 10 pounds. In just a few moments, you can combine them into one sales unit. In doing so, you have two different options. On the one hand, you can use less than 50 ASINs. If you want to create a quote for them, you need to click on “Manage inventory” and edit the corresponding items. In the “Listing” window, you can then configure the minimum order quantity. On the other hand, you can of course select more than 50 ASINs. For this, you will need the Listing Loader. You also need to save prices and quantities to a file and use the Stock Wizard. Alternatively, you can use custom stock files.
By the way, you can create offers with minimum order quantity on Amazon both with seller shipping and FBA shipping. However, with the latter you will receive an additional discount. If you still have questions about the creation of the offers, please write us briefly and without obligation.
Italian tax ID
In a previous please write us we already informed you about the VAT services on Amazon. If sellers outside Europe sign up for the services, you can get a VAT ID for the Italian market especially quickly. This usually takes only one week. Accordingly, these sellers should register for Italy quickly. All you need is an external tax service provider, which you can obtain through the program. In the first six months, this is even free for you. After that, you pay 33.30 euros for each country in which you use a tax service provider.
Automated returns during shipping by seller
Finally, another important piece of information for sellers: Amazon has announced that return requests for orders shipped by sellers will be automated from the end of August. For sellers, this means a large amount of effort will be eliminated. However, you should make sure that the return conditions do not change.
