In this post we would like to point out an opportunity to save money on Amazon shipping. Other news concerns the Amazon webinars in August: We present you the most important dates. We also talk about the new laws on sales tax and the associated Amazon promotion.
As an Amazon Seller you can save money on Amazon shipping by using logistics centers in our neighboring countries Poland and Czech Republic. If you do this, you pay 35 cents less per unit sold. For smaller items, the price is reduced by 25 cents. Storage in these countries is even desired by Amazon, as the shipping network is thus better balanced and the transport to the various destinations works optimally. You can find the corresponding setting in Seller Central under the options for cross-border shipping. However, you should note that this option only exists for Amazon FBA sellers. If you need more information about what Amazon FBA actually is, you can find the appropriate post here.
In August there are again some interesting webinars for Amazon Sellers. Below you can get an overview of the dates. You can also find the events later in the webinar library.
You can also find out about the different forms of advertising available on Amazon here.
The new laws regarding Amazon sales tax mainly affect those sellers who are not based in the EU. Specifically, since July, they now have to pay sales tax on goods under a value of 150 euros from abroad or on goods that have been stored within the EU. If you need help with tax matters of this kind, you can sign up for VAT services. The relevant service providers will then help you with filing and registration in several EU countries.
