Entering July, sellers are beginning to enter the peak season, and they need to be careful not to let the new regulations affect their business.
The editor has helped you sort out the new Amazon regulations that will affect your store operations in July. Come and take a look!
U.S. FBA inventory can be directly sent to Mexico and Canada
Since July 1, FBA sellers in the United States can use the FBA inventory stored in the Amazon fulfillment center in the United States to deliver sales orders to Canada and Mexico, eliminating the need to manage inventory at three sites at the same time, cross-border shipping and import duties, etc., helping Sellers expand sales opportunities on three major sites in North America.
It is worth noting that this program will automatically join the FBA remote fulfillment program if the seller does not manually cancel this service, so if the seller is worried that his products in the United States may have a higher return risk in Canada, Mexico, or It may involve trademark, infringement and other issues, remember to manually set the exit from the remote delivery plan.
U.S. logistics remote delivery fees to rise
Amazon's US station announced that due to the rising costs of distribution, transportation, warehousing and buyer service in North America, the US station will increase Amazon logistics remote delivery fees starting June 30.
This new policy should be read in conjunction with the previous policy. The increase in long-distance costs means further compression of profits. Among them, the freight to Canada will increase by about 5-7%. The greater the weight and size of the item, the higher the increase. Mexico rose as much as 20%.
Germany EPR will take effect soon
Amazon announced that the Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) on Amazon Germany will come into effect on July 1, 2022. German station sellers please pay special attention:
If you have not uploaded and verified your [German Packaging Act] registration number (LUCID number) before June 15, 2022, Amazon will start blocking non-compliant products from June 15;
If you have not uploaded and verified your German Packaging Act registration number (LUCID number) by June 30, 2022, Amazon will temporarily suspend the sale of all your products for that Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) product classification.
Amazon Europe launches new product warehousing plan
In order to encourage sellers to use FBA services, Amazon Europe has launched a new ASIN to provide free storage, free removal and free return processing benefits, making it easier for sellers to list products while reducing operating costs.
The program offers the following benefits to ASINs new to FBA:
90 days of free monthly storage and 180 days of free removal for a limited number of units.
Additional storage, removal and return offers on clothes, shoes and bags.
5% monthly rebate on branded ASINs sales. Rebates apply to shipping charges for brand owners who complete brand registration.
Amazon changes current search mechanism for specific categories
Recently, Amazon has changed the front-end search mechanism for keywords. In the past, when customers searched, they would directly display some long-tail keywords related to keywords, but now they can see a row of selective buttons below the keywords. Some attribute words help sellers better target the products they want.
At present, it has also been found that in addition to material, selective buttons may also allow buyers to choose price, size, item type, etc. first. The new search mechanism requires sellers to enter more optional items when editing listings. These mandatory items will not affect the listing of products, but will help the A9 algorithm to capture more keywords and increase the probability of products appearing. .
