Bad News For Amazon Porn Buyers

Thursday 18th March

It’s just turned 8 am. I am awake, and like every other day the first thing I do when I open my eyes is check my phone for email to see if I have any sales. This morning though an email I had from Amazon was worrying, not a great way to start the day. I shall explain…

Amazon in their infinite wisdom are implementing a new VTR, (Valid Tracking Rate) meaning that as of the 19th of April sellers who do not meet this new metric may and probably will have their seller account suspended. So what does this really mean?

The Amazon Seller Forum is full of speculation as this new VTR rate metric has been mentioned on the forum days ago and quite rightly so.  The statement the Big Bad Amazon Powers That Be have made is ambiguous as to what shipping services will count towards a seller’s VTR and what will not. Most sellers like moi who sell magazines ship their orders using Royal Mail Large Letter and if the order value warrants it used signed for, not that customers sign for packages anymore but it does increase the insurance value should the package go astray, most likely snaffled by mister postie. I have had many conversations with Amazon seller support, I’ve been told Large Letters won’t count against you but the next agent says it will. If the case is the latter then it means all orders will have to be shipped using a FULLY trackable service which is out of the question for a low value wank magazine. So unless Royal Mail Signed For Large Letter counts towards a seller’s VTR it will be goodnight from me Amazon.

The other issue is that, if sellers remain on Amazon and do use a FULLY TRACKED delivery service then prices for porn will skyrocket unless the seller is daft enough to continue as they are and make a loss on each sale. Only time will tell. Meanwhile I’m planning to focus on my eBay  and my Etsy store and of course my website.

If I’m honest, losing Amazon will be a godsend as selling on their is stressful and my health is priceless

Stay safe and have a great day
