    Had to shut down my Amazon due to sales issue. Around 10% of orders had to be canceled due to out of stock from the supplier. Amazon metrics will now start to shut down store if your negative metrics get too high. But good news is that making $$$.:cool::cow04:

    that Amazon will shut you down if you are using a drop shipper and your negative metrics get too high. When having to cancel orders in combination with late shipments. So had to stop the store.

    I think he wanted to show us that he is drop shipping and so the $6.9K isn't going into his pocket but someone else's... :rolleyes:

    I think what OP is trying to say is "Watch your six before you get into selling stuff on Amazon through dropshipping because a crappy dropshipper can get your Amazon account banned".

    Amazon has been doing that for years. It's not new news, OP.

    I did make profit about 35% but also had to cancel some orders which aren't showing even one for $1,200 worth of items :( due to supplier not having in stock in time. Drop shipping is nice, but over head might be a way to go if you want positive ratings.

    It seems like all of my orders are getting cancelled on Amazon this last week or so (I'm a consumer there). It's very annoying.

    This is funny, I am a private labler and my first week going live I did like 60+ sales and wasn't expecting it. I did go with FBA so when running out of stock I won't be able to take sales, but you don't want that to happen. Being out of stock is not a good thing. I've increased the selling price to slow daily sales and I've put in a new bulk order with my supplier. My seller ranking and item ranking is pretty low so I have a feeling as I rise my sales will increase significantly. I'm hoping I can keep up with demand.
