I’m a Taiwanese Amazon seller on iPhone 5/5s, 6/6s, and 6/6s Plus cases. I took over the store last August thought the products were good and believed that I could save a nearly broke factory and its Amazon store.
I was charged LTSF immediately after I took over the store.
Now I’m facing the over $1,000 FBA LTSF. I’m thinking few ways to prevent this by the following solutions but I need you guys advise.
1. Remove those products back to Taiwan which is very unrealistic since the shipping might take up to $4,000.
2. Repricing those products to only $3/pc, but am still not confident if we can sell them out successfully.
3. Giving away to exchange for reviews, not as simple as I thought, I have more than 2,000 overstock products but only get less than 10 review request this month.
I’m desperately want to know how other sellers do about this. Please kindly give me some suggestions.
P.S. we cannot remove those to anywhere in the states since we don’t have anyone there.
How about finding a distributor who can store them for you? In the UK I have a distributor called expeditors and I believe they have warehouses all over the world find the nearest warehouse to the Amazon centre that is stocking your products and move them into an expeditors? I don’t know if this is a solution for you but you can explore this. Expeditors will give you a local pick, pack and dispatch option so when your stock levels are low in Amazon they can drip feed locally into Amazon warehouse. This is a storage solution idea – again I want to stress that this is only an idea and if I was in your shoes I would explore the costs of doing this.
