How to Approach Amazon's Rolling Long Term Storage Fees

the amazon files Aug 13, 2018
Something is on the horizon that will NEGATIVELY IMPACT the profit you earn in your Amazon business. This is not something you want to sweep under the rug and ignore. 

For years, Amazon has charged sellers long-term storage fees every six months (February and August). Sellers like you could get away with paying minimal monthly storage fees on items collecting dust in Amazon's warehouses. Amazon's warehouses were stuffed to the gills with long tail inventory - items that sold once in a while with no consistency. This became a huge problem for Amazon warehouses during Q4 a couple of years ago. Amazon has been trying to manage the problem ever since. Back in March, Amazon stated that they would be implementing rolling long-term storage fees starting on September 15. 
  • What does this mean?
  • How will it affect your profit?
  • What can you do about it?
In this episode, we break down what Amazon’s new rolling long-term storage fees could mean for your business...

As humans, we all tend to struggle with things like motivation, procrastination, and fear.

We discuss the five ways an accountability partner will help you conquer your business and personal goals, share advice on where you can find an accountability partner, and explain the qualities you should look for in a partner.
