Amazon Filler Checker

Amazon offers free delivery for all of £20.00 or over even for non-prime members. I am still a non-price Amazon shopper recently bought a school bag from Amazon worth £16.99. Not surprisingly, it carried £4.95 delivery charge as it was an Amazon prime product.

Free delivery for orders of 20 on Amazon

Being put off by delivery charge, I was looking for a product worth £3.00 to make order of £20.00 for free delivery and then I discovered this brilliant tool called Amazon Filler Checker which let me search for product with the price and category I wanted.

It is a brilliant tool as it helped me make a better use of £3.99 delivery charge.

eBay and Amazon Consultancy in London


Today we had a really interesting day with a Toy Online Seller in London. The business, a manufacturer of hand-made toys, is selling successfully on Marketplaces ( eBay, Amazon) and Website.  We were booked to help the business grow across all channels and find new channels to grow the existing business. So, we spent the day discussing:

   #1  How business could effectively use Amazon FBA?

   FBA is a good option for many businesses but not for all. With our experience of helping sellers across many        categories, we were able to help business decide the right way forward.

#2  How to expand sustainably across Europe ?

   Whilst Amazon is relatively easy platform to expand into Europe and so is the eBay, we focussed our discussion    most profitable products to sell in Europe.

   Additionally, we found out Amazon US as a very lucrative market which could be true for many retailers. We   used Amazon research tools to help out estimated sales for our product category which helped to make a right decision.

   #3  eBay and Amazon SEO.

eBay and Amazon are relatively easy platforms to use and can be mastered in a day but experience always helps. We discussed proven strategies to get on the top of eBay and Amazon search results.

   #4  How to leverage Amazon Marketing options ?

   Amazon is an innovative retail channel and most fail to take full advantage as there are very less information out   there. During this discussion we were able to include best practices of using Amazon PPC.

  Additionally, we discussed how Amazon Vendor account could benefit the business with increased sales.

   #5  Choosing the correct Multichannel platform.

   This was an interesting discussion as there are so many out doing similar stuff. We took “business & user centric”    approach which enabled us to finalise the right channel to consider.

Further more, we discussed how we can grow website sales with Google Shopping and Social Channels.  It was a really enjoyable day and we ended the day with a strategic plan for the business. We are increasingly seeing businesses demanding for one to one session to develop the business are we are getting better at this. Free resources like webinars and blogs does help to understand so called “expert” opinion but personalised session like today aims to help business grow.

We can help your business grow too on Marketplaces and through your own website. So, get in touch today to find out how we can help.

How to Optimise Amazon Product Listings ?

We have been working recently with a Cartridge Manufacture based in Ireland. Though our ultimate aim was to improve sales we went through some key elements of listings to get there. Here’s what we did

#1 We found out that the listing lacked image that actually depict what product is in search so we created new product with actual cartridge, branded box and colour on the top right. Here’s how it looks in search

This has positive impact on increasing conversion.Amazon Product Listing Optimisation

#2 We worked on titles and added popular search terms “Replacement Cartridge”. This increased product impressions and ultimately sales.

#3 We worked on product description to make it more readable. We made Model number bold as customers look for
the replacement cartridge for the model of the printer. We also made rest of the description reader friendly with bullet points.

Description becomes critical as there were detailed information about the product. Also, on mobile devices description is seen first then key features. Amazon Product Listing Optimisation

#4 After working content we rolled out Automatic PPC ads which generated additional sales.

#5 Product reviews are important doubtless and we created a template and started communicating actively with previous customer to write product reviews. We saw result within 24hour and we will continue to do so.

Actively Encourage Product Reviews to improve Amazon product ranking

These are very easy to use methods that every businesses should consider following. Content is definitely the key, if you don’t have rich content it will be very difficult to get the conversion. We are here to help so, just give us a call on 029 02236 2596 or 0751 88 39629 or email us if you have any questions.

EAN for your eBay Listings


There is a lot going on about EAN and UPC recently. For eBay sellers this has been a real pain. However, Amazon started indexing products with EAN / UPC since the start with exceptions in manufactured products and seeds. Out of interest, I looked into one particular EAN in Google “8711600536661” to see what results I get. I immediately saw it was a Dove soap with images and few other things that are listed below:

#1 UPC index link shows this product originated in the Netherlands and also gives the details of company who registered this set of codes.  If you did not know any products that starts with prefix 870 – 879 belongs to product from the Netherlands as this is  allocated number for that country by GS1.

#2  The result further down shows this product’s availability in Russia and Italy. There is another link that shows its origin in Germany which is conflicting information from the one shown by UPC index above.

#3 Towards the end of the first page, the result shows that pricecheck is the UK distributor for this soap.

#4 When clicked on shopping  there was only one result with only four sellers retailing in the UK including two on eBay which points out to an Italian account. The supply chain from pricecheck seems to end with only few retailers in the UK.  So, this product may either be discontinued product or perhaps other reason which pricecheck may be able to answer.

There is a wealth of information you can dig with single set of numbers. We could easily find  where it was made and who is distributing it in the UK. And if you had this EAN  with your eBay listings your products will be identified easily as genuine with the rest of the listings and this is a very good reason for eBay to take it seriously. Currently, EANs are flooded in the market through resellers and they are cheap ( 10 for 99p). These may work but they are not assigned to your company and any serious business would  consider getting their own set from GS1.

We have recently completed  a project for a midland based eBay seller to include EANs in all of their listings at a very reasonable cost.  If you need help in getting you products listed with EANs please get in touch.
