Is your prep service a service provider, or a competitor? Is prepping their main business, or just something they do on the side?
Those are important questions that we discuss with potential clients on a regular basis. The implications are many:
- We see the invoices attached by our clients' suppliers; if we were sellers ourselves, we could leverage they research.
- We see the ASINs attached to our clients products.
- If we were sellers, would we prioritize our shipments over our client's shipments?
We believe that when you operate a prep service, you should not be a seller yourself because that is a serious conflict of interest. Our employees are not allowed to be sellers on Amazon, or any other platform, or they will be dismissed.
Ask your prep service the hard questions.
