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.
