I just despair at the constant stream of sarcasm and negativity on these seller forums. It must be so dispiriting for the thousands of Amazon employees who work hard to deliver a good service.
Amazon has done a fantastic job in almost impossible circumstances this year. More generally, the Amazon marketplace in combination with FBA enables businesses like mine to grow much more quickly and profitably than we could hope to achieve alone.
Sure there are problems and deficiencies which need to be fixed but we’ve just had our best year by miles and it’s all down to Amazon’s truly impressive ability to upscale its global logistics capacity in the blink of an eye.
For those of you who think Amazon fees are too high, try doing everything they do for yourself and see how quickly you go bust.
So come on people, give some credit where it’s due and stop blaming Amazon for everything that goes wrong with your businesses.
Thank you Jeff Wilke and I hope all at Amazon have a very Merry Christmas!
