    Recently, Amazon officially sent e-mails to children's toy products sellers using all-Chinese mail. The content of the e-mail is to provide a toy certificate before October 23, otherwise the inventory will be removed...
  Xiao Bian looked at several Amazon sellers, and found that sellers who meet such requirements do not account for a small number. In the future, security certification is the standard configuration of the seller. Before entering this category, you still need enough understanding and professionalism.Fortunately, Amazon is currently only strict inspection of products, not for stores. All the seller has to do is remove the product, the store is not affected, but it is necessary to act as early as possible.
  Amazon gives you the deadline to remove the inventory within 30 days. You have to start the removal of the order. It takes 10 days to remove the order. You want to sell it at this time, and want to sell it again. Immediately in the peak season, Amazon will put you in the cold and put you in 40 days and then remove it.
