So where does this leave suppliers? Rather than spend time speculating, let’s start with what you know right now.
If you didn’t receive your Purchase Orders, you’re probably being shifted from Vendor Central to Seller Central. That’s not necessarily the worst thing, but Seller Central is a platform that has real ramifications for your business model.
The nature of your Amazon order management will be sharply different. Instead of selling to an Amazon retail buyer — the typical wholesale-style Vendor Central transaction — and then letting Amazon market and sell your products, Seller Central is self-directed. You’re now the one who lists, sells, and markets your products.
