Amazon Offers Sellers an Hour of Coaching for 75 Bucks

Amazon Support Connect

Amazon Support ConnectAmazon has been sending an invitation to sellers this month giving them the opportunity for coaching. The Amazon Support Connect program costs $75 for a one-hour session and is conducted via video conferencing.

This comes on the heels of programs Amazon introduced for high-volume sellers earlier this year. The Amazon Marketplace Starter program costs $700/month for 3 months, while Amazon Marketplace Growth costs between $2,500 – $5,000/month for 12 months.

The email Amazon is sending this month reads as follows:

Some sellers discussing the program on industry boards expressed skepticism over the support Amazon Seller Support could provide sellers through a one-hour coaching program, with one seller predicting the service would advise sellers to lower their prices and pay for ads on Amazon, with no regard for product margin.

Sellers were more receptive to the Marketplace Growth programs even though they were more expensive because of the potential to resolve business-critical issues.
