Amazon Vets New Sellers through Video Interviews

Amazon Vets New Sellers through Video Interviews

Amazon is testing a new program to vet new sellers, according to Geekwire, which broke the news on Sunday.

Amazon told the publication it began the pilot program early this year that initially included in-person appointments with prospective sellers, but it switched exclusively to video conferencing in February due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Geekwire said Amazon had vetted 1,000 merchants from China, the UK, Japan, and the US through the new program.

You can find the details in this Geekwire article.

  1. If there was ever anything that screamed “sellers are employees!” it has to be these interviews. Bonus points if they ask you about your biggest weakness or where you see yourself in five years.

    1. “Bonus points if they ask you about your biggest weakness”. Ain’t that the truth? Hahaha! My biggest weakness is: I’m a #CoronaCoward who’s too scared to take packages down to my local post office so I hope that Amazon’s mighty fleet of delivery vans can get my merchandise to the buyers!
