Guitar Straps Lead to Questions about Amazon Handmade
I don't know the experience of other handmade sellers on Amazon but Amazon does not appear to be enforcing their listing categories in the Handmade Department, at least when it comes to handmade guitar straps.
Currently, there is no way to list handmade guitar straps without abusing the listing rules, yet numerous "handmade" guitar straps appear if you search the Handmade Department for guitar straps. So many are listed now that I thought I must have overlooked some notice that a Music Accessories category was now available, tried to apply, and received an email from Amazon that no category was yet available for my products.
I have reported, on more than one occasion, these improperly listed handmade guitar straps with no action taken by Amazon to remove them. I know that my category of products is being misused. I just wonder at this point how many other sellers who play by the rules are seeing similar listing abuses with no action by Amazon to enforce their listing categories.
Thanks for listening to my moment of grousing.
