Did you notice they will now charge 9% on SHIPPING charges now?
($5000 per month for us of EXACT SHIPPING COST that we charge equals an ADDITIONAL $450 per month in fees)
And any discounts they give TOP SELLERS are no going away?
The only discount is for the highest level of sellers and that only applies to the ITEM SALES not shipping.
This is an INCREASE.
