Re: Here's a different take on things!
Thanks, folks - we're probably going to end up listing a whole lot of jewellery items - that hurts our bottom line 'cos amazon's commission is 25% - but that means that the affiliates' potential is a better chunk of change.
We've always had an issue with finding the right kind of high-end product that would sell reasonably quickly for a decent amount of money, with a "Scottish" tag. Maybe time to lose the Scottish bit and find something popular, affordable and profitable!
I do enjoy selling on amazon - but it's a brutal marketplace unless you happen to be the only person selling an item or have the best reputation; it's designed to send the price down, 1¢ or more at a time.
