You can request it once every 24 hours.  Click on the amount of money owed to you in the top right corner of the main dash.  Then click the yellow box after that.

Yeah I don't think that's an option for my account.  More detailed info says that funds can be on hold for up to 14 days and then they are transferred "on the subsequent settlement date".   So perhaps it can be requested after those 14 days are up and it's no longer part of the "unavailable balance".

 

I have been selling on here for a few years now but I have a very minuscule amount of feedback.  Maybe 1-2% of people leave feedback.

I have a very small % of feedback, but I've always been allowed to disburse at my choosing.

You're not supposed to sell those as new, that's why they removed the ability to leave a description.

That's funny because the game I listed like that was one I bought from Amazon. It still has the original seal on it and it's never been opened so I have no problem listing it as long as I can leave a description. A couple weeks ago I received my worst new game from Amazon. It didn't even have the seal. http://imgur.com/a/amcob

 

If you had read a few posts up you would know the more likely reason they removed the ability to leave a description.

From what I've heard they stopped offering the request disbursement option a couple years ago for new sellers. Everyone who made a seller account before then still has the option.

Thanks DealSeeker. Hope things are going well for you. It sucked when you were absent

Things are improving to say the least. A lot better than they have been. Thank you! 

 

I must say in my absence and or lack of my posts Fragems, Zantetzuken, Glass_Ghost_0, and NotMyWaifu :razz: along with bunch of others did a bang up job of keeping the thread on point and posting deals that I don't normally post. Hence, thanks everyone for their contributions. I know I have bought stuff others have posted here so thank you. 

 

I will be around more than I have been (still not as much as I used to be) but I will be around.

That's awful.  I started selling on there in the summer of 2012, right after my first year of law school.  I remember it because I had a pile of textbooks and study guides to sell, and the books on Half.com weren't selling like they used to.

Grabbed a Switch Pro Controller (LN) for $62.99. Probably a dumb price to buy it at.

 

Not sure why since I dont have a Switch but Im sure I'll get one some time this year.

 

Has anyone seen a Switch pop up?

Yes, I have seen it pop up at least 4 times now. The last one popped up yesterday for the grey one listed as LN for $269.99.

This is correct.  Pre-existing seller accounts are grandfathered in.  For accounts after the deadline, the daily dispersals are not available.

Thx DS2U, grabbed Lord's of the Fallen for the X1. Listed as factory sealed so I will roll the dice at that price :)

Well the LN Lord's of the Fallen showed up today. Case is cracked and the bottom is taped shut. LN is a stretch but the price was good so I will suck it up

Really? Then how are people who do this kind of scam v

 

 

The second screws Amazon.  With Amazon, payment clears in about 3-5 days.  Seller makes off with the money, clear that account of any money, and Amazon has no recourse other than attempts to find them with local police in their Asian country (good luck with that, Amazon).  The first scam is preying on stupid customers.  The second scams Amazon because the buyer gets their money back.

 

Article on the second type of scam: https://www.forbes.c...g/#4881191f3ea6

 

Technically they can both be the same scam, where the scammers may get $$ from two sources. 

 

I'm afraid of the repercussions for honest sellers.  We may have new restrictions on when we can get our money.  This is a serious problem that I can't believe Amazon has let get to this point.  Though, I've been able to purchase dirt cheap video games from legitimate used book companies because they price it at whatever is the lowest price (without any game pricing knowledge or investigation on their part).  My $17 CIB Mario Kart Double Dash came last week.

 

getting away with it?

I don't care what anyone else says, that game was super fun and is totally worth playing through. Good score on your purchase

getting away with it?

Whether they wait 3 days or 14 days, they're still getting free money.  Amazon allows you to "take" the money when you enter a tracking number, so these people enter a bogus tracking number (for new accounts they have to wait 14 days before it's dispersed).  Because it's from China, they have several weeks before the buyer can open an A to Z claim because the buyer must wait until the expected delivery window closes.  Within that time, they can make many sales and get many names, addresses, and phone numbers (yes, your phone number now goes to marketplace sellers and is available to view by the seller until they mark the item as shipped--- that's a new thing I've noticed) for other nefarious purposes.

 

That grandfathered in thing makes it even better for the scammers if they get an older account because they can have their money sooner and more people will buy from a seller with positive feedback.

 

If the scammer depletes the bank account where the transfer goes, Amazon essentially has no recourse.

I just noticed that Amazon no longer allows "NEW" item descriptions in the Marketplace.  Basically, anytime you list an item you can't put in details on its description.  You can still list it as NEW but you can't put any details about the condition (factory sealed, etc). How long has this been going on for?  I also noticed that the descriptions I had put in for my NEW Marketplave items are now gone.

 

This further complicates the scamming problem as a lot of scammers likely wouldn't take the time to add details on the item's description.  A nice description, with good feedback, pretty much meant it was a legitimate item for sale.

See my earlier post about how this removal was likely because of a scam.

This seems like a very serious problem that Amazon would want to fix asap. Although savvier users can figure out which ones are scams, your average person is going to try buying from the scam listings and although they might not lose any money at the end of the day, it's going to be a terrible experience and soil Amazon's reputation. It's gotten 10x worse in the past week or two.

So my (G) PS3 came in a generic white box. I opened it up and the Blu-ray slider was completely open with the lens completely exposed... I'm concerned now and can't test it until I get home this evening. Should I plan on returning it or should I give it a go? Not sure what return policy is for Amazon Warehouse.

That happened with my PS3 as well from AWD. I tried it with a few games and it worked fine.  The cover doesn't stay in place very well during shipping I suppose

Got my AWD copy of Bioshock Infinite Premium Edition and.... it was just a copy of the regular BioInf game. Nothing premium about it. Already sent it back for return. Best of luck to everyone else who ordered it.
