How to get my listing off of the "add on program"

Amazon Seller Topics
Hey everyone,

I recently sent in a new product to FBA, and at first the messed up the dimensions of the product and the weight. When FBA received the product, my listing became a part of their add-on program in which buyers could only order my item from Amazon if they made a purchase of $25 or more. I figured the add on program was showing up on my listing because the dimensions were wrong. Now the dimensions are right. The part that's bugging me is that there people competing against me with their own listings of the same (different brand) item that have the same dimensions and weight. They are also shipping through FBA and keeping a lower price than I am, but their item is not a part of the add on program. Does anyone know a way to an item off of the add on program?

I just added a 5th variation of the same items I have had listed for about 4 months, and it too is listed as an "add on itme" in spite of it being the same size as the other 4 and 20% lighter, so yes if anyone has any insite, much appreciated.

I don't think there is an exact science behind it as it seems to vary from product to product.

Weight and price have a lot to do with it. However, it seems like of a product seeks pretty good (5 or more a day) they seem to put it as prime, at least most of the time.

There doesn't seem to be any science on how they pick it to be prime or add-on

Add-on Items are a "death stroke" for products.

In Toys & Games when the price hoovers around $5.00 to $6.00, I can almost guarantee they will become All-on Items; above $7.00 they're usually OK. When sending Graduation and Father's Day inventory, I didn't send any that fell into that category.

The problem is caused by all the "sellers" thinking they are so smart, they'll race each other to the bottom to get the Buy Box; not realizing their actions are killing all FBA sales for that product.

Without getting the prices raised on Add-on Items, they will be "stuck" there.
