I noticed that another seller has listed exactly the same items as mine, but for more than 5 times the price. He hasn't piggy backed on my listings, but rather created completely new listings with all of my images and content. As one example, I sell an item for $9.99 with free shipping and he sells it for $51.00 plus $4.49 shipping. What is the thinking/logic behind doing something like this? At first I though maybe he has a very dedicated customer base and can sell for much more $$$ and then have me ship to him and he'd then re-ship. That would account for at least some of the markup, but he hasn't done that. In fact, he has 1 lifetime feedback.
Use the Contact Seller Support link at the bottom of this page (the page you are reading right now)
- They are trying to sell the item in a category they have been blocked from
- they are trying to sell a brand they are blocked from or that's gated
- they are taking a popular item and trying to catch a % of the high traffic here on amazon and grab the sale. if 50k people search for that item and that seller gets 1% of those searched directed at his item and then convert 1% of those they still get 5 sales. They also avoid price competition obviously.
