Amazon Declares War on Small Businesses
A couple months ago, small sellers on Amazon’s platform got quite a scare. With absolutely no notice or explanation, the company halted orders from thousands of its smaller suppliers.
Small businesses that do most of their sales on Amazon panicked. Was this some massive purge of Amazons thousands of mom-and-pop vendors?
Panic ensued until orders started back up a few weeks later. The company said it was just an effort to weed out counterfeit accounts. And small business owners breathed a sigh of relief.
Until last week, that is...
You Better Sell a Ton if You Want to Stay
That’s when Amazon announced plans to purge thousands of small vendors from its marketplace.
In case you’re not familiar with how sales on Amazon go, let me fill you in:
About half of the goods sold on Amazon come directly from an independent merchant. The other half come from small merchants who sell directly to Amazon — like a wholesaler.
Amazon buys from the mom-and pop vendors in bulk and then resells the products itself. But that comes with costs. Lots of them.
Amazon has to store the products. It has to ship them. It has to track them as inventory. It has to sell them, too. And it has to pay employees to do all that.
It’s cutting into Jeff Bezos’ profits. And he’s had enough.
So he’s decided to squeeze all of the small businesses selling goods to make himself richer.
If you’re selling less than $10 million a year on his site, you’re about to get the boot, so to speak.
That’s thousands of mom-and-pop retailers that will go out of business just so Amazon can make a little more money.
You Can Stay, But You Gotta Pay
You see, they’ll still be able to sell on Amazon. But they won’t be bulk orders. Every vendor will have to switch from wholesale to marketplace.
That means small companies will be competing with the likes of P&G, Lego, and Sony to score individual sales.
And it also means, if Amazon deploys the changes fast, that they’ll likely lose a lot of potential sales during the three months it takes to become a marketplace vendor.
Small businesses, as you’ve no doubt heard politicians yell, are the backbone of our economy. They’re owned by our neighbors and friends.
But they’re just pawns to Jeff Bezos. They’re just stepping-stones to make him a little bit richer. As if $151.6 BILLION isn’t enough to keep him happy.
He’s willing to rip the livelihood right out of average folks’ hands to get a few million more in his bank account.
I’m all for efficiency and for cost cutting. But when you’re stealing your profit from folks like my friends and me, I take it a little personally.
And I start to look for ways to get some of that stolen property back.
Make Jeff Bezos Pay YOU
This case is no different. Bezos has quite enough. And Amazon’s profit margins are just fine.
And using “progress” as an excuse for killing off the small business owners that helped make your company is just wrong.
So when I heard about a completely legal way to skim billions of dollars from Amazon, it piqued my curiosity. And I started to dig.
Remember those costs I said Amazon is trying to cut? Well, they’re just a drop in the bucket compared to the real price Jeff Bezos pays to keep Amazon running.
I’m talking about more than $13 BILLION per year in bills to people and companies that keep Amazon growing.
And last year, nearly $1.5 billion of that got diverted into the bank accounts of a group of savvy investors.
It was all completely legal. And there’s nothing Bezos can do to get the money back. In fact, he can’t even stop it from happening again.
This year, it’s going to be even more than last. We’re actually going to break through that $1.5 billion we nearly hit last year.
And the next set of checks gets printed in just a few days.

In literally less than two weeks from today, Amazon’s going to make one of the biggest payments in its history to this group.
None of the members are getting paid because they’ve invested in Amazon stock. Most of them don’t even have a Prime membership.
But they’re going to be splitting a massive payout next month all the same. And when I say massive, I mean it.
This one is looking like it’ll top $330 million. That means some people will be cashing checks for as much as $14,700 next month.
And this isn’t the last payment we’ll be getting this year. Like I said, we’ll split more than $1.5 billion in 2019.
But it is by far the biggest payment we’ve received so far. And I want you to be on board for it.
The members of my wealth-building community are already profiting from it.
They’re excited for the next round of payments, but with so much money coming, they insisted I share the opportunity with the other members of our Wealth Daily family.

So my partner and I put together a presentation detailing the opportunity. It’s got all the information you need to get started collecting your checks, too.

You’ll need a few minutes to go over the details. But it’ll be some of the most profitable time you’ve ever spent.
Then, once you’ve got the skinny on how to get yourself in on the next payout, you’ll need about five more minutes to get your name on the list.
For less than a half-hour’s work, you’ll be set to collect your share of these massive and growing payments.
But don’t wait to get on board. June 12 seems far away — it’s next month. But it’s going to creep up on you before you know it.
