Apparently, apology emails are going out to customers for delayed processing and shipping times of Merch by Amazon t-shirts. This tells me we are about to run into capacity issues as Q4 ramps up with more sales volume. On the flip side, Merch by Amazon has a new policy on November 15 that removes t-shirts that don't sell. If we have search throttling again like we did last year and earlier this summer, we're in for some trouble. Search throttling = slow or no sales on some designs = deleted due to new policy.
What's the goal, and what's the intent Merch by Amazon team? Is Amazon phasing Merch by Amazon out by sliding in a new policy just in time for search throttling season to clear the marketplace of new sellers?
