When it comes to Amazon listing optimisation, a lot of brands wonder about making updates to content in Seller Central or Vendor Central. While it’s important to keep your SEO fresh, relevant, and on target, you also need to allow time for your content to perform in the Amazon algorithm.

With millions of sellers raking in sales on the platform, Amazon can seem a lucrative business to brands around the globe. Conservative estimates say more than 60% of sellers turn a profit in their first year, so why not get your piece of the pie?

While the program offers a number of benefits and can make eCommerce businesses efficient, it also presents a range of challenges that some sellers are not prepared to deal with.

CRaP stands for “Can’t Realise Any Profit,” and in the Amazon vendor space, it’s a popular term. To put it simply, these are products that do not make a profit. For a long time, Amazon’s focus was on gaining market share across numerous product categories, even if this sacrificed their bottom line. Now that Amazon is more established with large market shares in major retail industries, the focus has shifted to profitability. Amazon’s main focus now centers around their profit margins. Amazon will refuse a product if it is unable to provide them with a decent profit.
