FAQ

General information
1. What are Strategic Account Services programmes?
Strategic Account Services are a range of account management programmes that provide selling partners with advice through a Marketplace Consultant to expand on Amazon. We recently rebranded our Amazon Selling Partner 360 service, which is now called Strategic Account Services (Pro Plan).
2. What is the difference between the Essentials programme and the Pro programme?
Our programmes are designed to meet your specific needs. The Essentials programme targets small- and medium-sized businesses looking for a scaled-back service with a Marketplace Consultant who will provide advice on the business components of your Amazon Marketplace. As part of your business review every two months, your Marketplace Consultant will examine your company's performance and progress made on defined action points and update you on the month's top themes. In the meantime, your Marketplace Consultant will be available via email.

The Pro programme is our most comprehensive service offer, with a more customised service provided by a dedicated Marketplace Consultant, including holistic advice, access to analytics and reports, monthly business reviews and support for global expansion based on your needs. In addition, a dedicated expert will help you to solve your operational problems. In the meantime, your Marketplace Consultant will be available by phone or email.
3. What are the eligibility requirements for the programmes?
We review every application for Strategic Account Services programmes before accepting it. We take into account business maturity and sales turnover on Amazon, alongside other factors. If your application is not initially approved, you may become eligible in the future as you continue your Amazon journey.
4. If I don't own a brand, can Strategic Account Services help me?
Yes, the programmes are designed to help brand owners and resellers who list their products on Amazon storefronts. Your Marketplace Consultant will help you identify and prioritise strategic initiatives based on your business needs.
5. Do Strategic Account Services programmes cover my UK and EU accounts?
Yes, our programmes offer support from a Marketplace Consultant for expansion and growth in storefronts across the UK and the EU.
6. How will I be charged if I sell on multiple marketplaces in the EU/UK?
If you have a unified account, you will only be billed once, regardless of how many storefronts in the EU/UK you sell in. If you have separate accounts for each storefront, you can choose the accounts we handle and you will be charged separately for the selected accounts.
7. Will Strategic Account Services programmes contribute to growth outside of the UK and the EU?
Amazon operates in numerous geographical areas with account management structures to support sales in the countries in question. If you have subscribed to the Pro programme and meet the eligibility criteria, your Marketplace Consultant will be able to tell you about new market opportunities and connect you with teams that can help you grow outside of the UK and the EU, working closely with the international sales team. Once you’ve prepared to expand, you'll need to work with account managers, sign up to programmes for local selling partners (if desired) in the relevant geographical area to expand. Separate fees may apply for participation in other programmes for partners in other geographical areas. This does not apply to the Essentials programme.
8. I have multiple seller accounts. Can I work with just one Marketplace Consultant to help me with all of my accounts?
Selling partners should register each account separately in Strategic Account Service programmes. Depending on the Marketplace Consultant's capacity, you may or may not be able to work with a single Marketplace Consultant across all of your accounts. We'll work closely with you to determine the best way to manage your multiple accounts.
9. I am already working with several account managers at Amazon. Why should I pay for this service?
By joining one of our Strategic Account Services programmes, your Marketplace Consultant will advise you on specific topics based on your needs. You will be able to 1) work together on your strategy for the duration of the service (with no time limits), 2) get support on more than one programme or feature in particular, 3) receive information proactively if growth opportunities arise for your account (e.g. marketing, catalogue optimisation, pricing, brand tools), 4) have access to full reports and analyses (unlimited only for the Pro programme) and 5) be informed of the latest beta releases and pilots (for the Pro programme only). As part of the Pro programme, you will also work with an expert dedicated to solving operational problems and with a Marketplace Consultant who will support you on strategic topics.
10. Do Strategic Account Services programmes help to expand the businesses of the selling partners?
We're constantly monitoring the growth and satisfaction of our selling partners and use this monitoring to shape the future of our programmes. We invite you to read the case studies about the positive experiences of other selling partners by clicking here.
11. I am having issues with my Amazon account. Can I get help before signing up?
You can use your access to the Selling Partner Support service regardless of your registration status. Do not hesitate to use this service if necessary. Once you sign up for one of our programmes, you'll have access to a Marketplace Consultant to help you grow. As for the Pro programme, this includes a premium service with an expert dedicated to solving your operational problems (see question 12 in the FAQs for more details).
12. If I sign up for one of the Strategic Account Services programmes, can I expect to receive different or preferential treatment with respect to Amazon policies?
No. Amazon policies are the same for all selling partners and are applied in the same way whether you are signed up to our programmes or not. All selling partners have access to Selling Partner Support and receive the same support, regardless of whether they are signed up to one of the Strategic Account Services programmes.
13. Can I switch from one programme to another for different levels of support?
We will recommend the programme that best suits your needs. If you are signed up to a programme but need additional support or want to work on more action items than are offered under your current programme, we can suggest that you switch to a different programme, if desired. If you have any questions, contact your Marketplace Consultant.
14. What will my first month with the Essentials programme look like?
As part of the Essentials programme, your Marketplace Consultant will contact you to schedule an introductory phone call and launch meeting, where you will define your main growth driver. Next, we will guide you by providing training and sharing analytical reports with you in order to identify strategic recommendations for your account, with concrete action points. We will work together on an ongoing basis to improve your performance on Amazon and examine your progress as part of our business reviews every two months. In the meantime, your Marketplace Consultant is always available to you via email.
15. What will my first month with the Pro programme look like?
As part of the Pro programme, your Marketplace Consultant will call you to organise a welcome meeting. During this meeting, you will meet and get to know our expert dedicated to solving operational problems. You will receive a welcome pack with the most important information, webinars and programme guides. During your second week, we'll assess the current performance of your Amazon account and define priority drivers for the coming months. Then, we will delve into your areas of interest by sharing analytical reports with you and developing strategic recommendations for your account, accompanied by concrete action points. We will work together on an ongoing basis to improve your performance on Amazon and examine your progress as part of our monthly business reviews. In the meantime, your Marketplace Consultant will be available by phone or email.
Your Marketplace Consultant
16. Can my Marketplace Consultant help me to solve existing operational problems in the two programmes?
The goal of your Marketplace Consultant is to provide you with strategic advice, not to work on operational problems. By participating in the Pro programme, you will receive support from an expert dedicated to solving your operational problems, as well as from your Marketplace Consultant.
17. Will my Marketplace Consultant provide me with support on our Vendor Central account?
No, the programme only covers your seller account.
18. Are Marketplace Consultants Amazon employees?
Yes, all Marketplace Consultants are Amazon employees.
19. What training do Marketplace Consultants receive to help sellers with Strategic Account Services programmes?
All of our Marketplace Consultants receive comprehensive training and have access to teams of internal experts to best assist selling partners registered in Strategic Account Services programmes on topics such as order and inventory processing, selection and conversion growth, merchandising and advertising, etc. In addition, our Marketplace Consultants will study your account in detail to find the strategy that best suits your specific needs.
20. How do you choose which Marketplace Consultant is assigned to me?
As a selling partner, you cannot choose your Marketplace Consultant. However, our Marketplace Consultants will be assigned to selling partners once their portfolios have been reviewed. We ensure that all Marketplace Consultants are trained to the same high standards and that their portfolio of selling partners is limited to ensure continuous excellent service.
21. Will our Marketplace Consultant stay the same for the duration of our participation in the programme?
While we cannot guarantee that your Marketplace Consultant will not change, we aim to ensure maximum continuity between selling partners and their Marketplace Consultant.
22. What happens if I am unsatisfied with the level of service?
The satisfaction of our selling partners is our top priority. Each quarter, you will receive a satisfaction survey where you can report your concerns. These results are closely analysed by programme managers to ensure that we are providing a high-quality service. You also have the option of requesting a call with a manager at any time to discuss any problems and how we can resolve them.
23. Can I meet my Marketplace Consultant in person?
You can certainly meet your Marketplace Consultant in person, in our offices for example, for business reviews or to discuss actions to be taken in the following months.
Promotions, merchandising and programme opportunities
24. What type of marketing support (promotions) will we receive?
Your Marketplace Consultant can advise you on the types of Amazon offers that exist, including coupons, flash sales, best offers and Star offers. Promotions are not guaranteed as part of your participation in Strategic Account Services programmes, as fees may still apply to certain types of promotions. You do not receive free or discounted promotions as part of your participation in Strategic Account Services.
25. Can my Marketplace Consultant help me to set up promotions?
Yes, your Marketplace Consultant can explain how to set up promotions and show you the different types of promotions available. In some cases, depending on your eligibility, your Marketplace Consultant may put a star offer in place for you. They can also help you to develop a sales strategy based on your business goals and provide strategic advice, which can improve the chances of your promotion being approved.
26 What information will be provided by the reports that you share?
Depending on your needs, we offer various tailored analyses and reports for the Essentials and Pro programmes. These reports focus on catalogue optimisation, selection and development of products, advertising and promotions, order processing, brand management and sustainable development.
Programme fees and engagement
27. When should I expect to be charged?
You will be charged within the first five calendar days of the month. Your monthly fees are calculated based on the previous monthly sales turnover (based on your previous calendar month's gross sales) on Amazon storefronts in the UK and the EU. The monthly fees are net of taxes and are not refundable.
28. How do I pay my fees?
Fees are paid through your account balance. If the account balance is insufficient to cover the monthly invoice, the remaining fees will be charged to the registered credit card.
29. Can I pay less for fewer services?
Both Strategic Account Services programmes are offers of fixed services that cannot be separated from the programmes at this time.
30. How long do I have to commit to the programme for?
We require selling partners to sign up for Strategic Account Services programmes for at least six months. You can unsubscribe after 6 months by giving a minimum of 30 days' notice. Amazon reserves the right to end your service at any time. There is no maximum time commitment.
