Don't Get Red Carded by marketplaces

According to N.K. Babar, a spokesperson for BloggerKhan, the website for small business tips and techniques, "marketplaces like eBay, Amazon and Walmart are big, you are not. Don't get stuck on I am right and they are wrong." "Understand that you are small and it does not benefit you to pick a fight with the crocodiles. They make the rules and you must learn to make peace with those rules no matter how unfair they may seem", he further adds.
As Mr. Babar explains, "merchants with a handful of products can keep track of new products with ease but when you have thousands of products, it is very hard to stay on top and you may end up loading products that one marketplace allows but the other two don't. For example, Walmart may allow you to upload knives but Amazon may consider your type of knives as weapons and they may not allow them." "If you inadvertently upload them, you may get your account restricted. If you repeat the same mistake a bit too often, your account may get suspended", he further elaborates.
"Merchants with a large number of products are better advised to use tools like UploadMyProducts to set up their filters and block such products automatically and minimize the chances of uploading banned items to a marketplace"
