Is your Pocket Book and Amazon Account Going to Get Burned by the Solar Eclipse?  

–> Potential Suspensions coming for selling Solar Eclipse Glasses <–

Thousands of 3rd Party Sellers sold solar eclipse glasses that did not meet Amazon’s Safety Standards. What does that mean for you as a 3rd Party Seller?

If you sold glasses to a customer and that customer ends up injured, or simply claims they got hurt, they can then sue you for damages. Even if the glasses have the correct warning labels on them a customer can still claim that they have eye damage. This means you would have to hire an attorney and defend yourself. All of this could cost thousands and thousands of dollars.  

Amazon issued and email to stating the following:  

Amazon has not received confirmation from the supplier of your order that they sourced the item from a recommended manufacturer. We recommend that you DO NOT use this product to view the sun or the eclipse.

Amazon’s email to customers explains that certain solar eclipse glasses have not been proven safe for their purpose, and promises to refund the purchase price. Many other Amazon customers will use the glasses and then send them back for a refund. How is this going to effect your Amazon store? We all know that Amazon uses return rates to measure seller performance. How may all these returns effect you and your store metrics? A few suspension specialists I have spoken to feel like bulk Suspensions may very well be on the way..
