Amazon's Payment Period Changes from 14 Days to 1 day ?
Recently, there are sellers said that the Amazon Background added a "manual payment" function, and this feature is that changes Amazon's previous 14 days payment period to 1 day.
However, this feature may only be available to part of 2017 registered sellers, including the United States, Europe, Japan!
A seller said: "In part of the cases, Amazon backstage withdrawals from T +14 can apply in advance, up to 50% can be extracted."
For cross-border e-commerce sellers, the health of cash flow concerns the survival of the enterprise. In recent years, as the cost of manpower, logistics, warehousing and promotion has risen, more and more sellers have begun to try the overseas warehouse and FBA stocking mode. The large amount of cash flow is restrained by the rising cost of stockpiling and other spending.
Financial flows of Cross-border e-commerce sellers are not optimistic, whether it is slow-moving stock or the fluctuations of any part of the chain in the entire cross-border e-commerce transactions, may result in the collapse of the funding chain, and making the whole operation is paralyzed.
Listed companies, industry top sellers may reduce the corresponding risk through external funding support, but for cross-border e-commerce sellers, is just like "walking on the cutting edge." On the other hand, for the small and medium-sized sellers of cross-border e-commerce, the large gap between them and big sellers or even listed companies is comes from the funds.
In the supply chain, selection, and operations, some optimization of small and medium-sized sellers may as big as big sellers and listed companies. However, financial bases is a constraint to further expand their business and growth.
According to another industry worker said: "At present, the investment of capital market for cross-border e-commerce is partial to industry-oriented TOP sellers and listed companies, and small and medium-sized sellers may have been out of range."
In view of this, for small and medium-sized sellers of cross-border e-commerce, at this stage, it may have been quite difficult to expand their scale of operation through investment from capital markets. Coupling with the compliance issue of cross-border e-commerce sellers own operation, the road to obtaining external financial support through bank loans also seems difficult.
To reduce the risk of the rupture of capital chain in operation, and maintain the health of corporate cash flow, cross-border e-commerce small and medium sellers can only be strictly controlled in every aspect of operations, reduce costs.
If the Amazon's "manual payment" function comprehensively come into effect, the seller can effectively reduce the pressure on cash flow. Everyone can has more funds for the development of high-quality products, expansion of operating scale and so on. Whether for Top sell or small sellers, it has a very positive impact.
