We’ve pulled our parts from for the time being

While has taken over more and more of our overall sales over the last 10 years, it has become a more difficult and frustrating place to sell over that time.

  • They now restrict access to any customer information, so we have to ask customers just to send them a replacement or missing piece.
  • Under many circumstances, we aren’t allow to even contact our customers
  • Their no-questions-asked return policy leads to lots of people who buy the product without reading the information and then return when it doesn’t work which causes constant product de-listing.  We have something like a 10% overall return rate at vs perhaps 1% on our own website.
  • Their review system promotes people who buy without reading the information we include on the listings to leave negative reviews like “didn’t fit”.
  • Some of our listings have been changed by malicious parties
  • We don’t have full control over our listings despite being the product manufacturer and the only ones that sell the products
  • Our products can be  hard to find in search results at times, we believe because Amazon wants to push people to use their advertising system, which, from our experience increases costs without increasing sales.

But what really takes the cake is some serious customer abuse we’ve experienced over the last few weeks, that was made possible by some of the above policies.  We’ve reported this to, in the hopes that they will take action, possibly by terminating the customers account. But we’ll still take the hit.

This has made us question selling on at all, which would be a bummer for everyone that likes to take advantage of free Prime shipping.

Our own website will be the only source for Revere Ware replacement parts for the time being.

    Thank you for still offering these parts!
    What a relief to find these to fix the pans I inherited from my mom – and use on a daily basis.

    I’m happier to buy direct from a vendor instead of via Amazon. Thanks for offering these parts and so much information and history along with the parts themselves!

    I’d rather you remove “for the time being” from that headline. As a former bookseller, I’ve known about Amazon’s penchant for anti-competitive practices for years, and I can’t imagine that they aren’t perfectly willing to use similarly heavy-handed tactics against others as well. Good for you for fighting back!

      As of this moment I consider it temporary pending some consideration of whether I think that is worth the risks and hassle.
