How to meet Amazon’s 12-hour Christmas response time request

How to meet Amazon’s 12-hour Christmas response time request

Amazon has asked sellers to cut average response times in half over the holiday season. Are you set up to fulfil this response time request?

In a message sent out to sellers, Amazon said its research shows “customers who receive responses to their questions within 12 hours are generally more satisfied than those who receive responses between 12-24 hours”.

While Amazon hasn’t made this request mandatory, it raises the bar for response times in December.

Asking you to “respond within hours if not minutes” raises important questions for sellers. Are you set up to handle your customer queries in a timely manner this Christmas? What is your average response time? Can you fulfil Amazon’s request?
